Never Spend Money on Razors Ever Again with Laser Hair Removal!

Top Laser Hair Removal

Keeping up with the maintenance of body hair is the dread of many women. Rightfully so, this unspoken ritual can prove to be very expensive and take up lots of precious time. While you may feel like you are a slave to your razor, there is a better way! The Miami Center for Dermatology offers some of the Top Laser Hair Removal options for individuals who are ready to kiss their razor goodbye for good!

Many people do not fully understand the process of laser hair removal and therefore tend to be skeptical towards it. However, our methods are completely safe. The beauty of our technology is that it effectively destroys the hair itself without harming the surrounding skin. However, as with all medical procedures, there is a slight risk that will be discussed at your consultation as per protocol.

Effective Hair Removal

The scientific principle behind our Top Laser Hair Removal is called selective photothermolysis (SPTL). Most areas require five to nine treatments, but the number of treatments that each individual will need is really based off of the thickness and normal growth process of their hair. Other’s may be scared because they think that with the word “laser” comes pain, but it all really depends on an individual’s pain tolerance. For some, it resembles a gentle pinch, and for others a snap or a rubber band, but no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.

Most areas require 5-9 treatments, but the number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on various factors, such as hair thickness, the area size, and hair growth cycle. All laser systems work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments will be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and tender. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. But in actuality, these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and will take approximately 2 weeks to fall out. Between treatments, you should not wax or pluck your hair, but you may shave as frequently as you wish.
