Shaving, waxing, tweezing and depilatory creams may work to keep hair away temporarily, but they can also take up a lot of your time! Shaving requires almost daily time, while waxing involves painfully ripping out hair every few weeks, and no matter how hard they try, depilatory creams will never smell good! These reasons and more are why so many women are turning to laser hair removal as a great alternative!

How it works

Laser hair removal works by a trained technician using a laser to stop hair growth by heating up the root, causing it to not be able to grow hair. The procedure takes a few weeks to be fully completed, but soon after your first treatment, hair will begin to fall out.
There isn’t much pain invoked in the procedure, with most patients just reporting a sort s ‘snapping’ feeling, like elastic being snapped against their skin. Your skin may appear red and slightly swollen for a few days afterwards, but it quickly subsides.

How long it lasts

So if laser hair removal is sounding like a good alternative to you, you may be wondering how long it lasts. The answer slightly differs from person to person, but most people stay hair-free for at least two years after hair disappears.


The obvious benefits are that you don’t have to think about hair removal for two whole years. Those two years if heading out if the house in any clothing you like, not even has to give shaving, waxing or anything a thought.

Another great benefit is no ingrown hair or razor burn. You will also notice the skin on your legs being a lot smoother and clearer since you’re not always irritating it with sharp razors or harsh treatments.

Laser hair removal might not be permanent, but for most people it lasts for years to come. Enjoy not having to go through any hair removal for years with laser hair removal at the Los Feliz Medspa!
