Laser Hair Removal
Tired of shaving, waxing, or plucking? Getting rid of your hair with lasers might be the best choice for you.
The procedure of Laser Hair Removal uses a laser to target and destroy your unwanted hair- all in just 20 minutes!
Removing unwanted hair can be both an expensive and time-consuming process. Laser hair removal provides an alternative to shaving, tweezing, or waxing. The laser damages the follicles of the undesired hairs by destroying their pigmentation with highly concentrated light beams directed into each strand from outside the body.
Our team of experienced professionals at OC Cosmetic and Vein Center offers laser hair removal to treat most body areas with unwanted hair.
The most common treatment areas include:
What is laser hair removal?
The laser hair removal process removes body hair by destroying the follicle. Laser beams are shot at the skin where there’s unwanted growth, and they can either be absorbed for energy or reflected into space-helping reduce any risk of injury.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Don’t worry–sensitive skin creams can make laser hair removal more bearable if you have sensitive skin. If not, the procedure is about as painful as waxing!
How long does laser hair removal last?
Having a yearly touch-up session should maintain laser hair removal as permanent. If your treatments are successful, then even after years of not seeing any regrowth, it will still tend to grow more refined and lighter than before.
What skin type is the best candidate for laser hair removal?
The best laser hair removal candidates typically have pale skin and dark, coarse hairs. However, with new technology that is constantly changing the game for lasers worldwide, they can now also work on some of those lighter-type hues.
How much hair will I lose after my first laser treatment?
5-10% of hair is affected by the laser on any given treatment, and it’s safe to say that you’re in good hands.
How many laser treatments will I need?
A typical treatment session consists of between four and six sessions, with spacing in-between at about 6 weeks each. After the first or second session, you notice less hair in the areas that have been treated!
