How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal in La Jolla offers a convenient way to achieve smooth, hair-free skin. This modern technique utilizes advanced technology and is suitable for both men and women. A concentrated beam of light is directed at the hair follicles and is absorbed by the pigment in the follicle. This causes the hair to heat up and ultimately damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. Laser hair removal typically lasts for months or even years, but it's not uncommon for some hair to grow back over time—touch-up treatments every six to twelve months might be necessary.

Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal has become a go-to choice, offering a plethora of benefits compared to other methods like waxing, shaving, and using chemicals.

  • Laser hair removal offers long-term results. Unlike waxing or shaving, which require constant maintenance, laser hair removal targets the hair follicles, effectively reducing the capacity for regrowth. Over a series of treatments, most individuals will see a significant reduction in hair growth.
  • Less pain and discomfort. While waxing can be quite painful and using chemical depilatory creams can cause irritation, laser hair removal is gentler. Clients say the focused light feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin, which is uncomfortable but much more tolerable.
  • Laser hair removal is precise and versatile. The laser can target dark, coarse hairs without affecting the surrounding skin. This precision allows for the effective removal of unwanted hair from various areas of the body, including sensitive zones like the bikini line.
  • The treatment is time-efficient. Laser hair removal sessions can be as short as 20 minutes, depending on the target area. This quick process offers significant value, as it saves individuals the time and effort of alternative hair removal methods that require frequent maintenance.

Where Can Laser Hair Removal Be Applied?


Laser hair removal is commonly used to target the upper lip, chin, and sideburn areas. It is an excellent choice for those with fine, dark hair and light skin since lasers target the pigment in the hair.


This smaller area allows for quick and efficient laser application. This area typically requires fewer sessions than other body parts.

Bikini Area

The bikini area, including traditional and Brazilian styles, is another common site for laser hair removal. The treatment helps avoid ingrown hairs and irritation often associated with other hair removal methods and is suitable for both men and women.


Laser hair removal is a popular option due to the time-consuming nature of regularly shaving or waxing the legs. The treatment works well on various hair thicknesses and achieves impressive long-term results.
