Unwanted hair is hard to manage, and most techniques irritate your skin and provide short-term results. Laser hair removal quickly and easily removes unwanted hair, leaving your skin smooth. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers laser hair removal for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Shaving causes painful bumps and only cuts the hair at the surface of the skin, leaving the hair to grow back very quickly, sometimes by the next day. Waxing is an option, but the procedure can be painful, especially if you are doing it on your own. Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle, causing it to fall out. The results last much longer compared to other methods.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a quick and easy way to eliminate unwanted hair from the face and body. In just a few minutes, you can remove hair from small areas, and larger areas such as the chest. It takes roughly 30 minutes to one hour. Some patients tell us that they have long-term hair removal after a few treatments.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The traditional methods of hair removal, such as creams, waxing, plucking, and shaving, can be time consuming, painful and are non-permanent. Laser hair reduction offers a safe and easy method of getting rid of unwanted hair. Here at Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, we use the Sciton® laser.

The laser works by emitting a light energy beam that passes through the skin and is attracted to the hair pigment.  The heat from the light destroys the hair follicle and keeps it from re-growing. The laser is most effective on hairs that are in the regrowth phase. Hair does not grow at the same rate, which is why it takes several sessions or treatments to achieve the desired result.

What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal

After your laser hair removal, you may notice that some hairs remain in the treatment area. Given a day or two, these hairs will fall out.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost in Modesto, CA?

The cost of treatment varies depending on the number of treatments required to achieve the desired result. Laser hair reduction treatments are sold in a series of treatments or a package of treatments, as one treatment will not suffice. For more detailed pricing please contact our office and schedule a complementary evaluation with our laser specialist. We accept cash, checks, major credit cards and financing through Med Loan Finance and CareCredit®.
