About Laser Hair Removal
Shaving, waxing and plucking are time consuming, painful and never-ending processes that can lead to bumps, redness and irritation. You have to plan ahead for a day at the beach or when you want to stroll around San Diego wearing shorts; making sure your legs are smooth can be a hassle. Laser hair removal is an effective and effortless way to achieve smooth, hair-free skin for many years. As San Diego and Carlsbad’s premier Medical Spa, Avalon Laser sets the standard for rejuvenating and refreshing your skin, as well as for removing unwanted hair.
How It Works
Laser hair removal is a series of treatments for long-term hair reduction. A concentrated beam of laser light is aimed at the growing hair and the light is absorbed by the melanin or the pigment, causing inactivation of the hair follicle and preventing future growth.
There are three stages of the hair growth cycle, the anagen (the growing phase), catagen (the intermediate phase) and the telogen (the shedding phase). If the hair is growing and has visible pigment it is considered to be in the anagen phase. At any given moment only about 20% of the hair on the body is in the actively growing stage and this is the stage of growth targeted by laser hair removal. For this reason, with laser hair removal a minimum of six sessions is advised to achieve desired results.
Types of Lasers
As the procedure has grown in popularity, laser technology has improved. There are now several types of lasers that can safely and effectively remove hair from almost any skin tone. The professionals at Avalon Laser use a combination of bi-polar radio frequency energy and laser light to increase the procedure’s effectiveness. This combination also makes this laser hair removal system safer for more skin types as well as just about any area of the body.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Your hair grows in cycles. Lasers can only work on hair that is in its growth phase. For this reason, you need multiple sessions to make sure each hair in that region is treated while it’s in the proper phase. Larger body areas as well as course hair may require more sessions than smaller areas with thinner hair.
Unlike waxing and shaving, you won’t have to worry about ingrown hairs and infection. Laser hair removal is a less painful procedure with very few side effects. Your skin may be red and sensitive immediately following the process, but these effects should dissipate in a few days. When using a laser there is always a risk of burns, but a knowledgeable physician, like those in our San Diego office, and the right laser settings can prevent this from happening.
At Avalon Laser, we have your whole body covered. We offer Carlsbad and San Diego laser hair removal patients permanent hair removal of the abdomen, arm, back, bikini, chest, face, leg, neck and underarm areas. Call our San Diego office for a consultation, or sign up online using our complementary consultation form.
The ideal candidate for laser hair removal would be someone with light skin and dark hair since the pigmentation within the hair follicle preferentially absorbs laser energy and becomes inactivated. The contrast between the skin and the dark color of the hair follicle makes the process work faster and easier. Any candidate that has some hair color is a good candidate for laser hair removal.
Conversely, individuals with white hair may not get the best results from laser hair removal due to the lack of pigmentation.
Laser Hair Removal Cost in San Diego & Carlsbad
Many patients find that laser hair removal treatment’s lasting effects and reduced hair growth are more than worth the cost. Laser hair removal costs vary depending on the area being treated, the clinic or physician performing the treatment, the number of treatments in a package, and other considerations. Based on these factors prices for a single treatment can range from less than $100 up to several hundreds. Since all individuals have their own unique pattern of hair growth, it is difficult to give an exact estimate of the number of treatments needed to completely eliminate hair growth, or the exact cost of doing so. The safest approach is to set up a consultation with one of the staff members of Avalon Laser in order to better understand prices for your particular case.
