Consider Laser Hair Removal for Unwanted Facial Hair

Featured Image

Plucking, waxing, and shaving may effectively remove body and facial hair for a brief period, but not without extraneous pain, time, or money. At Bloom Medical Group, our team of specialists offers laser hair removal to provide patients with softer skin and long-lasting results with effortless ease. Board-certified physician Dr. Nasir Mohammedi works with patients throughout Whittier, CA to help meet their unique laser hair removal needs.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment used to remove body and facial hair via laser technology. At Bloom Medical Group, Dr. Mohammedi utilizes the innovative 810nm Diode laser hair removal technology to disable each targeted hair follicle. With time, unwanted hair slowly sheds, creating a softer appearance to the skin.

Benefits of laser hair removal

Laser hair removal treatments provide patients with numerous benefits, including:

  • Short and virtually painless treatment sessions

  • Customized treatment plans for the body and face

  • Long-lasting results

  • Prevention of ingrown hairs

  • Softens the skin

  • Saves time and money on alternative hair removal supplies

Am I an ideal candidate for laser hair removal?

Both men and women are excellent candidates for laser hair removal at Bloom Medical Group if they:

  • Reside in or near Whittier, CA

  • Are seeking alternatives to waxing, plucking, shaving, or bleaching

  • Are in good, general health

  • Have darker hair with lighter skin

Dr. Mohammedi will review your personal and medical histories to ascertain if you can safely participate in laser hair removal treatments.

How does laser hair removal treatment work?

Laser hair removal takes place at Bloom Medical group within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. In some cases, Dr. Mohammedi may apply a numbing ointment to the skin. The laser technology is applied to each target area, and patients often report feeling a mild sting or discomfort during the session. Once your session is complete, you are free to resume normal daily activities.

Is there any downtime after laser hair removal?

Since laser hair removal is a noninvasive procedure, patients do not typically require downtime after treatment. Patients may experience some tenderness to the skin, which resolves on its own within a couple of days.

Are laser hair removal results permanent?

Within three weeks after the initial treatment session, patients usually notice maximum results and complete shedding of hair over each treatment area. Laser hair removal results are considered semi-permanent because some hair follicles are not affected by the technology during the first session. However, many hair follicles are removed, and hair will not grow back after the first session, making body hair more manageable.

Recommended number of laser hair removal treatment sessions

The number of treatment sessions is determined by the patient’s personal goals and Dr. Mohammedi’s professional recommendations. Some hair follicles are in a dormant stage during the first session and will be unaffected by laser treatment. To get rid of body hair, Dr. Mohammedi will recommend multiple treatment sessions spaced throughout a specific timeframe.
