Laser hair removal at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center is an aesthetic treatment that permanently removes unwanted hair from your body, so you no longer have to shave, pluck, or wax away the hair again. Dr. Farag uses the advanced Icon laser to give you dramatic results in a short period of time. She can remove unwanted hair from your:
The advanced laser system is gentle enough for all skin types.
The Icon laser permanently removes hair in just a few short sessions. The energy created by the laser passes through your skin to your hair follicle. The intense heat created by the laser damages your hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth, but doesn’t cause any harm to your surrounding skin.
Dr. Farag provides specific instructions on how to prepare for your laser hair removal. She recommends you avoid direct sun exposure and stop using any bronzers or spray tan for a minimum of 10 days prior to your session.
She also recommends you not pluck or wax your hair for at least a month. These two methods of hair removal may also remove your hair follicle, which may make your laser treatment less effective.
Dr. Farag performs your laser hair removal at the office. Treatments are quick and usually take no longer than 30 minutes.
Although you may notice a significant reduction in hair after your first session, a series of treatments is recommended due to the variation in your hair growth cycle. Dr. Farag creates your treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect.
You may experience a sunburn-like sensation and mild swelling after your laser hair removal session, but these side effects are temporary and no worse than what you would expect from your usual hair removal routine.
Laser hair removal means you no longer have to shave, pluck, or wax again. Call Orange County Laser and Wellness Center today to schedule a consultation.
