The Smooth Skin You Want
Women and men visit Dr. Azar for laser hair removal from Santa Monica, Ventura, Calabasas and Westlake Village. These treatments provide safe, virtually pain-free removal of unwanted hair and achieve long-lasting results. Dr. Azar's laser of choice, the Cutera® CoolGlide®, is effective on all skin types, even tanned skin. It targets the active hair follicles, where hair begins its first stage of growth. During laser hair removal, the laser emits each pulse of energy for a fraction of a second. The hair follicle absorbs the energy, shrinks and becomes unable to grow new hair.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, a laser hair removal treatment may take from a few minutes to an hour to complete. Multiple treatments are usually necessary for the best results. Patients generally report no side-effects, although occasionally there is some minor skin irritation following the procedure. Any skin irritation usually subsides within a few hours.
