What is Laser Hair Removal?
For many men and women, excess hair is a problem. Shaving, waxing, threading, and tweezing all take time and upkeep and get expensive over time. Laser hair removal is an effective and safe way to remove unwanted body hair for the long term. Contact Forever Ageless for some of the best results in laser hair removal Newport Beach has to offer.
How Does it Work?
Laser hair removal is conducted using a handheld device, which delivers a highly concentrated beam of light targeted at the hair follicle. Once heated, the hair follicle is destroyed, and the hair cannot grow back. Laser treatment for hair removal at Forever Ageless is a safe and effective treatment. The heat generated from each laser pulse is very targeted so the skin surrounding the hair is not affected.

How Long Will Each Laser Treatment Take?
Laser hair removal treatments can last from a few minutes to around an hour, depending on the area being treated and quantity of excess hair. Your upper lip will take minutes, while larger areas such as the back or legs require more time for treatment.
Is the Treatment Painful?
Most patients have reported the procedure to be less painful than waxing. You may feel a different sensation as the laser crosses over the treatment area. Many say it feels similar to a rubber band lightly snapping on your skin. After your laser hair removal in Newport Beach and Orange County, you will look and feel as if you have a minor sunburn. Moisturizers and a cool compress over the treated area will help ease any discomfort.
What is the Recovery like?
There is little-to-no recovery period after laser hair removal, and no downtime. You can return to your usual routine or activities after your treatment. However, be sure not to expose treated areas to the sun, or pluck or wax the area for a few weeks after your procedure.
Potential Side Effects
Your skin may appear red or irritated, which lasts about a day or so. Other common side effects are discomfort and swelling. Less common side effects can occur for some patients, such as:
- Herpes simplex (cold sore) outbreaks
- Skin lightening or darkening
How many sessions do I need?
Most patients will need 3-5 treatments in order to destroy all the hairs in their growth stage.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Most people compare the pain caused by laser hair removal to the feeling of having a rubber band snapped against their skin, but pain tolerance varies from person to person. We will apply a topical numbing cream to the area to help minimize discomfort.
Do I need to shave before laser hair removal?
You should shave 24-48 hours before your session, but do not pluck or wax the treatment area.
How long do the results last?
The results are so long lasting they are often considered permanent, but you may see some lighter, finer hairs regrow at times. Some patients may need touch ups.
Where can laser hair removal be done?
Laser hair removal can be done almost anywhere on the body, including:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
