Laser hair removal eliminates the need for constant waxing, tweezing, and shaving. The procedure involves the application of concentrated light into hair follicles, which are then destroyed without damaging your skin. Laser hair removal is a great option for anywhere that has unwanted hair, such as your face, legs, arms, bikini area, and underarms.
Avoid removing the hair yourself before the procedure. Laser hair removal is most effective on dark, coarse hairs. You may need more than one treatment until your hair stops growing completely.
Can I benefit from laser hair removal?
To find out if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal, schedule a time to talk with one of our Orange County surgeons. In general, laser hair removal is a good option if you would like to permanently get rid of any unwanted hair.
What can I expect after the procedure?
After your laser hair removal sessions, your skin will likely feel as though it is sunburned. Talk with your Orange County surgeon about whether any ice packs, creams, or lotions will help you minimize any discomfort. Not long after your procedure, the treated hair will fall out. Make sure you wear sunscreen to protect the area.
