Unwanted hair

For many women, unwanted hair can be a nightmare. Getting rid of unwanted hair is not always easy and can be somewhat unpleasant. In the past, the only options available were hair removal creams that had a strong odor, razors that could be sharp and dangerous, hot wax that could be very painful, or needles used in electrolysis which were also very painful. However, modern technology has introduced more comfortable and effective solutions like Laser Hair Removal, providing a lasting solution to unwanted hair growth.

How It Works

Hair removal lasers and light systems, such as Laser Hair Removal, are advanced methods for removing unwanted hair from various parts of the body.

At our practice in Los Angeles Laser Hair Removal treatments work by targeting the pigment in hair follicles, which prevents them from growing further. Unlike traditional hair removal methods like shaving or waxing, laser hair removal treatments provide long-lasting results, leaving your skin feeling smooth and silky.

The best part about these treatments is that they can be used on larger areas of the body, such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs, face, and neck. They are also safe, fast, gentle, and effective alternatives for hair removal. So, if you're tired of the hassle of routine shaving and waxing, laser hair removal systems might be the perfect solution for you.

Benefits Laser Hair Removal

With Laser Hair Removal Los Angeles residents, both women and men, find a gentle and less irritating hair removal method that prioritizes skin health. It's also great for larger areas of the body because it's faster than other methods like waxing or tweezing, but still provides long-lasting results like electrolysis. You can use it on almost any part of your body to achieve smooth, hair-free skin.


Laser Hair Removal can be a great option for individuals who want to get rid of unwanted hair in the long run. People with light skin and dark hair are usually the best candidates for the procedure as the laser targets melanin within the hair follicles. However, technological advancements have made it possible for people with a wider range of skin tones to undergo this procedure as well. Although the procedure is generally safe, there are certain conditions such as pregnancy, active skin infections, or a history of keloid scarring that require caution. To determine individual eligibility and address any potential contraindications, it is essential to consult with a qualified practitioner. Age is usually not a disqualifying factor, but practitioners may exercise caution with younger individuals, particularly adolescents. While allergic reactions to this treatment are rare, people with specific allergies or sensitivities should discuss them with the practitioner beforehand. In summary, a consultation with a trained professional is vital to determine whether this is the right choice based on individual health and skin characteristics.

Laser Hair Removal is often referred to as a long-term reduction rather than a permanent removal of hair. The procedure works by targeting and damaging hair follicles, inhibiting future hair growth. While many individuals experience a significant reduction in hair growth that can last for an extended period, it's essential to understand that some hair regrowth may occur over time. Factors such as hormonal changes, genetics, and the number of sessions undergone can influence the long-term effectiveness. Maintenance sessions may be required to address any regrowth and maintain the desired results. Despite not guaranteeing absolute permanence, this treatment remains a highly effective and popular option for those seeking a substantial and long-lasting reduction in unwanted hair.


Compared to Laser Hair Removal, electrolysis is a slower method for removing hair in Los Angeles. During electrolysis, a tiny needle is inserted into each hair follicle individually and an electric shock is applied to stop the hair from growing. This process takes longer because each hair follicle is treated separately. Our advanced Laser Hair Removal systems use cool light to scan the treatment area; and within minutes, all of the hairs in the laser beam are treated. Most patients who have had both say that treatment with lasers and light systems is less painful, faster, and more convenient.


At Marina Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles Laser Hair Removal is a gentle process. We start by cleansing the area that will be treated. The area is then scanned using the laser or light handpiece. The targeted light energy then passes into the skin and becomes absorbed into the pigments of the hair follicles. The treatment acts to vaporize the carbon particles within the hair follicles, limiting hair growth. These treatments tend to last anywhere from several minutes to several hours, based on the extent of the area to be treated. A majority of patients will see optimal results in as little as 2 to 3 treatment sessions, though some patients may require more. Your hair's location, thickness, and strength are influenced by various factors such as age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication, and metabolism. If you're considering laser treatment for hair removal, the number of treatments required for long-term benefits depends on the area you want to treat, the density of your hair, and its growth cycle. Laser treatment targets hair follicles during their growth cycle, but not all hair follicles are in the growth cycle at the same time. This means that multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve permanent hair removal. Most patients prefer to continue periodic treatments until the hair is completely gone.


Determining the cost of Laser Hair Removal will vary depending on factors such as the treatment area, the number of treatment sessions needed, and individual characteristics like skin type and hair color. It is best to schedule a consultation with a qualified practitioner to receive a personalized assessment and accurate cost estimate. During the consultation, the practitioner can evaluate your specific needs and goals, providing you with a tailored treatment plan and a clear understanding of the associated costs. This individualized approach ensures that you receive the most accurate information, allowing you to make an informed decision based on your unique circumstances.


Once you are done with your treatment for Laser Hair Removal in Los Angeles, the treated area is cleaned up, and you can go back to your usual activities right away. To ensure that your skin remains healthy and beautiful, we might suggest using a skin care product line specially designed for your skin type or a personalized skincare routine after your treatment. This will help you maintain the results of your treatment and keep your skin looking its best. The use of sunscreen is recommended for 48 hours on any treated areas exposed to the sun. Many of our patients complement their treatment with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser skin rejuvenation, vein therapies, and chemical peels.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL Frequently Asked Questions

Laser Hair Removal is generally well-tolerated, and many individuals report only mild discomfort during the procedure. The sensation is often likened to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. Technological advancements, such as built-in cooling systems in modern laser devices, aim to enhance comfort during the treatment.

When done with an experienced and qualified practitioner, laser hair removal is considered safe. The lasers used are designed to target hair follicles selectively without causing damage to the surrounding skin. It is vital to follow all care instructions provided by the practitioner to minimize any risks.

The number of sessions required varies depending on factors such as the treatment area, hair color, and individual response to the treatment. Typically, a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. During a consultation, the practitioner can assess your specific needs and provide a personalized treatment plan.

Advancements in laser technology have made the procedure effective for a broader range of skin types. While individuals with light skin and dark hair traditionally respond well, modern lasers can be adjusted to accommodate various skin tones. A laser hair removal consultation with a qualified practitioner will help determine the most suitable approach for your specific skin type.

Laser Hair Removal is generally less effective on tanned skin due to the increased melanin levels. It is advisable to avoid sun exposure and tanning before the treatment to enhance the procedure's efficacy and reduce the risk of adverse effects. Consulting with a practitioner can provide personalized guidance based on your skin condition.
