painless Laser Hair Reduction and Removal Near Me in Jupiter Area
Shaving, waxing, and plucking unwanted hair from the body can take weeks, even months, of our free time over one's lifespan.

This painless treatment can eliminate unwanted hair anywhere on the body using special lasers that destroy follicles. Continue reading to learn more!.

What is Laser Hair Reduction and Removal, and How Does It Work to Eliminate Unwanted Hair?

Laser light works in the same way that a magnifying glass focuses the rays from the sun to burn a piece of paper. The same principle applies to laser hair removal, except that the heat energy that destroys hair follicles is produced directly from laser light. Laser hair removal works by selectively targeting pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft and follicle while sparing the surrounding skin. The laser light is absorbed by the hair shaft's melanin and transformed into heat energy. This heat energy then destroys the follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

How Many Appointments Do I Need to Achieve Reduction or Removal of Unwanted Hair?

Depending on the type of treatment being used, laser hair removal can be completed in one sitting or over several sessions. Multiple treatments are necessary because not all your hairs will enter their growth phase simultaneously and may require treatment several weeks apart. At each visit, only those hairs that are currently growing will be treated. Usually, six treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart will be needed to provide long-term hair removal results.

What Types of Lasers are Used For Laser Hair Reduction and Removal Treatment?

The type of laser used for laser hair removal will determine how effective the treatment will be. There are two types of cosmetic lasers commonly used for this purpose: ablative and non-ablative lasers.
  • Ablative. Ablative lasers work by vaporizing the tissue around the hair follicle, which effectively destroys it. This type of laser is very effective but can also be quite painful. It is usually only used for small areas, such as the upper lip or chin.
  • Non-ablative. Non-ablative lasers work by targeting the hair shaft without damaging the surrounding tissue. This type of laser is less effective than ablative lasers but is better tolerated by patients. It can be used on larger body areas, such as the back or legs.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted hair. However, it is essential to note that it is not permanent. The results of laser hair removal are typically long-lasting, but some regrowth may occur over time. Maintenance treatments with Dr. Peter Vitulli of A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic, and Laser surgery may be necessary to keep unwanted hair at bay.
