Conveniently located to serve San Ramon, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, and surrounding areas

 

What is Laser Hair Reduction and how does it work?

A laser is used to remove hair by emitting light, which the hair’s pigment (melanin) absorbs. The hair follicles, which are tube-shaped sacs within the skin that create hairs, are harmed by the conversion of light energy to heat. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

While laser hair removal can effectively postpone hair growth for extended periods, permanent hair removal is not always the outcome. That is why we call the treatment hair reduction instead of hair removal; to avoid misunderstandings. Clear expectations are the basis for best outcomes.

For initial hair removal, multiple laser hair removal treatments are required; additional maintenance treatments may also be required. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types. This advanced light-based treatment reduces unwanted hair on the face and body. It takes an average of 6-10 treatments to see hair reduction results. Treatments are scheduled 4-10 weeks apart for optimal results.

FAQ

What does Laser hair reduction do?

This treatment reduces unwanted hair with a series of treatments.

How long does it take?

This is dependent on the area being treated. A full body treatment can take 2-4 hours. Treatment confined to only a small area can take as little as 15 minutes.

How many treatments will I need?

On average, a series of 6-10 treatments are optimal for best hair reduction results. Treatments are to be completed 4-10 weeks apart.

At BlossomMD, packages start with 8 treatments minimum for best results.

Following the package series we also offer a special price for maintenance laser hair removal treatments.

*Special price is only for clients that have completed an 8 treatment package.

Is it painful?

Some clients describe this treatment as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band, but discomfort or pain will vary with different areas of treatment. We will ensure you are feeling comfortable and minimize pain. Please be sure to shave before the appointment to minimize the pain.

Prepare
  • Avoid sun exposure, in the treatment area, for four weeks prior to your laser session.
  • Wear sunscreen if the treated area is exposed to sunlight.
  • Shave the area to be treated.
  • Do not apply lotions, creams, or makeup to the area prior to treatment.
  • Please wait for three days after the use of antibiotics.
  • Do not pluck hair or wax or use depilatories.
Aftercare
  • Avoid exercise post-treatment (that day only).
  • Avoid taking a hot shower post-treatment (that day only).
  • Avoid exfoliating post-treatment (that day only).
  • Avoid tanning for two weeks post-treatment.
When can I expect to see the results?

Typically, it will take 6-10 treatments for best results. To ensure those best results, BlossomMD offers packages starting from an 8 treatment package. Following the package series we also offer a special price for maintenance laser hair removal treatments.

*Special price is only for clients that have completed an 8 treatment package.

How long do the results last?

After laser hair removal treatment, unwanted hair will likely grow back on the chin, neck, and other areas of the face or the body. This may be due in part to hormonal fluctuations and the reactivation of hair follicles by androgens and hormones, like testosterone. This will vary greatly and will depend on the client and individual factors.

The truth is that hair will continue to regrow and that is why this kind of treatment must be looked at in the scope of a timeline or process. This is definitely not a one-off kind of procedure. A planned course of treatment is required for results and maintenance.

Our skilled and experienced providers will provide you with a treatment plan based on your own individual circumstance, personalized and customized for your best outcomes.

How much does it cost?

The cost will differ depending on the area being treated. Because we want you to see the best possible results, and that requires a minimum amount of treatments/visits, our treatment packages have an 8 treatment minimum.

*After your initial 8 treatment package, you will have access to special maintenance prices. Contact us today and we’ll discuss what’s best for you and how much it will cost.
