San Diego Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Tom Pousti
Talks About Laser Hair Removal

Description

Traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief and may actually stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis, while effective, often requires years of ongoing and frequently painful treatments. All of these methods commonly result in scarring, allergic reactions, and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment inside the hair follicle without damaging delicate pores and structures of the skin. Because hair cycles through “growth” and “dormant” phases, and because during the “dormant” phase the follicle has no pigment, at least 2 or 3 treatments will be needed.

The Procedure

The patient is asked to wear eye protection consisting of an opaque covering or goggles. The area to be treated is then shaved. A small handpiece, or “wand” is placed against the skin and a burst of coolant is applied as the laser is activated. The handpiece is repositioned and the laser is activated again. The size or the area treated will determine the number of laser activations, or “pulses”, required. The laser procedure takes anywhere from 10 mins to 1 hour depending on the areas treated. Generally no anesthesia is used.

The Equipment

“GentleLASE with its patented Dynamic Cooling Device offers outstanding results. With GentleLASE Plus, we remove hair more quickly, effectively, and comfortably.” By Candela corp.

What To Expect After Surgery

There will be redness and bumps around the area treated. This should resolve quickly.

Patient Testimonial:

I have gotten laser hair removal treatment at Dr. Pousti’s office for my armpits, bikini line and my legs.
Before laser treatment, I would have stubble mid-day after shaving.
My legs were never really “smooth”.
My under arms were irritated from shaving daily.
My bikini line had ingrown hairs that were unattractive and painful.
Now, after a few treatments, I have NO MORE HAIR GROWTH from my under arms and minimal hair growth on my legs and bikini area.
The first treatment is the most painful (but not too bad) and each treatment after that is less and less painful.
I have never waxed before but I heard that waxing is MUCH MORE painful than the laser.
I love what this has done for me… I can’t wait until my teenage daughter is old enough to get the treatment as well so she wont’ have to go through years and years of shaving or waxing.
I recommend this treatment and Dr. Pousti’s office to anyone who asks.
