Laser hair removal is a permanent hair removal treatment. The treatment targets the root of the hair underneath the skin to destroy the hair follicle. This treatment can target hair on the face, arms, chest, legs, back, and bikini line. Bakersfield MedSpa uses state-of-the-art laser technology to achieve the best results possible. We are proud to provide the leading laser hair removal treatment in Bakersfield.
Treatments may take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete depending on the area of concern. During the treatment, the laser delivers energy to target the hair follicle. The hair follicle becomes damaged which prevents future hair growth. The number of treatment sessions will vary depending on the hair type and area of concern. Laser hair removal is an ongoing process and may take several sessions to remove hair for good. After the treatment is complete, patients may experience slight swelling and redness. Symptoms will subside within a few days of the treatment. Following the procedure, patients will see new hairs grow and fall out. Once the new hair has fallen out, the hair growth in the treated area will be minimal.
