Laser Hair Removal is quick, effective and affordable at the Eastbluff Medical Aesthetics Center with our
Palomar Starlux Pulsed Light System. By disabling the hair at the root itself, Laser Hair Removal offers the ideal alternative to traditional hair removal methods of waxing, chemical hair removers, shaving or electrolysis.
he Eastbluff Medical Aesthetics Center uses the Palomar StarLux system which is effective on dense body hair and particularly well-suited for mid to darker toned skins which easily hyperpigment. The Palomar StarLux system is fast, effective and especially well-know for its safety record with variable wavelengths and power settings to properly treat any skin color efficiently.
The selection of the correct power levels for your skin tone is crucial in obtaining lasting results while preventing the occurrence of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (darkening), hypopigmentation (removal of natural skin pigment), blistering or scarring.

How Laser Hair Removal Works
Lasers and lights work by delivering an intense beam of light that is absorbed by pigment. This light is converted to heat and is absorbed by the cells being targeted, while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. The Palomar StarLux laser system features a patented contact cooling system which helps make the procedure comfortable - even for large areas such as the legs, chest or back.
Can I Expect Total Hair Removal?
Multiple treatments are required for effective hair reduction because the hair follicle must be "active" at the time of treatment and not all follicles are active at the same time. 100% total hair removal is not possible, but an almost complete permanent reduction in hair growth makes this procedure one of the most popular of all non surgical cosmetic treatm
How Long Do Treatments Take?
The Palomar StarLux system is one of the fastest hair reduction systems available today. Treatment time per session depends on the amount of area treated. A lip may take only a few minutes whereas an entire back may take 30 minutes or mor
Does Hair Removal Hurt?
You will feel a stinging sensation when the light is activated. A optional topical local anesthetic may be applied before the procedure to reduce discomfort, but not everyone requires it. The procedure causes a slight charring of existing stubble which simply falls out on its own.
What About Side Effects?
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn, may occur in some people. These effects typically last 24 hours or less and in some instances, slight blistering may occur. This is non-problematic and is managed easily with a topical cream. Burns and scarring can occur if treatment providers are not properly trained. For your protection and safety, it's important to always make sure your treatment is being performed in a well-trained physician-supervised medical office. Lasers and light systems are capable of extensive damage if not used properly. Special training and knowledge is necessary to obtain effective results while protecting your safety. In California, medical lasers can only be operated by licensed medical personnel such as Registered Nurses or Physicians AND have also undergone certification on the laser equipment.
Am I a Candidate for Hair Reduction Treatments?
Hair Reduction treatments work best in lighter skinned, darker haired patients. Because the primary target in hair follicles is melanin pigment (the "color" in skin and hair), less light energy is absorbed by the skin and more by the hair follicle. This does not mean that any skin color will not respond to treatment, just that lighter skin may have faster results because there is not the need for the extra caution required in treating darker skin. Eastbluff Medical Aesthetics Center uses the Palomar StarLux system because it allows treatment of all skin types and color.
Why Does Tanning Slow Hair Reduction?
We recommend that you stop tanning prior to and during your hair reduction treatments. Tanned skin absorbs some of the light energy as it passes through the skin to the hair follicle. To protect your skin from excessive heat buildup, your treatment settings must be set at a lower than optimal level when you have the additional pigment from a tan (natural or from tanning beds). Although we recommends that you refrain from tanning prior to hair reduction treatments, with the Palomar StarLux system, even tanned skin can be treated, although you will need more treatments at lower powers to prevent damage to the skin itsel
What About White or Gray Hair?
Because the pigment in the hair is the target for the light energy, gray or white hair cannot be effectively treated with any current laser or light-based device. You may see some minor growth reduction if the root area still has pigment, but white and gray hair is essentialy invisible to the light emitted by pulsed light and lasers.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Multiple treatments are necessary for best results. Pulsed light energy has its greatest effect on growing, or anagen hair follicles; as the dormant, or telogen hairs become active, usually within 3 weeks to 3 months, some new hair growth will be observed. Usually 4 to 6 treatments over the course of a year will be necessary for satisfactory, long-lasting results. The female face, armpits, and bikini lines are areas which respond fastest to treatments- backs, arms and legs usually need more treatments over time. The scalp is very resistant to treatment.
The Case of Excessive or Abnormal Hair Growth
Excessive hair growth beyond what is considered normal can be caused by the hormonal shifts of puberty, pregnancy or menopause. You may also have unwanted hair growth patterns caused by heredity, medication, hormone replacement therapy, diseases or other reasons.
Hirsutism is a medical condition that is defined as the abnormal and excessive growth of thick dark hair in women where hair is usually minimal or absent. Such male-pattern growth of body hair usually occurs in androgen-stimulated locations, such as the face, chest, and areolae (nipple area). Pulsed light hair reduction successfully manages most all abnormal and excess hair growth issues.
Multiple treatments can prolong the duration of hair loss, but some hair re-growth is possible. Also as you age, unwanted hair growth inevitably continues in additional areas, and you may need repeat treatments in the future.
