Hair removal can be a tedious and uncomfortable routine. Traditional means of hair removal such as tweezing, shaving and waxing can be painful and last a few short days, at best. Laser hair removal, however, is an effective and pain-free treatment that can help men and women keep their skin smooth for an extended period of time. Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton is pleased to offer this advanced procedure to their cosmetic surgery patients to take the pain and tedium out of hair removal.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an advanced aesthetic procedure which uses laser technology to gently remove hair follicles, without doing any damage to the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal is a welcomed alternative to other hair removal methods and can be used on several parts of the body, including the arms, legs, back, chest, bikini line, underarms and more. For men and women who suffer from excessive hair growth, the procedure can be life-changing, and can give them a newfound sense of confidence.
Some of the other benefits of laser hair removal include:
- Pain-free treatment
- No downtime required
- Long-lasting results
- Few treatment sessions needed
- Precise treatment
- Fewer ingrown hairs than other hair removal methods
Who is a candidate?
Men and women who are over the age of 18 and are either unhappy with excessive hair growth or frustrated by the need for daily hair removal routines may consider laser hair removal as a more long-term solution. Though patients of all skin types can pursue treatment, the procedure works best on patients who have light skin and dark, coarse hair. Patients who suffer from skin disorders and those who are on certain medications may not be suitable for the procedure. It is important to disclose all medical conditions and medications to Dr. Cabrera prior to treatment so he can determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
The Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Laser hair removal is typically accomplished in three to six treatment sessions, though the amount of session needed will depend on how much hair is being removed. During the procedure, Dr. Cabrera applies a numbing cream to the area to promote patient comfort throughout the entire procedure. He then directs a laser at the skin, which heats and removes the hair follicle. Dr. Cabrera may go over the section several times to allow for optimal results. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Many patients who undergo laser hair removal in Boca Raton can experience the benefits of the procedure for up to four months.
