What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular elective treatments in the United States. It is an effective way for the long-term reduction or removal of unwanted hair on the body in areas, such as the legs, back, arms, face, chest, armpits, and bikini area. This treatment typically leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces longer-lasting results compared to other common hair removal options. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA performs effective and safe laser hair removal services for both women and men with the Venus Velocity™ system by Venus Concept.
Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"Dr. Kelishadi is absolutely amazing! I went in for micro needling and I'm not even kidding... it was completely painless. And not the kind of "painless" that waxing and laser hair removal ads say where it actually hurts like crazy... It was actually PAINLESS. His attention to detail was great, and I was able to take headshots 6 days later with no redness whatsoever. I've been getting tons of comments that I look visibly several years younger. I have the best skin right now that I've ever had. I couldn't recommend him enough!"- K.S. / Yelp / Aug 11, 2017
"I will start by saying that SSK is the place where professionalism is beyond imagination! My wife and I are both extremely pleased with the level of service and attention to detail every step of the way. I came with a need for laser hair removal and Dr. Kelishadi’s staff explained everything from A-Z with no questions left out. I’ve completed all the sessions they recommended, and the results are simply mind blowing! It helps me stay even more active with sports and not worry about ingrown hairs due to sweating. My wife on the other hand had breast revision surgery. Dr. Kelishadi is not just a top echelon plastic surgeon but also a Picasso of his trade . The results speak for themselves, absolute perfection!I wanted to leave this review here so people can get a better idea from a real client with real experience. If you’re looking for comprehensive cosmetic services, then look no further; this is your one stop shop! I would highly recommend this place to everyone!"- H.M. / Yelp / Sep 10, 2021
"I’ve been going here for laser hair removal and after my first treatment I was blown away with the results. Truly impressive. I maybe had to shave once a week. I’m so excited to see my final results. Iwork with Krystal. She is professional and kind. She takes time to explain everything. This office offers so many wonderful treatments beyond plastic surgery. I highly recommend them."- D.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2021
"I saw Krystal for lazer hair removal. It was a great price and the pain was almost non existent. I would call it a discomfort. Then we followed up with some more recommendations. I have had several comments on how amazing my skin looked. After social isolation and not engaging in self care, Krystal brought a balance of much needed self care that I was looking for."- L.R. / Yelp / May 02, 2022
"SSK Plastic surgery is the best plastic surgeons office in OC. Their entire staff is amazing and is very responsive. Jolene is their injector there and is amazing. I have gotten Botox, filler, and a few laser treatments from her and she is amazing. She always preps you on what exactly to expect, how it will feel, the results and she always follows up with you every day after. At SSK they really put their patients health and concerns first! Dr. K always comes in before the procedure and lets you know what to expect and sort of walks you through the process to ensure you know you are in good hands. He has some of the most talented people working at SSK! Jolene is also the sweetest person ever and will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process :)"- S.C. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
Am I A Good Candidate?
Hair removal with a laser is a safe treatment that is suitable for many patients. During your consultation, you will discuss your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal techniques (shaving, waxing, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in good, overall physical health
How does it work?
SSK Plastic Surgery uses the effective Venus Velocity system by Venus Concept for quick and comfortable hair removal of the face and body. Their state-of-the-art laser technology takes the stress out of hair removal with comfortable treatments. At your appointment, you will lie in one of our treatment rooms as the area of skin is cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During the procedure, a technician will stretch out the area to provide a clear path between the hair follicle root and the laser.
The laser beam will target and destroy the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to give the treated areas time to recover. It also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The revolutionary technology we use at SSK Plastic Surgery is able to target only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the treated area.
What should I Expect after?
Although laser hair removal is relatively gentle, your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn since lasers are used. When you leave our office, you will be able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to refrain from exercise or extended time outdoors for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. When you get home after your treatment, we suggest soothing creams or cold packs to alleviate any mild discomfort.
