How Laser Hair Removal actually Works

First, it’s important to know how laser hair removal actually works. According to the manufacturers of the laser that works all the hair-removal magic, Syneron Candela,

The Gentle Max Pro is the Gold Standard for Laser Hair Removal in all Fitzpatrick skin types. It is a dual-wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser for high-performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, performance, safety, and patient satisfaction.”

In a series of 4-6 visits, you can target any area that you wish to make free of hair, and free of all the effort it takes to keep it that way, including:

You’ll be in and out of the office in a flash, pun intended, and will need to wait about 6 weeks for your next visit. The best part is the time in-between visits, when you find your hair growing less and less, thinning itself out until it’s virtually gone.

Here are the top 6 misconceptions and myths about laser hair removal, that we’re debunking once and for all:

Laser hair removal only works on certain skin types.

Maybe with other lasers, or maybe in the past, but at Fox Vein & Laser Experts, this is simply not the case. “Our Gentle Max Pro is the ideal laser hair removal treatment because it works on all skin types,” says Dr. Susan FoxNo matter your skin type, color, or sensitivity-level, you can rest assured that you will reach your desired results with this laser.”

Laser hair removal feels like torture.

Again, this is totally false. While laser hair removal will not be without some sensation, it is not the painful, scary, monster that some people might think it is. The best way we can describe the pain-level of laser hair removal is that it all depends on your skin. It could feel like almost nothing at all, or at the absolute most, you may feel a tingling sensation similar to a rubber-band snap. If you feel more comfortable applying numbing cream before your laser hair removal treatment, simply let us know and we’ll be happy to recommend one for you that will make your laser hair removal procedure at Fox Vein & Laser Experts feel like a walk in the park.

Laser hair removal appointments take too long.

As we mentioned above, your laser hair removal treatments may just feel quicker than your last leg wax. Depending on the size of the area that you’re treating, you’ll be under the laser for no more than 15-20 minutes at the maximum. This is an ideal skincare treatment doctor Miami to tackle on your lunch break, on your way to or from work, or when you’re simply just pressed for time.

I can’t shave in between my laser hair removal appointments.

Huh? What?! NO WAY!

While your hair will be growing less and less with each laser hair removal visit, we understand the need to still want to keep things groomed and tidy. And with our Gentle Max Pro laser hair removal treatments, not only can you shave in between visits, we actually encourage it.

It’s important to shave before your laser hair removal visits,” says our in-house laser expert, Bonnie. “The only thing we’ll ask that you don’t do is wax or tweeze since this takes the hair out from its root. We need to laser each hair at its root for maximum effectiveness of the laser hair removal process.”

I will have lots of redness and irritation for a long time after each treatment.

While you may have some slight redness immediately following your laser hair removal appointment, don’t fret – it won’t last longer than a few hours at most. The level at which the laser is administered depends on the color and thickness of your hair, and the sensitivity of your skin.

Some redness is common after each visit but will disappear before you know it – just like that hair that’s been driving you nuts since it first appeared on your body.  Learn more about our Miami Vein Expert.
