How does laser hair removal work?

Imagine never having to deal with razor burns or messy shaves again. Laser hair removal makes this possible by using beams of highly concentrated light designed specifically to remove unwanted hair. These light beams target the melanin (or color) in your hair follicles, heating them up and ultimately disrupting the growth cycle. What's great about this technology is its precision. It targets hairs without harming the surrounding skin, making it a smart choice for delicate areas.

Is laser hair removal safe for the bikini area?

At Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine, your safety is our top concern. Laser hair removal has a long track record of safety when performed by trained professionals. Dr. Fontaine is experienced in handling each patient's unique needs, especially when it comes to more sensitive spots like the bikini area. We adjust the laser settings according to your skin and hair type, ensuring a safe procedure with minimal discomfort. Most clients experience slight redness or sensitivity after treatment, but this usually subsides quickly.

Is laser hair removal painful?

No one loves the pinch of a wax strip, and thankfully, laser hair removal in the bikini area is often less painful than waxing. The sensation is often compared to the snap of a small rubber band against the skin. While the bikini area is a bit more sensitive, our clients generally report that it's quite manageable. Plus, our lasers come with cooling features to help soothe your skin as we go, making the experience as comfortable as possible.

How many laser hair treatments will I need?

Everyone's hair grows at its own pace, and this growth occurs in cycles. For effective laser hair removal in the bikini area, it's crucial to target hairs during their growth phase when they're most vulnerable to the laser. At Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine, we schedule these sessions several weeks apart. This interval allows your skin to heal properly between treatments and ensures that different hair follicles, which might have been dormant during earlier sessions, are now in the growth phase and ready to be targeted. Our approach is to personalize your treatment plan, adapting to your hair's unique growth cycle to ensure comprehensive and lasting results in San Diego.
