Remove Unwanted Hair From The Roots
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical treatment to reduce or remove unwanted body hair. Laser-concentrated light is directly absorbed by the melanin pigment located in small cavities the hair grows within, also called hair follicles. The laser light heats and damages the hair follicles. Laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for an extended period, but it is not permanent. So maintenance treatments are needed for optimal results. Laser hair removal can be used on every part of your body, targeting areas including shoulders, back, arms, legs, bikini area, and neck. It is also used on the face and upper lip but not recommended for the eyelids, eyebrows, and surrounding area, because of the possibility of eye injuries. Skin with tattoos should not be treated either.
Waxing can be very painful, especially for people with thick hair, so laser hair removal is the perfect choice to avoid the inconvenience of waxing. Ingrown hair is a common issue for many people who shave, wax, or use other hair removal methods. Laser hair removal is the perfect solution to unwanted body hair. Laser hair removal is a precise treatment targeting hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. It is a quicker treatment than you expect, leaving you with smoother, softer skin and long-lasting results.
The Convenience of Being Hair Free
The FDA says that laser hair removal may reduce the amount of hair on your body by about 70 percent. Even though you might not be able to get rid of all of your hair, the hair that does grow back is often much finer and less noticeable. Different parts of the body also need additional procedures. For example, you should wait between laser hair removal treatments on your face for four to six weeks and on other parts of your body for six to eight weeks. This is because new hair grows at different times depending on its cycle. Start a series of treatments in late fall or early winter if you want your skin to be smoother by the following summer. Laser hair removal works best on people with light skin and dark hair because the contrast makes it easier for the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicle during treatment. If you have light hair and a light skin tone or dark hair and a dark skin tone, you should talk to our medical staff to see if laser hair removal is suitable for you.
Eliminate Body Hair
During your laser hair removal session, you will wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light. Then, your hair removal specialist will clean the treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic to ensure you don't experience discomfort during your session. The amount of time needed for your session depends on the size of the area you want to treat, but typically a laser hair removal treatment takes about one hour for areas such as the back, chest, and legs. However, the upper lip doesn't take more than a few minutes. Next, the laser equipment is tuned to your skin tone and hair density.
Experience Long-lasting Smoother
After completing your treatment, you may be given cold packs to reduce swelling. The treated area of your skin may feel sunburned over the next day or two, and you may need to continue applying cold compresses or a light moisturizer to calm your skin. On the day of your laser hair removal treatment, you should be able to apply makeup without discomfort unless your skin gets inflamed. Laser hair removal will permanently reduce hair growth, but in some cases, it will not be totally eliminated. Further sessions may be required for optimal outcomes. If necessary, your specialist will discuss additional laser hair removal if needed.

You may feel a slight sunburn-like sting from the heat of the Laser, but the anesthetic can minimize any discomfort efficiently.
Common side effects include swelling, redness, and skin irritation. Those side effects usually subside in a couple of days. However, like any cosmetic treatment, there might be less common side effects, like scars, burns, and infections. Some Los Angeles laser hair removal patients may experience pigment changes as the treated area darkens or lightens. This risk is connected to exposure to the sun right after the laser treatment.
Most people require six to eight laser hair removal sessions spaced out every four to eight weeks in addition to an annual maintenance session before they start to see benefits. Because every patient is unique, your RN will decide how many sessions are necessary to achieve the best outcomes.
