There are a variety of methods available to help remove unwanted hair, including shaving, waxing and tweezing. However, laser hair removal in Long Beach at Marcus Medical Spa is the only option that can help individuals of all skin and hair types achieve silky smooth and hairless skin.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal in Redondo Beach is a quick and long-lasting way to eliminate unwanted hair on the face and body. At Marcus Medical Spa, we are proud to use the gold standard laser for our treatments – the Palomar Vectus. This highly effective laser targets the pigment in the hair and transmits heat energy back to the hair follicle. In this way, the laser destroys the follicle without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues.

An extremely versatile procedure, laser hair removal can address unwanted hair virtually anywhere on the face and body, including the:

  • Bikini line
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Underarm
  • Face

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

In the weeks leading up to your laser hair removal procedure, you will be advised to adhere to certain guidelines. To begin, you’ll want to avoid tweezing and waxing your hair for at least six weeks prior to your procedure. For the treatment to be effective, the roots of the hair need to be intact so the laser can effectively target and destroy them. In addition, you’ll want to avoid excessive sun exposure six weeks before and after your treatment to ensure an optimal result.

What to Expect During yourProcedure

Laser hair removal in Redondo Beach at Marcus Medical Spa can be summed up in three words: quick, painless and effective. As laser hair removal is completely noninvasive, most clients don’t require an anesthetic during treatment. However, depending on your unique needs, we may begin the procedure by applying a numbing cream to ensure a pain-free experience. We will then adjust the laser so it’s at the appropriate setting for the color of your skin, as well as the color, location and thickness of your hair. From there, the laser will target and destroy each individual follicle in the treatment area, without damaging the surrounding tissues.

After your initial procedure, you will require follow-up treatments until your hair stops growing entirely. Typically, we are able to accomplish this after six cycles of hair growth and six laser treatments. At that point, your unwanted hair will be completely eliminated – and you’ll possess permanently silky smooth skin.

Are there any Side Effects?

As the Palomar Vectus laser was designed with client comfort in mind, side effects from laser hair removal at Marcus Medical Spa are extremely mild. At most, you may experience minor redness, swelling and a sunburn sensation in the treatment area, all of which will subside gradually within 24 hours.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

At Marcus Medical Spa, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer treatments if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our procedures on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. However, with the use of the extremely versatile Palomar Vectus laser, almost anyone can undergo this procedure, as the laser can be safely used on all skin types – including very light skin, very dark skin and everything in between. You’ll soon see why clients come to Marcus Medical Spa for some of the best results from laser hair removal Redondo Beach can rely on.
