At New Look Skin, we know how troublesome unwanted hair can be. This is why our team of professionals offers patients a solution with laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
Glendale, Encino, and Irvine CA area patients often hear about laser hair removal, but are unsure what it entails. With the use of a special device that emits adjustable laser light, our doctors can help target the hair follicles in the active growth phase and keep them from regrowing hair. With just one treatment, patients will notice a reduction in the thickness of the hair. But for full removal, several treatment sessions are needed, spaced over several weeks apart.
How long does laser hair removal last?
Because the hair follicles themselves are damaged, patients will no longer have hair growing in these areas. This means fast and permanent results! Patients can forget about shaving, waxing, plucking, and depilatory creams for unwanted hair, and instead find treatment that lasts a lifetime!
What can I expect from my laser hair removal sessions?
Treatment sessions are relatively fast, especially in smaller treatment areas such as the bikini line, the face, or the underarms. Larger areas, such as the back or legs, may take longer. The doctor starts by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment area for improved comfort. The laser device is worked along the skin in a pattern to ensure every square inch has been treated with the laser light. The light makes a snapping noise which may be paired with a snapping sensation—however, most of our patients find the discomfort to be well-tolerated. After the treatment is done, patients schedule their next treatment session before they leave the practice.
