Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the semi-permanent removal of hair using gentle, safe laser technology. The experienced care team at West Coast Aesthetics and Veins use cutting-edge xeo® laser technology, which is more effective and comfortable for patients.

Remove unwanted hair from nearly any area of the body. The most commonly treated areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Legs

  • Face

  • Underarms

  • Bikini line

  • Upper and lower back

The xeo laser from Cutera is one of the most customizable systems in the industry for laser hair removal. Using the xeo adjustable laser and light-based system, the WCAV Team can configure the laser to the exact settings needed based on the area being treated.

What are the advantages of laser hair removal?

There are several advantages to laser hair removal over its alternatives. Traditional shaving, waxing and hair removal lotions can cause irritation, bumps and painful ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal is a low-maintenance method of hair removal that leaves skin looking and feeling smoother.

In addition to removing unwanted body and facial hair, WCAV can use various settings on the xeo laser and light system to also treat discoloration. Patches, where hair grows back thick, might take on a darker pigment; the laser hair removal process can treat this, too.

How long does laser hair removal last?

With the Cutera xeo laser, the WCAV Team can customize your treatment plan depending on the areas being treated.

Oftentimes, people prefer to receive several treatments in multiple areas to not have to worry about waxing or shaving at all. Laser hair removal typically lasts 6-12 months without significant regrowth.

How often is laser hair removal recommended?

Depending on the size and location of the treated area, WCAV may adjust how often you need treatments. For most people receiving laser hair removal, the WCAV Team recommends 6-8 treatments to achieve smoother, softer skin.

When the pain and maintenance of shaving and waxing leave you unsatisfied, it might be time to try laser hair removal and get results that last for up to a year. Call or book online with West Coast Aesthetics and Veins.
