Looking at affordable, permanent ways to get rid of unwanted hair? Find out about laser hair removal in Tijuana with Medical Departures. If you live in the southwestern states in the US just a quick trip over the US-Mexico border for your treatment sessions could save you a substantial amount.
Tijuana has always attracted Americans for discount shopping, but it is currently having somewhat of a renaissance. Sure – the discount shopping is still an attraction, but a great culinary scene and vibrant nightlife has added to TJ’s enduring appeal.
If you want a permanent solution to unwanted hair then laser hair removal may be an option. However, it is most effective if you have pale skin and dark hair. However, if this isn’t you there are other alternatives that have emerged, which have been found to get good results.
Laser hair removal is not a one-off treatment, and you will have to put in the commitment to attend for several sessions. Depending on the amount of hair you have, and the area you want to target, this could be between 3 and 8 sessions.
The price is one of the major reasons for going to Tijuana for laser hair removal – most people save up to two-thirds on US prices – which adds up to a fairly substantial sum over the number of sessions.
Mexico is fast becoming a medical, health and beauty tourism destination – especially for North Americans, although thanks to its status as a tourist destination, it isn’t unusual for international patients to seek treatment here too.
No doubt, part of Tijuana’s popularity is its proximity to the US border – making it a convenient spot to travel to, particularly for beauty treatments.

The hairs in the area to be treated will be cut short – the shorter distance the laser beam has to travel down the shaft the better as it will retain its energy and be more effective at killing the root. You will be supplied with protection for your eyes and a test patch will be done to ensure there are no adverse reactions, and that the treatment is at the right setting. If your practitioner is satisfied the treatment will continue – anything from minutes to an hour.
Laser hair removal isn’t painful, but there is a little discomfort. After treatment, the treated areas may be red and feel hot so you may want to apply soothing cream or an ice pack to the area.
Any redness and the hot sensation should disappear after a few hours, and you will notice immediately that your skin is smoother and hair-free.
As hair follicles grow in different cycles, you may feel the hair comes back quickly after the first treatment. This is why a number of sessions are recommended as different hairs will be appearing at different times. If you persist with the laser hair treatment, hair growth will become thinner until, eventually, it ceases to come back at all.
Prices vary depending on the size of the area being treated, but an average price in Tijuana may be $75 per session, compared to $230 in the United States.
