Laser Hair Removal
In Beverly Hills and serving the Los Angeles area
For many, unwanted hair can be annoying and embarrassing. Plus, getting rid of it can be extremely painful and take up a lot of time. There are many ways to remove unwanted hair including shaving, plucking, waxing, electronic tweezing, creams and electrolysis. But most of these options are not very comfortable and only provide temporary results. Lasers offer the best method for long lasting hair reduction and removal.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Azizzadeh, can use laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair on many areas of the body including the upper lip, sideburns, chin, ears, chest, back, armpits, bikini line, legs, fingers, feet or toes. Dr. Azizzadeh can use the laser to remove hair from a large area of skin at one time, making laser hair removal an efficient and effective method.
Hair removal lasers send a low-energy beam through the skin and is absorbed by the dark pigment (melanin) present in the shaft of the hair follicles. By targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, the laser kills the unwanted hair and disables it from further growth. Since hair goes through various growth cycles, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy the hairs. However, the percentage of hairs removed per session varies in different body locations, with areas of thin skin, such as the bikini line and armpits, generally showing a better response than areas of thick skin, such as the back and chin. This also means that you will see results quicker from treatments on the bikini line than you will from treatments on the face. Approximately 10-25% reduction in hair growth can be expected with each treatment. Three to seven treatments will be repeated every 4-8 weeks to achieve the best results. More treatments can be done as soon as further hair growth appears.
There are many benefits of laser hair removal, including:
- Excellent aesthetic outcomes
- Long-term, lasting results
- Effective for treating a wide variety of skin types
- Comfortable for treating faces and necks
- Large spot size decreases procedure time
- Advanced contact cooling technology minimizes pain and discomfort
Dr. Azizzadeh is the author of several different books profiling different facial plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation techniques in Beverly Hills.
