Hello, bathing suit season! The fun days of summer are just around the corner, and both men and women are looking for smoother skin. In South Florida, it's almost always beach weather, so it's never too soon to start laser hair removal treatments in Delray Beach. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. because it eliminates and permanently removes all unwanted hair. If you are not happy with shaving daily or frequently waxing, laser hair removal may be a great solution for you.
At Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, we use the Forever Bare BBL™ (from Sciton™) laser which incorporates the latest advancements in cosmetic laser technology. BBL is actually a brand name for intense pulsed light (IPL). This type of laser produces multiple bursts of lower energy, instead of all at once, to gently remove unwanted hair.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Throughout the years, you may have heard that laser hair removal wasn’t for everyone, but thanks to new laser hair technology, that’s no longer the case. The Sciton laser is both safe and effective for all skin types, including tanned and ethnic skin. Laser hair removal can be performed on the neck/face, arms/underarms, back/chest/shoulders, legs, abdomen, and bikini/Brazilian. However, if you are thinking of undergoing laser hair removal, it is best to avoid waxing or plucking hairs for six weeks prior to treatment.
How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal involves using a concentrated beam of light (laser), which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The laser will destroy hair follicles and inhibit further hair growth. The length of time required for the office visit and the number of treatments needed will vary, depending on the part of the body being targeted. It typically takes 4 to 6 treatments to be effective, but you will have noticeable results in 2 to 4 treatments. If or when the hair grows back, it will be thinner and with a lighter shade. There’s no downtime, and though you might experience some redness, you can resume your regular activities right away.
