Laser Hair Removal Aliso Viejo

When to consider Laser Hair Removal?

Plucking. Shaving. Waxing. In the name of beauty, you’ve regularly endured these time-consuming “weapons of hair destruction” to remove unwanted growth from your eyebrows, underarms and legs, not to mention the occasional stray whisker. But if you’re becoming increasingly bothered by dark bristles that are growing in more regularly than randomly, it’s time to consider permanently eliminating your stray strands with Laser Hair Removal treatments at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery.

Just like adolescence prompted some of your body’s fine (vellus) hair to grow coarser and darker (terminal), mid-life hormonal changes can stimulate hair on your face and in other undesirable places to become thicker and more noticeably tinged. Unlike your tried and true depilatories that provide temporary results, we recommend Laser Hair Removal to our patients who desire a permanent solution for eliminating unwanted body and facial hair.

Laser Hair Removal is extremely effective and convenient, taking as few as 15 minutes per appointment to treat smaller areas. First, a numbing cream will be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Then we’ll use a hand-held laser that directs highly concentrated light beams to your renegade follicles. The individual hairs are destroyed when the darker hued follicles absorb the laser’s light. (Because the laser works by targeting contrasting skin tones and blonde, red, grey and white hair follicles have minimal pigmentation, people with light skin and dark hair are the best candidates for Laser Hair Removal.)

There’s no downtime following this procedure, but you may experience some slight swelling or redness in the treatment areas for a few hours after your appointment. Laser Hair Removal must be performed during the proper time in your hair’s growth cycle, so multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Though not all hair can be permanently destroyed, any stubborn strands that return will appear finer and lighter than before, and you can expect up to 95 percent of your unwanted hair to be eliminated after we’ve completed your individualize treatment plan.

If you’re longing for a permanent solution to eradicate cosmetically undesirable hair from your face, neck, shoulders or chest, contact Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery to learn if you’re a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal.
