One of the most annoying aspects of life is having unwanted hair in places that will be visible to anyone you may meet. It can be hair growth on your face, arms, underarms, legs, and anywhere else on your body. Shaving, waxing, electrolysis, and other hair removal methods have major drawbacks, including harming your actual skin.
It may be time to consider laser hair removal when you want hair follicles removed quickly and painlessly with minimal drawbacks. At DSC Laser & Skin Care Center, we offer laser hair removal services utilizing the most advanced laser technology for removing unwanted hair throughout your entire body.
Our team at DSC Laser & Skin Care Center in Los Angeles, CA, is here to answer any questions and address all concerns that those thinking about undergoing laser hair removal may have. We will walk you through the process, and let you know exactly what to expect during the treatment and how to prepare the treatment area as well as yourself for the laser hair removal. Our team will also let you know how many treatments you will need and the benefits of choosing laser hair removal versus other hair removal options.
What Are Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
The basic idea behind laser hair removal is that it uses laser light to heat up and destroy the melanin in the hair follicles. Hair follicles develop hairs growing out from the skin unless something like a laser treatment stops their ability to do so.
After multiple laser treatments with the DiolazeXL hair removal laser, the hair follicle ceases to be able to regrow hair. It is important to note that complete hair removal is not possible even with this highly concentrated light because we will grow new follicles throughout our lives. Hence, the intention is permanent hair reduction over time.
With laser hair removal, you will drastically reduce unwanted hair growth through a virtually painless process. A small area such as your underarm, on the upper lip, or along the bikini line could be done in less than a minute with our procedure. You will also notice fewer ingrown hairs, smoother surrounding skin, and even skin tones.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of the best laser hair removal treatment depends on where we will be removing hair for you. The larger the area, the higher the cost will be. Contact DSC Laser & Skin Care Center to get a price quote for your target body areas.
How to Prepare for Removal of Unwanted Hair Follicles
Prior to your hair follicle treatment, our skincare team will advise you on the best ways to prepare for your upcoming appointment. Some of the common tips we give to our clients before their permanent hair removal treatments include:
- Only use a gentle cleanser or lotion on the treated area rather than anything which may cause photosensitivity for at least three days
- Avoid sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum mineral sunblock of at least 30 SPF
- Do not use tanning beds for two weeks before treatment
- If you are taking any oral prescription medications, let us know ahead of time.
- Avoid Botox injections, dermal filler injections, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion for two weeks
- Bathe prior to your appointment and avoid fragrances, oils, and creams
- Shave the treated hair area 24 hours before treatment but do not wax, tweeze, or epilate the area
If you follow these pre-treatment tips, you should be in the best possible condition to get the body hair removal treatment.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal Treatment
During your appointment, we will start with a health assessment to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment. Following that, we will discuss your goals for the treatment and any particular areas that you want to focus on. Our technicians will then clean and prepare the area so that we have the best possible skin condition for the laser light.
Once we begin the process, we will walk you through each step of the way. Since you will have approximately three to seven sessions, you will get to know the process pretty well over time, but we will ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment. You will be wearing protective eyewear to ensure that you are completely safe during the process.
Following the procedure, you may experience some redness or swelling of the treated skin, but this will reduce over the next few days. For a few hours after the treatment, it may feel like a razor burn or sunburn in the area. We encourage you to use hydrocortisone or aloe vera to reduce the redness and irritation.
Much of your post-care will be similar to the pre-treatment care in that you should avoid excessive heat, sun exposure, topical ointments, and other skincare treatments. We will ensure that you are well aware of all post-procedure information before leaving our clinic.
