Laser Hair Removal By Licensed Medical Practitioners
Features of the procedure
Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that eliminates the unwanted hair on your body. It is a modern, painless and safe method to get rid of annoying hair for a long time. As you explore options for laser hair removal in Tampa, we would like to explain our treatment in some detail to help you make the right decision.
Indications and contraindications
You should be aware of all indications and contraindications of laser hair removal. It is an ideal solution if you have ingrown hairs or if your skin is prone to irritation and is too sensitive for usual shaving or waxing.
That said, it is best to avoid laser hair removal procedures if you have rashes or herpes on your skin, if you feel sick, or if suffer from diabetes or oncological diseases. If you are pregnant, you should postpone the procedure until after childbirth, because the hormonal background during pregnancy is aberrant, and hair removal may not bring the desired results. Before your first procedure at Florida Aesthetics in Brandon, our experts will examine you individually and advise you whether to proceed with the procedure.
Before and after
You will not wait long to see results. After the first procedure, you will notice an obvious effect, and after six to eight sessions, your skin will be smooth, silky, and hair-free. The darker your hair is, the more noticeable the results will be. Laser treatment will be less effective if you have predominantly red, light, or gray hair, because these hairs contain a very small amount of melanin.
Laser hair removal eliminates the risk of ingrown hairs without causing any damage to your skin. Our laser technology cools and soothes as it glides along your skin eliminating skin damage and making the procedure least painless. To achieve ideal results, our licensed aestheticians will tailor a treatment plan that caters to your specific condition and will ensure you get the right type of and optimal number of treatments.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 6-8 treatments. However, the number of laser treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your laser treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
What are the possible side effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
How does laser compare with electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the laser effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
