Laser Hair Removal
810nm Diode treatment targets the root bulb of the hair follicle with a wavelength of light that is absorbed by the hair pigment of the active hair follicle (anagen phase), which heats the root bulb to a temperature that permanently disables the hair follicle. 30% – 50% of hair is in anagen at any time, this is why multiple treatments are necessary. The remaining hair then slowly sheds over the next three weeks leaving a smooth soft appearance. Three to six treatments are usually needed for maximal results. This procedure is quick and painless.

Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"I came to Bloom medical group for laser hair removal for my underarms. Linh, the nurse practitioner, helped me and did an amazing job! She was very helpful and provided me all the information I needed to know. She was also very gentle as I was also nervous when I saw the machine. My underarms need a few more treatments, but I saw results after the first session!"- I.N. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2015
"I’ve been coming here for almost a year now. Due to high stress levels, fluctuating hormones, and negligence to my routine...disaster hit my face. I needed to get someone to fix what over the counter products wouldn’t. I have really fair, sensitive skin. It tends to get red easily with certain ingredients. I’m still not sure what was causing all my skin troubles, but bottom line: Dr. Mohammedi will help you form a gameplan with a realistic outcome. The staff is wonderful as well! Jenny is super awesome and Patty does great with making sure you don’t forget your appointments. You won’t feel like another number in a waiting room. However, the wait time is inconsistent. I don’t mind it at all because I know that results cannot be rushed.As soon as I’ve saved up some more, laser hair removal, and perhaps fix some of that tell tale evidence of rapid weight loss...."- M.S. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2011
"I live in the LA area but a friend referred me to this place and I’m happy she did. I had a few dark spots on my face that I needed removed and while I was there I even had had a hair removal treatment done as well. I didn’t plan on it but I’m glad I had it done. Great job!!This office has such a warm and welcoming staff, not cold and stale like so many offices. I recommend Bloom to anyone looking to have any cosmetic treatment done. It’s an excellent choice!!"- B.F. / Yelp / Oct 20, 2008
"I have been getting microdermabrasions here and I absolutely love it. It has improved my skin dramatically. I also have had 3 sessions of laser hair removal done and now thanks to Dr. Mohammedi I only shave once a month. Love it!"- L.N. / Google / Sep 20, 2015
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
On the day of your procedure, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as the areas of your skin to be treated are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and lotions. During the procedure, a team member will slightly stretch the skin to create a direct pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and kill the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your treatments will be staggered to give the treated areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Bloom Medical Group is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin in the treatment area.
What happens after?
Although laser hair removal is mostly gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn when lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to your daily activities, but you need to avoid exercise or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your session, we suggest anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to minimize any mild discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost based on the size and number of areas being treated, plus how many sessions are needed to get a smooth result. To help put the cost of laser hair removal into perspective, think of the time and energy you are putting into shaving, waxing, or other temporary methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is generally cheaper ultimately and can save you energy and time in the long run. Our team will develop a treatment plan with the number of appointments we suggest and costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces long-lasting improvements. While patients can enjoy the results of the treatment for years, it is considered semi-permanent because some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. However, patients find the majority of the hair follicles are not growing anymore after their plan has concluded, and even if a few hairs pop up, it is easier to manage. Additional laser treatments can be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in phases. When some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are resting. Since every follicle is in a different stage, multiple treatment sessions are usually needed to target each follicle when it's active. Getting your treatments over several weeks to help you get effective results and smoother skin.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The process of laser hair removal may cause mild discomfort, but it is not a painful procedure. Most patients should feel a slight sting when the laser targets and removes the follicle. We may apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment. Patients who are used to getting waxed think that laser hair removal feels much less discomfort than a normal waxing session.
Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many lasers to choose from, and Bloom Medical Group uses the latest hair removal technology for patients with most hair types and colors. The laser we invested in provides excellent results, and we continue to upgrade our office as newer lasers enter the marketplace. We encourage you to ask us for more information on our system during your initial consult.
