Skinworks: The Art of Beautiful Medicine

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is an easy and affordable way to disable hair follicles and stop re-growth. This technology is the ultimate alternative to plucking, shaving, waxing and painful electrolysis, creating the long-term elimination of hair quickly and safely. Skinworks uses the FDA approved Lightsheer Diode laser, the gold standard in permanent hair reduction. Dr. Jang was one of the first dermatologists in B.C. offering laser hair removal and continues to lead the way with the next generation of hair removal laser technology.

How it works

Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that is passed through the skin and preferentially absorbed by its target, be it an unwanted blood vessel, birthmark, tattoo, or in this case, hair. The laser used in hair removal targets the melanin (colour) in the hair follicle, damaging the follicle and removing the hair.

Preparation & Treatment

All hair in the area to be treated is closely trimmed and an anaesthetic cream can be applied one hour prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.


The treated area will be minimally red but most activities can be resumed immediately afterwards. Results can be seen two to three weeks post-treatment.


Because hairs cycle through growth phases at different times, more than one session is required for satisfactory reduction and elimination. Depending on the area being treated, we recommend an average of four to eight sessions spaced two to three months apart for successful long-term hair reduction. Some future touch-ups may be required.
