Unwanted hair is very frustrating, no matter where it is on the body. Although it is a problem for both sexes, traditional female standards of beauty have made it more in demand among women. This excess hair production usually happens because of hirsutism, or an increase in the production of androgens (male hormones in the female body).

There are a number of factors that can lead to hirsutism in women. Polycystic ovary syndrome, Cushing’s syndrome, congenital adrenallaser hair removal hyperplasia and use of certain medications can all result in hirsutism. And no woman wants extra hair on her face or anywhere else.

Tweezing, waxing and shaving are among the most common methods used for getting rid of the unwanted hair. However, these hair removal methods last only for a limited period of time and can cause severe discomfort, as well. No one actually likes shaving or waxing her legs, and every woman has badly cut herself at least once or twice. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is a simple procedure that does not cause any kind of pain and is extremely effective in removing the unwanted hair—permanently.

At Los Feliz MedSpa, we perform laser hair removal using the most advanced techniques and lasers to ensure that you get the best possible results from the treatment. The procedure involves directing a concentrated beam of light on the hair follicles. The laser destroys the hair follicles completely, thus stopping them from growing any further. You will have to undergo this treatment multiple times to completely remove the unwanted hair from your body, but soon all hair will be permanently eliminated from the treated area.

Just like with waxing or shaving, you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment is done. Really, the only difference is that in a week or two, you will start to notice considerably less hair growing back.

Removing the unwanted hair from the face and arms through waxing can prove to be very painful. If you want to remove your unwanted hair without experiencing any kind of pain, look into laser hair removal. You’ll love the results.
