Miami Laser Hair Removal

Kiss your razor goodbye! Toss the tweezers, and lose the wax!

The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photo thermolysis (SPTL). At the Miami Center for Dermatology, we understand the tedious and time-consuming chore that is frequent shaving. For this reason, Dr. Longwill and her staff provide Miami laser hair removal treatments. This treatment helps patients wanting to reduce hair growth on their bodies.

How Miami Laser Hair Removal Works

Regardless the area of your body you need to de-hair, Miami laser hair removal can help. The treatment lasts a matter of minutes. Hair follicles get destroyed with minimum discomfort. The dermatologist utilizes a beam of highly-concentrated energy to target and remove hairy areas. The energy from the laser is attracted to the hair pigmentation. Excess energy is absorbed similarly to light on a dark piece of clothing.

Consequently, laser hair removal is optimal on individuals with dark, coarse hair, and a fair skin tone complexion. However, those with a different body details combination can still achieve preeminent results.

Miami laser hair removal works by matching specific wavelengths of light and pulse durations. This obtains an optimal effect on targeted areas without affecting surrounding tissues. Lasers can cause localized damage by selective heating dark targeted matter or melanin. This occurs in areas causing hair growth, while not heating the surrounding skin. The dark target matter or chromophore can be naturally occurring, or artificially introduced.

FAQs About Laser Hair Removal

Areas Treated For Hair Removal

We remove hair from most parts of the body. This includes the face, legs, arms, chest, and back. We also treat sensitive areas like the underarms and bikini line.

What Do Hair Removal Treatments Feel Like?

Most patients compare the sensation of the laser’s pulse to a rubber band snap. Over the course of 1-3 weeks after the hair removal procedure, the hair begins to fall away. Several treatments can be needed to generate the desired outcome. Patients see instantaneous results after the initial hair removal treatment. This demonstrates a single procedure’s effectiveness. With each subsequent treatment, you can see progressive results. Fewer and fewer hairs return.

Many patients think about stopping treatment when they see results. However, finishing the treatment regimen is important. The final treatment displays permanent hair reduction’s highest percentage.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

Most areas require 5 to 9 treatments. However, the number of required treatments for optimal, long-term benefits varied from patient to patient. Hair thickness, area size, and hair growth cycle factor into the process. All laser hair removal systems work by disabling hair in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Other hairs enter this active growth phase at differing times. As a result, additional treatment is necessary to disable all hair in the area.

What Happens After Treatment?

Immediately following treatment, the area can feel red and tender. Three to seven days after treatment, you could experience hair regrowth. However, these hairs shed as a result of treatment. They take approximately 2 weeks to fall out. We recommend not waxing or plucking hair between treatments, although shaving is encouraged.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

The beauty of our technology is the effective destruction of hair without harming surrounding skin. As with all medical procedures, there is a risk that can be discussed during your first consultation.

Can Anyone Undergo Laser Hair Removal?
