Laser Hair Removal

Remove unwanted hair faster and more effectively with the Alexandrite laser and the Nd:YAG laser.

Olakino Laser + Skin offers the safest, most effective and efficient method of permanent hair removal available today: the Cynosure Elite™ Laser. Cynosure hair removal lasers are FDA approved and effective for all skin types from fair to dark.

A patch test will be done to determine your suitability for the treatment. We will customize your treatment program in order to achieve the results you are looking for.

Hair can be removed from almost anywhere on the body. The most popular areas for laser hair removal are the face, underarms, bikini region and legs. Men also enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal, with the neck, throat, and back being common treatment areas.

The Elite is a true laser, unlike the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system, and is designed to deliver a specific wavelength of light to achieve maximum effect and minimize side-effects.

Which is better: Laser or Electrolysis?

Laser hair removal and electrolysis are both effective when performed correctly. Laser hair removal works very well on darker hair. Lasers are used wherever possible because they allow removal of the hair in the fastest, most efficient way.

For fine blonde, red or grey hair laser will not be effective and electrolysis is a better option.

Permanent hair reduction can always be achieved at Olakino Laser + Skin using either laser or electrolysis. In many cases, using a combination produces the best results. A treatment plan will be customized just for you.


Laser hair removal offers permanent hair reduction. Experts believe 1-5% of hair will not respond to laser treatments. We will permanently remove any of these remaining hairs with electrolysis.

Avoid sun exposure. You cannot wax, tweeze, thread or have electrolysis for 4 weeks before a treatment. To manage hair between appointments, please shave or trim.
After a treatment the skin may be red and bumpy because it is irritated, and this is absolutely normal. We recommend protecting the treated skin from the sun. Avoid hot tubs and saunas for 24-48 hours. The area should be moisturized with clear aloe gel.

After your initial treatment, you should enjoy a significant reduction of hair. However, it will take 2-4 weeks for the treated hair to push its way to the surface and fall out.

The treatment does have a slight prickly or stinging sensation. Most of our clients are able to tolerate the treatment without difficulty. However, every person’s level of sensitivity is different and treatment areas may vary. Our unique Cynosure laser system can quickly alleviate discomfort with a stream of cold air, which is used in conjunction with the laser. Topical numbing cream is another option to combat discomfort.

On average most clients will require 5-8 treatments. Finer hair and dark skin clients may require 6-10 treatments. If you suffer from a hormone imbalance you may require additional touchup treatments.

The general guideline is 4-6 weeks for the face, bikini, underarms, arms and 8-10 weeks for the back, legs and truck of body.

No, for fine blonde, red or grey hair laser will not be effective. We can remove this type of hair with electrolysis.
Almost all areas of the body with the exception of the skin below the eyebrows as it is too close to the eyes. The most popular areas that are treated are the upper lip, chin, underarm areas, legs and bikini areas for women. For men, the chest, back, legs, and arms are commonly treated.

Intense pulsed light IPL is not a laser per se. It’s an intense light source. What makes IPL different from laser is that in basic terms, IPL is far less effective than Laser Hair Removal. The energy is produced by a lamp, a little like a light bulb, and produces a variety of light waves, meaning that it is more diffuse and less powerful.

A laser is an intensely concentrated beam of light. The energy is extremely focused offering more powerful, accurate effective results. Our Cynosure dual platform laser uses a single, precise wavelength that targets the melanin in the hair follicle exactly – no hit and miss. This exact wavelength provides a more effective treatment for hair removal than IPL. More effective individual laser hair removal treatments means fewer overall treatments are needed to achieve your desired results.

Starting at just $80*, our laser hair removal treatments are tailored to meet your needs and desires. Each body area will require its own pricing schedule, which we will discuss during your complimentary consultation. If you’re booking a 5 session package you can save 20%! Payment is offered in two instalments – the first instalment is due on your first session, and the second instalment is due on the second session.

Our Lasers

Cynosure Elite+™ Dual Platform

Our Cynosure Elite+ Dual Platform can effectively treat any skin type with great results.

This revolutionary technology combines two optimal laser wavelengths in one machine, the 755-nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser:

755nm Alexandrite

  • Gold standard wavelength for skin types I – III.
  • High melanin absorption and depth of penetration.

1064nm Nd:YAG

  • Gold standard and safest wavelength for skin types IV-VI and tanned skin.
  • Low absorption of melanin, deep penetrating wavelength.
  • Bypasses melanin in the skin and delivers energy to the depth of hair shaft.

The wavelengths on our laser hair removal can also be switched during a single procedure, allowing for the use of the most appropriate laser for any given hair or skin type.

Combined with the Cynosure SmartCool® Advanced Dermal Therapeutic Cooling System, the Cynosure Elite+ removes unwanted hair with unsurpassed efficiency and client comfort. The SmartCool provides a continuous flow of chilled air before, during, and after your laser hair-removal treatment, while protecting the tissue and skin from thermal damage. Ultimately, this results in a much more comfortable hair-removal experience for you, our client.

After one laser treatment at Olakino Laser + Skin you will see and feel the difference.

IPL vs. Laser Treatments

Cost Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

While laser hair removal may seem expensive upfront, it can be cost-effective in the long term.

Continuous spending on temporary hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams can add up over time, making laser hair removal a more economical option.

Lifetime estimate:

$50 every 6 weeks for 60 years = $24,000

$5-$10 every month for 60 years = $3600 – $7200

Depending on the body area, you might spend $1500 – $3000
