Life-Changing Results

Laser Hair Removal

Our MedSpa team at the BioSpa in Newport Beach is ready to help you achieve your cosmetic goals with laser hair removal. If you’re sick of painful waxing, tweezing, or results from shaving that only last a few days, get ready to experience a whole new world of freedom with laser hair removal.


What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an effective non-invasive body hair reduction method that uses light energy to eliminate unwanted hair in different areas of the body. This hair removal technology can treat the face, underarms, back, shoulders, stomach, legs, bikini area, and more. In fact, we can treat virtually any area of the body! It is an excellent alternative for those who are tired of waxing, plucking, shaving, and using hair removal creams, and it delivers much longer-lasting results.

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and explain your laser hair removal options. We will be honest about the benefits and any potential cons to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

Learn More About Laser Hair Removal

During your hair reduction session at BioSpa, your provider will use a laser device that delivers concentrated light beams to the targeted hair follicles. The pigment or melanin in your hair absorbs the heat from the laser, which damages the hair follicles and hair bulbs. This procedure not only removes hair but also delays hair growth. Moreover, your hair usually grows back lighter and thinner after treatment.

To prepare for your hair removal session, we recommend you shave the day before your laser treatment. Before your hair reduction, your provider will clean the treatment areas and apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort.

At BioSpa, we offer the following laser hair removal techniques that will make your unwanted hair a concern of the past:

Gentlemax Pro®

Candela’s Gentlemax Pro® is a dual wavelength device that uses a powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser to deliver fast and excellent results. This gentle and effective laser can treat several areas of your body and can also treat vascular and pigmented lesions. Additionally, it is safe for all skin types.

Like many other laser hair removal treatments, the hair pigment absorbs the devices’ laser energy, destroying the hair follicles and delaying future growth. The Candela Gentlemax Pro® also uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device® to cool the treatment areas while the device delivers pulses of heat, maximizing your comfort.


miraSmooth™ is an FDA-cleared device that can reduce underarm hair, odor, and excessive sweat. This non-surgical treatment utilizes microwave energy to deliver heat deep within the skin, reaching and destroying the hair roots. It removes around 70% of unwanted underarm hair after only one treatment.

The miraSmooth treatment offers a uniquely “color blind” solution. It is effective at treating hair of any color, including blonde, white, and gray hair. This sets miraSmooth apart from other laser hair removal options. Virtually any skin color and hair color combination can be treated with miraSmooth technology.

With this procedure, you may experience some swelling and soreness. The miraSmooth hair reduction method takes about an hour to complete.

Typically, laser hair removal does not require downtime, and you may resume your everyday activities right after treatment if you feel ready. After your laser hair removal session at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery’s premier MedSpa, you may notice some redness, bumps, or swelling. However, these symptoms are normal and usually only last a few hours or days after the treatment. You may apply a cold compress or use prescription creams as directed by your provider to reduce any discomfort.

You should avoid sun exposure and tanning treatments for about two weeks before and after hair removal treatments. If you do spend time outside, make sure to wear sunscreen to protect your skin.

Laser hair removal results are not immediate, as it can take one to two weeks for your unwanted hair to fall out. Most patients need repeat treatments to achieve the best results. With the Gentlemax Pro®, you will likely need a series of six treatments for optimal results. With miraSmooth, two treatments are typically recommended for the underarms.

Since laser hair removal can only treat growing hair follicles, your following treatments will focus on targeting the hair follicles that were at their resting phase during your initial treatment. You may also need occasional maintenance treatments to keep your results. 

Ideal candidates for laser hair removal are healthy and have realistic expectations for the treatment. Patients with darker hair color see the greatest success with Gentlemax Pro®, and patients with hair of any color can enjoy the benefits of miraSmooth for underarm hair elimination.

The cost of laser hair removal will vary depending on your geographic location, your provider’s experience, and your unique treatment plan. On average, laser hair removal in the United States costs $389.

This is only a rough estimate, however. Several factors will influence your actual cost, such as which laser hair removal technique is used, how large the treatment area is, and how many sessions are needed to achieve your desired results. For an accurate cost estimate, consult with one of our experienced providers at BioSpa in Newport Beach.

Additionally, we’re happy to discuss the various financing options we offer to help you manage the costs of your laser hair removal treatments with affordable monthly payments.
