Unlocking the Secret to Silky Smooth Skin

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair from any part of the body. The Cynosure Elite IQ system used by South Coast MedSpa uses a concentrated beam of light to target the melanin in the hair follicles, heating and destroying them at the root. This prevents future hair growth, leaving skin smooth for longer. Whether you want to reduce hair on your legs, arms, face, or anywhere else, laser hair removal can help you achieve your goals.

At South Coast MedSpa, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional expertise and unparalleled quality of service. Each medical provider on our team undergoes extensive clinical classroom training and clinical case studies, equipping them with the knowledge and expertise to provide you with the best care possible. Our comprehensive in-house training program goes above and beyond to empower our providers with an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of laser technology, allowing us to customize treatments and effectively address your specific hair loss goals.

The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal works by using a concentrated beam of light that targets the melanin in the hair follicles. The laser’s energy is absorbed by the melanin, which then converts into heat, damaging the hair follicle and preventing it from producing new hair. The Cynosure Elite IQ system provides two platforms, an Alexandrite Platform and a Yag Platform, which are optimized for different skin types. With repeated treatments, hair growth is permanently reduced, providing long-lasting smoothness.

Suitable for All Skin Types

The Cynosure Elite IQ system is suitable for all skin types, from light to dark. The system uses two platforms, an Alexandrite Platform and a Yag Platform, to target hair follicles while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. The Alexandrite Platform is best suited for patients with lighter skin tones, while the Yag Platform is optimized for darker skin types. The Cynosure Elite IQ laser uses innovative Skintel melanin reader technology to customize settings, thus making treatments faster, more effective, and less painful. Whether you’re Indian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Caucasian, African American, Asian, or any other ethnicity, the laser will treat your skin safely and effectively.

Your Complete Laser Hair Removal Experience

Preparing for laser hair removal is essential to achieving the best possible results. Before your treatment, you should avoid sun exposure and stop any hair removal methods that pull the hair out by the roots, like waxing, plucking, or threading. Shave the treatment area the day before your appointment to ensure the laser targets the hair follicle instead of the hair shaft.

During your laser hair removal session, you will receive safety goggles to protect your eyes from the laser’s intense light. A trained specialist will use the Cynosure Elite IQ to target the hair follicles, ensuring the surrounding skin is protected. You may feel slight discomfort, but the Zimmer Chiller Cryo 6 cooling system will reduce any pain or heat sensation.

Side Effects
After your laser hair removal session at South Coast MedSpa, you may experience some redness, swelling, or mild discomfort in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and should subside within a few hours to a few days. In rare cases, some patients may experience temporary blistering, scarring, or changes in skin color.

After your laser hair removal session at South Coast MedSpa, you can immediately resume your daily activities. However, you should avoid sun exposure and heat for a few days after the treatment. Applying a cool compress or aloe vera gel to the treated area can soothe discomfort.

After your laser hair removal session, you will notice reduced hair growth in the treated area. However, several treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results since hair grows in cycles. The results of laser hair removal are long-lasting and nearly permanent.

The number of treatments needed for optimal results varies depending on the individual’s hair type and skin tone. On average, 6 to 8 treatments are recommended for long-lasting results. You may need occasional touch-ups to target stray hair follicles that may arise.
