Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction (aka “Removal”)

Laser Hair Removal at Neu Look Med Spa in San Diego

The Struggle is Real

At Neu Look Medical Spa in San Diego, California, we consider it summertime year-round. With almost perfect weather for shorts all year , your skin always needs to be ready! We offer all of the treatment essentials such as spray tanning, IPL Laser (for red and brown discolorations) and most importantly Laser Hair Reduction or “Removal”. Every female knows the struggle of always trying to achieve smooth skin with the results ending in stubble, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs . Men can also struggle with folliculitis (white or red pimple like dots surrounding the hair follicle) and ingrown hairs that can potentially cause scaring on their face, typically in their beard area.

Laser Hair Removal Vs. Waxing

Some people get waxed regularly, which is much less time consuming than shaving. Waxing is an effective method of hair removal for most people but it can be expensive in the long run. Many people experience skin irritation that can be itchy, unsightly and painful for days after their service. It is also common for ingrown hairs to form under the skin, especially if the client has thick or course hair.

If you are hoping to find a treatment that is a worthwhile investment, Laser Hair Reduction (Removal) is a wise choice. Our Nurse Practitioner, Gita Izadi, will use the Lumenis (Light Sheer Desire) Laser to quickly treat the hair that is in the anagen stage (growing phase). Multiple treatments will be required to achieve the best possible result as we are trying to eliminate all the hair growth cycles. On average, 5-7 treatments that are between 4-6 weeks apart are needed for optimal results. Laser Hair Reduction has been FDA approved to last a minimum of 2-4 years with patients needing occasional touchups. Some treatment areas, such as lip or underarms, can even be completed in less than 10 minutes.


To prepare for this treatment you need to shave the area that that will be lasered. It is important to not tan for 7 to 10 days before (or after) treatment, this includes Spray Tanning. Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs. The treated hair will continue to appear 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin. In some cases you may experience Folliculitis or slight inflammation of the hair follicles, if this occurs you can call Neu Look Medical Spa for advice on how you should treat that area.

Hair Reduction

Laser Hair Removal Special:


Laser Treatment for unwanted hair is a non-invasive approach to permanent reduction and long-term hair removal. Treatment is designed to eliminate hair from all parts of the body. Laser therapy leaves your skin feeling smoother and softer.*
Research indicates that between 20% to 30% of all hair follicles are in the growing to anagen stage at any time. As a result multiple treatments are required. An average of 5-7 treatments that are between 4-6 weeks apart are needed for optimal results.*

Laser Hair Reduction has been FDA approved to last a minimum of 2-4 years.* Small areas such as the underarms or upper lip can be treated in 10 minutes or less, and even large areas like the back or legs can be treated in under a half hour.

Various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis or waxing.
Commonly asked questions:
How can I prepare my skin for this treatment?
Shave the area that you are getting treated and do not tan for 7 to 10 days before or after treatment. (You will be charged a small fee if you do not shave)

What should I expect after this treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs. The treated hair will continue to appear 7-30 days post-treatment.* This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin. In some cases you may experience Folliculitis or slight inflammation of the hair follicles, if this should occur please call Neu Look at (858) 538-5665.

Are the treatments painful?
Most patients tolerate the procedure well, but some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. Topical anesthesia is always available for those patients with more sensitive skin.

Laser Skin Treatments at Neu Look San Diego

Nobody wants to look old. While wrinkles and fine lines that come with age are merely a manifestation of the wisdom and life experiences you have accumulated over time, that doesn’t make it any easier to look in the mirror and see a face you don’t recognize. The team at Neu Look Med Spa and Skin Center in San Diego completely understands, and that is why we offer a variety of laser skin treatments to reveal a new and more vibrant you!* Below are the various different types of laser skin treatments offered at Neu Look.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a great treatment to improve the appearance of the skin by peeling off the outermost layer of skin, revealing the fresh and appealing layer below. The new skin has fewer wrinkles, feels smoother, and has less acne, age spots and scars. A chemical peel can be done on the neck, hands or most popularly the face. Chemical peels are a low risk and noninvasive procedure that is perfect for anyone looking to improve their appearance.*

Fractional CO2 Laser

Fractional CO2 laser treatment is a skin resurfacing treatment that can be used to treat the skin on the face, arms, chest or neck. The treatment works to treat age spots, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles by removing layers of skin tissue. It is considered the best option if you want to only want to go in for one treatment and see the very best results, as one treatment with the fractional CO2 laser is equivalent to having multiple sessions with a lesser treatment. Since the fractional laser is such an effective treatment, it requires time to heal. Recovery will take anywhere from one to two weeks to make sure you heal properly and get the very best results.* However, the downtime is worth it for the amazing results you will get!

Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional resurfacing is a skin treatment that greatly improves the appearance of your skin with little to no recovery time needed.* The treatment targets the superficial layer of skin to help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as other skin issues like scars and pigmentation issues. This safe and noninvasive treatment is a great way to optimize your appearance with little hassle.

Hair Reduction

Neu Look doesn’t only offer laser skin treatments, we also provide laser hair removal treatment. Get rid of unwanted hair from your face or body with our laser therapy that will leave your skin smooth, soft and hair free. Our laser hair removal procedure will last at minimum 2-4 years, so you can throw away that razor and enjoy a life sans shaving.*


Photofacial Skin Treatment

The photofacial skin treatment at Neu Look consists of the RejuveLux Process laser using a pulsed light to improve the appearance of skin with sun damage, rosacea, signs of aging and issues with texture. The treatment also can reduce the appearance of large pores and dark circles around the eyes. The face, hands, arms, chest, and legs can all be treated in a safe and efficient procedure.*


Rejuvapen Micro-Needling

The Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System is a micro-needling tool that allows the skin to naturally heal itself. By making tiny perforations into the skin, micro-needling stimulates the skin to produce collagen and elastin to help the skin recover. In the process, you will see a reduction in visible pores, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.*


Strawberry Laser

The Strawberry Laser treatment specifically targets fat cells, causing them to drastically shrink in size. By literally melting away fat, you will see a noticeable difference in your appearance without the hassle and pain of liposuction or other surgical procedures.* Studies have shown the Strawberry Laser treatment has a 95% success rate and patients lose on average 3.67 inches per treatment.*


Tear Trough and Dark Circles

Over time, you can find dark circles around your eyes. This can be attributed to a variety of factors, but in many cases it is because of thinning skin and a loss of fat and collagen. When eye creams and bleaching agents can’t get the job done, opt for dermal fillers from Neu Look in San Diego.


Vein Therapy

Get rid of malformed veins and blood vessels with vein therapy from Neu Look. We use sclerotherapy to treat blood vessel malformations, which is when a medicine is pumped into the blood vessels, causing them to shrink. This painless and quick procedure can leave your legs looking youthful and vibrant.*
