Innovative technology at work in laser clinics in Westlake Village CA

For years, women have endured shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams to remove hair on their face, legs, and underarms. Men have struggled with unreachable hair on their backs and chest hair that is too thick. Their only alternative was electrolysis, which can be painful, discolor the skin, and take up to 30 sessions to complete.

Now, the battle with unwanted hair can be a thing of the past; the popularity, and effectiveness of laser hair removal is increasing at an incredible rate. Patients seek this amazing treatment for a number of reasons, shaving leaves bumps, waxing is extremely uncomfortable, and depilatory creams are unpredictable and can cause adverse reactions.

Laser hair removal is a frequently requested treatment at the practice of Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, in Westlake Village, CA. Not just a laser clinic, it is a complete Skin Care Centre offering an array of aesthetic and medical services from microdermabrasion’s to Mohs surgery for skin cancer. For laser hair removal, we use the Cutera CoolGlide® Laser Hair Removal system.

The Cutera system is known for safe, comfortable, effective hair removal for all skin types whether they are light, dark, or suntanned. Due to the unique CoolGlide technology, the treatment is extremely comfortable; at the most, some patients may feel a slight stinging or pinching sensation. For these patients, a topical anesthetic can reduce or eliminate the sensation.

Cutera uses a hand piece that emits intense pulsing beams of light, while cooling and soothing the skin simultaneously, which results in an effective but comfortable treatment. The energy works directly on the hair follicle, simply passing through the skin. The heat of the beams damage hair follicles, inhibiting future growth and achieving permanent hair reduction.

Treatment may be completed in as little as 10 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. On average, just three to six sessions are needed, with yearly touchups, unlike never ending shaving, waxing, or creams, or the 30 sessions typically needed for effective electrolysis treatment.

This is an exciting era for patients who have unwanted hair. Thanks to the marvelous Cutera technology, it can now be removed quickly, comfortably, effectively, and permanently! To discover the wonderful options that are available to address all of your concerns about your skin, call 805-379-3376 and schedule an appointment today.

Have been going to Dr. Panagotacos for years and she is always on top of her game. Watches me like a hawk and catches any new possible melanomas I might have. Also when making those cuts they heal beautifully and hardly leave a mark. The office is beautiful and very friendly and almost always on time with their appointments.
