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.

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.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is safe when offered by a qualified technician or provider. Dr. Kelishadi has years of experience performing laser treatments with top-of-the-line technology to ensure the safety of patients. Our team will assess your treatment area and recommend the best course of action for your specific needs.

How long does laser hair removal last?

Laser hair removal is a long-term solution for unwanted hair and provides semi-permanent results. Our laser targets the hair follicle directly, preventing it from producing new hair. However, some patients at SSK Plastic Surgery may experience a small amount of regrowth in treated areas, usually due to hormones or other factors.

How long does a laser hair removal session last?

The length of each session depends on the size of the areas being treated. Our Newport Beach team typically completes treatments in less than an hour. Remember to set aside enough time for set-up, treatment, and recovery after your session. We recommend scheduling your appointment when you have time to relax afterward and let your skin recover.
