Laser Hair Removal Laval and Montreal

Basic Principles of Photoepilation using SharpLight Systems.

Show off your smooth skin after SharpLight’s professional laser hair removal/reduction treatments.

SharpLight’s innovative and safe med-aesthetic systems offer excellent, lasting hair reduction/removal results with minimum discomfort in a relatively small number of treatment sessions. More specifically, SharpLight’s advanced technologies, based on pulsed light or photo epilation, enable personalized, precise treatments that achieve effective, permanent results. Using these technologies, the hair reduction is achieved when the energy is transformed to heat in the active growth follicles, coagulating the follicle and limiting re-growth. The technologies’ high heat power delivers noticeable results in less time – and these results are targeted so as to protect the surrounding skin. We offer our services to clients living in Laval and Montreal
