Is It Safe To Get Full Body Laser Hair Removal?
It is safe to say that laser hair removal is probably the most popular aesthetic body treatment, especially in cities like Miami and Palm Beach, where bathing suits are as frequently worn as shorts and t-shirts. We all want smooth, hair-free skin — and who wants to have to bother with shaving, waxing, and/or tweezing on a daily basis? No one, that’s who!
Best Laser Hair Removal Technology – GentleMax Pro®
Fox Vein & Laser Experts recognizes the demand for this treatment, and because of this, we offer our patients only the best of the best in laser hair removal technology. Whereas in the past, only people with dark hair and light skin were able to safely and effectively receive laser hair removal treatments, new and improved technology now makes it possible for people with all skin tones and hair colors to see results.
The device we use is called the GentleMax Pro®. The gentle, safe and effective machine is so powerful that patients only need about four to six treatments over a period of twelve months in order to see optimal results. Compared to past technology that could require as many as ten treatments, this is a huge advancement and definitely a game changer in the laser hair removal industry. The device works by transferring a rush of energy that goes directly into the hair’s follicle, which then absorbs the light energy and breaks down during the treatment. Once a certain number of treatments has been performed, the follicles will no longer produce any hair.
The sessions are quick and painless; however if you are worried about sensitive areas of the skin, a numbing cream is available to use 30 minutes prior to the treatment. You may experience slight redness after a treatment, but this will go away within a day at most. To calm the potential redness, our aestheticians always offer each patient the option of applying a cooling aloe gel immediately after a session.
Now for the question we know you’ve been itching to ask: can laser hair removal be done anywhere on the body? In short, YES it can! With the GentleMax Pro, laser hair removal can be done anywhere from head to toe. We have seen patients looking to get laser hair removal everywhere from larger areas like the legs, back and bikini line, to places like the chin, feet and toes, ears and even unibrow! Underarms, upper lip, facial peach fuzz, nose, arms, buttocks, chest, abdomen, neck… Wherever you have unwanted hair, our expert laser hair removal experts can get rid of it with the help of the GentleMax Pro!
There are just a few things to remember as you are going through the laser hair removal process:
- Sessions should be booked six to eight weeks apart.
- Stay out of the sun in between sessions. The laser might not work as effectively if the skin has been exposed to the sun within four weeks of a treatment.
- Do not use any fake tanning products, either.
- The area must be cleanly shaven and free of any makeup, lotion, sunscreen, deodorant, etc., prior to a treatment. We always offer patients wipes to use on the skin before the session begins.
- Do not wax the area being treated. Shaving is the only acceptable form of hair removal in between sessions.
