Laser Hair Removal
Tired of plucking/waxing/shaving unwanted hair? There is still time to take advantage of our seasonal promotion for laser hair removal - 50% off all laser hair removal packages - going on until the end of August. Please call 239-561-3376 for more information.
At Florida Skin Center, we use the Nd:Yag laser, which is safe for treating all skin types. Laser hair removal works on dark hairs only. The laser emits highly concentrated light energy into the hair follicles. The pigment found in the root of the hair follicles absorbs the light, which then destroys the hair. It is advised to minimize plucking or waxing hair for several weeks before the laser treatment, as doing so temporarily removes the roots of the hairs. It is also important to avoid the sun and to wear sunscreen, to minimize the chance of adverse effects. Most patients will require several treatments for optimal results. Treatments are done every 4-6 weeks. There is no downtime with the procedure. There may be some redness and swelling, but patients can return to work after their treatment.
Hair will grow less frequently, and when it does grow, the hair will be finer and lighter in color.
