Unwanted hair on the face and body can pose a wide range of problems for men and women. The latest hair reduction techniques offer an opportunity to remove hair from virtually anywhere with long-lasting results. The Palomar StarLux light-based hair removal system can achieve dramatic results for patients of many skin tones and types. Our skilled medical team performs this treatment at our state-of-the-art plastic surgery center, where we can determine the ideal approach for your needs and goals.
What Is Palomar StarLux™ Hair Removal?
The Palomar StarLux system uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to disrupt the roots of the treated hairs to reduce regrowth. Our IPL system offers a wide array of benefits, including skin rejuvenation and hair removal. By using the ideal light wavelengths for your needs, the IPL system can help provide the results you are looking for. Furthermore, StarLux IPL hair removal can be used on virtually any area of the face and body on patients with light to moderate skin tones.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Generally speaking, laser and light-based hair removal treatments are designed to disrupt or destroy targeted hair follicles to slow or halt hair growth. This can be achieved without damage to the surrounding tissue. Most patients will require between six and 10 sessions to arrive at their desired outcome, after which additional retreatment may not be necessary to maintain the results. It’s important to choose the right method of hair removal for your hair type, skin tone, and desired effect for the optimal experience. We can help you determine if the Palomar StarLux or another technique is right for you.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?
One of the many benefits of the StarLux IPL hair removal system is its ability to address unwanted hair in virtually any location, including large regions and small, intimate spots. The most popular locations to treat include:
- Upper Lip
- Side Burns
- Under Arms
- Bikini Line

How Many Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatment sessions you will need depends on the size of the area being treated, the type of hair you have, and your skin type. Everyone responds a little differently, but most individuals require between six and 10 total treatments for best results. We will customize a program based on your needs and goals during your initial consultation, including the expected number of sessions required.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The price of laser hair removal, as well as hair removal using the StarLux system, ranges depending on how many areas you would like treated, how big the areas are, and how many sessions you would like to have. Broadly speaking, hair removal can cost $50 and up, and we offer special packages to help keep costs down. When we develop your personalized program, we will go over the anticipated cost of your procedure. We welcome a wide range of payment options, including cosmetic enhancement financing, and we can provide advice and guidance on the ideal method for you.
