At MD Wellness Solutions, we believe that your laser hair removal should be comfortable, fast, and effective. That’s why Dr. Tkatch uses only premium Cynosure EliteIQ lasers coupled with state of the art Zimmer cooling for your treatments.

Smooth skin is sexy. Stubble, not so much. Laser hair removal eliminates years of waxing, shaving, and hoping “show through” doesn’t occur during your tropical vacation. You are left with impossibly smooth, gorgeous skin that is ready when you are—no prep time necessary.

I just had my first treatment!! Laser hair “down there”!! Man did I work myself up but it really was NOTHING!!! The technician was amazing and talked though what she was doing as she went, which I found very comforting. I will be recommending MD Wellness to whoever will listen!!

Why choose MD Wellness Solutions for laser hair removal?

You could have your laser hair removal treatments in a variety of settings, from a standalone provider with a single machine in a home studio to a franchise operation offering “75% off laser hair removal.” The solo provider likely does not have any medical training and you may experience a higher rate of complications or non-response to treatment. The national franchise option does not have a physician on site supervising your treatments and many people find the pricing structure difficult to figure out. At MD Wellness Solutions, all your treatments are supervised by Dr. Tkatch and our pricing is fair and easy to understand. We offer medically-supervised laser hair removal treatments delivered on top notch lasers by medical laser estheticians and registered nurses. Why go anywhere else?

Why choose laser hair removal?

How much hair we produce is determined by genetics, hormones, gender and ethnicity. How we feel about it is deeply personal.

  • Smooth, stubble-free skin = body confidence.
  • Freedom from shaving, waxing and tweezing.
  • Save time each morning so you can hit the snooze button one more time!
  • Save money. Good razors and waxing are expensive recurring costs.
  • Decreased ingrown hairs and infections. No more irritated skin and no more razor cuts!

Your skin will feel soft and silky smooth, need we say more?

How does laser hair removal work?

Lasers target the pigment in the hair follicle. As the follicle absorbs the energy, its ability to grow hair is impeded. Hair growth occurs in cycles, with some active and some dormant; hence, a series of treatments are necessary to attain permanent hair reduction. The EliteIQ laser combines an excellent safety profile with results that have set the industry standard. Dare to go bare!

Will laser hair removal work for me?

Most people are candidates for laser hair removal. Exceptions include people with history of certain medical conditions and medication usage. If you have extremely dark skin or very light-coloured hair then laser hair removal may not be your best choice. Prior to your laser hair removal treatment a medical history will be taken and we will test patch a small area of your skin to ensure you are a good candidate for treatment.

I’ve had laser hair removal before and it didn’t work for me!

We see a lot of people in our clinic who have had unsuccessful treatments elsewhere and we are able to treat most of them successfully. Reasons why your treatment elsewhere may not have worked include:

  • Budget, low-powered laser equipment
  • Wrong laser for your skin type
  • Technician not well trained to adjust laser to your skin
  • Treatments not performed on an appropriate schedule
  • Underlying undiagnosed and untreated hormonal condition

I’ve got dark skin, can you safely treat me?

Dark skin, whether due to tanning or ethnicity, poses challenges for laser hair removal that require an experienced treatment team with the right laser technology. We offer both a Cynosure 755nm laser appropriate for lighter skin, and a 1064nm YAG laser, the only type of laser that is safe and effective for darker or tanned skin. This means we can offer you laser hair removal year round, no matter your skin colouring. Don’t trust your skin to just anyone or any laser, allow the experts in skin health to get you hair free.

How much will laser hair removal cost?

Cost varies between $85 per treatment for a small area like the upper lip, to $350 for a larger area like a man’s back. We recommend a series of 6 treatments for great results for most people.

Over the long term, laser hair removal costs much less than shaving or waxing as these options require an ongoing investment of time and money. It is definitely a smart financial choice!

I’m nervous about getting naked for laser hair removal.
