Men and women alike are constantly seeking an effective, permanent form of hair removal. Traditional methods such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams can be effective, but none of them provide a permanent solution. Many of these methods can also be irritating to the skin.
However, laser hair removal offers Culver City clients an easier, permanent solution to remove unwanted hair from any area of the body. If you are tired of struggling to maintain hair removal, it’s laser hair removal to the rescue!
Laser hair removal provides a gentle, non-invasive and long-lasting solution for unwanted hair. The LightSheer™ Diode Laser System is FDA approved using targeted flashes of light to block hair follicle regrowth. It targets numerous hair follicles at the same time to make the process quicker and more effective. Approximately 100 – 200 hairs can be treated with each “zap”, making it easier to address larger areas such as the legs, back and chest.
The system uses patented ChillTip™ technology to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment while minimizing discomfort. The light does not cause damage to surrounding tissue.
The LightSheer™ Diode Laser System can successfully be used on a wide range of hair colors, from blonde to dark black. It can also be used on all skin tones- from fair to dark brown.
The treatment can be applied to any part of the body, including sensitive areas like the lips, ears, nose, underarms and bikini line. Although multiple treatment sessions are required, hair removal is ultimately permanent.
Hair removal treatments may cause mild discomfort creating a tingling sensation. However, it is far more comfortable than many other hair removal methods. Topical anesthesia can be used for sensitive areas.
The number of laser hair removal sessions required varies from patient to patient. There are many factors at play including specific skin type, as well as color, thickness and density of hair. Your consultation will let you know how many sessions will likely be needed for complete hair removal.
Because hair follicles are at different phases of growth, some will be treated more successfully. The follicles that are active see the best results. This is the reason it takes several sessions to complete the entire area.
Each session varies based on the size of the area being treated. A small area such as the upper lip will take just a few minutes while larger areas such as the chest, legs or back could take over an hour.
Most people can return to normal activity directly following a session. Some people might experience swelling or redness for a few hours, but much of the unwanted hairs will be gone.
You can schedule your sessions based on new growth which can appear between four to eight weeks between sessions.
