Excess facial or body hair can be troublesome for both men and women. Although common, removal methods such as shaving and waxing are temporary, time consuming, painful and often yield poor results. It’s no wonder more and more people are opting for long lasting, convenient hair reduction via laser hair removal.
With the use of advanced laser technology, most areas of unwanted hair can be treated successfully, conveniently and with fewer complications than other methods. Professional laser treatment is a non-invasive approach to permanent reduction of hair, which can easily treat large areas of hair growth in a short period of time.
At Torrey Pines Dermatology, our highly trained practitioners perform all laser hair removal treatments personally. Laser hair removal works by penetrating the skin with controlled pulses of light that are absorbed by the hair follicles. Without damaging the skin and with minimal patient discomfort, the laser energy destroys the hair follicles and significantly impedes their ability to re-grow. Following treatment, patients enjoy smooth, soft skin and long lasting reduction in unwanted hair.
Since hair grows in cycles, the total number of required treatment sessions varies by patient skin type, hair color and hair coarseness and for that reason we recommend a series of 6 treatments. Common areas treated with laser hair removal include legs, arms, back, shoulders, underarms, upper lip and bikini area. Darker-colored hair is typically more responsive to laser treatment than light colored hair.
