Zap Away Unwanted Hair For Good

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic treatment that uses advanced laser technology to target and remove unwanted hair in different areas of the body. During the treatment, a laser emits a concentrated beam of light that penetrates the hair follicles, destroying the hair at its root. As a result, hair growth is significantly reduced, and the skin becomes smoother and hair-free. Laser hair removal is a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution for unwanted hair.

South Coast MedSpa stands as a beacon of excellence, renowned for our commitment to exceptional expertise and unparalleled quality of service. Our team of medical providers is meticulously trained through rigorous clinical classroom sessions and in-depth clinical case studies, ensuring they possess the knowledge and expertise to deliver the utmost care.

The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses a high-powered laser that emits a concentrated beam of light at a specific wavelength. This light is absorbed by the pigment, or melanin, in the hair follicle, which converts the light into heat energy. The heat damages the hair follicle, causing it to stop producing new hair. As a result, hair growth is significantly reduced, and the skin becomes smoother and hair-free.

We Use The Groundbreaking Elite IQ Laser

At South Coast MedSpa, we use the Elite IQ laser, a state-of-the-art technology designed to deliver safe and effective laser hair removal for all skin types, including tanned and darker skin. The Cynosure Elite IQ laser uses innovative Skintel melanin reader technology to customize settings, thus making treatments faster, more effective, and less painful.

The Elite IQ laser system features two types of wavelengths, the 755 nm Alexandrite and the 1064 nm Nd:YAG, which allow us to customize the treatment according to your skin type and hair color. This groundbreaking technology also includes a patented cooling system, which keeps the skin cool during the procedure, ensuring a virtually painless experience.

Your Complete Laser Hair Removal Experience

To prepare for your laser hair removal, avoid tanning or prolonged sun exposure for at least four weeks before your appointment. It’s also important to avoid waxing, plucking, or electrolysis at least six weeks before the treatment, as these methods can interfere with the hair follicle’s root, making it difficult for the laser to target. Shave the treatment area the day before or the day of your appointment to achieve optimal results.

During your laser hair removal session, you will be provided with protective eyewear. Our experienced technician will use the Cynosure Elite IQ laser to target the hair follicles in the treatment area. You may feel a slight warming sensation, but the cooling system will keep the skin comfortable. The treatment time varies depending on the size and location of the area being treated.

Side Effects
After laser hair removal, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort in the treated area. These side effects usually subside within a few hours to a day after the treatment. Rarely, you may experience blistering or changes in skin pigmentation, but these side effects are uncommon and typically resolve on their own within a few weeks.

There is no downtime after laser hair removal. You can return to your regular activities immediately after the session. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and apply sunscreen to the treated area to protect the skin. Our team will provide post-treatment care instructions to ensure a speedy recovery and optimal results.

You may notice a reduction in hair growth after your first laser hair removal treatment at South Coast MedSpa. Optimal results are typically achieved after several treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Results vary, but most patients experience up to 90% hair reduction, and the results can last for several years.

At South Coast MedSpa, we recommend a series of 6-8 laser hair removal sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart for optimal results. To maintain your results, we suggest follow-up treatments every 6-12 months, depending on your hair growth patterns. Our team will provide you with a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.

My experience at South Coast MedSpa has been wonderful. They are extremely professional and friendly. I have used other companies for laser hair removal in the past and none compared when it comes to the costumer service and more importantly the results. Within a few sessions the different was astonishing. The physician used multiple methods to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. I would definitely recommend them.

I originally found South Coast MedSpa 4 years ago. I really wanted laser hair removal for underarms and bikini. I did extensive research to find the right place. All of the reviews were positive so I booked a consultation. The staff were very friendly and answered all of my questions and concerns. The treatment was awesome and I saw amazing results...

Joe S.

I am very happy with my experience with South Coast Med Spa. The staff is always very professional and pleasant to work with. Scheduling around my busy life has been a snap. The text/email reminders are great too. I am see them for laser hair removal and the treatment is working wonderfully. I am on my fifth of six sessions and there is hardly any hair left; one more and I will be ready for summer. I have recommended this office and staff to my friends and family.
