Los Angeles Laser Aesthetic and Skincare offers hair removal using a pulsed light system. Getting rid of hair has been a dream for women and men for centuries. Lasers have been in use for years and have been FDA approved since 1997 for permanent hair reduction.
Hair removal is a long-term reduction of re-growing hair after an average of 8-12 sessions. The number of treatments required depends on various factors, such as hair color, coarseness of hair and hormonal problems. Pre Treatment Preparation: The treatment area needs to be shaved. You must avoid waxing, threading, plucking, or the use of chemical hair removal products four weeks before your treatment. Prior to treatment make sure area is clean leaving no residue of makeup, lotion, or topical anesthetic.
Be sure to stop any oral medications that are photosensitive such as antibiotics, accutane, etc. If the face area is being treated, make sure to discontinue all active topical creams such as Retin-A, hydroquinone, etc. If you are not sure about a certain medication or topical you are using, please give us a call prior to your treatment. Avoid direct sun exposure and always wear sunscreen. We want to be able to treat the area on the proper setting based on your skin type to achieve the best result.
