About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular elective services done in America. It's an effective way for the long-lasting removal of hair on the face and body. This laser treatment usually leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and provides great, lasting results compared to other common hair removal options. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ben Childers of Sheer Beauty Medical Spa, offers effective and safe laser hair removal services for both women and men in commonly desired areas like the legs, arms, back, face, chest, and bikini area. Dr. Childers offers the procedure at all three Sheer Beauty locations in Redlands, Riverside, and Upland, CA.
Laser Hair Removal Reviews
Laser hair removal is a safe treatment that is helpful for many people. At your initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal patients for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in good, overall physical health
On the day of your procedure, you will lie in a private treatment room as areas of the face and body are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and creams. During the procedure, a team member will smooth out the area that is being treated to create a clear pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will focus on and destroy the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to get your optimal results. Your sessions are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to change to the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The revolutionary laser technology we use at Sheer Beauty Medical Spa targets only the hair follicle, which preserves the skin and other tissue in the treated areas.
What to Expect
Although this procedure is mostly gentle, your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn when lasers are used. After your treatment, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following a treatment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to minimize any mild discomfort.
