Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Reduction Los Angeles

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for removal of unwanted hair. We use the LightSheer Duet System in our Beverly Hills dermatology practice. LightSheer Duet uses a diode laser which emits a beam of light that passes through the skin and targets unwanted hair follicles. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The LightSheer Duet offers faster treatment times when compared to other systems.

What areas can be treated with laser hair reduction?

Many areas can be treated such as the face, underarms, chest, back, bikini area, and legs. The degree of discomfort varies with each person, depending on his/her pain threshold. For this reason, a topical anesthetic cream may be applied. The procedure may last as little as ten minutes or up to an hour or longer depending on the area(s) treated.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments will I need?

Approximately 8 treatments are required, occasionally more treatments may be needed depending on the area being treated, the color of your skin, and the color of your hair. Hormonal areas (such as the face, neck and back) take longer to treat.

Treatments are scheduled once every 4-6 weeks. Compliance to the recommended treatment spacing is important and will improve the effectiveness of the treatment.

Tips for Laser Hair Removal

  • Hair Color: The laser is only for use on dark hair. Unfortunately the laser light will not affect blonde, gray, or red hair.
  • Shaving: Shaving - the area must be shaved 1-3 days prior to the treatment.
  • Do not use any other form of epilation: (waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, epilady, or depilatory creams) for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. Shaving is okay throughout treatment.
