About laser hair removal in Victoria.
Laser hair removal has been one of the world’s most popular cosmetic treatments for more than two decades, and Cosmedica was the first Dermatologist centre to offer the treatment to Victoria and Vancouver Island patients more than 20 years ago. Using the excel HR™ laser hair removal system from Cutera, we offer safe, effective, and comfortable laser hair removal treatments for all skin types.

- excess hair
How it works:
Using the excel HR™ laser—the gold standard in medical-grade laser hair removal—we can permanently reduce unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body, no matter your skin type. Laser hair removal works by emitting a concentrated wavelength of laser energy, which is absorbed by the targeted pigment found in the hair follicle. The follicle is effectively destroyed, preventing future hair growth. Because hair grows in cycles, several treatment sessions are required for hair reduction. We ask that before treatment you shave only and avoid anything which would remove hair follicles such as tweezing and waxing.
