Laser Hair Removal | La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic In San Diego



Waxing and shaving may temporarily eliminate unwanted hair, but these techniques are less than ideal. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we offer laser hair removal for men and women in San Diego, Encinitas, La Mesa, El Cajon, and surrounding areas of California.


What is a Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair treatments can be applied to any area of the face and body for permanent hair reduction. The laser energy is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair follicle and converted to heat. The heat injures the hair follicle preventing its ability to produce hair.

SPLENDOR X is unlike any other hair removal system in the world. It is the first Nd: YAG and Alexandrite laser system to be powered by BLEND X™ technology for unprecedented power, speed, versatility, and coverage rate. 

Most laser hair removal technologies on the market use one of two wavelengths to target the hair follicle:

  • The Alexandrite wavelength is at 755 nm, which is ideal for treating skin tones 1, 2, and 3 (fair and light skin tones). It is highly absorbed in melanin and is therefore not safe for use on darker skin tones.
  • The Nd: YAG wavelength at 1064 nm, which is ideal for treating skin tones 4, 5, and 6 (4 being tanned skin and 5 and 6 darker skin tones) as the absorption by melanin is much lower than with the Alexandrite wavelength. This wavelength is highly absorbed in oxyhemoglobin, which affects the blood supply to the hair follicle.

To solve these challenges, Lumenis introduced BLEND X technology. This unique technology is the first of its kind to synchronize Alexandrite (755nm) and Nd: YAG (1064nm) wavelengths to fire with adjustable proportions. With this technology, each pulse can be BLEND X’ed when fired with varying proportions to tailor treatment and customized to fit the patient’s specific skin type, hair color, and thickness for the most effective treatment.

BLEND X technology is used to power the SPLENDOR X solid-state laser device. With this powerful, fast, and versatile device, treatment providers can synchronize Alexandrite and Nd: YAG wavelengths to customize treatment options for patients with different skin and hair type combinations. Bilateral laser emission of Nd: YAG (1064nm) and Alexandrite (755nm) wavelengths, synchronized adjustable proportions. Square shape spot sizes For uniform skin coverage, eliminating overlap and hotspots. Fast treatments Large spot size and rapid repetition rate. Treatment versatility and skin solutions Wrinkle reduction, vascular and pigmented lesions

Laser hair removal is an effective solution for unwanted hair. If you are uncomfortable with hair on your neck, face, and body then it’s time to take some action. The days of tweezing, waxing, depilatories, and electrolysis are gone.  Here are some of the more common areas that we can treat:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Bikini
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Face
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • And More!

What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

There are so many benefits that our La Jolla and San Diego Laser Hair Removal patients have been able to enjoy. Unlike shaving, waxing, depilatories, and tweezing, laser hair removal provides a long-term growth delay and permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal is fast and effective. Where electrolysis treats a single hair at a time, laser hair removal can cover large areas rapidly.


Who are the best candidates for Laser Hair Removal?

The SPLENDOR X is safe and effective on all skin types and tanned skin. Because it is absorbed by melanin, laser hair removal is most effective on darker hair. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we believe that the best candidates for Laser Hair Removal in the San Diego and La Jolla area are those with the following characteristics:

  • Have darker hair follicles and lighter skin
  • Maintains positive and realistic goals from their treatment
  • Tired of the time it takes to shave

If you have lighter hair or darker skin, the treatment may not work best for you. It does not mean that you are unable to get the procedure, just that it may require more sessions and may not produce the best results. When you come in for your consultation and get an evaluation, the technician will be able to inform you of your candidacy for Laser Hair Removal.

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting Laser Hair Removal in La Jolla and the surrounding San Diego area is to schedule a consultation at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with one of our certified laser technicians. They will examine the area you’re looking to have the hair removed and you will be able to ask any questions you may have about the treatment. After everything is discussed, a treatment plan will be created for you and if you agree with it, you will be able to have your first laser treatment performed. In some cases, we may have you wait for better circumstances before getting the treatment. If this is the case, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you schedule the right day and time that works best for you. 

To get your Laser Hair Removal performed sooner than later, we strongly recommend avoiding any tanning or sun for at least six weeks before your treatment. The laser targets the hair follicle, so the greater the contrast between your hair and your skin, the better the results. It will also be recommended that you shave the day before your treatment so that the laser will be able to treat the root of the follicle more easily.


What to expect on the day of a Laser Hair Removal treatment

During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat the hair and significantly impede the hair follicle’s ability to re-grow. This high-tech process treats numerous hair follicles at a time. Therefore, we can treat even the largest areas of the body both quickly and effectively. An important part of the procedure is the cooling of the skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root.

Depending on the area to be treated, laser hair removal can take only a few minutes or over an hour. The most commonly treated areas, bikini line, upper lip, chin, and underarms typically require less than 20 minutes for treatment.

Laser Hair Removal recovery

After your treatment, you will be able to go about your day, but you will need to do your best to protect your skin from any direct sunlight. Your skin will also be reddened and slightly swollen after your treatment, and you may experience a mild level of pain for an hour or so you can use an ice pack to alleviate these post-treatment feelings. Your hair grows in different phases, so you will need to return for more sessions to eliminate the follicles from the area. On average, it takes about eight sessions spaced apart every four to six weeks.

How much does Laser Hair Removal cost in La Jolla & San Diego, CA?

The cost of Laser Hair Removal in La Jolla & San Diego is based on several different factors, including the number of sessions you need and the surface area of the hair being removed. After coming in for your consultation and your customized treatment plan is made, our Patient Coordinator will be able to give you a breakdown of the entire cost of your treatment.
