Beverly Hills Laser Hair Removal

Jun 4, 2018
If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is worth the investment
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into the hair follicle. Pigment in the follicle absorbs the light which in turn destroys the hair. It typically takes multiple laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Common treatment locations include legs, underarms, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area — except the eyelid or surrounding area.
Vida Emanuel European Day Spa, located in the heart of Beverly Hills, just got a brand new laser hair removal machine. The Lumenis Lightsheer Desire is the number one laser hair removal machine on the market today.
This laser has amazing precision it can target the hair follicle and leave the surrounding skin undamaged.
Each pulse of this laser takes a fraction of a second and treats many hairs at a time. This laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
To promote comfort and decrease pain the laser has a chilled tip to keep the temperature of the skin down during the procedure.
How to prepare for appointment:
Arrive 10 minutes early to appointment to fill out paper work
To achieve the best results avoid plucking, waxing, tweezing, and threading for 6 weeks before your appointment. This is because the laser targets the hair root, which is temporarily removed when the hair is waxed.
Stay out of the sun. A tan increases the risk of side effects, such as skin lightening. If you have a tan either from sun exposure or sunless tanning products wait until the tan fades completely before undergoing laser hair removal. Some doctors recommend staying out of the sun for up to six weeks before laser hair removal.

Be sure to come to appointment completely shaved.
