Getting rid of unwanted body hair can take hours of your time every month. Razors can cause bumps, waxing can leave reddened areas, and chemicals can cause burns or allergic reactions. Plus, you constantly have to shell out for products. Wouldn’t it be great if you could enjoy hair-free skin for good?

At DERMABARE medical spa in Laguna Niguel, California, Ramin Tayani, MD, and his expert team deliver incredible results with a laser hair removal system called the Lumenis® Splendor X, which can make creams, waxes, and razors obsolete.

How laser hair removal works

The Splendor X laser uses Blend X technology to target your hair follicles, which are the small sacs in your pores from which individual hairs grow. The pigment in each hair absorbs the laser’s energy, and the energy damages the hair follicles. This leaves the follicles disabled, and they recover slowly. With repeated treatments, your follicles will become unable to grow new hairs.

For the best results, you’ll need around six treatments spaced a few weeks apart, because there are multiple stages of hair growth. Laser hair removal targets the follicles with hair in the growth phase. In the weeks following your first treatment, you’ll see very short hairs emerging and falling out. These are the treated follicles shedding your remaining hair.

Eventually, all of your follicles will get treated at the right phase of hair growth, and you can increase intervals between treatments. Most people eventually find that their hair doesn’t regrow at all. That’s when laser hair removal really pays off. Imagine not having to spend hours and hours grooming your body.

The laser hair removal process

If you have light skin, but recently tanned, let us know. Our laser is safe for all skin types and shades. However, It’s important to avoid the sun and suntan lotion for a period of time before and after your hair removal appointments. Also, refrain from plucking or waxing for four weeks before your appointments. You can shave a day or two before your appointments. There needs to be just a little hair growth so the light energy can travel down the pigmented hair into the follicles.

During treatment, most patients experience a sensation much like the gentle snapping of a rubber band. Treatments usually take around 30-60 minutes, depending on the area or areas being treated.
