The cost of remaining hair-free can be extreme — both in the money and the time you spend. Wouldn’t it be nice to stop shopping the depilatory aisle and do away with hours of waxing, shaving, and tweezing?

With laser hair removal, you can get amazing results with a simple visit every once in a while to your favorite medical spa.

At DERMABARE Med Spa in Laguna Niguel, California, our team of registered nurses provides laser hair removal under the supervision of Dr. Ramin Tayani. You’ll be able to enjoy silky-smooth, hair-free skin in no time.

Laser hair removal basics

At DERMABARE, we provide laser hair removal using the state-of-the-art Lumenis® Splendor X, which uses two types of laser in a BLEND X technology that is safe and effective for all skin types.

This safe, effective cosmetic procedure uses dual flashing beams of light to penetrate the pigment in your body hair. Each hair will heat up down to the hair root. This energy causes a tiny amount of damage to the hair follicle, making it hard for the follicle to grow new hair.

The hairs that are treated fall out, and it can take a very long time for new ones to grow in. The more treatments you have, the more effective the treatment is. After a while, you might not even need laser treatments anymore, or you could require them just a few times a year to maintain a silky-smooth effect.

Your laser hair removal treatment

Prepare for laser hair removal the same as you would for an outpatient medical procedure., Double-check your medications with your doctor and pharmacist before scheduling hair removal treatment.

Over-the-counter or prescription medications and supplements that might thin your blood can cause a reaction. Find out if you can stop these for several days prior to and after your treatment. If not, you may need to discuss whether laser hair removal is safe for you.

Don’t wax or use depilatory creams for a month before your laser hair removal appointment. Do shave your legs the day before treatment, so there will be no hair on the surface to heat up. This allows the hair root and follicle to be targeted more effectively, and will result in the least amount of discomfort.

The treatment itself takes 30-60 minutes, depending on what area(s) you’re having treated. You can get hair removal on your legs, bikini area, underarms or forearms, chest, back, or upper lip.

Most patients say they feel a slight snap, like being snapped with a rubber band, when the laser pulses. Afterward, make sure you use a good sunscreen as your skin will be more sensitive.
