This illustration shows one of the many advantages of the lasers we use at our Markham Laser Hair Removal Clinic - the Chill Tip. This is a sapphire, cooled to a low temperature.
The superficial layers of the skin are cooled and protected whilst the laser is heating the follicles. The side effects of laser hair removal are associated with the heat that is generated.
There are no long term side effects as may be associated with ultraviolet rays and x-rays, both of which increase the risk of cancer. This type of laser treatment has absolutely no risk of sinister complications.
