Both men and women in the South Florida area deal with unwanted hair on the body. Whether it is the face, the legs, the underarms, or the chest, the removal of hair via traditional methods can be time-consuming and costly. This is why Dr. Marta Rendon, of Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, recommends patients consider permanent cosmetic services such as laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular among adults who are ready to take charge of their unwanted hair in a permanent manner. Although waxing, depilatory creams, and shaving are efficient methods of addressing this hair on the body, the results are not long lasting. Dr. Rendon will often suggest patients consider the benefits of laser hair removal as a permanent solution.
Laser hair removal is done with the Light Sheer Diode Laser. This is one of the most advanced lasers, which uses a pulsing beam to target hair follicles and keep them from producing new hair. This can only be done during the growth phase of the hair follicles, which is important to consider. Since the hair on the body grows in cycles, only active growth follicles will respond to the laser treatment. Because of this, it is essential that patients understand the process of hair elimination with laser therapy. One appointment will provide some reduction of hair in the area, but for optimum results, several sessions should be done. This ensures all hair follicles are treated while in the active phase, and patients experience the full benefits of this procedure.
Most appointments last less than an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Many patients find the treatment to be relatively tolerable, though some describe the feeling of the laser pulses as small rubber bands snapped on the skin. Cold packs can be applied to the skin before treatment to ensure ultimate comfort.
Treatment is done with no downtime and in a comfortable, fast manner.
