What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a quick and long-lasting way to eliminate unwanted hair on the face and body. At Marcus Medical Spa, we are proud to use the
gold standard laser for our treatments – the Palomar Vectus. This highly effective laser targets the pigment in the hair and transmits heat energy
back to the hair follicle. In this way, the laser destroys the follicle without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues.
An extremely versatile procedure, laser hair removal can address unwanted hair virtually anywhere on the face and body, including the:

How to prepare for laser hair removal
In the weeks leading up to your laser hair removal procedure, you will be advised to adhere to certain guidelines. To begin, you’ll want to avoid
tweezing and waxing your hair for at least six weeks prior to your procedure. For the treatment to be effective, the roots of the hair need to be
intact so the laser can effectively target and destroy them. In addition, you’ll want to avoid excessive sun exposure six weeks before and after
your treatment to ensure an optimal result.

What to expect during your procedure
Laser hair removal in Redondo Beach at Marcus Medical Spa can be summed up in three words: quick, painless and effective. As laser hair removal is
completely noninvasive, most clients don’t require an anesthetic during treatment. However, depending on your unique needs, we may begin the
procedure by applying a numbing cream to ensure a pain-free experience. We will then adjust the laser so it’s at the appropriate setting for the
color of your skin, as well as the color, location and thickness of your hair. From there, the laser will target and destroy each individual
follicle in the treatment area, without damaging the surrounding tissues.
After your initial procedure, you will require follow-up treatments until your hair stops growing entirely. Typically, we are able to accomplish
this after six cycles of hair growth and six laser treatments. At that point, your unwanted hair will be completely eliminated – and you’ll possess
permanently silky smooth skin.
Are there any side effects?
As the Palomar Vectus laser was designed with client comfort in mind, side effects from laser hair removal at Marcus Medical Spa are extremely
mild. At most, you may experience minor redness, swelling and a sunburn sensation in the treatment area, all of which will subside gradually within
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
At Marcus Medical Spa, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer treatments if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As
such, we determine candidacy for all of our procedures on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and
desires. However, with the use of the extremely versatile Palomar Vectus laser, almost anyone can undergo this procedure, as the laser can be safely
used on all skin types – including very light skin, very dark skin and everything in between.
