Before & After

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses the power of a concentrated laser beam that passes through the skin, targeting hair follicles. The pigment within the hair follicle absorbs the light, which causes damage to those follicles. This process slows hair growth and often prevents hair from growing back in the treated areas.

The laser will only target the hair follicles and does not cause damage to your skin. To protect your skin and minimize any discomfort of the procedure, we use instruments that feature a cooling device at the tip. The device can also treat numerous hair follicles at once, which can significantly reduce your total treatment time.

What areas can be treated by Laser Hair Removal?

  • Abdomen
  • Arms, Underarms
  • Back, Shoulders, Lower back
  • Bikini
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Face, Nose, Ears, Chin, Lips, Neck
  • Legs
  • Shoulders

Main benefits of laser hair removal

  • Convenience of not having to shave, wax, or use removal creams
  • No more irritation or itching from razors
  • Skin that is always smooth and beach-ready
  • Minimal discomfort during treatments
  • 90%-95% hair reduction achieved

How many treatments are needed to get results?

After your first treatment, you can expect a noticeable reduction in the amount of hair. You will likely need six to nine treatments before you experience permanent results. Although you should avoid sun exposure to the treated areas, there is no downtime associated with the procedure.

Introducing the Lightsheer DUET

Laser Cliniqúe is proud to announce the latest innovation in our La Jolla and San Diego Laser Hair Removal facility, the Lightsheer DUET.


  • The Lumenis Lightsheer DUET is the GOLD Standard laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light.
  • The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles.
  • During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow.
  • With the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional alternatives.
  • The Lightsheer DUET also offers the gold standard Lightsheer ET handpiece with a cooling chill tip for smaller areas. A vacuum-assist technology and the large spot size make hair removal fast and comfortable, without the need for topical anesthetics and messy gels.

Hence, the Lightsheer DUET is 6 times FASTER, virtually PAINLESS, and MORE EFFECTIVE! The treatment uses a laser to eliminate hair follicles beneath the surface of the skin.

Recovery and results

There are typically very few side effects from laser hair removal. You may notice redness and slight swelling at the treatment site, but this usually subsides within 1-2 days. In the meantime, aloe vera can be used on any areas that may feel hot. After your first laser hair removal treatment, you may notice a considerable reduction of hair in the lasered area. You will see more and more of a difference with each session you complete. For the best results and smoothest recovery, avoid the following:

  • Puncturing the skin in any way
  • Removing any hairs in the treated area 
  • Activities that may make you sweat for 24 hours 
  • Hot water for at least 24-48 hours 
  • Makeup or perfume near the lasered area for 24-48 hours 
  • UV exposure for one week
  • Any type of skin treatments in the lasered area for two weeks

Who makes the ideal candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal works by identifying the melanin pigment within the hair follicles and targeting it for destruction. Therefore, the best candidates for laser hair removal should have dark hair and lighter skin. The darker the skin is, the less effective the laser energy is in penetrating the roots of the follicles. (This is also why it’s critical that you avoid tanning in the sun, spray-tanning, or baking in a tanning bed for a week before your session.)

Individuals with grey or white hair are not typically good candidates for laser hair removal because their hair follicles are void of the necessary pigment to make the laser energy effective. Those with naturally darker skin tones can be treated with new improved lasers designed to remove unwanted hair without causing hyperpigmentation. Our team at Laser Cliniqúe will help to determine the best type of laser for your unique skin and hair combination.

FAQ

What are the advantages of having laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal has longer-lasting results than other temporary hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, electrolysis, threading, tweezing or plucking. The laser uses a wide tip that treats many hairs at once instead of treating hair-by-hair like tweezing, plucking or electrolysis. Large areas, such as the back or legs, can be treated in a very short period of time. This hair removal treatment is a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for permanent hair reduction.

Is the procedure safe?

The laser light, which is directed at the hair, penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the follicle beneath the hair. As the light is absorbed, it is converted to heat, which in-turn produces inflammation – eliminating the hair follicle’s ability to grow new hair. A series of laser hair removal treatments is required to achieve the maximum results.
The treatment produces a slight prickly sensation. Most patients can tolerate the treatment without difficulty. However, since every person’s level of sensitivity is different and treatment areas may vary, your procedure will be tailored for you.

How does Laser Hair removal work?

The treatment time will depend on the size of area(s) you wish to have treated. For example, the underarms may take 10 minutes to treat, but the legs may take 45 minutes to treat. Once we know what areas you would like to have treated, we will be able to give you a time estimate.

How long does a Laser Hair removal treatment take?

The treatment time depends on size of area(s) you wish to have treated. For example, the underarms may take ten (10) minutes to treat, and the legs may take forty-five (45) minutes to treat. Once we know what areas you want treated we can give you a time estimate, but they are generally very short.

How much does Laser Hair removal cost?

Laser Hair Removal costs vary depending on the area being treated and if the session itself is a one-time treatment or part of a package. Packages reduce costs per session. A face treatment could cost $199, while a four-session treatment package might reduce that to $150/treatment.

How many Laser Hair removal treatments are required?

Typically, six to nine treatments are required. Most patients can discontinue treatments after the sixth appointment, however, an occasional touchup may be needed. You are an individual, and this is only an estimate, and based upon you following the recommended treatment schedule. It is also important to understand that results may vary depending on the individual hair type, certain medications you take, your hormone levels, and issues such as pregnancy and peri-menopause.

How long does it take to recover from Laser Hair removal?

There is NO downtime, although you will need to keep the treated areas out of direct sun after treatment.
The treated areas will redden which is the desired skin reaction. The redness usually subsides within a few minutes to a few hours and returns to normal. You can then reapply your make-up, return to work, and continue with your normal daily activities immediately following treatment.

When can I expect to see results from my Laser Hair removal?

After your initial treatment, you may notice a significant reduction of hair. With each treatment, you will see a difference in the areas being treated. You should notice a significant reduction after your series of treatments have been completed.
