How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser Hair Removal | Non Invasive | Med Spa | Encino | Sherman Oaks CALaser hair removal is a proven, efficient, and sustainable aesthetic procedure designed to remove or reduce unwanted hair in various parts of the body. However, the outcomes with laser hair removal can vary, depending on the type of laser technology and equipment used, and the skills and experience of the laser treatment provider at the med spa.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier facility providing laser hair removal and other procedures. It is equipped with cutting edge laser technology to produce highly satisfying outcomes in hair removal. The laser equipment at the med spa has the capability to treat all skin types, and can achieve most efficient results in a virtually painless manner.

Rejuvenate provides laser hair removal and other aesthetic and anti-aging procedures to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding communities.

High Precision and Targeted Treatment

The key advantage with laser hair removal over traditional hair removal procedures is that the results are long lasting and highly precise. The laser beam targets the melanin or pigment in the unwanted hair follicles. The melanin absorbs the sharp light, and thereby receives intense heat energy. It destroys the follicle, and stops future hair growth.

The laser expert at the med spa will explain to the patient during initial consultation that hair grows in cycles, which means that a single laser treatment will destroy the hair which are in the current growth cycle. In order to destroy all the hair follicles during different growth cycles, the patient will need on average four to eight treatment sessions.

Each treatment session can be spaced four to six weeks apart with an aim to capture the hairs during their active growth phase. Laser hair removal experts at the Rejuvenate Medical Spa will review the unique aesthetic needs of the patient and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. Rejuvenate receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations.

Laser Technology

Rejuvenate med spa is fitted with the Asclepion Mediostar Next laser technology. This is one of the most advanced and innovative laser hair removal machines available today. The “Gentle Gliding” technique and “Pre-Cooling” of the skin are the unique features of this technology that are designed to produce smooth and long lasting results with the least possible discomfort.


The procedure begins with the shaving of the area that needs to be treated. This is done a few days prior to the day of laser treatment. On the day of the procedure, the treatment provider may apply a local anesthetic cream on the area for patient comfort, but this is not a necessary requirement. Sometimes a gel, spray or a cool laser tip may be used to maintain patient comfort during the procedure. The choice will depend on the type of laser technique used.

The laser is adjusted for size, power, and pulse frequency to optimize the treatment. The patient is required to wear special glasses designed to protect the eyes from sharp laser light. The treatment provider will focus the laser energy on targeted hair follicles using a hand-held device. The length of a single treatment session can vary according to the size of the area to be treated.
