LASER HAIR REMOVAL

The bad news is having hair you don’t want… in places you don’t want it.

The good news is that hair removal treatment options are readily available to you!

Laser hair removal is a popular treatment for unwanted hair removal.

As you may have heard, the best results for laser hair removal are achieved on dark hairs against a fair skin background.  However, other factors influence the treatment process.

It’s worth knowing that, with laser hair removal, timing is everything: to be effective the hair has to be in the right stage of its growth cycle (known as anagen). This is when the hair contains an abundance of melanin, which is what lasers are trying to target in an effort to disable that hair follicle. So, to achieve long term results, the laser must treat the hair in the anagen stage of hair growth. A series of laser hair removal treatments is needed to reach all of your hairs during this cycle, because your hair is not on the same cycle, each hair follicle cycles independently. (You should probably make sure you like talking to the person who’s doing your laser hair removal, you’ll be with them for a little while!)

Jokes aside: before ever starting treatment for excess unwanted hair, it is important to have a qualified medical evaluation. This is because unwanted hairs can be associated with conditions you aren’t even thinking about: certain tumors and hormonal imbalances, for example.  And removing the hair does not remove that important underlying problem.  Still not convinced?  If you have an underlying health condition that is not addressed, it is possible that a hair removal treatment you receive with lasers will simply not be effective.

I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing...

I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work...

~J.A. Los Angeles

Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!

~C.E. Los Angeles

Whereever Dr. Kormeili goes, my mom and I follow her. I highly recommend her. My visits are always a great experience.

I started seeing the sad signs of aging. I come all the way from Italy, 3 times a year to get Botox, fillers… and of course my VI Peels. I have seen a huge difference. Dr. Kormeili is the best! I love her!!!

~M. I., Italy

I had multiple warts on my hands and legs for the past 5 years. It was just something I learned to live with. I moved so sunny Los Angeles and decided it was time to take care of this embarrassing problem. I had appt’s with a few dermatologists, but once I found Dr. Kormeili I knew I wanted her to treat me...

Dr. Kormeili is a remarkable person and an amazing doctor. She’s exact, focused and thorough, and treats you like one of the family. The results of my treatments were beyond my expectations.

~C.S., Santa Monica

I had sun damaged skin with several sun spots on my face. My entire attention was on my face, and I worried what people were thinking when they looked at me. I’m a vice president in banking and image is very important especially in the leadership role I am in. I saw Dr. Kormeili 4 months ago...

~M.M., Torrence

I absolutely love this Dr. She is so honest. My skin looks great and I feel so happy with her service and recommendations.

~M.M. Santa Monica

I was working a lot and very stressed out. One day I looked up in the mirror and I had look like I had aged about 10 years and as a woman we like to stay looking young. So a friend referred me to Dr. Kormeili for a little Botox and fillers. She was great! She took care of everything that was bothering me and then some...

~D.E., Whittier

How can someone be sad around Dr. Kormeili? She is a burst of sunshine but most of all she cares about her patients. Dr. Kormeili knew and worked on my husband before he recently passed away. He would rave about her care and skill when he had work on his face done by her. I went to Dr. Kormeili after my husband passed away...

~M. I., Italy

I had been taking antibiotic medicines for over 2 years to help control my acne; once I was prescribed Accutane in less than 3 months my face was completely gone. Of course before taking Accutane I was constantly aware of my skin, always trying to find ways to hide it and sometimes it got so hard I didn’t even want to go to school....

~C.J., Los Angeles

SHE IS THE BEST! Considerate, compassionate and thoroughly professional.

~V.L. Santa Monica

Sexual intercourse is such an integral part of a happy marriage. After months of “grin and bear it” with vaginal irritation, I mentioned my problem of having intercourse to my primary care doctor and then to my OBGYN. The good news was that the biopsy was not cancerous, however the bad news was that it was lichen...
