What are the common benefits of laser hair removal treatments?
At Wang Plastic Surgery, we utilize the FDA approved Cutera CoolGlide™ XEO Laser to permanently remove unwanted hair for all skin types and skin tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Hair follicles are darker than skin, the intense light energy targets and heaths the dark tissue, destroying the hair follicles from the skin surface, while cooling the top layers of skin, preventing any discomfort and without damaging the lighter skin tissues.
Permanent hairremoval by laser can be performed to target facial hair, remove under arm hair, bikini lines, legs, and on other body parts.
How are laser hair removal treatments performed?
Each type of treatment may vary based on your targeted treatment area, skin tone and texture or hair thickness, and your hair's growth cycle of the treated area. Typically, the treatment area is shaved; a topical anesthesia is applied, followed by a cooling gel. The hand piece glides over your skin as the light pulse occurs, while the patient may sense a mild pinch or stinging sensation. Additional cooling gel may be applied as needed for your comfort.
How long do laser hairremoval treatments take?
Laser hairremoval treatments typically take between 15 and 45 minutes; and generally between 3 to 6 treatments are needed. We can easily accommodate scheduling laser treatment appointments for any busy schedule.
What can I expect after laser hair removal treatment?
Most of our patients experience a few hours of redness at the treatment site. The redness is typically gone within 24 hours and normal activities can be resumed the very next day. CoolGlide disables the hair’s active growth phase, at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, hence 3-6 treatments are required. Dr. Wang will discuss your specific precautionary needs during your consultation at our plastic surgery offices serving Southern California.
