When you think of how you would like your skin to look, chances are you imagine smooth, supple, silkiness. Bumps, stubble, burns, and nicks do not necessarily have a place on the skin. They are, however, the norm for many people. If you have grown tired of the endless task of hair removal and want a safe, effective path toward your silkiest skin, consider laser hair removal services at Dr. J’s Elegant Reflections Med Spa in La Mesa.
Permanent hair reduction had, until recently, been something difficult to accomplish. The initial form of professional treatment developed for this purpose was electrolysis. While the advantage of electrolysis is smoother skin, the downside to treatment is the discomfort associated with the procedure itself. In recent years, we have seen a number of advancements in the area of laser therapies, including innovative devices designed for maximum effect. We are proud to offer laser hair removal with the proven GentleMax Pro® system.
The laser hair removal procedure
Despite the fact that laser hair removal treatment is technologically sophisticated, treatments performed by our experienced clinician are straightforward and predictable. Using the latest software, our device can be adjusted to suit your hair and skin type. Additionally, the GentleMax Pro® features a cooling mechanism that improves your overall experience. Due to the efficiency and advanced mechanisms of our laser device, most patients feel nothing more than a slight “snap” when laser energy is absorbed into follicles. In fact, many feel nothing at all.
Treatment sessions for laser hair removal last approximately thirty minutes, though this varies based on the size of the treatment area and other factors. Our staff discusses the estimated number of sessions we recommend during your consultation for this comfortable treatment. Typically, between six and twelve sessions are necessary to see you through the hair growth cycle.
Following laser hair removal sessions, treated skin may feel slightly sensitive. In the first few days after each treatment, we encourage patients to avoid sun exposure to the treatment area. After each visit with us, a noticeable decrease in the amount of hair can be seen.
The staff at Dr. J’s Elegant Reflections Med Spa is dedicated to delivering exceptional service to each one of our patients. We want you to feel great about your skin. Contact us at 619-589-0028 today to say goodbye to unwanted hair.
