Get Ready for Fun on the Beach with Laser Hair Reduction!
- Posted on: Jul 7 2018
There are a lot of things I love about this state, but I have to admit that there’s one area where we tower over the rest (no, not in theme parks!) Our beaches are some of the most beautiful in the United States, and maybe even the world.
That isn’t just a biased opinion from someone who lives here, either. Millions of tourists come to Florida every year to walk on our white sand, swim in our beautiful blue waters, and enjoy our warm sun. The lure of the beaches can pull all of us in, and, to be honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
When we head to the beach or pool, we want to look our absolute best. In perfect shape, stylish in our swimsuits, looking like a picture in a travel magazine. And what’s the one thing that you never see in those pictures? Body hair.
Body hair can make us feel self-conscious about ourselves, and that can really influence our enjoyment. If you feel like you are in a constant battle with your bikini line, and are tired of spending endless amounts of money on waxing, then we have a solution that can help you get rid of that hair and walk onto the beach with confidence: laser hair reduction!
Laser hair reduction is a cosmetic treatment that has been around for a long while now, but there has been a tremendous amount of innovation in the last few years. It used to take forever for laser hair reduction to make a dent in really thick hair, requiring dozens of treatments even to thin it out. That’s thankfully a thing of the past, thanks to the Palomar Laser, an innovative technology that will give you much better results over time, while also greatly reducing the time required for treatment.
The Palomar Laser essentially emits concentrated light at your unwanted hair. This heats up the hair at the root, destroying the cells that generate new hair growth. Once those cells are gone, the hair follicle can no longer grow hair.
It used to be that laser hair reduction was a long, tedious process. Now, we can use the Palomar Laser applicator to treat large areas in record time! The Palomar Laser is safe for all skin types, all areas, and offers unparalleled comfort during treatment.
I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am that the stigma of cosmetic surgery has started to fall away for men. For years, men would come to our clinic and Medical Spa, almost embarrassed to be there. They’d be nervous and suspicious, like they were about to do something shady or under-the-table…
Not anymore! Now men confidently walk into our Medical Spa and say, “You going to use a laser to get rid of my body hair? Cool! Let’s do it!”
It isn’t only women who have issues about body hair. There are many men out there who feel self-conscious at the pool or the beach because of thick, dark back hair. With laser hair reduction, we can get rid of that back hair for them, giving them the confidence they need to head out to the beach shirtless and proud!
There is absolutely no difference between the treatment of men and women for laser hair reduction. With men, it may take a little longer because of the larger area that we need to cover. But with the new laser, it takes far less time than in years past. If we are treating your back, you could be in and out of the Medical Spa in just 20 minutes!
Even though there have been many advances in the area of laser hair reduction, a single treatment still won’t remove all your unwanted hair in one go, because of the natural growth cycle of hair. The laser can only destroy hairs at certain points of growth, so it can take up to eight treatments every six to eight weeks to reach your desired, smooth results. Although this does take us past the summertime, there’s still no time like the present because… we live in Florida where swimming and shorts are pretty much a year-round thing for us!
Along with laser hair reduction, we also offer a number of other laser treatments, like Fraxel Laser Skin Rejuvenation and Intense Pulsed Light, that focus on skincare. We offer a variety of fantastic skincare treatments in our Medical Spa, as well as both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that could really have you looking your absolute best on the beach!
