Facts about laser hair removal in Downey, CA

Patients of Dr. Douglas Blose in Downey, CA, seek out permanent hair removal for many reasons. For some it’s because they’re embarrassed about back hair when they take off their shirt at the beach or in the gym. Others have ingrown hairs caused by too much waxing. Still others want to slip on a swim suit or wear a sleeveless shirt without having to shave or wax their bikini line and under arms. Dr. Blose has helped all of these patients, and many more, get rid of unwanted hair and get back their body confidence. As one of the most common cosmetic treatments, laser hair removal can last anywhere from several months to many years.

Here, Dr. Blose offers some facts about laser hair removal to those patients who may be considering the treatment:
  • The hair is removed with a concentrated pulse of light directed at the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the light and effectively destroys the hair. This manner of hair removal works on a person’s face, arms, under arms, legs, bikini line, and other areas.
  • The laser is so precise that it can quickly target dark hair without causing damage to the skin around the hair.
  • The laser treatment is fast, although the length of each appointment and the number of appointments necessary will depend on the size of the area to be treated. Small areas can be treated in a matter of minutes while larger areas such as the back or thigh could take up to an hour.
  • Several appointments will likely be necessary. This is because the hair follicle can only be destroyed when it is in an active growing cycle. Because the hair follicle goes through several growth cycles, you will need several treatments to ensure that all of the hair follicles are treated.
  • There are several benefits to laser hair removal therapy, including less frequent shaving. Patients who undergo the necessary number of treatments to destroy the hair follicle can achieve an 80% reduction of hair. This will seriously decrease the amount of time a person spends shaving.
  • Other benefits include fewer ingrown hairs, softer skin, and increased self-confidence.
