Virtually everyone, at one point in their lives has suffered from unwanted hair. Whether you have hair on your legs, face, back, bikini line, or anywhere on your body, chances are you’ve tweezed, plucked, and shaved, waxed or even tried electrolysis. Laser hair removal has made all of those older methods obsolete by offering a much faster, less painful and more permanent solution to unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal requires 5-9 treatments to be effective. There are no short cuts to this process. Each treatment removes a progressive percentage of the hair until ultimately the skin becomes smooth and hair free.

Laser hair removal with the industry-leading Cynosure® Icon™ platform can leave you with dramatically smoother skin that can last a lifetime. If you’re done with waxing, shaving, and plucking, contact Rumi Lakha, DO, and the aesthetic team at Alena Skin Care in Huntington Park, and Paramount, California. They provide personalized laser hair removal packages based on your treatment area, your skin tone, and your hair type. Find out more by booking a consultation over the phone at (562) 602-8877 (Paramount) or (323) 835-0882 (Huntington Park) today.

Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

If you find that you spend too much time waxing, shaving, and plucking unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is the best thing you can do for yourself. Laser hair removal with the Icon laser destroys hair follicles on the spot, without damaging surrounding skin.

Each pulse of laser energy is absorbed as heat, which shatters those hair follicles and encourages them to shed away — this could take a couple of weeks.

With each laser hair removal treatment you have, hair grows back finer and lighter. Over time, you should find that hair growth is seriously reduced.

Can I have laser hair removal anywhere on my body?

Pretty much! The cutting-edge technology behind the Icon laser is safe to use nearly anywhere on your body (just not near your eyes). Dr. Lakha and the team at Alena Skin Care can create a custom laser hair removal treatment package to include one or more of the following areas:

  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Back or chest
  • Full or half legs or arms

Laser hair removal from Alena Skin Care is safe and effective for both men and women.

How many laser hair removal visits do I need?

When you come into Alena Skin Care for your laser hair removal consultation, Dr. Lakha and the aesthetic team evaluate your skin and hair to determine how many sessions you may need.

In most cases, about five to nine monthly treatments are necessary. But laser hair removal sessions are fast, so you can quickly get in and out during your lunch hour and return right back to work.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Any hair reduction you experience with Icon laser hair removal is permanent. Sometimes hormonal fluctuations, especially with pregnancy and menopause, can lead to new hair growth. If you find that patches of hair start growing in the future, you’re welcome to come back to Alena Skin Care for a touch-up treatment.
