San Diego Laser Hair Removal
Excessive hair growth can be an embarrassing condition for both San Diego men and women. The weather in southern California allows for shorts and sleeveless shirts year round.
For several years the sole option was ineffective creams, shaving, painful waxing, or electrolysis.
San Diego plastic surgeon Charles Sarosy uses a low power laser to softly remove unwished-for hair. Laser treatments will leave your skin smooth and hair free. Perfect for lying on the beach in Coronado or Pacific Beach.
Treatments can be performed on all types of skin but works best on lighter skin and darker hair color. We utilize the Light Sheer Duet laser by Lumenis, which is the gold standard in hair removing technology.
