Male Brazilian via Laser Hair Removal – Toronto Prices

Our blog has received a lot of attention and traffic as it relates to Male Brazilian via laser hair removal. Last year we did 3 posts on the topic, and of course our posts focus on the pricing aspect. Our posts from last year included – Getting a Male Brazilian in Calgary with Prices back in Jan, a follow-up post to that which featured an update from a Calgary based company called The Gateway Spa for Men which does this procedure and a post about prices in Vancouver of getting a male brazilian.

So let’s take a look at what we found in Canada’s most populous city, Toronto, Ontario

The Laser Clinic – They break down the prices very nicely. Prices ranging from basic bikini and base of penis at $200 per session to basically removing it all for $300 per session.

Evropa Laser & Waxing Studio – They charge $200 for brazilian on men. They offer packages that include full legs as well which gives you a discount on the brazilian.

Yonge-Eglinton Laser Center – We don’t think they offer brazilian for men, although they will do the bikini line for $199 per session. Their brazilian package is $189 per session but this is for women. If you are not looking for the full “ballz an all” package, they might just suffice. To access their prices, you need to click on the links on the page.

Divine Skin Therapy Wellness Spa – they offer the male brazilian at $159 per session or you can purchase a package of 5 sessions for $675 which is $135 per session.

Strawberry Fields Spa & Wellness – this is where it gets frustrating for people shopping. This site does list the fact that you can get full body laser hair removal for men (full body, means everything) for $1700 per session, however, in the individual price list, they don’t like male brazilian or even male bikini as an option. For women they list full bikini as $260 per session, so for men this price would likely be higher. Our assumption if they are willing to sell you a full body treatment you can call and get a price for just your “bits”.

For honorable mention is the Men’s PowerSpa. Although they don’t list the prices for male brazilian laser hair removal, they do list waxing prices. And we found their representation of their services (their graphics to be quite good at providing you with exactly what to expect – for this reason, they get the bode. Here is the picture for male brazilian waxing:

Groupon and Laser Hair Removal in Canada – Are These Really Good Deals?

You may or may not know, but Groupon (group buying site) launched in Canada early this year. Since that time we have tweeted @nobodyhair the various deals happening around the country for hair removal. So we wanted to put to the test, whether or not these laser hair removal deals are good. Here is what we found:

Vancouver

On Sept 11 – Skin2 Laser Aesthetics Centre was running a deal – $99 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Skin2 Laser Aesthetics Centre (Up to $330 Value). The fine print stated that you could only use on the following areas – underarms, brows, bikini area, chin, upper lip, sideburns, dorsal fin, hairline, neck, ears, foot, and nipples.

That would make it $33 for each treatment. If we compare the underarm treatment price, compared to 3 businesses that we reviewed in Vancouver, see Male Brazilian Laser Hair Removal, we find the prices for underarm laser hair removal at; $75 to $78.

This was a good deal.

Toronto

On Sept 12 – Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye + Cosmetic Centre ran a deal $99 for Four Laser Hair-Removal Sessions at Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye + Cosmetic Centre (Up to $596 Value). It was valid only for underarms, upper lip, chin, sideburns, bikini line, or neck.

Price per underarm in this case was $25. We have not done a specific comparison in Toronto for the prices of underarm hair removal, but we did compare Underarm Waxing Prices across Canada and at $25 for this deal, the average in Toronto for waxing was $14.60 – this was a good deal.

On June 6 – The Sarum Room Laser Clinic ran a deal $199 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments from The Sarum Room Laser Clinic (Up to $600 Value). This was valid only for Underarm, bikini, face, chin, sideburns, and full bikini.

This works out to $66 per underarm. Although much more costly that the Young Eglington Deal, this was approaching being a neutral deal. It saved you some money, but their regular rates ($200 for an underwear) – over priced. If you bought this, you did not go wrong, but you also did not save any significant money.

Ottawa

On Sept 26 – Dermis Advanced Skin Care ran a deal $149 for Six Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Dermis Advanced Skin Care (Up to $540 Value). This was valid for chin, upper lip, underarms, linea, sternum, cheeks, sideburns & jawline and you have to use 2 for bikini.

This worked out to $24 for underarm – good deal.

Edmonton

On Sept 12 – Silky Skin Laser and Esthetics Centre ran a deal $99 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Silky Skin Laser and Esthetics Centre (Up to $315 Value). This was valid for upper lip & chin, underarms, bikini line, full face, men’s neck front or back.

For underarms this was $33 per session. We did a comparison on Edmonton Full Leg Laser Hair Removal Prices and if we compare some of the sites we looked at for their prices on underarms we find prices of $85 to $100. This was a good deal.

Calgary

Currently running this weekend from Target Health is $75 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Target Health in Gold’s Gym ($147 Value). Valid for underarm, chin and upper lip, may combine for larger areas.

Price for underarm is $25. Their regular price is $49 so at $25 this is a pretty good.

For the most part, beside the early deal done in Toronto back in June, if you want to get some laser hair removal treatments done, you might want to follow Groupon, some of the deals are worth it.

Update on Getting a Male Brazilian in Calgary, #yyc

Back in January we did a post on getting a male Brazilian done in Calgary, Alberta. We recently received a comment on that post from Annette Burwash, the owner of The Gateway Spa for Men who informed us of 10-years experience on this subject, so we decided to check out the site.

In keeping to our mission of providing as much information as possible, they do a great job of outlining the cost of their laser hair removal + waxing services for me. Here is what we discovered.

They call it “below the belt” which we assume is the bikini region. The cost per session is $399 according to their site. From the post back in January, this seems to be on the higher side, however, as we always point out, you should do your research by calling all companies to ensure they offer exactly the service you want. Price alone on a website should not be the only determinant.

So if you are a male living in Calgary and planning to get rid of your pubic hair, check out the site above and make sure you read our first post, Getting a Male Brazilian via Laser Hair Removal in Calgary with Prices – where we feature 7 more companies in Calgary who provide this service.

User Feedback on the Tria Home Laser System

We recently received a great comment and feedback from one of our user regarding the usage of the Tria Home Laser System (link to the Tria site). The comment is located in our post, Silkn for Male Home Laser Hair Removal – The Male Brazilian – Part 3 in which we talked about results of using the Silkn on male private parts.

This was such an insightful comment that we felt it necessary to make a full post out of it. We would like to hear from other users who have used the Tria in the past and their results, especially if you are male as there is limited information on the web regarding home laser hair removal systems for male body parts.

Here was the comment from Rick, posted on July 18, 2010:

I bought the Tria laser hair removal, and though I’m just doing it for my chest and stomach and shoulders and a little bit on my butt, I warn people to be careful. The first go around, I think I put the setting to high and it really hurt like a mother (there are six settings). It was like someone with sensitive skin who shaves and then breaks out. It really hurt. But having said that, I’ve now done about 5 treatments and my chest and stomach are getting quite smooth. Now after I shave, my skin is as smooth as a baby’s. And each time the hair grows in after shaving, it is lighter and I need not shave as much. I’m guessing after two more laser treatments, it will be smooth enough not to have to shave at all.

My warnings are: Since you have to shave to use the Tria, make sure the shave is close but also in the direction of the growth…especially if you don’t shave much and/or you have sensitive skin like I do. To use the Tria, takes a long time and since it runs on a charge, you can’t cover too much area in a single use. The thing takes like three hours to charge after it stops working. It takes one charge to do a full pectoral area and will take about 30 minutes to do it. Also, you have to have somewhat light skin…so having a nice tan is not a good time to do the laser treatment. The Tria comes with a sensor tester to test the tone of your skin and if you get the green light, then you actually use the sensor to turn on the Tria laser…I guess it’s a safety precaution.

Also if you have hair on your shoulders and back, someone will have to do it for you. I have a little bit on the shoulders and it seems to be growing back less and less, though I’m not an ape…just a little bit of hair. I’m sure it would take a lot more time to do the laser treatments if you have super thick ape like body hair.

One plus is that the Tria has six settings. So if six hurts like a mother, then you can lower the setting in order to tolerate the little rubber band snapping feeling.

I like a little bit of pubes and a small happy trail, but I noticed around the pube line and my happy trail leading up to my button, the laser treatments are really working well…and no more razor bumps at all. Although if you have sensitive skin, I found rubbing a little bit of hydrocortizone cream helps prevent bumps.

Anyway, I’m writing all this because when I bought the Tria, there wasn’t much out there that talked about men’s use and results so I was just hoping it would work for me. Even though it is tedious to use, if you can stand the time it takes, I think it is well worth the cost and time. For me, I am very athletic and I just like having a smooth body. I was always shaving anyway, and now it’s nice not to have to shave so much and enjoy my smooth skin.

I’m not sure I’d use it on my private parts though…I think the laser might be too powerful for that, but I have used it on the area between my nuts and ass…and so far, great results. That was probably TMI. Anyway, good luck if u decide to take the plunge and be a little less hairy.

Electrolysis Prices Across Canada

Continuing our series of looking at prices across Canada for hair removal (we recently did a full body laser hair removal cost analysis, male Brazilian laser prices in Vancouver, laser hair removal prices in Edmonton, waxing comparison prices in Canada’s largest cities, and male Brazilian laser removal in Calgary) we felt like we were neglecting the only permanent form of hair removal which is Electrolysis (here is the link to Electrology on Wikipedia that explains the process in detail). So we decided to look around the Internet to see what the average cost for 1-hour of Electrolysis is across the country. This is only a sample and we are only listing sites that display their pricing.

On thing of note, none of the contributors to this blog have every done Electrolysis, therefore, if you have done Electrolysis in the past we would love to hear your experience, how many treatments, where you got it done and the cost of your treatments.

Here are our findings.

We found 17 clinics in Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal that listed their prices. The average price for 1-hour of electrolysis across these 17 clinics is $61.43 with Calgary coming it at the highest average ($71) and Winnipeg coming it at the lowest average price ($56.67). Note: Calgary is skewed higher because we had a sample size of 3 clinics and 1 clinic has a really high price (if we remove this clinic, Calgary is actually the lowest average at $56.50).
