Laser hair removal has allowed millions of men and women eliminate unwanted facial and body hair permanently. You can have this freedom too!
At Renu, we take pride in offering Ottawa’s most reliable and safest laser hair removal services. We utilize the state of the art Lightsheer® Duet™, which is the “Gold Standard” in laser hair removal. Industry experts agree that it is the most advanced, fastest and most reputable laser hair removal technology available today.
Our laser was the first laser approved for both permanency and safety by the FDA and it was the first laser approved to treat all skin types.
Due to it’s larger spot size 22x35mm (opposed to a typical 9x9mm area) combined with innovative vacuum assist technology, Laser hair removal with the Lightsheer® Duet™ not only reduces treatment time of large areas, but is also much less painful than traditional laser systems. Most clients actually refer to this system as “pain free”

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Every hair on the human body grows in cycles. The 3 cycles of hair growth are the anagen stage (growing stage), Catagen stage (the hair shaft is separating from the papilla) and the telogen stage (the hair is completely inactive and detached from the papilla).
By damaging the root of the hair while it’s growing, we can prevent the hair from re-growth. The laser seeks the pigment in the root or the hair and generates heat. This heat damages the hairs in the anagen or growing stage of hair growth. Studies show that to permanently destroy hair, the bulb of the hair needs to be heated to 70 degrees Celsius. The technology behind Lightsheer has proven it’s ability to do so. Since the hair is only permanently eliminated during the anagen stage, and approximately 20% of the hairs are in this stage at any given time, a series of treatments are required for the most desirable results.
The Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Once we have decided that you are a good candidate for laser hair removal, we would proceed with the treatment by ensuring that all surface hair has been shaved prior to treatment. The laser treatment will target and damage the root of the hair leaving behind a stem. Over the course of 2 to 3 weeks post treatment, many of the hairs will appear as if they are growing, when in fact, the skin is naturally pushing this stem up and out. If you were to pull at these hairs 2 to 3 weeks post treatment many of these hairs would simply fall out with no resistance at all. Once many of these hairs fall out, most clients appreciate that there is little hair to manage in between treatments.
There is little discomfort during the procedure, if any, the laser feels like a small pinch. Post treatment the skin will be slightly sensitive. Swelling around the follicle and redness are normal immediately after treatment. Although this irritation tends to subside fairly quickly, we do recommend avoiding any hot water, exposure to the sun, exercise and friction to the area as the heat dissipates from the hair follicle.
