Remove unwanted hair with laser hair removal!
Living in sunny Southern California means it’s possible to wear tops and bottoms that expose your youthful-looking skin practically year-round. However, if you have unwanted hair, it can affect both what you wear and how you feel.
You could solve this issue by shaving, tweezing, or waxing, but such options aren’t typically effective or long-lasting. Plus, they often cause irritating nicks, bumps, and burns on your skin.
That’s why you should consider laser hair removal. It’s a simple, safe, and effective solution for removing unwanted hair on nearly any part of the body.
At EllEve Med Spa in Woodland Hills, CA, we offer laser hair removal procedures as part of our wide array of laser and light treatments designed to address a variety of common skin issues.
It starts with the Cutera excel HR, an effective and safe FDA-approved dual-wavelength laser system that not only safely removes unwanted hair but also addresses other skin concerns like pigmented lesions and vascular lesions.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
A laser hair removal procedure helps deliver smooth, hairless skin in the places you want.
The procedure gently targets hair follicles with an intense pulsating beam of light that zeroes in on melanin, a dark pigment found in the hair. This heats the follicle until it is destroyed, yet the concentrated laser energy is so safe and effective that the surrounding skin is untouched and undamaged.
Many patients who are new to laser hair removal worry about pain, but advances in technology mean that laser hair removal is practically painless, although everyone’s pain tolerance is different. Most patients describe the sensation as that of the snap of a rubber band against the skin. To ensure that you as comfortable as possible, cooling techniques like cool air and ice as well as numbing cream can be administered.
In most cases, there is no downtime; you can resume your daily routine after the procedure. Side effects like mild inflammation, redness, tenderness, swelling, and stinging or tingling (like from a sunburn) may be experienced, but these typically are mild and usually subside within a week.
For the first 3-4 days post-treatment, you should avoid unnecessary sun exposure and apply ice, topical antibiotics, and/or anti-inflammatory lotions to reduce the risk of blistering and relieve any discomfort.
Within 2-4 weeks, your skin should be noticeably hair-free and silky smooth.
