Hair removal

Lasers are the preferred method for removing unwanted dark hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Long used by women, they are gaining popularity with men who want to eliminate hair on their backs and chest. Lasers selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Our Cynosure Apogee Elite Laser is a high-powered, dual-wavelength system that delivers energy faster for faster results. Its dual-wavelength settings make it ideal for all skin types. The Elite’s wavelengths are the gold standard for hair removal, facial and leg veins, epidermal pigmented lesions, and wrinkle reduction on all skin types.

During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

The popularity of laser hair removal is due to its incredible rate of success: ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of five to eight sessions. Apex Dermatology offers package pricing on laser hair removal treatments. Call us for a quote at (818) 889-2739.

If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

What to Expect

The day before the procedure, you will shave the area to be treated. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.

Depending on the laser or light source used, you and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.
Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area to assess and adjust settings.

After some treatments, there may be creams, lotions or cold cloths applied. You may schedule your next treatment four to eight weeks later. You will continue treatments until you reach adequate reduction in hair growth, which often takes five to eight treatments.
