Clients can achieve significant permanent hair reduction with laser hair removal. Here at our facility, we utilize the Cutera CoolGlide system for hair removal. Our CUTERA CoolGlide laser is a Nd: YAG laser that is safe for use on ALL skin types, including darker skin tones! Laser hair removal with our system works best on dark, coarse hair. Laser hair removal is not effective on velous hair (peach fuzz). If you are unsure about whether or not our laser will work on the hair you hope to remove; we recommend scheduling a free consultation. We will be more than happy to help! 951.588.1652.
Almost all areas of the body may be treated with laser hair removal, including: including face, legs, underarms, arms, and back. Laser hair removal can also be done on more sensitive areas such as chest, nipples, and bikini/Brazilian area.
The short answer is No. Laser hair removal is over-promised as being “permanent” and implies that “you will never have to shave, wax, tweeze, etc.” ever again – it’s just not possible. Single hairs may be permanently removed if the follicle is destroyed. That single follicle will not re-grow. You can expect about 70%-80% of the hairs to be removed. The remaining hairs should be more fine, thin, and lighter in color. Results always vary and hormonal fluctuations can significantly affect response to laser hair treatments. (Conditions such as PCOS for example).
Over time your body will develop new hair follicles so that new hair growth will occur. This is why we recommended that after finishing the initial six treatments; you do maintenance/touch-up treatments every 4-6 months so that new hairs are targeted. LHR does not work on blonde, light brown, red, gray, thin/fine “peach fuzz” hair, and/or white hairs; DARKER and COARSER hair with lighter skin yields the best results.
*Please schedule a free consult to determine if you would be a good candidate for laser hair removal. (Especially, if you are considering treatment of FACIAL HAIR).
Some pinching and stinging may occur during the procedure; however, the level of discomfort may be so mild that no pain medication is necessary. Numbing cream is offered for an additional fee to decrease the level of discomfort when treating sensitive areas such as the Brazilian area.
The number of sessions needed varies, but on average it can take 6-12 sessions (sometimes more). Factors such as hair density, color, thickness, and growth speed can affect the number of sessions needed. It is not uncommon for individuals to need extra treatments to achieve optimal results. Treatments are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.
