Long-Lasting Hair Removal for Women & Men
Unwanted facial or body hair can make you feel self-conscious, and getting rid of it can be messy, time-consuming, expensive, and painful. If you’ve ever had a bikini wax or tried “manscaping,” you know what we mean. It’s no wonder San Diego men and women choose laser hair removal at our La Jolla and Carlsbad medical spas to put an end to perpetual shaving, painful waxing, and smelly bleaches.
Laser treatments can also eliminate common shaving and waxing problems, such as ingrown hairs and irritation. Free from the hassle of unwanted hair, you can finally go sleeveless or shirtless and wear a bikini without hours of “prep” time. With laser hair removal, you can confidently say “never again” to the hassle and discomfort of waxing.

Will Laser Hair Removal Work for Me?
Laser hair removal is an excellent solution for ladies and fellas in and around San Diego. As long as your hair is darker than your skin, you are a candidate for laser hair removal! We offer 3 different laser hair removal platforms at our La Jolla and Carlsbad med spas, enabling us to treat all skin types safely and effectively. The higher the contrast between your skin and hair color (if your skin is very light and your hair is very dark), the better. Also, you’ll need to avoid tanning before treatment.
What Areas Can I Treat With Laser Hair Removal?

During the treatment, a single-color light wave is focused on the treatment area. This light targets the melanin pigment of the hair shaft and the heat disables the hair follicle.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
Most people describe treatment feeling like a small rubber band snap. In larger areas, such as the back, legs, and arms, treatments are sometimes barely felt. For smaller or more sensitive areas, anesthetic options including topical numbing cream and streams of cold air are available.
You deserve a comfortable experience, so La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa now offers PRO-NOX as an add-on during laser treatments and other medical spa services.
What Is PRO-NOX?
PRO-NOX is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in complete control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX takes effect in seconds but wears off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your regular routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX to your treatment at your consultation!
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
Laser treatments can only treat hair that is in the active growth phase. Most patients find that 5 to 7 treatments are needed to hit every growth cycle and remove all the hair in the desired area. After each treatment, the hair that grows back becomes decidedly softer and lighter in color until it virtually disappears.
After completing a treatment series, most people switch to a maintenance schedule with treatments once or twice a year. Keep in mind that hormones, certain medications, and hair growth supplements can affect hair growth levels throughout life.
What Is Laser Hair Removal Recovery Like?
Immediately after treatment, the treated area may appear pink and feel like a mild sunburn. You may also notice a little swelling around each hair follicle. These typically resolve within 24 hours or less. You’ll need to avoid excessive heat, refrain from high-impact exercise until the next day, and cover the treated area with a minimum SPF 30 before sun exposure.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost in San Diego?
At our La Jolla and Carlsbad med spas, laser hair removal cost typically ranges from $100 to $3,000 depending on the size and number of treatment areas. Get all the info you need about costs on our pricing page.
