Laser Hair Removal
You don’t have to live with unwanted hair on your body or face. Laser hair removal treatments at Rejuvené in Chico, Yuba City, and Oroville, CA, significantly reduce hair growth with long-lasting results. Using proven technology, a licensed registered nurse performs your treatment under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist, ensuring it’s safe and effective.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser wavelengths delivered during the treatment target melanin (pigment) in the hair’s shafts. The heat energy is then transmitted to the follicle, destroying it without damaging the skin. Because hair grows in cycles and the laser can only damage follicles during the active growth phase, multiple treatment sessions scheduled several weeks apart are needed to produce the best results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Both women and men can benefit from laser hair removal treatments. Because the laser beam targets the pigment in hair, patients who see the best results have dark and coarse hair and lighter skin. Improvements in laser technology have made it possible to treat people with lighter hair or darker skin with good results. However, if you have fine, blonde, or red hair, other types of treatments, such as waxing, may be more appropriate. We offer waxing treatments by appointment.
Laser hair removal works on most areas of the body and face, including:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
Treatment times and the number of sessions depend on the targeted area (or areas), the amount of hair, and your goals.
“After 4 treatments of hair removal, I am very pleased with my results. The entire staff was friendly, professional, and sensitive to my needs. The treatment rooms convey a feeling of privacy and relaxation. I am a client for life!”

What Happens During a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Before starting the procedure, we have patients wear protective eye shields and trim the hair in the treatment area. Most patients tolerate the procedure well with little discomfort; many describe the feeling as comparable to a rubber band snapping the skin. If desired, you can elect to have a numbing cream applied about 45 minutes before the treatment.
