Laser Hair Removal at Reimagine Clinic: Your Ultimate Guide

Discover the advanced treatment solution for unwanted hair in Montreal. Experience the precision and effectiveness of the Candela Gentlemax laser system.

What’s Laser Hair Removal?

Reimagine Clinic in Montreal offers laser hair removal, a cutting-edge solution to get rid of unwanted hair from various body parts. If traditional methods like shaving, waxing, or tweezing aren’t cutting it for you, our service could be your ideal alternative. Using the state-of-the-art Candela Gentlemax laser system, we ensure precision, speed, and lasting results. Learn more about laser treatments at Reimagine Clinic.

How It Works

The principle behind laser hair removal is the targeting of melanin (pigment) in hair follicles. The Candela Gentlemax emits a beam of light absorbed by the hair’s melanin. This light energy converts to heat, damaging the hair follicle and inhibiting future growth. It’s a balance of science and technique, ensuring the skin remains undamaged while effectively targeting hair.


The average cost of a laser hair removal session at Reimagine Clinic varies based on the treatment area’s size and the number of sessions needed. On average, treatments in 2020 cost around $389 per session. For an accurate estimate tailored to your needs, request a consultation with us.

The Procedure

During your session at Reimagine Clinic, you’ll be provided with protective eyewear. A cooling gel may be applied to the treatment area, enhancing the laser’s effectiveness and protecting your skin. The Candela Gentlemax laser is then used, with each pulse targeting multiple hairs. Depending on the treatment area, sessions can last from a few minutes to over an hour.

The Benefits and Side Effects


  • Precision: Targets dark, coarse hairs without affecting surrounding skin.
  • Speed: Swift treatments, even for larger areas.
  • Predictability: Consistent results with an average of 3 to 7 sessions.

Side Effects: While laser hair removal is generally safe, some might experience temporary redness, swelling, and discomfort post-treatment. Rare side effects include pigment changes, blistering, or changes in skin texture. At Reimagine Clinic, our experts ensure you’re informed about all potential outcomes.

What to Expect

After your session, the treated area might feel sunburned for a day or two. Applying ice packs or moisturizers can help alleviate this. Over the next few weeks, treated hair falls out. It’s essential to avoid sun exposure and use an SPF30 sunscreen to protect the treated area. For optimal results, you’ll need multiple treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Laser vs. Other Types of Hair Removal

While other methods like electrolysis offer permanent hair removal, they can be more time-consuming, expensive, and painful. Laser hair removal, especially with the Candela Gentlemax, offers a balance of speed, effectiveness, and comfort. For those in the trans and gender-expansive communities, laser hair removal can significantly help alleviate feelings of dysphoria.

Before the treatment, the area to be treated will be cleansed. 

The laser treatment will take place in a room set up specifically for laser treatments. Everyone in the room must wear protective eyewear during the procedure. To perform the procedure, the skin is held taut and the skin is treated with the laser. Many patients say that the laser pulses feel like warm pinpricks or a rubber band being snapped against the skin.

A laser removes hair by vaporizing it. This causes small plumes of smoke that have a sulfur-like smell.

How long your treatment lasts depends on the size of the area being treated. Treating the upper lip takes minutes. If you are having a large area like the back or legs treated, your treatment may last more than an hour.

To avoid possible side effects, all patients need to protect their skin from the sun. After laser hair removal, you should:

– Avoid direct sunlight from hitting your treated skin.

– Not use a tanning bed, sun lamp, or any other indoor tanning equipment.

– Follow your estheticians after-care instructions.

You will see some redness and swelling after treatment. This often looks like a mild sunburn. Applying a cool compress can help reduce your discomfort.

No, laser hair removal generally does not require any real downtime. Immediately after having laser hair removal, your treated skin will be red and swollen. Despite this, most people return to their everyday activities.

You will likely see the results immediately after treatment. The results vary from patient to patient. The color and thickness of your hair, area treated, type of laser used, and color of your skin all affect the results. You can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after the first treatment.

To remove the hair, most patients need 2 to 6 laser treatments. After finishing the treatments, most patients do not see any hair on the treated skin for several months or even years. When the hair regrows, there tends to be less of it. The hairs also tend to be finer and lighter in color.

Most patients remain hair free for months or even years. When some of the hair regrows, it will likely be less noticeable. To keep the area free of hair, a patient may need maintenance laser treatments.

The most common side effects are minor and last 1 to 3 days. These side effects include:

– Discomfort

– Swelling

– Redness

Other possible side effects include:

– Blistering

– Herpes simplex (cold sores) outbreaks

– Infections

– Scarring

– Skin lightening or darkening

In time, skin color tends to return to normal. Some changes to skin color, however, are permanent. This is why seeing a medical doctor who is skilled in laser treatments and has in-depth knowledge of the skin is so important.

Following both the before-treatment instructions and after-treatment instructions will greatly reduce your risk of side effects.

This varies from patient to patient. Removing hair often requires a series of laser treatments. Most patients can have laser hair removal once every 4 to 6 weeks.
