Facial Hair Growth – Why?
Many women live with unwanted facial hair around the lips and between the brows, or sprouting in the sideburn zone. Your ethnic background plays a role in the amount of facial hair growth you live with, as do the hormonal changes associated with aging. Androgens are male sex hormones, but are present in women as well. With excess levels of androgens, unwanted hair growth will increase.
Certain medications can stimulate hair growth, including birth control pills, seizure medications, high blood pressure medications, and others. Those who use some topical prescriptions may be warned against waxing, as skin quality is affected. Whether your unwanted facial hair is the result of heredity, the use of medications, or other factor, a more permanent solution is a relief – and at Marcus Medical Spa, we can help. Our advanced laser treatment for unwanted facial hair resolves hair growth in the following areas:
- Mouth (above and below)
- Between brows
- Or other facial ares
Advanced Laser Hair Removal System
We use the most advanced system to remove unwanted hair, the Palomar Vectus laser. The treatment is appropriate for all skin types, and virtually pain-free. If you are tired of constantly dealing with unwanted hair, and want a long-term solution that is fast, easy, and effective, this treatment produces outstanding results. Large areas such as legs and back can be treated in only about half an hour, and smaller areas in just a few short minutes. The system targets the hair follicles without damaging the skin’s surface or the surrounding tissues, leaving your skin clear and smooth.
Unwanted Body Hair
Both women and men can be embarrassed by excess body hair on arms, legs, or back. To achieve the smooth, clear skin you envision, our Redondo Beach laser hair removal process truly delivers. The speed of the treatment is a big advantage that our clients appreciate. Those with exceptionally heavy hair growth may require several appointments, but the appointments are fast and painless. Older laser hair removal systems could not provide the speed and efficiency we offer when resolving excess hair growth on any body area. The system is perfect for targeting excess body hair on these areas:

Unwanted Hair -- Laser Treatments That Work
If you are dismayed by unwanted hair on your face or body, at Marcus Medical Spa, we invite you to find out more about our state-of-the-art laser hair removal system. Our founder, Dr. Keith Marcus, is committed to staying ahead of the curve in all recent developments in technology, and our laser hair removal system produces exceptional results.
Only a specific amount of hair can be removed in one treatment, as hair has a lifecycle. Your hair removal treatment will typically require 4 – 6 treatments, spaced over several weeks, with touch-ups now and again. We do everything possible to provide our clients with permanent hair removal, and free them from the constant waxing, plucking, and shaving. Our system permanently reduces facial and body hair, involves fast, easy treatments, and has little to no downtime or period of recover
Light-Based System for Better Results
Our innovative system uses light to target areas of unwanted hair growth, follicle by follicle. The only way to halt the ongoing growth of hair is to address the source – the actual follicle that produces the hair. This system produces better results through targeting the melanin (pigment) in hair to reach the follicle itself. Side effects are typically extremely mild, with minor redness or swelling that quickly diminishes. The treatment is easy to tolerate, feeling like a light “snapping” on the skin as the laser does its work.
