There have been many advances in dermatology in the past few years, making it easy to achieve cosmetic goals previously thought to be impossible. Laser hair removal is one type of technology that has become increasingly safer and more accessible.
If you have struggled with unwanted body hair, there is no better time to consider laser hair removal in Tarzana. This non-invasive procedure can reduce hair growth by 10 to 25 percent after just one session, with even more impressive results for multiple sessions. Laser hair removal can target a specific body area, such as the underarms or bikini line, for long-lasting results. At AESTHETICA LA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Yaghoubian can walk you through your options and help you achieve a beautiful, hair-free appearance.
Laser hair removal is a safe and quick procedure to remove unwanted hair without invasive surgery or overnight hospital visits. The laser is essentially a concentrated beam of light, which is safe for all skin types when used by a professional like Dr. Yaghoubian.
This non-invasive medical procedure uses a small beam of light to target the area with unwanted hair growth. During the procedure, the hair pigment (melanin) absorbs the laser’s light and converts it into heat that damages the hair follicles. Hair follicles are tube-shaped sacs within the skin that serve as the source of hair production. By damaging the follicles, hair growth is stunted or delayed in the areas targeted by the laser light.
Common areas targeted for hair removal include:
Because melanin in the hair is the driving force behind the light to heat conversion, laser hair removal is most effective in darker hair types. Those with darker hair contain increased amounts of melanin, making this conversion process more successful with fewer treatments. However, recent advances in laser hair removal have made this procedure more accessible and effective for all skin tones and hair types. Dr. Yaghoubian can consult with you to determine the best strategy for your specific goals and concerns.
Laser hair removal is a popular procedure in Tarzana, as it is a quick and low-risk treatment option. Most people see significant results that last several months or even years. Though laser hair removal may require maintenance treatments for more permanent results, any hair regrowth is typically finer and lighter in color than before the procedure.
Most people begin to see hair shedding or thinning in a matter of days after a laser hair removal at our Tarzana practice. Repeated treatments may also be necessary, as hair growth occurs in cycles. Laser treatments work best when hair follicles are in a stage of new growth.
At AESTHETICA LA, Dr. Yaghoubian strives to provide the safest, most comfortable environment for her laser hair removal patients. Most clients experience results in a few days that last months or even years following the procedure.

In an initial consultation, Dr. Yaghoubian can discuss your cosmetic concerns with you and explain your options for achieving your dream appearance.
