Are you embarrassed to take your shirt off at the beach because of back hair? Do you have ingrown hairs as a result of too much waxing? Laser hair removal from Pure Skin Dermatology in Orlando is effective in removing unwanted hair as well as helping patients restore their confidence in their appearance. It is also a great option for patients who are unhappy with shaving, waxing, or tweezing as a method to remove unwanted hair. It is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States and results can last anywhere from several months to years.

How it Works

Hair removal is achieved through a concentrated pulse of light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigment in the follicles and destroys the hair. It is effective in removing unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and other areas.

The lasers are able to target dark hair quickly while leaving the skin surrounding the unwanted hair unaffected. The laser pulses at a fraction of a second, allowing a small area to be treated in as little as a minute. Larger areas such as the back could take as long as an hour.

The Benefits

  • Less frequent shaving – patients who receive the recommended 5 treatments can see up to a 90% reduction in hair. This will result in a drastic decrease in the amount of shaving you will have to do in the future.
  • Fewer ingrown hairs – fewer hair follicles means your chance of ingrown hairs will drop dramatically.
  • Softer skin – the days of prickly hair after shaving will be long gone.
  • Renewed confidence – The emotional benefits are often as important as the physical. Patients commonly report that laser hair removal has made them feel confident enough to wear a bathing suit at the beach.
