Posts for tag: Laser Hair Removal

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.

laser hair removal in delray beachIsn’t it about time you stop shaving, plucking, waxing, or threading unwanted hair from your body? Consider saving your precious time and money, and step into the light - the world of laser hair removal. It’s no wonder the American Society of Plastic Surgeons listed laser hair removal among the top five cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed in 2017. It’s safe and it works. Laser hair removal is the best way to remove unwanted hair for many reasons, which we’re about to reveal to you.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

But first, an explanation of how it works. Laser hair removal treatment involves using a concentrated beam of light (laser light), which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This destroys hair follicles enough to inhibit future hair growth. We use Sciton™ lasers, which incorporate the latest advancements in cosmetic laser technology. This type of laser produces multiple bursts to gently remove unwanted hair instead of all at once. This also makes it possible to treat various areas of the body – both big and small. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types and tones, including tanned skin tones. There are many reasons for you to consider coming to Delray Beach for hair laser removal. 

Reason #1: Reduces Hair Growth

If you’re looking for the most effective way to reduce hair growth, laser hair removal fits the bill. It will drastically reduce your hair growth and thanks to new technology, nearly all skin tones/ hair colors can enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. Most studies show an 80 percent hair growth reduction. Another plus – you don’t have to worry about annoying ingrown hairs.

Reason #2: Fast Treatments

Laser hair removal treatments don’t take very long at all.  The length of time will vary, depending on the target areas. Obviously, removing hair from the back will take longer than removing it from the upper lip.

Reason #3: Minimal Side Effects & No Downtime

While side effects from laser hair removal are minimal and rare, you may experience some redness or swelling at the site. These symptoms typically go away within several hours. There’s no downtime with our laser hair removal, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. It’s the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment on the market.

Reason #4: Works on Many Areas of the Body

Another benefit of laser hair removal is its versatility. It works on various areas of the body. Some of the most common areas include:

  • Face (upper lip, chin)
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Back
  • Neck  
  • Shoulders
  • Chest  

Reason #5: Long-Lasting Results

How long does hair removal last?” is an important question to ask.  Results will vary from person to person and are dependent on skin tone, hair type, hair color, and of course the area of the body being treated. But it's typically effective for several months to several years. And if or when your hair grows back, it'll come in much thinner and lighter.

Reason #6: Cost Effective

Think about how much money you normally spend, or the time you allocate for other hair-removal methods. That can easily add up.  Depending on the area being targeted, it normally takes 4 to 6 treatments to be effective, and again, results are long-lasting, all of which saves you time and money.

Laser Hair RemovalExcess facial or body hair can be troublesome for both men and women. Although common, removal methods such as shaving and waxing are temporary, time consuming, painful and often yield poor results. It’s no wonder more and more people are opting for long-lasting, convenient hair reduction via laser hair removal.

With the use of advanced laser technology, your dermatologist can treat most areas of unwanted hair successfully, conveniently and with fewer complications than other methods. Professional laser treatment is a non-invasive approach to permanent reduction of hair, which can easily treat large areas of hair growth in a short period of time.

In-Office Laser Hair Removal

Performed by an expert dermatologist, laser hair removal works by penetrating the skin with controlled pulses of light that are absorbed by the hair follicles.  Without damaging the skin and with minimal patient discomfort, the laser energy destroys the hair follicles and significantly impedes their ability to re-grow. Following treatment, patients enjoy smooth, soft skin and a long-lasting reduction in unwanted hair.

Since hair grows in cycles, the total number of required treatment sessions varies by patient skin type, hair color and hair coarseness. Common areas treated with laser hair removal include the legs, arms, back, shoulders, underarms, upper lip and the bikini area. Darker-colored hair is typically more responsive to laser treatment than light colored hair.

It’s important that you always choose an experienced dermatologist for hair removal to ensure the highest level of safety and efficiency. Your dermatologist will discuss the best laser hair removal options for your specific skin type, needs and expectations.
