Laser Hair Removal Treatment in Montreal
What does laser hair removal do?
What areas of the body can you get laser hair removal on?
Laser hair removal treatment can help men and women eliminate unwanted hair on any part of the body. The specialized laser is approved by Health Canada. The best part? This treatment can be an effective method to reduce or even eliminate body hair in areas small and large! These are some of the most popular treatment regions.
Upper lip (mustache), chin, sideburns, cheeks, forehead, ears, nose, and full face.
Torso and arms:
Front and back of the neck, back, chest, abdomen (trail), underarms (armpits), forearms, and hands.
Legs and hips area:
Bikini line (full bikini, full Brazilian and perianal), legs, buttocks, tights, lower legs, feet, and toes.
To achieve the best results, it’s important to target hair follicles in the anagen or active growth phase. Typically, only 15% of hair follicles are in this phase, which is why we recommend a series of 6-8 treatments to ensure that you achieve the lasting results you desire and make this long-term investment truly worthwhile for you.
If you choose the convenience, effectiveness, and permanence of laser hair removal, you’ll be hair-free and confident in your own smooth skin at all times! That’s right! No more hit-n-miss shaving in the shower (without glasses), no more wincing from waxing and plucking, no more wasting your money on products!

Frequently asked questions about laser hair removal treatments
What can I expect from permanent laser hair removal treatment?
- During your free consultation, our trained professionals will assess your skin type, hair color, and medical history to determine if the laser is the best option for you and develop an estimated treatment plan to reach your goals.
- Before your laser hair removal session, you may be recommended to avoid sun exposure, waxing, and plucking for a few weeks. We also suggest shaving the treated area a day or two before the procedure for effective results.
- Results will vary from person to person, but after your initial treatment, you can expect a decrease in hair growth that will continue to improve with further treatments.
- Our team will provide you with post-care instructions. Mild symptoms such as inflammation and redness may occur around hair follicles, but these symptoms usually go away within 1-3 days.
- After 6 to 8 treatments, most patients will experience permanent hair loss. The sessions are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart for effective reduction of hair growth.

How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of laser hair removal varies based on the size of the treatment area. Larger areas require more pulses and time for treatment. At Ideal Body Clinic, we offer the most accessible prices in Montreal.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The most common sensation experienced during the procedure is a minor pinching sensation, similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Absolutely! Our professional team utilizes appropriate equipment, and we only use lasers approved by Health Canada. The laser targets the hair follicles with light energy while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
Which areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can be performed on any area of the body. The most commonly requested treatment areas include the legs, bikini line, underarms, back, and face.
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
Before your initial laser hair removal session, it is crucial to avoid waxing or plucking for at least 3 weeks. Additionally, it is recommended to apply sunscreen throughout the course of treatments to prevent skin hypersensitivity. After the treatment, you still have to avoid the sun because the skin is sensitive and can react to the sun. Keeping your skin hydrated is also very important!
How many treatments will I need?
The number of laser hair removal treatments needed depends on the specific treatment area. Generally, it takes around 6 sessions for areas like the legs, bikini line, and underarms. Other areas affected by hormonal changes may require up to 8 treatments. The sessions are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart for effective reduction of hair growth.
Is there downtime after laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal typically doesn’t require downtime. Although your skin may appear red and swollen immediately after the treatment, most patients can resume their regular daily activities without any issues.
Is laser hair removal effective for everyone?
Hair with lighter colors makes it more difficult for the laser to detect the pigment and effectively disable the hair follicle. Laser hair removal works best on hair with pigment. Therefore, grey and light blond hair can be challenging to treat since the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle.
Is laser hair removal a permanent solution?
Laser hair removal will significantly reduce hair growth in the treated areas. While some areas may experience permanent hair removal, others may require occasional maintenance sessions. After each visit, hair growth will continue to diminish, and you’ll need fewer sessions over time.
Keep in mind that hair growth can vary depending on factors such as age, weight, metabolism, hormones, medications, and ethnic origin. However, our laser hair removal treatment is designed to effectively address these factors and provide you with a long-term solution to unwanted hair.
