Want to have your hair permanently removed in Panama City Beach? Try our laser hair removal!
Laser hair removal reduces the need for shaving, which can leave your skin irritated and often results in unsightly stubble. It’s an advanced solution that frees you from razors, waxing and creams to get rid of the hair on your face and body and it gives you the convenience of ready-to-bare skin every day.
Laser is a clinically-proven technology that targets and destroys cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. It’s a simple approach to permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy and FDA cleared. Best of all, treatment sessions are quick.
Coastal Plastic Surgery Institute offers BroadBand Light and ClearScan Yag laser treatments. This allows us to treat all skin colors and most hair types. Light-based hair removal can work for most everyone. For women, it’s a great alternative to shaving, depilatory creams and waxing for reducing hair on the face and body, including delicate areas around the lips and the bikini line. For men, laser hair removal is great for permanently reducing neck, chest and back hair for the younger look you desire.
If you’re tired of constantly having to groom pesky, unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be for you. Call 850-233-7674 to schedule a private consultation today.
Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal
How does it work?
Light is used to target pigment and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue.
How long does it take?
Laser hair removal treatments take just a couple minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.
How many treatments will I need?
Several laser hair removal treatments are recommended for the best results. These treatments are spaced out 4-6 weeks to catch the hair in the active growth phase.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
You should shave the area the night before your treatment. This will leave just enough hair to show the growth pattern. NO waxing, plucking or depilatory creams for 6 weeks prior to having laser hair removal. We recommend shaving, even on the face. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.
What will the treatment feel like?
Patients can experience mild discomfort when undergoing laser hair removal. This feeling is best described as a small rubber band “snapping” against the skin.
Does it work on blonde hair?
Unfortunately, it does not. The laser is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and hair shaft. Pigments are the substances that give skin and hair its color.
How quickly will I recover and post treatment?
You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment. Patients should also avoid direct contact with the sun for at least three to six months following their laser hair removal procedure. Wearing sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 will help protect your skin from burning or dark discoloration.
