Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair in the face and body for our Burlingame, CA clients. By exposing it to pulses of laser light, this procedure destroys the hairs at the follicles to provide long-lasting results.
Our laser hair removal technology uses vacuum-assist technology to bring the targeted hair follicle closer to the treatment head. Through gentle suction, the treatment area is slightly stretched, allowing the laser energy to interact more efficiently with the desired target — melanin, or pigment, in the hair follicle.
The vacuum pulls the hair follicles closer to the surface of the laser, allowing for deeper penetration and a reduced need for laser energy. The laser energy is transferred directly to the follicle, damaging its ability to regrow.
For the most effective treatment, there are a few guidelines we need our Burlingame-area laser hair removal clients to follow, including avoiding the sun and tweezing. For more information on what to do before and after laser hair removal, read our blog.
The LightSheer® DUET™ device is a “flinch-free” system that is FDA approved for permanent reduction of unwanted hair. These laser systems are effective for both women and men and safe for people of different skin types and tones too. As always, we recommend a consultation with one of our practitioners to determine if our laser is right for your needs.
While laser hair removal can be performed on most parts of the body, the most popular treatment areas for our clients in Burlingame and the surrounding Bay Area include:
Laser hair removal treatment times are up to 75% faster than other hair removal processes, and the results are longer lasting. Treatment is virtually painless and doesn’t require topical anesthetic cream, cooling gel or cooling devices. Additionally, there’s no required downtime after your treatment, so you can get back to your daily activities as soon as you’d like!
Because hair grows at different cycles, about thirty percent of follicles come to the surface at a time – so you will need between five and six sessions in total to see the most significant results. Laser hair removal treatments are recommended between four to six weeks apart, depending on the individual, and touch-ups may be needed to maintain results ongoing.
