Five Things You Never Knew About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is popular, and for good reason. It works! Not surprising, it was listed among the top five cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed in 2017. Laser hair removal is also a fan favorite among women and men here at DermaClinic medspa in Coral Gables where we specialize in the treatment, using state-of-the-art technology. We provide superior cosmetic services.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Imagine not having to shave, tweeze, or wax to remove unwanted hair, ever again. That’s the beauty of laser hair removal. In the procedure, concentrated beams of light target the pigment (melanin) in the hair, and when the pigment in the follicles absorb the light, the hair is destroyed. This does not harm the surrounding skin. People often ask us various questions, so we thought we’d answer them with this guide.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work for All Skin Tones and Hair Types?

Here at DermaClinic, we use the Soprano ICE laser hair removal system on our patients, which is the best one on the market. It’s effective on all skin tones – light and dark skin, and all hair types – thick or fine, straight, curly, or course. And while the optimal candidate has brown or dark hair, we’ve gotten great results with blond hair, as well.

Can Laser Hair Removal Be Used for Any Body Part?

You may think that the procedure is used for only certain body parts, but that’s not the case. Women typically use it on their faces, underarms, legs, and bikini area. Men usually use it on their faces, as well the back and chest. But any area of the body – ears, nostrils, groin (men) and bikini area, buttocks, and even the neck can be safely lasered, targeting unwanted hair.

Can Laser Hair Removal Be Used on Recently Tanned Skin?

As we mentioned above, our treatments can be used on any skin tone, including tanned skin. Because of the unique method used with Soprano ICE, treatments can be performed at any time of the year, regardless of whether you have a suntan or not.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Patients often ask, “Is laser hair removal painful?”  Not with the Soprano ICE system. Treatment is virtually painless, delivering a massage-like sensation. The unique heating and energy delivery method effectively damage the hair follicles while preventing injury and pain to the surrounding tissue. At the same time, integrated Soprano ICE technology cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain. It’s also a time-saver. Treatment sessions are super-quick, even for large areas, such as the legs or back. Here’s another plus: you can return to your normal activities, including working out at the gym immediately following your laser session.

Are Laser Hair Removal Results Permanent?

Soprano ICE is the most advanced system for permanent hair removal, offering the fastest laser hair removal solution available today. The length of treatments can vary, depending on the patient’s skin tone, hair type and the area being treated.  Patients typically see results after 6 to 8 treatment sessions.
