Have you found yourself spending too much time shaving, waxing, sugaring, and covering up at the pool? Women spend well over a full month of their lives removing unwanted hair—that’s 24/7, around-the-clock hair removal work that you don’t need to do. Men spend just about one month of their lives doing the same. Let Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care help you dramatically reduce your time with hair removal with laser hair reduction.
Those with fair skin tones are best matched to the 755nm Alexandrite Laser, while those with more melanin are a great fit for the YAG Laser. For years, only those with fair skin and dark hair were considered “good candidates” for laser hair reduction, but that has changed with the latest technology. We offer the most powerful, effective, and yet safe lasers available so that you can achieve your hair reduction goals no matter what your skin tone.
Why Not Hair Removal?
Contrary to what some clinics might advertise, no laser can actually “remove” hair permanently.* Lasers can reduce hair, sometimes quite dramatically, but only electrolysis can remove hair for good. However, electrolysis is a very painful, expensive, and time-consuming process. You will definitely spend many hours of your life on electrolysis to achieve the results you want. Electrolysis requires hours of appointments as each individual hair in every follicle is zapped with electricity, and nobody has the time for that.
Laser hair reduction works—and it works quickly. Depending on the density of your hair and the treatment site, most clients are happy after 4 – 6 treatments. You do need to allow time for hair to go through its natural cycles, which is why appointments are often spaced a few weeks apart. However, you will also see some incredible results after just one session.
Laser Hair Reduction for the Ultimate Summer Body
From shorts and tee-shirts to swimsuits and trunks, this is the time of year when you’re showing more skin, and you want it to look and feel its best. Whether you want to treat yourself before summer vacation or are tired of spending too much time shaving before heading poolside, laser hair reduction gives you the greatest gift of all: time. Appointments are fast and easily fit into your schedule. Many clients make lunch hour appointments for laser hair reduction. Since there’s no downtime, you can head right back to your daily routine (though your skin may be a little pink and tender for a day or two).
If you’re looking for hair reduction in Palo Alto, you have a lot of choices—but not every laser is going to perform as you’d like. There are many lasers on the market, and we are committed to always offering the best possible technology to meet all of your skin care needs, including hair reduction. You can use lasers just about anywhere on the face and body, including the legs, arms, underarms, bikini, back, chest, neck, and face. Most people describe the treatment as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin, but the laser does not need much time at each site to work. Appointments typically last no longer than half an hour.
Getting Ready for Laser Hair Reduction
Laser hair reduction is so simple that it requires little preparation or after-care. You may be asked to stop shaving and waxing for a short amount of time prior to the treatment. A soothing gel or lotion after each treatment can help increase comfort. Otherwise, no changes need to be made when you get laser hair reduction treatments. Both men and women are getting laser hair reduction treatments in Palo Alto and loving the results. Say goodbye to hours of shaving, expensive waxing appointments, and if you’re one of the few people getting electrolysis, it’s time to discover just how much quicker, more affordable, and effective laser hair reduction can be.
