Dr. Gerald Bock and the team at Stockton’s California Skin and Laser Center are proud to offer patients a wide range of cosmetic services to help them look and feel their best. This includes treatments such as laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal treatment is a more advanced method of permanently treating hair. It is common for both men and women to have unwanted hair on the body. This may be on the back, face, chest, legs, underarms, and bikini line. Patients often spend a lot of time each day grooming these areas. Instead of wasting time and money doing so, patients are often interested in finding out about permanent hair removal methods such as laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal treatment is safe and effective in permanently addressing unwanted hair. It uses special laser lights that target hair follicles and damages them, keeping them from producing hair again. The treatment targets hair in the active growth phase, which is why it is important for patients to understand that just one treatment will provide a reduction in hair, not full removal. Several sessions must be scheduled to ensure optimum results for patients who want hair-free skin. Patients who are interested in just reducing the amount of hair in the area may benefit from fewer treatments.
The lasers used for laser hair removal are approved by the FDA for effective, safe treatment. Patients are able to rest easy during their appointments. Topical anesthetics are applied to the treatment area for comfort, and the laser light is applied to the skin to target the active hair follicles. After the treatment, patients may notice hair falling out from the area of treatment and this is completely normal.
