Indian Well, CA (PRWEB) July 02, 2011
A heightened interest in laser hair removal in Southern California has been reported by Dr. Richard Foxx, medical director and founder of The Medical and Skin Spa (http://www.medicalandskinspa.com) in Indian Wells. According to Dr. Foxx, warmer weather tends to result in increased popularity for hair removal procedures.
"People want to feel confident and comfortable about their appearance during the summer, because they are wearing more revealing clothes such as swimsuits or shorts," Dr. Foxx says. "That's why the interest in cosmetic treatments like laser hair removal or BOTOX® Cosmetic in Southern California usually increases during this time."
Dr. Foxx uses the CoolGlide® Laser made by Cutera® at his medical spa for hair removal procedures. This highly sophisticated laser equipment is FDA-approved and can treat a variety of skin tones. In contrast to many other lasers, CoolGlide is effective on all parts of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. In addition, it can be used on more sensitive areas, such as the bikini line. Each session lasts between a few minutes to an hour or two, depending on the size of the area being treated. Usually a series of treatments are needed to provide the best results, but once complete, the effects can be permanent.
"The CoolGlide laser that we offer at The Medical and Skin Spa is undoubtedly one of the most effective methods of permanent hair reduction available," Dr. Foxx notes. "It's a simple, comfortable procedure that requires no anesthesia, no downtime, and has minimal side effects."
In addition to being well-known for his advanced laser treatments, Dr. Foxx is also highly regarded for his ability to produce subtle, natural-looking results when administering dermal fillers and BOTOX near Palm Springs and other areas of Southern California.
