The Scoop on Laser Hair Removal

Craving smooth, touchable, hair-free skin? People are constantly looking for laser hair removal in Deerfield Beach due to the town’s prime location in sunny South Florida, where warm weather calls for shorts and bathing suits on a regular basis. It is one of our most popular and one of the best skin care treatments available at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, a Deerfield Beach dermatology office.

We’ve seen women of all ages — from pre-teen to adult — who request laser hair removal, and we’ve seen an increase in men too. Dr. Jason Green and his team make it easy for you to never have to worry about shaving, waxing or tweezing again. No more red bumps, nicks or burns, and no more tireless maintenance. For Boca laser hair removal, we’ve got you covered.

During a laser hair removal session, beams of highly concentrated light penetrate the hair follicles and destroy them. Because of the specific wavelength used by the laser beam that passes through the skin to each individual hair follicle, it allows Dr. Green to perform more than one procedure on a client during the same visit. This is especially good news for our clients who are interested in having more than one area of the body treated. In the interest of saving time, since we know how valuable our time can be, you’ll be able to schedule one appointment for say, your legs, and underarms, all on the same day.

Laser hair removal can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, chest, back and bikini line. If you have unwanted hair anywhere on your body, laser hair removal can take care of it. The most popular areas for women are the underarms and bikini area, and for men, it’s the chest and back.

There are a few housekeeping details you should know about before scheduling your laser hair removal appointment. Six weeks prior to the treatment, limit any plucking, waxing, or electrolysis on the area you will have worked on. Laser hair removal targets the root of the hair, and if there is no root there for it to grab onto, it will not work its magic. We also recommend avoiding any kind of exposure to the sun for six weeks before and after treatment, as this could decrease the effectiveness and increase the risk of post-treatment complications.

One very important thing to note: on the day of or before your appointment, it’s ideal to be cleanly shaven in the area that will be treated. It might seem counterintuitive, but do you want to sit there and smell the odor of your hair being burnt off? I didn’t think so.

Side effects are very minimal, aside from slight redness in the treated area that looks and feels a little like sunburn. It’ll only last a couple of days, and you can always resort to cold compresses or moisturizers to help relieve any discomfort. You’ll notice the hair from the treated area will fall out over the next month or so, in between your appointments, which we suggest making six weeks apart.
