Laser Hair RemovalFresno, CA

To remove unwanted body hair, patients need to consider laser hair removal. This technique has been available since the mid-1990s and could be an effective way to get rid of hair in various parts of the body. You may have tried other treatments in the past, but the laser method could provide the results you want. Laser hair removal uses pulses of laser light to kill hair follicles and discourage the growth of hair.

Laser hair removal is available at Optimal Medical Group in Fresno and the surrounding area. Noticeable hair can be unattractive in some regions of the body. Instead of living with embarrassment, remove unwanted hair to enhance your body the way you desire.

Where and why hair is unwanted

There are certain places on a person’s body where they want hair. Most people prefer a full head of hair but are not too excited about excess hair on the arms, back or legs. Women with facial hair usually try different ways to remove it and keep it away. These situations can be awkward for the person and may even make it challenging to meet and talk with new people.

People may especially feel awkward in intimate settings or when they wear more revealing attire such as swimwear or lingerie. Of course, this all depends on the individual. What one person prefers when it comes to body hair will be entirely different for the next person.

At Optimal Medical Group, we strive to help patients alter the appearance of their body hair in a way that draws out their inner beauty and boosts their confidence.

Pros of laser hair removal

Patients who come to Optimal Medical Group can benefit from this treatment. Sometimes, shaving is not enough to get rid of hair, especially since it will likely grow back in the coming days or weeks. Using a laser can be more effective for many reasons. While this method will not eliminate the growth of hair forever, it can have the long-term results people want. Some of the benefits of this technique include the following:

  • Significantly reduces hair growth
  • Help the patient not have to shave in that area as frequently
  • Can be used on any area of the body
  • Can cause mild discomfort but is mostly pain-free

When to consider treatment

Unwanted body hair can pop up in various places now and then. People with visible hair in noticeable areas such as the face, neck or arms, should consider this treatment. Also, when other methods are not giving people the results they want, using a laser could be a good alternative.

If too much body hair in certain places is affecting a person’s self-image, the individual should consult with Dr. Juan Chavez, MD, Dr. Mireles-Chavez, MD, FAAP, or with our team to learn more about this option. A partner or family member may even recommend it.

The Process

After speaking with Optimal Medical Group and agreeing to undergo the treatment, our practitioner will prepare the patient. The patient may need to shave the desired area a day or two before the process and stay out of the sun as much as possible. On the day of the procedure, the patient will lie down or sit in a chair where our general practitioner applies a cooling gel to the person’s skin.

Next, the laser beam will pass through the person’s hair follicles and reduce the rate of their growth. Depending on how much hair the person wants to remove and how large the area is, there may be multiple treatments over several visits to our practice.

Follow-up care

There may be minimal pain with the treatment. Some patients feel a pin-prick sensation, while others feel sensitivity to the cold gel. The process could be as quick as a few minutes and as long as an hour. The length of treatment will depend on where the procedure is focusing.

The area in which the treatment took place could experience some swelling. The patient needs to call Optimal Medical Group if this swelling persists or if they develop a skin condition following the procedure.

Say goodbye to unwanted hair

Whether it is on the upper lip, under the arms, on the back or the bikini line, people often hate the sight of hair on certain parts of the body. You do not have to search much in Fresno to find a general practitioner with the right training to get rid of the hair you do not want. Call us today at 559-425-1118 for laser hair removal.
