Laser hair removal is a safe, FDA-approved alternative to waxing and shaving. Laser technology has been proven to safely remove unwanted hair with no adverse affects to the skin or body. Laser hair removal takes place in a clean office setting, like the one at Laser Away in La Jolla, Ca. Trained technicians administer one of four lasers to the unwanted hair. Compared to waxing, laser hair removal is virtually painless and compared to shaving, it is much less hassle.
Additional benefits are that the results of laser hair removal last longer than other hair removal methods and are sometimes permanent. The procedure is much less painful than waxing and you do not need to have the procedure done nearly as often as shaving. For anyone with embarrassing, unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is the answer.
During the hair removal process, the laser provides an invisible beam of light and constant heat that penetrates the hair follicle and destroys the hair at the root. The hair may not come back at all or it may take a few treatments to achieve a permanent effect.
Laser hair removal is conveniently available at the La Jolla Laser Away location and ten other locations around California. Busy men and women can have treatments spread over several visits as time permits.
Laser hair removal is described as uncomfortable, like a slight burning sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Most patients tolerate it without any topical anesthetic, though numbing cream can be applied to the skin prior to treatment. A cooling device is utilized throughout the procedure to keep the client comfortable. These cooling systems also prevent the laser beam from harming the skin surrounding the hair. The hair removal process can take a few minutes or a few hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. Legs take longer than an upper lip, for example. One of Laser Away’s trained laser hair removal technicians can advise you of how many treatments may be needed per body area.
As stated before, laser hair removal has no adverse affects. A few precautions should be taken to ensure a positive outcome. For several weeks following laser hair removal, direct sun exposure should be avoided. The treated area should not be plucked, shaved, rubbed, or scrubbed for a few weeks. The skin can be washed gently with soap and water.
