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.

Preparation

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.

Gita Izadi, an experienced Nurse Practitioner, provides her patients with a “less is more” approach to ensure that the results of a treatment are natural.

How to Heal Bruises From Injectables Quicker

At Neu Look Medical Spa in San Diego, CA, we understand the importance of privacy and the possibility that many of our patients do not share their cosmetic procedures with their peers. We pride ourselves on being knowledgeable about how much downtime is usually required per treatment to allow our patients to plan accordingly with the exception of one side effect: bruising. This is the only side effect that cannot be predicted prior to a treatment and the length and depth of the bruise cannot be pre- determined. There are so many blood vessels that cannot be seen by the naked eye in the body, especially in the face and neck area. Unfortunately, many people fear getting treated because of…
