Laser Hair Removal (Clear and Brilliant, Venus Versa, InMode) – Las Vegas, NV*

71 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Traditional methods of hair removal (shaving, waxing, and depilatory treatments) are time consuming, uncomfortable, and only give temporary results. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, a plastic surgeon in Las Vegas, offers laser hair removal for safe, effective hair removal. The laser system delivers a precise and controlled pulse of energy that only affects the hair follicle. Some patients may need multiple sessions based on their individual hair growth rate and the thickness of their hair. Laser hair removal can be used on the face, legs, face, and other common areas and it is appropriate for men and women who want to save themselves the time and trouble of other hair removal methods.

OUr Technologies

There are numerous laser technologies on the market for safe and effective hair removal. Dr. Khorsandi spares no expense to invest in the latest and greatest lasers for faster, more effective hair removal treatments. Currently, VIP Plastic Surgery offers Las Vegas patients the following laser treatments for a smoother, hairless skin appearance:

  • Clear and Brilliant Pelo
  • Venus Versa using Smart Pulse™ technology
  • InMode Diolaze
  • Cynosure Elite MPX

During your initial consultation, your hair will be assessed so that the right laser can be chosen for your unique hair removal needs. Our lasers typically offer various wavelengths, which will vary according to the patient's skin tone, hair type, hair thickness, texture, and the amount of hair being removed. 

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

During laser hair removal, it is common for multiple treatments to be done to ensure that the hair follicles are completely destroyed. At any given time, a certain number of hairs are in a resting phase, rather than a growth phase. Because the laser treatment is not effective on the hair follicles that are not actively growing, multiple sessions are needed. On average, it takes about 3 to 5 treatments to disable new hair growth. These sessions are spaced between 3 or 4 weeks to make sure the area has already recovered from the previous session. During the procedure, the skin is stretched slightly so that the laser can precisely target the hair follicle roots. When this happens, the follicle absorbs the heat and ultimately falls off and stops re-growing.

What to Expect

Because of the vacuum, patients will feel slight pressure on the area that is being treated. The laser beam can slightly sting, but cool temperatures will be applied between pulses to help with the patient’s discomfort. The application of cold blast also minimizes side effects high temperatures may cause. Sessions may last from 15 minutes up to an hour for larger areas, such as the back. Although patients can resume normal activity after treatment, the treated area will look and feel similar to a sunburn. Patients should avoid exercise for about 24 hours to allow the skin to calm, and sun exposure should be avoided during treatment.

Expected Cost

There is no standard cost for laser hair removal as the fees vary depending on a number of factors, including the size of the area being treated and the amount of hair to be removed. In addition, costs will also vary depending on the laser technology utilized, as well as the number of sessions required to attain the desired results. The estimated fee is around $250 per session and a minimum of 3 sessions is often required.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Best Candidate?

Individuals with light skin and dark hair generally are the best candidates for laser hair removal. That being said, individuals with varying skin tones and hair color can also be considered for this treatment, but in order for the laser to “find” the hair and effectively treat it, it has to be able to “see” it. Therefore, those with light skin and very light blonde hair may not be the best candidates for this procedure.

Can I Only Have 1 Session?

The series of treatments is designed to ensure that all hair growth is permanently suppressed. There will be significant reduction, but not all hair follicles are destroyed in the initial session and some may continue to grow. The additional sessions ensure that the remaining growing hairs will also be terminated. 

How Long Is Recovery?

There is no downtime following laser hair removal and patients can usually resume their normal routine. There will be tingling and slight redness on the treated area that subsides after a few hours. Afterwards, the skin may look and feel like it’s sunburnt. Cooling creams or ice packs may provide relief to the burnt feeling. Sun exposure must be limited several weeks before and after treatment.

Is This Long Lasting?

Once the follicle is removed, the hair cannot regrow. However, with a single treatment, not all follicles are destroyed and those that survive normally will still grow hair. This is the reason why follow-up treatments are required to completely remove all growing hair the initial treatment missed.
