What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal in Glendale 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

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

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 in Glendale, although you may require multiple treatments.

What to expect with laser hair removal

Our laser hair removal in Studio City and the surrounding LA area 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 in Glendale, 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.

What are the results after laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal delivers long-lasting and effective results for individuals seeking a reduction in unwanted hair. The procedure employs concentrated beams of light to target hair follicles, inhibiting their ability to grow. Over a series of sessions, laser hair removal can lead to a significant reduction in hair density and thickness. While results vary based on factors such as skin tone, hair color, and the targeted area, many individuals experience a substantial and often permanent reduction in hair growth. Additionally, the procedure is known for its precision, minimizing damage to surrounding skin. Although maintenance sessions may be required for optimal outcomes, the convenience and efficacy of laser hair removal make it a popular choice for those seeking a more permanent solution to unwanted hair.

What is the recovery after laser hair removal?

Recovery after laser hair removal is typically swift and uncomplicated. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure. Some may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated areas, but these side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few hours to a day. It's advisable to avoid sun exposure and apply sunscreen to protect the treated skin. Hydrating the skin with gentle moisturizers is also recommended. While the majority of people can return to their routines promptly, it's essential to follow any post-treatment care instructions provided by the practitioner. Overall, the minimal downtime and relatively quick recovery contribute to the popularity of laser hair removal as a convenient and effective hair reduction method.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal can be made permanent if, after your first treatment, you opt for a yearly touchup session. When a hair follicle is successfully destroyed, no more hair will grow out of it.

How long does it take for hair to fall out after laser hair removal?

Hair begins to fall out within 5 to 14 days after laser hair removal. A small percentage of patients may find hair loss continues through about day 30.

Can I shower after laser hair removal?

Yes. Avoid taking hot showers or baths for 48 hours after laser hair removal, but a cool shower is perfectly alright. For best results and recovery, keep your shower brief and cool and use no harsh products (loofahs, sponges, scrubs, etc.)
