As of 2021, we have recently discontinued offering Laser Hair Removal to patients. Please review our other services to see how Dr. Torres can help.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that’s non-invasive and non-surgical, using laser energy and highly concentrated beams of light to damage hair follicles. In your hair shaft, the pigment absorbs the light and generates heat. This heat damages the follicle and stops hair growth.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?
While some people experience great results with just a few treatments, most people typically need approximately six treatments to experience noticeable and lasting results.
How do I prepare for a laser hair removal appointment?
Before you see Dr. Torres in La Jolla for your appointment, it’s important you avoid plucking or waxing because the laser focuses its energy on the hair follicle in the shaft. You should also avoid chemical peels, direct sun exposure, and tanning beds for at least two weeks. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for many different areas of the body.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Some patients may experience mild discomfort. However, many patients don’t experience any discomfort at all.
Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Dr. Torres uses the most advanced laser hair removal technologies in the world – the lasers work on different hair colors and skin types, so most people are suitable for the treatment.
What can I expect after laser hair removal?
After your treatment, you should be able to return to your daily activities, although you might experience some mild swelling and redness in the treated area(s). Also, you should avoid exposure to direct sunlight for approximately a week.
