Shaving, waxing, threading, and depilatory creams are good, short-term fixes for getting rid of unwanted hair. But what about for long-term solutions? Laser hair removal is the answer. At our Sheer Beauty office in Inland Empire, we offer the most advanced lasers used to accomplish full body hair removal for male and female patients. The hair removal experts at Sheer Beauty (under the direction of board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ben Childers) can safely use lasers for the face and neck, chest, underarms, arms, legs, back, abdomen, and more. Wherever you have hair, we can get rid of it. Our laser technology targets hair at the follicle to kill it off to prevent future hair growth. We work with a variety of skin tones, types, and hair densities to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"I go to Amber for Botox and for laser hair removal. She's just amazing! She will do anything to make you feel comfortable and she knows exactly what she's doing. She will be honest with you about how many units are necessary and will never over do or under do your Botox. I couldn't be more happy with my results. The staff are also amazing, extremely helpful, and friendly. I love this place :o)"- J.D. / Yelp / Nov 18, 2014
What to Expect
Throughout the procedure, patients will feel slight pressure as the device is pulling up the skin. However, the laser beam itself only feels like a light sting. Most devices are made with a cooling sequence that occurs between the laser pulses, which helps ease discomfort and reduce the chance of unwanted side effects. There are multiple laser hair removal vacuum devices on the market today that come in different sizes depending on the size of the area being treated. The laser technology will depend on what works best with your hair texture and skin type.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Anyone with unwanted hair is a candidate for laser hair removal. However, individuals with darker hair and lighter skin often experience better results. The number of sessions that will be required to produce the desired results will depend on the thickness of hair, how much hair exists in an area, color of the hair, and what the ultimate goal is. Individuals with lighter colored hair may require more treatments.
Why so Many Sessions?
Hair growth occurs in cycles. Some hairs may be in the middle of their growth phase during the treatment session, while others may be dormant. Spreading out the treatment allows the dormant hairs to grow and gives the area time so that all of the hairs are eventually targeted during treatment. Between treatments, the hairs that do grow can be shaved because the follicle is not affected.
What is the Recovery?
Laser hair removal results in zero downtime. The skin will be pink and a tingling sensation may reside on the treated area for a couple of hours after treatment. Patients can leave their appointment and go directly back to work.
Will the Hair Grow Back?
Laser hair removal is considered a solid solution for hair removal, however it is referred to as semi-permanent. There can still be some hair growth that occurs where the laser technology did not hit. Therefore, even though the majority of the hair will be gone, some hairs can still pop up. Patients find that these are tremendously easier to manage than before the original treatments. Additional laser hair removal treatments can also be scheduled to take care of these as well.
