Rid yourself of unwanted body hair with professional hair removal services at Uptown Spa in Toronto. Our services include waxing, electrolysis, laser hair removal, and threading, and our expert estheticians can help you choose the hair removal method that is best for you. If you are tired of staying on top of depilation methods like shaving or trimming weekly or even daily, or hair removal creams that never seem quite effective enough, we can help you find the epilation method that is right for you, helping keep your body beautifully hair-free, longer.

One of the most common areas of concern for women is the upper lip. Facial hair can be embarrassing for women, but Uptown Spa can help with a selection of the most popular hair removal technologies. Our licensed estheticians can help you choose how to remove your facial hair for a smoother look. If unwanted body hair is your concern, we can help you find the best way to remove back hair, chest hair, and arm hair. If you are sick of shaving your legs, with all those nicks and cuts, we can help you find permanent or long-lasting hair removal solutions to keep your legs hair-free. If your pubic hair is getting out of control, Uptown Spa can help with a bikini or Brazilian wax, or for the men, the popular manzillian. For ear hair, nose hair, or other types of unwanted hair, speak to your Uptown esthetician about which hair removal solution is best for you.

Electrolysis is recognized by some regulators as a permanent hair removal method, and this procedure remains popular in the spa. Electrolysis can remove ingrown hairs as well as visible hair, including eyebrows, using chemical or heat energy to destroy the hair follicle. The treatments vary depending on area and the individual’s particular needs, but the sessions usually last between fifteen minutes and an hour and are repeated every week or every other week. Within one to four years, the hair removal can become permanent, with no more shaving, ever! Cost of electrolysis varies by treatment time, with a discounted price on longer treatment sessions. Your esthetician can give you an idea of the cost and number of treatments when you visit us for a personal consultation.

Laser hair removal and intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal are similar in that they use light to heat the hair follicle. Because they use certain wavelengths of light, the devices are able to heat the dark melanin in the follicle without heating the surrounding skin, helping minimize pain and discomfort during the treatment. Some clients prefer laser hair removal because it causes less discomfort than electrolysis, but laser hair removal does tend to work better on darker hair, so it may not be suitable for everyone. Depending on the area and the individual’s particular needs, the laser hair removal sessions may take from twenty minutes to an hour or longer. Treatments are usually every four to six weeks, and the results of laser hair removal can last longer each time, leaving some people virtually hair-free. Uptown Spa’s laser hair removal prices vary by area and discounted packages are available for multiple treatment sessions. Your esthetician can give you a better idea of the cost and number of treatments when you visit us for a consultation.

Body waxing remains a popular treatment at Uptown Spa and is a great way for women and men to target unwanted body hair and facial hair on their arms, legs, chest, bikini line, upper lip, or other areas. For this type of treatment, your esthetician will use heated wax to grip the excess body hair, pulling the hair and the root out to leave smoother skin. Hair may not regrow for two to eight weeks, although this does vary from person to person, and after multiple waxing treatments hair may begin to grow in softer and lighter. The cost of waxing varies depending on area treated, and your professional esthetician can tell you about discounted prices for waxing packages such as a full body wax for men or women.


Uptown Spa’s clients also find threading to be an effective hair removal method. Most often used on smaller areas such as the upper lip, chin, or toe, or for shaping eyebrows, threading uses a twisted thread to pluck multiple hairs out including the root. Threaded hairs may not regrow fully for two to six weeks, although this varies from person to person, and the hair may begin to grow finer and sparser after multiple treatments. The cost of threading varies depending on the area treated, and your expert esthetician can give you more information.
