If you’re tired of waxing and shaving, laser hair removal is an effective solution to permanently reduce unwanted facial and body hair. At NorCal Medical & Aesthetic Center we offer laser hair removal for all skin types using Cynosure’s Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system which delivers a fast and practically pain-free treatment.
During the treatment, light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without causing any harm to surrounding tissues or skin. Commonly treated areas include the face, underarms, chest, arms, legs, back, and bikini. Each laser hair removal treatment can take anywhere between a few minutes for smaller areas to roughly 30 minutes for larger areas. A series of treatments are needed to achieve the best results possible.
While light-based hair removal can be a great solution for almost everyone with any skin color, it’s most successful on patients with medium to dark hair color.
While there is no-downtime following treatment and patients can resume their normal activities, some patients may experience some mild redness and swelling. Patients are advised to avoid direct sun exposure for about one week after their treatment.
