Unwanted Hair

Reaching for the razor may be your first instinct when it comes to getting rid of the hair on your body. However, though this may be the typical go-to method, it is far from comfortable. The burn and the irritation caused by razor shaving are regular realities that most of us have to contend with. To combat some of the irritation of razors, some may use items such as hair removal creams to get rid of the unwanted hair as well. The downside with using the store bought hair removal creams is that they may cause irritation and burning due to the harsh chemicals found in those very products. Thankfully, alternatives do exist and we’re happy to provide one at Allergy & Skin Spa. If you struggle with unwanted hair, our GentleMax PRO™ laser hair removal system could be an excellent choice. To learn more, we welcome you to schedule a consultation here in Los Angeles, CA.

What Causes Unwanted Hair?

The amount of unwanted hair on your body is mainly determined by your hormone levels. The hormones responsible for your hair quantity are called androgens. These hormones control the density of body hair after we reach puberty and are more active in men. The more androgens you have, the thicker, darker, and more visible your hair will be. For those who have sensitive skin, having an excessive amount of body hair can cause quite a bit of skin irritation at times. At Allergy & Skin Spa, we offer GentleMax PRO™ laser hair removal that can effectively eliminate unwanted body hair without aggressive irritation.

What Are the Signs?

Dealing with unwanted hair can be a hassle. Buying more and more products to remove the hair can be frustrating when it seems as if the hair grows back within 72 hours. Along with having too much hair, you may also experience ingrown hairs, blackheads, and redness, especially if you have sensitive skin. Hair regrowth after shaving can be especially itchy and uncomfortable for those with these types of issues. If you rarely shave because of the discomfort that traditional shaving causes, our GentleMax PRO™ laser hair removal may be just the right choice for you. Treatments with this device are performed with precision and care to ensure you get the great results you want without downtime.

How Do We Remove Unwanted Hair?

The procedure for laser hair removal is simple and doesn’t involve any invasive steps. At the start of the procedure, Dr. Kia may trim some excess hair before using the laser hair removal device. This makes the process much easier. In some cases, a cold gel may also be applied in the treatment area to enable the GentleMax PRO™’s energy to penetrate faster and deeper into the skin. As a result of the intense heat produced by the device, your hair follicles will be eradicated, which, in turn, will also prevent future hair growth.
