"Dr Padma’s spa treatments are very effective. I experienced a big decrease in brown spots, a more firm skin tone, and a glowing complexion. I’m 76 yo, so that’s saying a lot about these treatments. I highly recommend you consider this for yourself. Dr Sripada is also my primary care physician and, in my opinion, the best! She makes herself available when you need her, returns phone calls and messages in a timely manner, never rushes a visit, explains things clearly, and, very important to me, treats the whole person. Not just physical concerns, but also a person’s mental and emotional health. She is an excellent diagnostician who cares for her patients with patience, caring, compassion, and concern. A bonus: her staff is equally professional and caring."- B.N. / Google / May 17, 2021
"I am scheduled for hip surgery later this month, but there's great uncertainty about timing, given the Covid surge. Dr. Sripada's calm professionalism during my clearance visit was most reassuring and welcome. I had put off finding a general practitioner for years; so grateful for having established a relationship with her and this practice."- K.S. / Google / Jan 01, 2021

Where Can I have Laser Hair Removal?
There really is no right or wrong answer to where you can have laser hair removal on your face or your body. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Padma and our team will discuss where you would like to have laser hair removal. We will also make sure it is safe for you to have a laser treatment. During your consultation, we will go over your needs, concerns, and goals to decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal techniques (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, or bleaching)
- Have dark hair
- Are in good overall health
Our Laser hair removal Technique
On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you will get settled into one of our private treatment rooms for your treatment. We will make sure that your skin is free of oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the procedure, your laser technician will stretch out your skin where the Icon laser will target your unwanted hair. The energy from our Icon laser will destroy the hair follicles, which prevents growth in the future. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to get your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to give the treated areas a chance to recover. This also allows time for follicles that were in the dormant phase to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art Icon laser we use at Dr. Padma's Aesthetics zeros in on only the hair follicles, which preserves the skin of the area being treated.
After Your laser Session
Although laser hair removal is relatively gentle, the treated area of your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn after being under the laser. When you leave our office, you are free to resume your daily activities, but you should limit how active you are and protect yourself from sun exposure to let your treated skin recover. When you get home following your appointment, we suggest applying soothing creams or ice packs to alleviate any discomfort.
You will have a series of hair removal sessions scheduled as follow-up appointments. This is the best way to capture hair that grows in after the first treatment.
