Laser Hair Removal ORANGE COUNTY, CA

The weather is cooling down and some people use that cooler weather as an excuse to stop taking care of themselves. Here comes party season, hot-tub season, and vacations designed to get us out into the world. If you’re tired of shaving your legs every morning, or just ready to say goodbye to the little peach fuzz on your toes, autumn is an ideal time to start laser hair removal treatments.

Are you interested but not sure what you should expect before your first treatment? Keep reading to learn about laser hair removal treatments.

We use the LightSheer DUET laser machine, which is designed solely to target hair for removal. This laser utilizes a larger spot size for treatment, which also helps deliver deeper and more effective hair removal results.

What can I expect during laser treatment?

The LightSheer DUET laser utilizes two different sized heads to allow us better control over the area being targeted for hair removal. Depending on the area being treated, appointments with other lasers could take up to an hour. Not with us! We can cover larger areas of the body (like legs or the back) in just fifteen minutes.

This effective laser is also gentle enough to deliver amazing results with minimal discomfort.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

Unfortunately, no laser treatment is able to completely rid you of hair in one treatment. This has nothing to do with the power of the laser. Actually, it has everything to do with your hair. Because different hairs grow in different cycles, you will need multiple treatments to fully rid yourself of hair in a specific area.

How do I prepare for treatment?

You may need to skip tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis for around six weeks before your laser hair removal treatments. Shaving the area in question is usually acceptable, but make sure to ask your provider before you come in for your appointment.

What do I do afterwards?

Taking care of your skin is key to having great results and staying healthy. Keeping skin that has been treated with lasers out of the sun will help it recover faster. Wearing sunscreen can also help protect delicate skin.
