More About Laser Hair Removal

Many women and men resort to shaving, waxing, plucking, and hair-removal creams to eliminate unwanted hair on:

  • arms
  • legs
  • bikini area
  • face
  • chest
  • back

These processes are painful, time-consuming, and messy, but luckily, the physicians at Dermatology Specialists can permanently reduce unwanted hair with laser hair removal! After treatment, you'll have silky smooth skin!


What Treatment is Like

The procedure consists of a series of 4 to 6 laser hair removal treatments that permanently reduce hair. Performed at all of our locations (Oceanside, San Marcos, Fallbrook, Solana Beach, Murrieta, Menifee and Temecula, CA), these treatments don't take much time and can be performed on patients of all different skin and hair colorations.

The laser releases pulses of energy that penetrates the skin and targets hair follicles in the active growth phase. The laser's energy is absorbed only by the hair follicle, which is destroyed by the heat of the laser.

The 4 to 6 treatments are spaced out over the course of 3 to 4 weeks for optimal hair reduction. The effectiveness of the procedure depends on the length of each session, ranging from 10 to 60 minutes, and the size of the area being treated.

One of the registered nurses or physician assistants performs these laser hair removal treatments while under the supervision of a dermatologist.

Whether it's the arms, face, armpits, bikini line, chest, shoulders, or legs, anyone's hair follicles can be extremely active. Laser hair removal at Dermatology Specialists in Oceanside creates the perfect look patients long for, and it's all done safely and conveniently right in the office.

Your medical and cosmetic dermatology professionals use the inventive and FDA-approved GentleLASE handheld laser to inactivate bothersome hair follicles. Delivering small bursts of highly concentrated light, the GentleLASE laser produces excellent results without painful or embarrassing side effects.

Treatments with the GentleLASE laser

Your dermatologist will determine if your skin type and hair color are right for laser hair removal. if you are a candidate, expect to undergo four to six treatments at three- to four-week intervals. Each procedure takes anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the treated areas and their dimensions.

After each treatment, you may notice some redness, puffiness and tenderness, but this resolves quickly. Also, you'll see your unwanted hair gradually disappear. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that laser hair removal is safe and effective for people of all ages but works best when the body hair is dark.

In addition, because the laser disturbs the growth cycle of selected hair follicles, multiple treatments are necessary for a completely hair-free look and feel. Results, however, last indefinitely--up to many years, in fact, reports the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

Treatments with the Diolaze Laser

The benefits of the Diolaze Laser for hair removal is that it can cover a large area during treatment, making it a fast and effective treatment. The laser works by heating up the root of the hairs, which works to prevent hair growth. It’s a virtually painless treatment due to its built-in cooling system. Our dermatologists can help you determine how many treatments are needed, with results visible after about 4-6 sessions.
