Laser Hair Removal in San Diego

Laser hair removal offers a way to make managing your unwanted hair simple and hassle-free. 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. Mark Mofid, can remove hair permanently from the legs, back, face, underarms, and/or bikini area. In fact, almost any area can be treated.

Preparing for Your Laser Hair Removal

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.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Results

There may be some redness and swelling around the treated areas and the skin may be mildly irritated and sensitive to the touch. These issues will subside quickly. Ice can be supplied to soothe the area. It is best to avoid direct sunlight while your skin is recovering.

There is very little discomfort associated with this procedure, and most patients enjoy an 80 to 90 percent reduction in hair growth. In most cases, multiple laser hair treatments are required in order to achieve the desired results. Most patients will need around four or six laser hair removal treatments scheduled around two weeks apart.
