Bikini Waxing vs. Laser Hair Removal on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica

Laser hair removal has improved over the last several years to the point that it is less painful and more effective than ever before. At Kare Plastic Surgery & Skin Health Center on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, we offer truly comfortable laser hair removal options for men and women of all ages. Our clinicians are experts in bikini laser hair removal and laser hair removal of facial hair in a safe, comfortable, and professional medical clinic. 
Removing hair permanently with laser hair removal begins with an examination of your skin type and hair thickness. The darker your hair, the more likely you will respond to laser treatments. For this reason, dark hair on the armpits and bikini line, two of the most popular treatment areas in our Santa Monica clinic, are the most effectively treated. 
We ask patients to shave the area at least three days ahead of time so that we can evaluate the response of the stubble to the laser. Our office has three different laser hair removal machines, but most patients benefit from the Gentle Lase laser from Candela. This safe and effective laser treatment for unwanted hair does not utilize gels and shoots out a cooling spray to minimize discomfort during the laser treatment. 
With our lasers, there is little to no downtime, with most patients having mild redness that usually subsides within hours. We recommend scheduling laser hair removal once every three to four weeks for optimal results. 
Rather than waxing, laser hair removal in our Montana Avenue clinic leaves you with safe and longterm effective results for hair removal. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for laser hair removal by calling (310) 998-5533.
