Enjoy a Carefree and Confident Tomorrow with Laser Hair Removal Treatment in Jupiter FL Area
Spend more time doing what you love and less time shaving, plucking, tweezing, and waxing. A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery’s trained technicians offer a way to enjoy silky, smooth skin for good – and without the discomfort of conventional permanent techniques such as electrolysis. Laser hair removal treatment in Jupiter FL is tolerated well by patients and can be completed in minutes. You may return to work or play immediately after treatment and, in as little as around 12 weeks, you can be hair-free. While it may sound too good to be true, many A Center for Dermatology patients have been thrilled with the real results from today’s advanced laser technologies, administered safely by skilled professionals and customized to each patient’s skin type, coloring, and hair thickness.

The science

Dr. Peter Vitulli and his professional team have an entire category of laser treatments to offer to patients. Lasers may be used to banish dark spots, tighten saggy skin, and flush out fat. Regardless of their application, laser technologies generally all work the same way; the device is directed to the treatment area. Energy is generated by the laser’s beam of light. This energy produces heat. Controlled heat has therapeutic effects. Lasers precisely break up hyperpigmentation, damaged fat cells, and promote the body’s natural production of collagen for firm, smooth, fresh looking skin. Since the laser is such a targeted treatment, the surrounding skin isn’t affected. So, lasers are considered to be a safe and low-risk alternative to more invasive, surgical procedures.

As it relates to hair removal, the highly concentrated light delivered by the laser penetrates the follicles or sacs underneath the skin from which hairs grow. The light is absorbed by the melanin or pigment that gives hair its color. As the light is absorbed, the hair shafts that extend above the skin’s surface are heated and the follicles are damaged. This process inhibits the growth of treated hairs. Selective photothermolysis was first demonstrated in 1996 and is the scientific term for the targeted absorption of laser light and heating of melanin that is fundamental to hair removal treatment.

What to expect

All procedures start with a consultation. There are many factors that must be considered before developing a treatment plan; for instance, traditionally, laser hair removal works best on patients with dark hair and light skin. This contrast helps because the laser selectively targets the melanin or color pigment in the hair. A Center for Dermatology’s technicians can choose from many different types of lasers to determine the best device for your coloration, and skin and hair type. Customized lasers and advanced features, such as built-in cooling technologies, help to minimize side effects associated with earlier-generation devices, and among darker-complexioned patients.

While laser hair removal generally requires little to no preparation, we’ll discuss medications and supplements best avoided before treatment. Some chemicals may cause your skin to be more sensitive to laser light, which can lead to pigmentation problems – light or dark patches post-treatment. You should also avoid the temptation to pluck or wax before your appointment; the laser can’t be effective because the “target,” melanin, is absent within the hair follicles.

Since the latest lasers are designed with comfort in mind, pain is usually limited to sensitive areas such as the face. It subsides quickly. Side effects are not unlike those commonly experienced for other cosmetic treatments, including temporary itching, redness, and mild swelling. Sessions are typically completed within 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated. It’s important to protect your skin from the sun afterward, so be sure to avoid tanning and slather on adequate, broad-spectrum sunscreen. You will immediately notice smoother, silkier skin; however:
  • Laser hair removal is not a “one and done treatment.”
  • To get the results you seek, 4 to 8 treatments scheduled at 3- to 6-week intervals may be required.
  • Hair grows cyclically. Only those hairs in the active (androgen) growth phase respond to laser treatment.
  • Maintenance treatments may be required once or twice a year.
  • Hormones can cause some hairs to grow back.
  • You’ll notice less hair after each treatment session.
Buy more time for yourself. Enjoy the carefree confidence that comes with going hair-free. Invest in laser hair removal. Call 561-427-2000 to schedule a consultation.
