A highly concentrated beam of light, or a laser, targets the dark and coarse hairs on your body or face. The hair follicle’s dark pigment absorbs the laser, which results in damage to the hair follicle and restricts future hair growth. More than one session is often needed in order to target each hair follicle in the treated area.
At Pure Beauty Medical Spa, we utilize the CoolGlide laser by Cutera. This versatile laser is effective for both men and women with all types and tones of skin. Regardless of which area you want to target, laser hair removal is likely to be an option. We help patients successfully eliminate hair in all areas, including the face, underarms, bikini area, chest, legs, and back.
Our laser hair removal in Mission Viejo relies on hair pigment in order to work effectively. If your hair follicle has no pigment, then it cannot absorb the laser and become damaged in a way that restricts hair growth. For this reason, individuals with very light or white hair may not be candidates for this method of hair removal. However, many of our patients have at least some pigment in their hair.
To find out for sure if you are a candidate for laser hair removal, simply schedule a visit to our office where you can meet with one of our medical professionals. During this appointment, we can examine the area that you are hoping to target and give you realistic expectations based on your hair.
