About Laser Hair Removal
Many men and women today are turning to laser treatments to say goodbye to unwanted hair on the face and body. In the Tampa office of dermatologist Dr. Milan Lombardi, we can achieve long lasting results on smaller areas like the chin, underarms, and bikini area using the excel V™ light therapy device.
For ages, we have turned to manual techniques to remove hair from places we wish to have smooth. Shaving, waxing, plucking, and now threading are common methods of hair removal. Although they achieve the goal, they do so only temporarily. If you have grown tired of the chore of removing hair from under your arms, your bikini area, your lip, or other small area of the face or body, you may find that your ideal solution is laser hair removal in the office of Dr. Milan Lombardi.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair through the delivery of photothermal energy. The wavelengths of our device are absorbed by individual hairs within hair follicles. More specifically, pigment, or color within hairs responds to light.
Because energy is absorbed only by pigment, no damage occurs to the skin on the treatment area.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Both laser and IPL, or intense pulsed light, can minimize the number and thickness of hairs on the face and body. IPL is more suited to smaller areas due to the wide filtered wavelength of light emitted by this type of device. Regardless of the type of device used, optimal results are achieved through a series of treatments.
During your consultation with Dr. Lombardi, we will be able to assess your skin and hair and estimate the number of treatments necessary to achieve long lasting results.
Misconceptions about Laser Hair Removal
One of the misconceptions about laser hair removal is that the skin will be forever silky smooth. In reality, there is no way to guarantee this. Invariably, a few hairs do tend to grow back here and there.
Though they are likely to be very thin and light in color, it is important to know that touch-up treatments may be necessary from time to time to keep skin looking the way you want.
