Throw Away Your Razor with Laser Hair Removal in West Palm Beach

If you live in West Palm Beach, you need to be beach-ready day and night. Shaving is time-consuming and may result in cuts and ingrown hairs. Waxing is messy at home and expensive at a salon. Laser hair removal is the solution to these and more problems with getting rid of unwanted body hair. You could even throw away your razor and any other hair removal paraphernalia and have smooth skin year-round with laser hair removal treatments.

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in West Palm Beach and the U.S., laser hair removal is a medical treatment that uses laser energy to damage the follicle and impede hair growth. The laser passes through the upper layers of skin to reach an individual hair follicle. The pigment in the follicle absorbs the laser light as heat, which safely destroys the follicle. Many destroyed follicles can no longer grow hair, but if some hair does continue to grow, it will be thin and pale and can be removed with a maintenance treatment. With waxing, you need to wait until all of the hair has grown in before waxing again. This is not the case with laser hair removal. You can have a touch-up treatment whenever you want.

Laser hair removal does not guarantee permanent hair removal, but it will greatly reduce the hair that regrows. In order to get the smooth skin you want, it will likely take a series of treatments depending on the size of the area where the hair is being removed, as well as other factors.

Laser hair removal is a suitable procedure for almost anywhere on the body. The most popular places are the face, legs, bikini line, underarms, chest and back. You may be asked to avoid waxing and plucking for a set amount of time before the treatment date. However, you can shave because it doesn’t affect the follicle.

Today, technology has advanced the lasers used for laser hair removal so that it is suitable for many circumstances. When you have a consultation with our expert at Supriya MD Dermatologist in West Palm Beach or Jupiter, you can learn more about the procedure and if it is your best option for smooth skin all year long.
