1. Is the treatment painful? Is it safe?

It is very safe and FDA approves the procedure as permanent. I follow the Alberta Health Guidelines for infection control, such as:

  • ​Single use, sterile disposable needles;
  • Chemical sterilization of instruments;
  • Universal precautions for cleanliness and hygiene​ 


As for pain...the type of hair, where it's located and the individuals pain threshold are all factors which determine the level of sensation experienced. Some clients find it relaxing and almost fall asleep, while others find it to be more sensitive. I will work with everyone individually to make the treatment as comfortable & effective as possible. I utilize over the counter topical anaesthetic for sensitive areas such as the upper lip to help manage sensation. However there will be a certain amount of feeling for the treatment to be effective.
