Shaving, waxing, and tweezing body hair can get tedious over time. That’s why laser hair removal is a popular method for eliminating unwanted hair almost permanently on different body parts. To learn how this treatment can benefit you, visit WWFM Center in West LA, Los Angeles. Nurse practitioner and aesthetician Alexandra Divinsky offers laser hair removal services to help you achieve smooth, radiant skin. To book a consultation, use the online scheduling system or call the office today.
Laser hair removal employs light-based technology to destroy hair follicles at the root. This enables you to achieve semi-permanent and sometimes permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal not only gets rid of unwanted hair, but it can prevent new hair from growing back. Common areas for laser hair removal are the legs, bikini line, underarms, and face. Most patients need about 6-8 treatment sessions for the best results.
Our team at WWFM Center uses the ICON™ laser system to help you remove unwanted hair. The ICON laser destroys hair cells without causing damage to the skin of the treated area. It works on a variety of skin types and can deliver lasting results.
The practice also offers the Elite+™ Aesthetic Workstation, a high-powered laser that transmits energy faster for more rapid results. The Elite+ system is considered the gold standard when it comes to hair removal, especially on darker skin tones.
Laser hair removal is generally a fast and painless process. Your practitioner may prep or numb the treatment area, and then runs the handheld laser gently over the skin. You may feel a minor pinching or tingling sensation. The process takes only a few minutes, and you’re free to resume your normal activities after a treatment session.
Your skin may appear slightly red or tender to the touch, which you can manage easily with a cold pack or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine.
The most significant benefit of laser hair removal is that it offers the most permanent solution for hair removal. Over time, the costs of shaving or waxing may far exceed the cost of laser hair removal. Results from laser hair removal last several months, and with maintenance treatments, you can have hair-free skin for life.
