Waxing and shaving can be an expensive, painful, and time-consuming process for both men and women who suffer from unwanted hair. Excess hair can be a constant source of self-consciousness. Thankfully with our Burbank laser hair removal program, we can get rid of the problem entirely with easy, fast, and cost-effective treatment. By destroying the hair follicles beneath the skin, we halt hair growth to leave you with smooth, hair-free skin.
What to expect
Laser hair removal can be performed with or without a topical numbing cream, depending on your preference and sensitivity. Most patients report the sensation of the laser to be similar to a pinch on the skin or a mild rubber band snap, while others say it feels cool on their skin, and not unpleasant. Everyone is different.
The length of the procedure depends on the size of the area being treated. For example:
- Back can be treated in 15-30 minutes
- Underarms can be completed in one to two minutes
- Upper lip can be treated in a matter of seconds
There is no downtime involved with laser hair removal, though your skin may appear slightly red and sting for a few hours after treatment.
To prepare for your laser hair removal treatment, be sure to shave the area the day of your appointment (or one day before). It's also important to avoid tanning during your laser hair removal treatments.
