Laser Hair Reduction in Orange County, CA
Ditch the razor for the laser
Seaside is proud to offer Laser Hair Reduction with Bare HR. Bare HR is the fastest laser hair removal device on the market with the versatility to safely and effectively treat patients of all skin types, any time of year, anywhere on the body.
Bare HR delivers gentle pulses of laser energy into the skin that specifically target hair destroying it at the follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Since hair grows in multiple stages, a series of treatments will be needed. Patients can expect to see a gradual reduction in the amount of hair as well as hair thickness after each session.

Laser Hair Removal Frequently asked questions
We request that you shave any areas you want treated the morning of or 24 hours before treatment. Surface hair increases the risk of a burn and uses laser energy that will then not go to the root of the hair follicle. Make sure that you do not bleach, wax, pluck, or use electrolysis for 6 weeks prior to treatment.
Additionally please note, that we do not treat tanned skin. Increased melanin (pigment) in the skin decreases the effectiveness of treatment and also makes it more likely that the patient will experience hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, or blistering from the laser treatment. This includes sunless tanning products and sprays.
The laser works best on dark hair. It does not work well on blond, gray, red, or white hair because it does not absorb laser energy due to lack of pigment. We can attempt to treat light hair, however, we often recommend doing a test spot first.
You’ll start to see results after 1 session, however it will take between 5-8 treatments to experience an 80-90% reduction in hair.
Most areas require 5-8 treatments and most patients experience an 80-90 % reduction in the amount of hair.

The skin will have some erythema (redness), and the hair follicles will swell, looking like goose bumps for approximately 1-2 hours, and up to a couple of days in some patients.
It may be anywhere from 3 weeks to 4 months before any regrowth is observed. After each treatment some hair (approximately 20-30 %) will not regrow.
