Remove Unwanted Hair with Laser Hair Removal
Many people today struggle with removing unwanted hair. It can be difficult to keep up with the time-consuming, ineffectual hair removal treatments that so many men and women attempt in hopes of maintaining a hairless body. But hair removal doesn’t need to be so challenging.
No matter which part of the body requires attention, laser hair removal can help. Common treatment locations include the face, underarms, legs, and bikini area (laser hair removal can provide an alternative to a Brazilian bikini wax). However, it is possible to treat unwanted hair in any desired area, save the eyelid or surrounding area. At Moradi MD in San Diego, we offer laser hair removal (including intense pulsed light treatment) to combat excess hair growth.
Patients who are interested in ridding their bodies of undesired hair are encouraged to contact Moradi MD to schedule a free consultation.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment inside the hair follicle without injuring the delicate skin surrounding it. Hair grows in cycles, and the science of hair removal is most effective when the targeted, pulsed light is used during the hair’s natural growth phase. Hair follicles can be destroyed with minimum discomfort and in a minimum amount of time using pulses of light and highly concentrated energy.
What Patients Can Expect
Before each procedure, patients must refrain from removing hair by the roots (tweezing and waxing), though the area to be treated should be shaved. This is typically performed by the individual patient in the privacy of his or her own home. During each laser session, a small hand-held wand is placed against the skin and a coolant is applied as the laser is activated. The hand piece is repositioned and the laser is then activated again. This process is repeated until the entire area has been treated. The size or the area treated will determine the number of laser activations required.
Ideal Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Anyone with unwanted hair can benefit from laser hair removal, though some patients are better suited for the treatment than others. Most patients achieve satisfactory results after several treatments, but individual results will vary depending on medical and genetic factors. Each laser hair removal treatment will result in a reduction of hair growth. Hair will also grow increasingly slower, light and finer with each treatment. It will likely take more than one treatment to affect all the follicles growing in an area.
The laser’s energy is attracted to the pigment of hair, the same way sunlight is attracted to darker colors. Laser hair removal is ideal for patients with coarse, dark hair and fair complexions, though laser hair removal will still yield great results on those without that specific combination. Lighter colored hair may call for more treatments than darker hair. At the end of an individual treatment plan, the desired outcome should be 80 to 100 percent elimination of hair in the treated areas.
