Effective hair removal in Florida uses selective photothermolysis

Laser hair removal, in recent years, has become one of the most requested procedures around the country. Both men and women can benefit greatly from the permanent reduction of unwanted hair. Whether you are plagued with too much hair growth in a certain area, or are simply ready to throw out your razor, wax, or tweezers, Dr. Vitulli can help you achieve your goals with the latest hair removal techniques for comfortable treatment and lasting results.

Laser hair removal treats hair right at the root, affecting growth through the application of laser light. An FDA-cleared treatment, laser hair removal heats the hair inside the follicle, causing its evaporation. Treatment takes place in our comfortable treatment room. After treatment with a hand-held wand, during which a warming sensation may be felt, the skin will appear smooth and hair-free.

Selective photothermolysis hair removal

Laser hair removal is no longer a single form of treatment. There are different devices and technologies used around the world. Selective photothermolysis, or SPTLm, is most common, and uses a controlled wavelength of high-intensity laser energy at specific intervals, or pulses. This type of hair removal targets the follicle and the hair present in it.

Science has shown that darker matter absorbs more light, which means that the melanin is also affected. This is beneficial, as melanin encourages hair growth. The stunting of melanin in treated hair follicles leads to the permanent reduction in hair after the completion of a customized treatment plan.

The benefit of laser hair removal with your experienced dermatologist at A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser surgery in Jupiter, Florida is obvious. Removing unwanted hair is something most people do on a daily basis. Treating follicles throughout the growth cycle with laser light depletes melanin and vaporizes the hair present in the follicle during the time of each treatment. Upon the completion of your designated number of treatments, daily hair removal practices are a thing of the past. You will not have to deal with razors, tweezers, or wax; and you can enjoy smooth, beautiful skin.

Dr. Vitulli has completed advanced training to help you love your skin. Call Center for Dermatology in Jupiter for your hair removal consultation.
