Laser Hair Removal Boca Raton

Are you frustrated with traditional body hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams? Have you ever thought of the time and money you could save by not having to buy hair removal products and spend hours every week dealing with unwanted body hair? Laser hair removal might be the solution you need. 

What is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

 
Laser hair removal is a technique performed by our laser hair removal specialist that uses controlled blasts of highly concentrated light (lasers) to surround hair follicles.

The light from the lasers is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicles, destroying the hair within the follicle itself. With repeated treatments, your hair will be unable to grow back, leaving your skin soft and smooth. Our laser specialist has a gift for providing effective laser hair removal treatments that leave the skin smooth without irritation.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

 

Laser hair removal provides numerous benefits to patients. Common areas for treatment include the legs, bikini area, arms, shoulders, back, neck, chest, upper lip, and chin. The benefits include:

  • Removing unwanted hair
  • Removing excess hair
  • Leaving you with smooth, soft skin
  • Providing clients with confidence in their appearance

Who is a Candidate For Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

 

Because laser hair removal works by using the pigment in your hair follicles, the technique works best if you have darker hair. The darker the hair, the better the light from the laser can be absorbed, and the more effectively the hair can be destroyed inside the follicle. Luckily, you’re more likely to be searching for a permanent solution to hair removal if you have darker body hair because it takes more to maintain smooth skin.

Laser hair removal can still prove effective for those with less pigment in their hair. While laser hair removal might not be able to completely remove all unwanted body hair for those with lighter pigment, the procedure can still drastically reduce the amount of hair in your problem areas.

What to Expect Prior to Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment 

 

If you’re planning on receiving laser hair removal treatments, there are a few steps you should take prior to your appointment, including:

  • Avoid sun exposure for six weeks
  • Shave the day before treatment or the day of your treatment
  • Avoid exfoliating cleanser, sugar scrubs, and bleaching creams for at least three days
  • Refrain from removing hair by waxing, tweezing, or using depilatory creams for at least four weeks

What to Expect During to Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment 

 

Before the laser hair removal treatment begins, our laser hair removal specialist will clean the skin where the treatment will be administered and apply a numbing gel to the area. Our high-energy laser will then send gentle pulses of light to your skin. 

The procedure typically takes one hour, but this depends on the area being treated and the size of the area. Oftentimes smaller areas can take just a few minutes to treat, whereas larger areas (such as the chest or legs) can take longer. 

Patients often report the treatment feeling similar to a rubber band snapping along the skin and the slight discomfort is only temporary. 

Protective eyewear is worn during the treatment in order to protect your eyes from the laser treatment. 

What to Expect After Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment 

 

While your specific experience may vary, it is generally suggested to look for maximum results after six to ten treatments. These treatments should be spread out every five to six weeks to allow for healing in between sessions. To help your skin heal between treatments, you should:

  • Avoid waxing, tweezing, or depilatory creams
  • Avoid high heat like hot tubs or saunas for 72 hours after treatment
  • Refrain from using sugar scrubs, exfoliating cleansers, and retinoids for up to three days after
  • You want to make sure your skin is never irritated going into treatment as it can react negatively to the lasers used. You also want to ensure your natural hair growth is uninterrupted by any factors other than the laser hair removal itself. This way, the laser can find and destroy any hair that has started to grow inside the follicle.

Because the follicle itself remains intact, you might need repeated treatments at some point down the road. Call the experts at our office today to make an appointment to see if laser hair removal is the right choice for you. We can perform a consultation and determine how many treatments you might need, if there are any required maintenance treatments, and provide you with a cost estimate. Don’t let unwanted body hair hold you back from living your life freely.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?  

 

Laser hair removal uses controlled blasts of highly concentrated light (lasers) to surround hair follicles. These follicles are small cavities within your skin where your hair grows. The pigment in your hair follicles absorbs the light from the lasers, which destroys the hair within the follicle. After multiple treatments, hair is unable to grow back, providing you with smooth, rejuvenated skin. 

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt? 

 

Any time your skin is in contact with a laser of any sort, you’re bound to experience a certain level of sensation. During laser hair removal, you are likely to feel a sensation similar to a snap of a rubber band. Most clinicians apply a numbing cream prior to the procedure which can relieve some of the discomforts you might experience.
