Laser hair removal has come a long way since the first laser for hair removal received FDA clearance in the mid 1990s. Older generation lasers were slow, very painful and worked only on individuals with very dark hair and very light skin. Today, lasers can work on all skin tones, and some lasers are even safe for treating tanned skin.
Avalon Laser in San Diego provides expertise in laser hair removal and can perform the procedure on any area of the body. An average of six laser hair removal sessions are usually required and the treated hair follicles start to shed approximately two weeks after the first laser hair removal session. Avalon Laser recommends that clients exfoliate with a warm wash cloth over the treated area to remove shedding hairs and also prevent ingrown hairs. Treatments are generally based 6-8 weeks apart for most areas on the body and 4-6 weeks apart for laser hair removal on the face.
