Laser hair removal - Q&A

  • How does laser hair removal work?

    The laser hair removal system emits an invisible beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed for only a fraction of a second effectively damaging the follicle, while the systems unique, patented cooling system, sprays cryogen to protect the skin and minimize discomfort during the laser hair removal procedure.

  • Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

    The laser hair removal system emits an invisible beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed for only a fraction of a second effectively damaging the follicle, while the systems unique, patented cooling system, sprays cryogen to protect the skin and minimize discomfort during the laser hair removal procedure.

  • How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

    6 laser hair removal sessions is the average but some individuals can require as little as 3 sessions to as many as 8 sessions or more. The exact number of laser hair removal sessions required will vary depending on a multitude of factors; hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. For the laser to work it has to catch the hair in its growth cycle. Since not all hairs are growing at the same time, various sessions are necessary to disable all of the hair follicles.

  • How much does laser hair removal cost?

    Prices for laser hair removal vary depending on many factors such as hair scarcity and the individual needs of each patient. Also discounts are available for a package of multiple treatments. If you’re in Miami call Dermalaser at Doral for a free, no obligation consultation at 305-333-7605 and we will help tailor a specific laser hair removal treatment package for you.

  • Is laser hair removal painful?

    Advances in laser technology have made the laser hair removal procedure almost pain-free. Our lasers blast cryogen on each pulse to protect the skin and minimize discomfort. However, everyone’s pain tolerance is different, compared to waxing the treatment has very little discomfort. Some people have described it as the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. If you do find your laser hair removal treatment uncomfortable, Dermalaser can prescribe a numbing cream for the skin.

  • Are there any laser hair removal risks or side effects?

    Laser hair removal is an in and out procedure with no down time. Our patients in Miami can return to work or play immediately. Done correctly by a certified technician there are very little side effects. Some patients may experience redness, swelling, a tingling feeling or numbness, but the risks are very low. As with any procedure, Dermalaser in Doral provides an informed consent that explains all the possible risks associated with laser hair removal.

  • What’s the best type of laser for laser hair removal?

    There are various types of lasers on the market for laser hair removal. Make sure your facility uses a laser from a leading manufacturer with proven results. At Dermalaser we only use lasers from Candela and Syneron, the leaders in the industry to provide you with the safest and best possible results. Also many medical spas and day spas in Miami and Doral try and sell IPL for laser hair removal treatments; these are not true lasers making them less effective and more painful for laser hair removal.

  • What is the difference between IPL and Lasers?

    IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light and is not a true laser or the best method for laser removal. IPL’s are very effective for certain cosmetic procedures, but our experience has shown that using a true laser is safer, faster and more effective for laser hair removal.

  • What if I just want to reduce hair density in a certain area?

    Then Laser hair removal is the only way to go! In fact, other than electrolysis, laser hair removal is the only hair removal treatment that allows for thinning, rather than complete removal. In Miami and Doral we get this request when performing laser hair removal for men, who many times just what the hairs on arms, legs and chest thinned out, not removed.

  • How does Laser Hair Removal compare with other hair removal methods?

    Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods that must be repeated on a frequent basis and none of those methods can successfully reduce ingrown hairs. By eliminating the hair follicle, Laser Hair Removal offers permanent hair reduction and treatment of ingrown hairs for lasting results.

  • Is laser hair removal permanent?

    Laser hair removal offers the best combination of effective hair reduction and minimal fuss, but while it is quite effective, it is not completely permanent. Hair growing back at some point is still possible, whether it's a reduced amount, finer version, or combination of both. Touch up treatments may be necessary once every year or two.

  • Does Laser Hair Removal work on tanned/different skin colors?

    Since we live in Miami, this is a great question. At Dermalaser, we can safely and effectively perform laser hair removal on all skin types, evened tanned skin for both men and women. Our state of the art laser, the Candela GentleYAG, is specifically designed for treating darker skin tones. However, having laser hair removal performed on darker skin requires an experienced licensed specialist using the appropriate treatment parameters to avoid damaging the epidermis; Dermalaser recommends you always check your provider’s qualifications and licenses and what laser are they are using. If you have darker skin, (brown, black, tanned) make sure your provider has a YAG laser to reduce the risk burns and complications.
