Laser Hair Reduction is a simple process performed by Dr. Heidari and our licensed and certified technicians. Pulses of light emitted by the laser attack the hair and the follicle, destroying the hair at the root and preventing it from growing back. At our Beverly Hills and Upland, CA, locations, Dr. Heidari uses the latest in Laser Hair Reduction and light-based techniques with a process called ClearScan1064. ClearScan employs laser energy that can selectively target melanin in the hair follicles. This powerful laser treats all skin types for the safest and most permanent hair reduction results.

It can be a source of considerable embarrassment, limiting people’s activities and lifestyles. For some, the problem is even more severe.

Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser Hair Reduction is an effective treatment for many prospects, both men and women. The treatment results in Beverly Hills and Upland vary on different factors for each kind of patient. The best candidates for this type of hair reduction are those with more pale skin and dark hair. Light skin and dark hair contrast allows melanin to be easily targeted. Blonde, fine hairs are much more difficult to be targeted by lasers. Lighter hair and red hair may respond better to intense pulse light hair reduction (BBL).

Lighter-skinned individuals can benefit from BBL or the 1064 laser for hair reduction, depending on the density, color, and thickness of the hair. Dr. Heidari specifically uses the 1064 laser for dark-skinned individuals such as those of Black, Hispanic, Indian, and Asian descent. This laser is very safe, specific, and effective. These topics can be discussed further with Dr. Heidari to see if Laser Hair Reduction, and which kind, is the best option for you.
