What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is performed using the Palomar Icon™ XD Aesthetic System. It is a highly advanced, FDA-approved laser technology that offers long-lasting results for those who want smooth, hair-free skin. The Palomar Icon™ laser can be used on both the face and body and is suitable for all skin types.


Why should I undergo a laser hair removal procedure?

Unwanted hair growth can be resolved with shaving, waxing, and various other methods. But these provide temporary results, which require weekly or monthly sessions (or more frequently for shaving) to ensure smooth skin. Some of these methods can also result in redness, irritation, and possible skin discoloration. Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicles without damaging the skin, producing superior results when compared to conventional methods of laser hair removal in West Hollywood.

Why choose Dr. Sedgh for your laser hair removal procedure in West Hollywood?

While the Palomar Icon™ XD laser is an entirely safe, FDA-approved treatment, it is still essential to have it performed by a licensed professional to ensure the best possible outcome.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal delivers a gradual decrease in hair thickness and an overall decline in hair growth with each session. This virtually pain-free treatment also provides significant improvement in surface irregularities and skin discoloration, resulting in smooth, even-toned skin.

How will I know if laser hair removal is right for me?

When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Sedgh will explain the procedure so you know what to expect before you undergo treatment. He will also assess your skin and areas of concern to determine the number of sessions required to achieve your desired results. Multiple sessions are often necessary for complete hair removal, so the doctor will likely schedule several treatment sessions over the next few months.

How does the face and body hair removal procedure work?

The Palomar Icon™ XD Aesthetic System makes use of a Skintel Melanin Reader. This state-of-the-art feature allows Dr. Sedgh to assess the average melanin density of your skin, which helps determine the corrects settings for you. The assessment is usually done during your consultation, although it can also be done immediately before treatment. Depending on the results of your skin evaluation and the size and location of your target area, Dr. Sedgh will use one of the following Palomar Icon handpieces:

What should I expect during the procedure?

Before treatment begins, a topical anesthetic gel will be applied to numb the target area and keep you relatively comfortable throughout the session. Once the area is numbed, which should take at least 15 minutes, you will be asked to wear special safety glasses. The glasses will protect you from the pulses of light during the treatment. Dr. Sedgh will then perform the treatment by aiming the laser at small sections of the skin until the entire target area has been treated.

Is there a lengthy recovery period?

Our West Hollywood laser hair removal is a simple outpatient treatment, performed at our luxurious office in less than an hour. Immediately after the session, a special cooling serum will be applied to the target area to help soothe and calm the skin.

A layer of sunscreen will also be applied to protect the area from sun exposure. You may notice some redness, dry patches, and some very mild discomfort on the treated area after treatment, but these should subside within the next few days.

How long before I see the results of my laser hair removal procedure?

Since the laser also offers skin-enhancing effects, you can expect the target area to become clearer and smoother within two to three weeks.

Will I need additional treatment?

Once you have completed the recommended number of treatment sessions, Dr. Sedgh will then assess the level of hair regrowth and skin improvement in the target area. If needed, he may recommend further sessions to help you achieve completely smooth, hair-free skin.
