looking in the Toronto area


#1

Does anyone have any “words of wisdom” to pass on?? I am looking into laser hair removal and there are a number of clinics in the Toronto/Mississauga area. I would greatly appreciate any recommendations of places that are good, and also any warnings of places to stay away from!

Thanks in advance!

I, too, am searching for a laser hair removal clinic. I have no first-hand or second-hand knowledge - yet.

I found www.solish.com on the web. The Women’s College Hospital is a reputable one in Toronto, but I am fearful the fees are high. I need to contact them to find out more info.

And I got the following reply from:
d3@laser-hairremoval.ca

I’d watch out-- anyone who talks up their laser so much over the other ones is usually a bit too aggressive in trying to get your money instead of giving you good service.

An article on Flare magazine, April 2003 (Canadian publication) discusses laser hair removal on page 100-106. It mentions a Dr Lisa Kellett at SpaMedica on 66 Avenue Road in Toronto.
