Do you want to know which laser treatments are Nova Scotia’s favorite? Read on!

In Nova Scotia, we love our signature Maritime favourites: folk music, Sidney Crosby, and of course lobster. We also love to take care of ourselves and pay extra attention to our skin. As a laser and skincare clinic, we want to let our fellow Nova Scotians know which laser treatments are this amazing province’s favourites!

Whether you’re looking to improve acne scars, brown spots, remove unwanted hair, or even tighten your skin, there are a ton of laser treatments to choose from at Enlighten Laser, so we have narrowed it down to two awesome laser treatments that are Nova Scotia’s favourites.

So…what laser treatments do we love here in Nova Scotia…

Laser Hair Removal

Although Nova Scotia can get quite cold most of the year, we are sure to take advantage of the warm weather in July and August due to this province’s amazing beaches, so it comes as no surprise that laser hair removal would be one of our favourite treatments.

It is often recommended that clients undergo laser hair removal during the colder months as you are not exposed to sunlight as much, so for anyone that lives in a cooler climate makes sure that they get the best laser hair removal results before the sun comes out and they are spending tons of time on the beach.

At Enlighten, we use the power of elōs Plus from Syneron Candela, which combines bipolar radiofrequency with a diode laser. 

This technology allows for deeper penetration into the dermis, therefore better guaranteeing effective, incredible results. The unique radiofrequency feature of the treatment allows the diode laser to heat up the targeted hair follicles more effectively, minimizing risks of possible complications and allowing for a full range of hair colours to be effectively treated.

With the elos Plus, you can ensure that treatments are fast, hygienic and do not require numbing creams. Limited sun exposure prior to consultations is required to provide proper skin colour analysis. Upon your consultation with Enlighten Laser, you will often get an estimated answer or time span to how long it will take to fully remove the unwanted hair.


As we mentioned before, although Nova Scotia can get quite cold throughout the better part of the year, residents often spend a ton of time outside and on the beach during the summer months. Unfortunately, though, overexposure to sunlight can cause some skin imperfections such as brown spots, mottled pigmentation, and wrinkles. 

This is why Photorejuvenation is so popular in Nova Scotia. Many of our clients come in following the summer months looking to improve the look of their skin or treat sun-related skin abnormalities. 

Photorejuvenation or IPL Photo Facial is a procedure where intense pulse light (IPL) is used to improve a variety of skin imperfections and benign conditions, such as:

  • Skin damage caused by excessive exposure to sunlight such as age spots (sun-induced freckles), brown pigment, mottled pigmentation
  • Age-related skin imperfections, rosacea, wrinkles, signs of aging, broken capillaries, dark spots, blotchy skin colour, redness of the face and neck, enlarged pore size and uneven pigmentation
  • Unwanted skin conditions like birthmarks, stretch marks, acne, acne scars (pigments), any other scars, tattoos, etc.

Photorejuvenation is a safe and non-invasive laser treatment that can be tailored to your unique skin type and the specific skin condition to provide superior cosmetic results.
