What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a gentle treatment in which specific wavelengths of light are safely passed through your skin and absorbed by hair follicles, causing them to heat and be rendered incapable of producing hair. Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair from virtually any part of your body, including:

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Between the brows
  • Upper and lower back
  • Male and female private areas

The benefits of laser hair removal

Laser hair removal in Burbank has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, as it takes the time, pain, and discomfort out of maintaining smooth and hairless skin. Some of the benefits include:

  • Rapid and safe treatment
  • No more waxing, shaving, and tweezing
  • Cost-effective
  • Improved confidence

Am I a candidate?

While older versions of laser hair removal were only appropriate for people with light skin and dark hair, modern advances in technology make this popular treatment available to almost any skin type and hair color. Even if you have tanned skin and light hair, you can undergo laser hair removal, although you may require multiple treatments.

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.

Laser hair removal: Results

Because your hair grows in cycles, multiple treatments are required to completely remove the unwanted hair. Most patients require anywhere from three to eight treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Results will begin to appear within one to two weeks after the first treatment, and they will continue to improve with each subsequent visit until the hair is fully removed.
