We know there are SO many options out there. Different clinics, different kinds of lasers, and a huge difference in pricing out there.

So why do we believe that you are in the absolute best hands with us? Many Reasons!

#1 Calgary Laser Hair Removal

To start, we truly understand what clients are looking for. 

When you are choosing a clinic to spend your hard earned money to treat yourself:

You want an impeccably clean clinic

You want treatments that ACTUALLY WORK (or if they won’t work for you, someone who will be honest about limitations!)

You want a business who can guarantee results and that your money is well spent

You want technicians to be on time so that you don’t have to wait

You want to get your service and not be hassled to make more purchases to meet quotas for sales and commission

You want sessions that aren’t painful or difficult to get through

You want a friendly technician who makes you feel cared for, appreciated and never judged (and a few laughs don’t hurt either!)

You want experienced technicians doing your treatments who know their stuff and care about doing a great job!

You want a clinic who is always there for you. There will always be someone knowledgeable available after hours to help you!

You want SAFE treatments. Period. You have heard too many scary stories!

You want top-of-the-line equipment that is proven to work and is well-maintained

Why Else?

Laser Technician owned:

We are laser Technicians who own the clinic. Meaning we know our equipment and know our treatments VERY well. We have been using these machines for many years, day in and day out, and we know all of their little intricacies and how they interact with different types of skin and hair.

Many clinics have a huge gap between the person (or board) who owns the clinic and the people who are doing the treatments. Less distance between ownership and staff/clients means better customer service for you!

The owners train our Technicians:

At Revive, our laser technicians are also trained by the owners of the business, not their peers. This creates much better cohesion in the way treatments are done, and services are explained and offered. This means that every time you come to our clinic, you will receive the exact same treatment. No having to wonder if you are going to get someone new who may not have been trained properly!

Consults are done by Laser Technicians, not salespeople:

Most clinics in Calgary put their staff on commissions and sometimes even sales quotas on top of that.

At Revive, we don’t believe in commission sales. We believe that it is simply impossible for any staff to give completely honest advice (no matter how well-intentioned they are!) to clients when, in the back of their minds, they are trying to figure out how to pay for their mortgage, groceries, vacation, or car loan.

We believe that simply taking away commissions and rewarding staff for making clients happy (not selling them the most products) is the most obvious way to ensure that all clients get nothing but sincere and transparent advice in their consultations.

We are Experts in Laser Hair Removal:

Over the years, despite offering many different and awesome services, we have made laser hair removal our absolute craft; in fact, 90% of our business is Laser Hair Removal. We have spent years checking in with clients after each session (sorry for the detailed questions about your Brazilian hair growth!) and used all of this feedback to constantly push ourselves to ensure that we are learning from every single instance and strive to give treatments as close of perfect as possible. 

We have turned our laser hair removal treatments in Calgary into such a precise science and became so confident in our skills that we decided to GUARANTEE OUR RESULTS! Yep, you heard that right!

We check in with every client 3 weeks after their hair removal appointments to make sure that almost all of the hair has been shed out (which will last for a few weeks). If the results are slightly disappointing (hey… we said TRY to be perfect, but once in a while, we are human!), we will bring our clients back during that same growth cycle for a free touch-up. We then record all new settings and it is usually smooth sailing going forward!

We go way above and beyond for comfort and safety:

At Revive, we kept trying until we figured out the best recipe for comfortable treatments. We believe clients are happy to spend a few extra minutes in their laser session to not be in pain. We offer the most cooling methods and effort in Calgary to keep your laser sessions as easy as possible!

We also take safety extremely seriously. All clients get their skin temperature taken at the end of their treatments to be sure that the skin was not overheated by the laser hair removal treatment, which keeps them safe.

We put our money where our mouths are:

There are so many ads out there from clinics offering cheap deals, “painless hair removal,” and supposedly the best machines. So, if everyone is trying to tell you they are the best choice, how do you know which clinic to trust? 

We thought it was best to just PROVE IT! 

We offer in-depth consultations to explain the laser hair removal process, the pros and cons of different equipment, what to expect, and more. Then we are more than happy to offer you a free test spot so that you can tour the clinic, meet the staff, and try out the laser before making any kind of financial commitments. If you still aren’t 100% sure after all of that, you can even wait for 2-3 weeks to see that your skin is smooth and hair-free before deciding!

Feel free to try our treatment before you commit to a purchase.

Our FAQ's

Most common asked questions by our clients

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

The laser targets the melanin (pigment cells) in the hair follicles. The pigment in those follicles absorbs the laser’s energy until the follicle is destroyed, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.

These laser treatment sessions are then repeated (on average) 7-12 times, at 4-8 week intervals, to target the attached hairs at each growth cycle (the Anagen hair growth phase), until most of the hair follicles have been destroyed.

After several treatments, patients can expect a significant reduction (80-95%) in the thickness and amount of hair. Any hair that is left is typically lighter colored and fine. The hair that was beneath the surface of the skin no longer has a follicle and your body will eject it over the next 2-3 weeks after the treatment. It may look like growing hair, but simply exfoliate or continue shaving until the dead hair has all fallen out.

What can I expect during and after treatment?

You must shower or bath and shave thoroughly within 24 hours prior to your laser treatment. The treatment will be most effective on clean, untanned skin with NO hair growth above the surface.

Do not wax, pluck or use hair removal creams within four weeks prior to the appointment, as the hairs have to be attached to the follicle in order the treatment to work.

The technician will use cold packs and a Cryo air cooling machine to make the procedure more comfortable. You will feel a warm, prickly feeling as the laser delivers the energy into the hair follicles. This sensation is usually very tolerable.

Afterward, your skin may look slightly red and might have small, bumps where the follicles are, which is completely normal. Many clients have no noticeable effects afterward. The redness and bumps will fade over the next few hours. Cold packs and an over-the-counter Cortisone cream can help as well if needed.

Avoid hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, or any sweat on the treated area for 24 hours post-treatment, or until the redness and bumps have completely disappeared.

The hair that was beneath the surface of the skin no longer has a follicle and your body will slowly eject it approx. 2-3 weeks after the treatment. It may look like growing hair, but simply exfoliate or continue shaving until the dead hair has all fallen out.

Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?

‘You may have heard that Laser Hair Removal is painful, or perhaps experienced it yourself. Most clinics do not offer much in the way of pain management, but at Revive, making your experience comfortable is our prioroty!

Some laser devices can definitely cause a considerable amount of pain, but our Fotona ND:Yag and Quanta Alexandrite are powerful, medical grade lasers. Because of this power, they don’t need to use as much energy to destroy your follicles, meaning LESS PAIN for you. Their heat also travels deeper into the skin, which is more comfortable than cheaper technologies like IPL. The technician will also use cold packs/cold rollers and a Cryo air cooling machine (which blows freezing cold air next to the laser beam) to make the procedure even more comfortable.

You will feel a warm, light prickly feeling as the laser delivers the energy into the hair follicles. This sensation is usually completely tolerable and we get fantastic feedback from our clients, especially those who have received laser hair removal in the past with different machines.

Is Laser hair removal actually permanent?

A good quality, medical grade, well-maintained laser and proper settings should permanently reduce the amount of hair growth.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for cheaper, older, poorly maintained machines and some older IPL’s. Knowing the proper settings is also extremely important to the outcome of the treatments and not all technicians are adequately trained or experienced.

Many areas of the body can absolutely experience permanent hair reduction, but it will always be to varying degrees, depending on how good of a candidate you are. Most clients who have dark hair will eventually reach approximately an 85-95% decrease that is permanent, although some clients may want touch-up treatments from time to time on the handful of hairs left over. The hair will grow in patchy, more fine and thin after each hair removal treatment.

There are some rare instances where the body creates brand new follicles after the have been destroyed, but this is typically due to hormone imbalances and typically occurs only on the chin for women and on the back for men.

Who can benefit from Laser Hair Removal?

The ND:Yag laser is the deepest, which means that is also the safest type of laser. It can safely treat people with very dark skin and dark hair.

Natural blondes can also benefit from laser hair removal! Most blonde clients can remove most of their Brazilian, underarm and lower leg hair with our Alexandrite laser!

Very light blonde, red and grey hair unfortunately not be treated with any laser, as there is not enough pigment in the follicles to adequately absorb the laser’s energy.

Why did a friend of mine only need 2-3 laser treatments but I require many more?

Everyone has a different amount of hair. While we have seen a handful of clients lucky enough to complete their hair removal in under 5 sessions, this is very rare and should never be expected. These clients has very little hair to begin with. Most clients will require an average of 8-12 sessions, with some clients who have very dense hair and more than one hair per follicle may require more than 12. As long as the hair is shedding within 2-3 weeks after every treatment, you can be confident that your treatment is effective and you will simply need to complete more sessions until most of the hair is reduced.

Does Laser work on blondes?

While most types of lasers cannot remove light brown or medium/dark blonde hair, the Quanta Alexandrite has proven to be very effective in removing medium to dark blonde hair for most of our blonde clients. Many of our blonde clients have been able to remove approx. 75% of the hair on the areas of the body where hair grows darker and thicker, such as Brazilian, Underarms and Lower legs. We always suggest a test spot with the laser to ensure that the treatment will work for you before purchasing treatments. Red haired clients have been able to experience similar results.  Unfortunately, there is currently no technology which can remove light blonde or white hair.

What happens if I become pregnant? Will all of the removed hair return?

Whether you are in the middle of laser sessions or have completed the full course of laser treatments before pregnancy, don’t worry! Your hormones will likely not regrow all of the treated hair, as long as your treatments were done with a quality laser. It is likely that you may need a touch up session after your baby is born, only because it is physically impossible to remove 100% of your hair follicles with laser. Some of the dormant follicles may start producing some hairs due to your hormone levels changing after you have given birth, but by no means will you undo all of the laser sessions you had prior to pregnancy. Our clients who have been through the experience reported that it felt like the body hair had “come back” during their pregnancy, but then it all shed out and returned to its pre-pregnancy state after the birth. The same thing happens with the hair on our heads, as we stop shedding hair during pregnancy and then the shedding process resumes a few months after baby is born. We recommend that women should wait to begin their touch-up treatments until hormones levels have returned to normal.

Did some research on places to get laser hair removal done, these ladies were close and had amazing reviews so I gave them a try. They are so knowledgeable, friendly, and professional! The space is gorgeous, clean and well organized. The location is very accessible, and every experience here has been amazing. So far I’ve had laser hair removal, tattoo removal (as part of a trial for a new machine they were testing), and a facial. I have never left with anything less than a big smile on my face, and the results have been wonderful. I will be back soon ladies, thank you so much!

I highly recommend Amilie and Alaina! They are personable and honest and I appreciate the way they answer questions and inform me, without pushing products or treatment sales in the process. After attending various places throughout the city for laser hair removal, I am impressed with their machine as well as the lengths they will go to, to ensure the procedure is as painless as possible for clients. Prices are reasonable, customer service is incredible, and the experience has been nothing short of positive each time!
