About Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal with a laser has become one of the most popular elective services in America. It's an effective way for the long-term removal of hair on the face and body. This laser treatment usually leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and provides great, lasting results compared to other common methods. Plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas at Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA are pleased to offer effective and safe laser hair removal services for both women and men. With various laser options (Venus Velocity and Lumenis's LightSheer), hair can be easily addressed in areas, like the arms, legs, back, face, chest, and bikini area.

Ideal Candidates

Hair removal with a laser is a safe treatment that is helpful for many people. At your initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:

  • Want to reduce hair on their face or body
  • Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
  • Have light skin and dark hair
  • Are in good, overall physical health

Procedure Technique

On the day of your procedure, you will lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and creams. During the procedure, a team member will smooth out the area to create a clear pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will focus on and destroy the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to attain optimal results. Your sessions are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to change to the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The revolutionary laser technology we use at Allegro MedSpa of Novato targets only the hair follicle, which preserves the skin and other tissue in the treated area.

What to Expect

Although this procedure is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn when lasers are used. After your treatment, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your treatment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to minimize any mild discomfort.
