Are you sick and tired of constantly shaving? Or worse yet, forget to shave for a while and discover quite the stubble when you put on that dress?

Wymore Laser & Anti-Aging Medicine offers the finest in laser hair removal here in Orlando, Florida, and can help you get the smooth skin you only dreamed of.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal uses light energy to penetrate the hair shaft at its root, making it difficult for another hair to grow in the area where the laser removal treatment was applied. It doesn’t necessarily kill the hair follicles, but simply stunts and prevents growth to leave you with smoother skin for a longer period of time than shaving, waxing and tweezing. Plus, the new hair that eventually grows back will be finer and easier to maintain. Treatments typically only take about twenty minutes to perform on areas like the underarms or bikini area, and about an hour for the arms or legs. You will be saving yourself a lot of time and money in the long run too. You may not realize how much time is wasted on shaving and waxing, not to mention that the cost of waxing is increasing while the cost of laser hair removal is decreasing. The treatments will pay for themselves when you don’t have to constantly buy replacement razor blades and shaving cream.
Laser Hair Removal For Men (And Women!)
You can receive laser hair removal on any part of your body except for the inside of the ears and nose. That being said, it’s a perfect treatment option for both men and women who want to shed some hair on their troublesome areas. You will first meet with a laser hair removal specialist, who will help you determine the best course of action on tackling your hairy sites. You will most often require multiple treatments to achieve the full smoothing effects you want. Factors that will affect the number of treatments include:
- Thickness of hair
- Treatment area
- Your hair’s specific growth cycle
- Hormones & Genetics
- Current medications
Once a treatment plan is determined, your first laser hair removal in Orlando can begin! You will receive a pair of protective eyewear during the treatment, and your specialist will apply numbing cream to the areas getting the laser treatment. A short laser beam will then be shot at the root of the unwanted hair follicle. The laser pulses for a millisecond emitting a beam of light onto the skin. The laser and light energy doesn’t harm the skin or cause pain, but simply passes through the skin, becoming absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and hair shaft. This in essence disables the hair in its active growth stage during treatment.
After Your Orlando Laser Hair Removal
Treatments are typically given at four to six week intervals, as this is the natural growth cycle for hair. Avoid using any harsh exfoliating cleansers, scrubs, bleaching creams or retinoids on the treatment area for at least three days before and after the procedure. Also avoid prolonged sun exposure for two weeks before and after treatment, and be sure to apply sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher every two hours when you go out.
