Laser Hair Removal in San Diego

There are many techniques used today to eliminate unwanted body hair, including tweezing, threading, and waxing. None, however, are as effective and long-lasting as laser hair removal. In a series of four to six sessions, Michelle Duncan, RN, under the supervision of Dr. Mofid, can remove hair permanently from the legs, back, face, underarms, and/or bikini area. In fact, almost any area can be treated.

A few days prior to laser hair removal, the patient shaves the treatment area(s). When the patient visits Michelle, he or she may be asked to wear special glasses to block out light from the laser that is harmful to the eyes. Based on each patient’s hair type, skin type, and other factors, the laser is adjusted to optimize the laser hair removal procedure. The hand-held laser is then focused directly on the hair follicles to stop or reduce hair growth. There is very little discomfort associated with this procedure, and most patients enjoy an 80 to 90 percent reduction in hair growth.

This vast advancement over old methods of hair removal saves time and improves the quality of many patients’ lives.
