Laser Hair

A small amount of hair never hurt anyone, but the smooth-skinned, hairless look is definitely in vogue. Shaving and waxing are common methods for getting velvety, smooth skin, but the hair grows back quickly and, in the worst cases, itchy or prickly. Savvy Aesthetics in Bell, California, offers laser hair removal as a long-lasting alternative to razors and waxes.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an alternative to shaving and waxing that allows you to enjoy your sleek skin for months on end rather than a few days or weeks. Because of this, laser hair removal is a cheaper option in the long-term than constantly buying razors or frequently getting painful waxes. 


Laser hair removal works to remove the unwanted hair on your legs, stomach, arms, bikini line, or anywhere else that you wish you didn’t grow it. It isn’t recommended for use on your eyebrows because of the risk of damage to your eyes.

How does laser hair removal work?

The Savvy team offers the latest systems in laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works by using a high-intensity laser to heat and burn your hair follicles so that they stop growing and the hair falls off. The Lumines® Splendor X is a brand new system that uses two types of lasers to quickly and effectively remove the hair from the desired area evenly and with little chance of skin irritation, even if you have a dark complexion. Other available systems include:


  • Lumines LightSheer DUET

  • Lumines LightSheer Desire

  • Lumines LightSheer Desire Light


After reviewing your goals with laser hair removal, the Savvy team helps you determine which system will work best for you.


Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

With today’s ever-evolving technologies, nearly anyone is a candidate for laser hair removal. However, the treatment may be especially effective for you if:


  • Your hair color is darker than your skin

  • You don’t have sensitive skin

  • You’re diligent with care instructions

  • You don’t have tattoos where you grow unwanted hair


The Savvy team can answer your questions about the treatment and, after an initial examination, determine that the treatment is a good fit for you. 

What are the risks of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal comes with some risks and possible side effects that you’ll need to be aware of before you commit to treatment. 


Common side effects include:


  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Skin color changes

  • Blistering

  • Skin texture changes


  • If you tan before the procedure, you’ll be at a higher risk of developing negative side effects from the treatment since pigmented skin tends to absorb the heat from the laser more. If you have concerns about the risks, the Savvy team answers all of your questions during your consultation before the procedure.


  • If you love the hairless look but despise constantly purchasing razor cartridges or paying for painful waxes, laser hair removal may be the alternative you’re looking for. Call or schedule an appointment online at Savvy Aesthetics to learn more about laser hair removal today.
