About Laser Hair Removal
Our hair removal system uses a non-invasive, gentle laser light that is specifically designed to eliminate hair. During treatment, highly controlled flashes of light energy are delivered to the treatment area through a wand placed on the skin, where they are absorbed by the hair follicles below the surface of the skin. The laser light destroys the hair follicle without damaging the skin. Patients should shave (not wax) the area they will want to treat prior to the treatment.
Our patients from Jupiter, Tequesta, Stuart, and the West Palm Beach area choose laser hair removal for a wide variety of body areas. In fact, almost any area of the body (except around the eyes) can be treated with laser hair removal. Popular treatment areas for women include the bikini area, underarm, and facial hair. Men often choose laser hair removal for their backs, neck, shoulders, and chest.
Keep in mind that laser hair removal generally is not effective on blonde, white, or gray hair, but we will review your hair color at a complimentary consultation and determine if this treatment will be right for you. The laser hair removal technology we use can safely treat all skin types and colors.
Fast Facts on Laser Hair Removal
Here are some of the most important things you need to know if you are considering laser hair removal at Hass Plastic Surgery & MediSpa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
Number of Treatments Required:
Generally, our patients need six laser treatments for maximum hair reduction, although some patients may require more or a touch-up now and then. Treatments are generally spaced about four to eight weeks apart, giving time for the treated hairs to fall out and new hair growth (part of the natural hair growth cycle) to emerge.
This varies from 15 minutes to one hour or more, depending on the amount of hair and the size of the area being treated.
People respond to laser hair removal treatments differently – some have minor skin redness and swelling for a few hours, while others have almost no side effects. Treatment and recovery is comfortable for most patients.
A significant percentage of hair in the treatment area will be removed permanently. Hair will become lighter and sparser after each session.
Laser hair removal is effective on a wide range of body and face areas, with permanent hair reduction achieved in almost all cases.
