What is laser hair removal?

This hair removal method uses a laser to target and destroy follicles, the tiny sacs in your skin that hold your hairs and help them grow. The laser, or high-powered light, damages the follicles and inhibits hair growth. The effects are long-lasting, but they aren’t entirely permanent, so you need to return for maintenance appointments.

Luminary MD offers laser hair removal treatments with the Lightpod Neo™ laser, a safe and gentle laser that works faster than others like it. It’s also painless, eliminating the need for numbing gels and anesthetics.

What are the benefits of choosing laser hair removal?

There are many benefits to choosing laser hair removal over shaving and waxing. The benefits include:

  • Long-lasting results
  • Cost-effectiveness in the long term
  • Low maintenance
  • Versatility (You can get it anywhere on your body.)

Additionally, Dr. Milanes can perform laser hair removal on large areas of your body all at once. Even though you likely need multiple sessions, each session is fast enough for you to do it on your lunch break.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is generally safe, but it comes with a couple of potential side effects. Possible risks include:

  • Discomfort during the procedure
  • Skin irritation
  • Skin color changes
  • Blistering
  • Skin texture change

The side effects of laser hair removal are usually temporary, subsiding after a day or so after your session.

You can reduce your chances of experiencing negative side effects by carefully following Dr. Milanes’ instructions for preparation and aftercare. If you experience severe side effects like blistering or a change in your skin texture, call Luminary MD immediately.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

With the latest laser technologies, laser hair removal can work for anyone. Generally, however, it is most effective on patients whose hair is a darker color than their skin. This is because the laser works by targeting the pigments, or colors, in your hair.

If you have any skin disorders or take certain medications, Dr. Milanes may recommend you choose another method of hair removal to avoid skin irritation or rashes.

If you want to enjoy a smooth, hairless look without constantly buying razors and waxes, call or schedule a laser hair removal consultation online at Luminary MD today.
