At Westside Face in Los Angeles, we use laser treatments to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Our top-rated cosmetic surgeons specialize in laser hair removal treatments that will have you looking and feeling your best.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a noninvasive technique that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate and damage hair follicles, which temporarily halts hair production; Therefore, plucking hair before treatment reduces the efficacy of the laser treatment.
Because laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, it may take several laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction. While laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal, and periodic maintenance treatments may be needed.
What Happens During Laser Hair Removal?
A laser removes hair by vaporizing it, which causes small plumes of smoke that have a sulfur-like smell. Many people say that the laser pulses feel like warm pinpricks or a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
How long your treatment lasts depends on the size of the area being treated (for example, treating an area such as the upper lip takes minutes.)
Why Consider Laser Hair Removal?
Traditional ways to remove unwanted hair (shaving, waxing, and tweezing) are typically inconvenient, time-consuming, and at times, painful. They also require that you allow hair to grow before it can be removed and does little or nothing to discourage future hair regrowth.
Laser hair removal offers a convenient and effective way to reduce or permanently eliminate unwanted hair—while avoiding the various common side-effects of traditional methods, including irritated or bumpy skin, rashes, and possible infection.
Unlike other methods, individual hairs are entirely eliminated, with no possibility of ingrown hairs or stubble developing.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal provides a variety of positive benefits including:
- Easy, painless and fast-acting
- Permanently removes the hair
- Appropriate for all skin types and tones
- Rids the body of both regular and ingrown hairs
- Okay for sensitive skin
- Sessions typically span less than one hour
- Ideal for all areas of the face and body, except around the eyes
- Perfect for both men and women
- Affordable and cost-effective
- Does not damage surrounding skin or tissue
Because hair grows in cycles, it typically takes three to four laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction.
Costs of Laser Hair Removal
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for laser hair removal was $389 per session, but also varies widely, depending on the following factors:
- Size of the area being treated and time required for treatment
- Number of treatments required
- Whether a doctor or someone else is performing the procedure
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Although laser hair removal reduces the number of unwanted hairs in a given area, it doesn’t get rid of them completely. When the hair grows back, they will be finer, lighter, and fewer in number. Most people require between four and six sessions, and occasional maintenance may be required.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
Men and women of all hair types can benefit from the best laser hair removal in Los Angeles. Whether you have light hair and fair skin or have darker skin and thicker hair, our team of highly trained cosmetic surgery specialists can help determine which laser treatment is right for you.
The hair removal laser generates a specific wavelength which can only be absorbed by a specific type of pigment, which is why laser matching is so important. Incorrect laser matching could result in burns, hyper and hypopigmentation. That’s why it’s essential to choose a highly qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments do I Need?
Many patients wonder why there are 6-8 sessions recommended to complete the laser hair removal treatment. The reason for multiple laser hair removal sessions is that hair follicles develop in stages. As the follicle grows, it starts to move up to the skin’s surface and becomes vulnerable to the laser light.
In short, the laser can eliminate only the visible follicles. It typically takes 6-8 cycles for a successful treatment; In some cases, it only takes three to four laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction.
We can help you determine how many treatments are right for you, but you’l still notice visible hair reduction after your first treatment you will regardless.
