What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal in Redondo Beach and Long Beach is a quick way to remove unwanted hair on the face and body, with lasting results. At Marcus Medical, we are proud to use the gold standard laser for our treatments – the Palomar Vectus. This highly effective laser targets the pigment in the hair and transmits heat energy into the hair follicle, rendering it unable to produce hair. The laser energy works to affect the follicle without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal in Redondo Beach at Marcus Medical can be summed up in three words: quick, painless and effective. As laser hair removal is completely noninvasive, you will not need any anesthetic during treatment, other than a topical numbing cream for a pain-free experience.

We will then adjust the laser to the appropriate setting for your skin color, as well as the color, location and thickness of the unwanted hair growth. The laser device is then applied to target each hair follicle in the treatment area, without affecting the surrounding skin and tissues.

A Series of Treatments Delivers Hair-free Skin

Laser hair removal requires a series of treatments. Typically, we can accomplish the full result with four to six laser treatments. Hair moves through different phases of growth, and this approach makes it possible to target every unwanted hair. You may require touch-ups yearly or bi-yearly, but after your series of treatments, your skin should be hair-free and smooth – no more waxing, plucking, or shaving!

Are There Any Side Effects from Laser Hair Removal?

As the Palomar Vectus laser was designed with client comfort in mind, side effects from laser hair removal are extremely mild. At most, you may experience minor redness, swelling and a sensation like a mild sunburn in the treatment area, all of which will subside gradually over 24 hours.
