Laser Bee Clinic – Laser Specialists in Toronto!

Laser Bee Clinic is focused on Laser Hair Removal for both male and female clients. Besides the laser the clinic provides services for eyebrows and eyelashes. They provide laser hair removal for all skin colours and being people of southasian decent, we have all kinds of skin tones. Using which type of laser is important. At the Laser Bee Clinic, the Soprano Ice laser is used.

Soprano ICE is the most complete and effective laser hair removal solution available today. ICE™ is an advanced cooling technology that cools the skin during treatment for longer periods of time. The ICE™ tech cold sapphire tip minimizes the risk of burns on the skin surface while maintaining heat within the dermis where hair follicles are treated. Contact Cooling increases patient comfort, making treatments more enjoyable than ever before. By incorporating multiple laser wavelengths and technologies, Soprano ICE allows practitioners to treat the widest range of patients and hair types all year round.

When I visited the Laser Bee Clinic, the owner Diane Stepanova greeted me and in an instant she told me that she was going to use the Saprano Ice laser according to my skin tone which was a IV according to her.

So the skin types are categorized in the following way:

Fitzpatrick skin type
Skin type Typical features Tanning ability
 I Pale white skin, blue/green eyes, blond/red hair Always burns, does not tan
II Fair skin, blue eyes Burns easily, tans poorly
III Darker white skin Tans after initial burn
IV Light brown skin Burns minimally, tans easily
V Brown skin Rarely burns, tans darkly easily
VI Dark brown or black skin Never burns, always tans darkly

It is very important to know your skin type and to always research before using any laser services. Diane, made sure that I was comfortable and told me that she would begin the process. The overall process was not painful at all, and there were a few pinches here and there, but I was told the pinches were a good sign as the darker were being targeted.

This was my first time using the Saprano Ice Laser, and the procedure was fast, with no downtime, painless and can be used on all areas of the body.

Brow Lift: Another amazing service that Laser Bee provides under The Arch Toronto is Lash and Brow Lifts. This was the first time, I tried this service. As southasians we tend to have thick hair generally, however, even with thick eyebrows, the brow lift does wonders!! The best thing about this service is that all the products are Canadian made as Laser Bee supports local made products. The products are from The Lash Shop in Canada. The whole process took a good 10-15 minutes and the results were beautiful!

Overall, visiting Laser Bee was a fun experience as being women of colour we start learning more about the different lasers and procedures out there for us. The last few years have been revolutionary for coloured women as more and more lasers are coming out that cater to our skin types. Visiting Laser Bee Clinic showed me a painless laser experience for my skin type as well as I tried a new service (brow lift) that was completely safe and the products are local friendly!
