Unwanted facial and body hair can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. Shaving, waxing, and depilatories work temporarily, but can cause ingrown hair, painful bumps, rashes, and redness. On top of that, the unwanted hair quickly grows back! People who want a longer-lasting solution can find the remedy in laser hair removal. Los Angeles is a warm and sunny area where women and men alike tend to show plenty of skin—even in the colder months. Laser treatments for hair removal can be used on the body and face, providing months or more of smooth, bare skin.
Laser hair removal treatments employ a device that uses light energy to target darker pigmented cells found in hair-producing follicles. This light generates heat, damaging the follicle and hindering its ability to produce hair. The light energy impacts active follicles that are growing hair at the time of the treatment. Since not every follicle is active at the same time, several laser hair removal sessions are necessary to remove hair long term.
