Types of Hair Removal Treatments

The topic of removing unwanted hair has occupied women's minds for ages. Whether for cultural, medical, aesthetic or hygienic reasons, hair removal has been the subject of discussion in many female circles. More recently, removal of unwanted hair has become an area of interest among men too. Shear Elegance Salon and Spa offers men and women various options for hair removal in London Ontario including facial threading, waxing and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments.

Facial Threading:

This traditional technique has been practiced for ages in India, China and the Middle East. With facial threading hair removal, London Ontario customers can expect individual facial hairs to be quickly and easily removed using a 100% cotton thread that is tightly wound. The thread is twisted and pulled along the skin surface of unwanted hair, lifting hair directly from the follicle. As the facial hair is removed, only a slight pinch is felt. Facial threading is the perfect solution for those who are sensitive to waxing or who have skin that has been sunburned or otherwise damaged. As part of the advantages of facial threading hair removal, London Ontario customers can feel assured that the procedure will be quick and sanitary and no chemicals will be applied to the skin.


The advantage of waxing as a method of hair removal is that it can be used anywhere on the body. When choosing waxing for hair removal, London Ontario Shear Elegance clients can choose from hair removal services for the face, legs, arms, chest, back, underarms, neck, shoulders, stomach, and bikini area. Regular waxing makes hair grow back slower and finer, giving clients weeks of freedom from unwanted hair. By making waxing a part of their regular routine for hair removal, London Ontario clients can also expect the pain level associated with waxing to diminish following each visit. At Shear Elegance Salon and Spa, we use only the finest waxes and emollients to leave your skin silky smooth and luxuriously soft with minimal discomfort.

Intense Pulse Light treatments (IPL):

Intense Pulse Light treatments (IPL) can be just the right hair removal method for those who find that shaving or waxing do not provide long enough periods of hair-free skin. While it is not a one-time permanent solution for hair removal, London Ontario Shear Elegance customers can expect to apply this treatment less frequently than shaving or waxing, namely visiting the salon between 8-12 times every 6 weeks or so, depending on the nature and type of a client’s skin, skin pigmentation, age and sex.
IPL devices employ a highly effective technology that releases precision-controlled, high-intensity pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the pigment in hair. The hair follicle is heated up, destroying the cells responsible for the hair growth and preventing further hair growth. As a result, long term hair reduction is achieved.
When choosing Intense Pulse Light treatments (IPL) for hair removal, London Ontario Shear Elegance customers can feel safe knowing that all treatments are carried out by certified IPL technicians who use the latest technology by Dermeo from France.
