Laser hair removal is a much more cost-effective and painless way to remove unwanted body hair than waxing or shaving. However, the quality of laser hair removal clinics vary greatly and there are many things you should consider before selecting one in the Delray Beach area. 

1. What type of laser hair removal is best for you – e.g., full body, bikini line

The type of laser hair removal that is best for you is really a combination of preference and area that bothers you the most. Some men and women will notice razor bumps on their skin after shaving certain areas of their bodies. This would be a good area to be treated to avoid razor bumps all together. Additionally, some areas of the body are prone to growing hair back faster, like the bikini area or under the arms. These are two common places to get laser hair removal to avoid having to constantly shave/wax  that area of the body multiple times a week. Although, ultimately,  you have the choice of where you would like to permanently remove unwanted hair. 

2.How many treatments will be needed to see results

At Dash Medical Spa in Delray Beach, we have seen results in our clients a month after their first session, but generally at least 6 sessions are needed to maximize results. With each treatment, the actively growing hair follicle is destroyed. Less blood flows to the follicle, and the hair that does grow back will gradually become weaker and thinner.

While your hair won’t always fall out immediately, it will eventually get there. Some hairs are ejected as soon as they’re lasered, while others can continue to grow and fall out over time.

3. What are the risks and side effects associated with laser hair removal

For a day or two after being treated, the  area of your skin could  look and feel like it’s sunburned. Cool compresses and moisturizers may help. If your face was treated, you can wear makeup the next day unless your skin is blistering.

Over the next month, your treated hair will fall out. Wear sunscreen for the following month to help prevent temporary changes in the color of the treated skin.

Blisters are rare but are more likely in people with darker complexions. Other potential side effects are swelling, redness, and scarring. Permanent scarring or changes in skin color are rare.

4. Cost of treatment – how much does it cost,  what is included in that price and will my insurance cover it?

There are many variables that determine the cost of laser hair removal: type and color of hair, size of the area to be treated, how many sessions are required. Typically, multiple treatments are needed, usually between five and eight, depending on area and length of growth cycle. Dash Medical Spa in South Florida offers treatment packages of 6 starting at $399. A further consultation with our Delray Beach laser specialist is needed to determine the number of sessions you will need which will determine the exact pricing.

For Insurance, Laser Hair Removal is an elective procedure and is not covered by insurance. However, Dash Medical Spa offers Care Credit to clients who would not like to pay in full. 

5. How should I prepare for a laser Hair Removal Treatment 

Our providers at Dash Medical Spa In Delray Beach  advise that you stop waxing, tweezing, or plucking hair you want to remove for two to six weeks before your appointment, though shaving is fine. You should also avoid UV exposure during the month before your treatment, including that from tanning beds and self-tanning lotions.

Within 48 hours of your appointment, shave the area that’s being lasered using a clean, new blade. This helps the laser light locate your hair follicles.

6. Does the clinic offer financing options or payment plans so that costs aren’t as high upfront

Dash Medical Spa in Delray beach offers Care Credit. The CareCredit Card is a health and beauty credit card that allows you to spread out the cost of treatments, with payments as low as $150 a month. CareCredit offers a 12-month payment plan with no interest.

7. What is the process of Laser Hair Removal like and how long does it take?

Smaller areas like the upper lip, ears, chin can be treated in less than a minute, while large areas like the back or legs can take up to an hour. First, your provider will determine what laser setting is best for your skin and hair, as well as your goals. Tell them about any medications you’re taking, as well as any medical conditions.

You’ll need to put on special eye protection so the laser light doesn’t damage your eyes. During the treatment, the laser emits a concentrated beam of light to damage the hair follicle and prevent regrowth. While your provider methodically treats one small area at a time, you may feel mild discomfort, like a warm pinprick or snap, as the laser passes over your skin.

 

As you can see, there are a lot of factors to consider when deciding which type of laser hair removal is best for your needs. And if price isn’t on the top of your list, it should be – because even though this procedure may seem expensive upfront, many clinics offer financing options and payment plans so that costs aren’t as high upfront. If you need help choosing or would like an expert opinion about whether laser treatment is right for you based on what we’ve discussed here today, let us know. We’re happy to answer any questions and provide some helpful advice!

IPL stands for “Intense Pulsed Light,” IPL Skin Revitalization is one of the most effective treatments for smoothing out skin tone and texture and can help treat a variety of different skin conditions. This laser treatment will decrease the appearance of brown spots and vessels for a more even skin tone. 

The IPL treatment is designed to activate the skin’s natural healing processes without actually harming delicate dermal tissue. IPL therapy should not cause scarring, infection, or other complications when administered by a qualified provider. At Dash Medical Spa we use the best FDA approved Icon Laser Hair. Dash Medical Spa is one of the few providers of the Icon platform in the Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach areas. In addition to IPL therapy, only the Icon Laser can perform a Three For Me which is a proven way to solve wrinkles, sun damage and facial veins all at the same time. 

  1. IPL Photofacials are a great way to treat sun-damaged skin. Overtime, sunlight breaks down the collagen in our skin which makes it weaker and appear more saggy. Additionally, sun damage causes dark spots. IPL can treat these and generate a significant amount of new collagen to replace the previous destroyed skin. 
  2. IPL Photofacials are an efficient way to treat stubborn acne and acne scars. IPL can also kill harmful bacteria and reduces redness and inflammation. Repeated IPL photofacials encourage the skin to shed and renew its outer layer, a process that gradually eliminates scar tissue.
  3. IPL Photofacials can eliminate veins and capillaries and Rosacea. Our patients use the IPL photofacial to dissolve broken capillaries and spider veins for a more even, youthful complexion. This procedure is also ideal for treating conditions that cause diffuse redness, like rosacea.
  4. Frequent IPL Photofacials can prevent premature skin aging. 
  5. IPL pairs well with Injectables like Botox or Dysport. Botox can reduce wrinkles in areas photofacials can’t treat, like the region around the eyes. Dermal fillers enhance the lifting effect of IPL therapy by replacing facial volume that’s been lost with age. 
  6. IPL photofacials are powerful enough to access deep levels of the dermis without harming it. Therefore, there is very little downtime. The treatment lasts about an hour and you can return to work in 1-2 days. 
  7. IPL photofacial is a less costly alternative to Laser Skin Resurfacing. 
  8. IPL photofacial can almost double with a laser hair removal treatment. Clients with lighter skin tones can use IPL to remove hair from large areas. IPL hair removal works by targeting the melanin in hair follicles, causing hair shafts to heat up. This heat damages targeted hair follicles, preventing hair growth.
