Advanced Aesthetics’ Unique approach to laser hair removal

When you’re fed up with constantly removing embarrassing body hair from your face, legs, or bikini line, it’s time to consider laser hair removal. This advanced process is much more convenient than time-consuming methods like applying creams or plucking individual hairs. You can say goodbye to the days of razor burn and hot wax. By visiting Advanced Aesthetics Med Spa of Ocala, you can get the laser hair removal treatment you’ve always wanted.

At Advanced Aesthetics, we use the Candela GentleLase Pro technique to eliminate hair without any hassle. This is a laser-based treatment that gently destroys targeted hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin.



How Does Laser Hair Removal With the Candela GentleLase Pro Work?

In most cases, you’ll have a pain-free laser hair removal experience with the Candela GentleLase Pro. At worst, you’ll feel a mildly unpleasant sensation akin to having a small rubber band snapped against your skin.

The laser hair removal process begins when one of our trained technicians holds a small handheld laser up to your treatment area. The laser emits a cooling burst to soothe and numb your skin. Then it releases a controlled amount of light energy, which passes through your skin and directly into the hair follicle. This energy damages the follicle and prevents hair from growing back in the same place. After the laser pulse is complete, our technician will deliver another cooling burst to your skin, relieving any discomfort lingering from the procedure.

Throughout the entire treatment, your surrounding tissue is completely unaffected. This means that you don’t have to worry about scabbing, scarring, or excessive recovery time. Generally, you’ll be done with a laser hair removal treatment in under an hour. Smaller areas, such as your underarms or bikini line, can be finished within as little as 10 minutes. Larger areas, including your arms or legs, may take up to 30 minutes. At our Ocala location, you can have multiple areas treated at once to get the hair-free look you desire.

What are the benefits of getting Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

As one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed at Advanced Aesthetics in Ocala, laser hair removal is not only effective at eliminating unwanted body hair, but it also provides patients with less daily personal maintenance. Other benefits include:

  • Precision – laser hair removal is very precise and will leave the surrounding skin unharmed as it targets unwanted hair.
  • Versatile – this cosmetic procedure can be used in many areas of the body, including the face, legs, chin, arms, back, underarms, and bikini line.
  • Predictable – because laser hair removal is so effective and predictable, most patients experience permanent hair loss after 3-7 sessions.
  • Fast – one laser hair removal treatment can be completed in under an hour, depending on the area to be treated. For instance, smaller areas such as the upper lip can be completed in just minutes, so this treatment is a great procedure to have over your lunch break!

What is the Cost of Laser Hair Removal?

The cost of laser hair removal depends on the area you choose to have treated and how many sessions you will require to achieve your desired results. Before choosing laser hair removal, be sure to schedule an appointment with one of our professionals for a one-on-one consultation. During your first visit, our technician will evaluate the area you wish to treat and talk with you about a treatment plan that will suit your needs in order to determine your individualized price.


So, Is Laser Hair Removal Ideal for Me?

Thanks to the versatility of the Candela GentleLase Pro, laser hair removal is a great solution for almost everyone in Ocala. However, before deciding if laser hair removal is ideal for you, it is important to understand that several factors need to be considered to determine a patient’s candidacy.

Because the laser that is used in this procedure is designed to target the melanin in the hair, the color of your hair and your skin type truly impact how effective your treatment—and your results—will be.

Patients in Ocala who have dark, coarse hair and lighter skin are ideal candidates for laser hair removal. But remember, the advanced technology used at Advanced Aesthetics can be customized to target a variety of hair and skin types, so be sure to visit our professionals for an initial consultation to determine whether or not laser hair removal is right for you.

It’s perfect for:

  • Those who have dark, coarse hair
  • Those with more contract between their hair and skin tone
  • Those who want to target large areas of the body
  • Groupings of hair that need to be permanently removed, rather than the individual troublesome hairs

Who it may not be for:

  • Those who have light, fine hair
  • Those who want to remove hair that is close to the eyes
  • Those who have skin rashes, infections, or open wounds

What If I am Pregnant?

There is no substantial evidence to prove that harm could potentially come to the baby or mother if she has laser hair removal treatment. As a precaution during pregnancy, however, the professionals at Advanced Aesthetics recommend pregnant women wait until after childbirth to choose this cosmetic treatment.

How old do I have to be to get laser hair removal treatment?

While there is no legal minimum age to receive laser hair removal treatment, Advanced Aesthetics recommends teens wait until they are at least 14 years old and have completed puberty. Additionally, females should wait for this cosmetic treatment until they have started their menstrual cycle.


Laser Hair Removal Treatment Process Explained

Laser hair removal treatment is customized to meet the needs of each individual patient. When you meet with our skilled and experienced staff, they will determine if you are a candidate for laser hair removal and decide on your individualized treatment plan based on your skin and hair type.

What should I do in preparation?

Because the laser targets the roots of the hair being treated, it is important that Ocala patients limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for at least six weeks prior to their session to prepare for laser hair removal treatment. Additionally, be sure to avoid sun exposure for six weeks before treatment.

How long does the session usually last?

Most hair removal treatments will be completed in under one hour. However, smaller areas like the underarms, bikini line, or upper lip can be completed within 10 minutes. If you choose to have larger areas treated, such as your arms, legs, or back, your session will take between 30 minutes to 1 hour.

What does laser hair removal feel like? Does it hurt?

For many patients, laser hair removal is a pain-free experience. Not only will our technicians apply a numbing cream to your treatment area to help reduce the sensation from the laser, but the Candela GentleLase Pro is a notably gentle laser. At the most, patients may notice a mild sting, similar to a pinch or rubber band pop.

What should I expect after laser hair removal treatment?

It will take approximately one month for your treatment area to lose the targeted hair after your laser hair removal treatment. Patients should expect their skin to look slightly reddened, and they may feel as though they have a sunburn. To help reduce this feeling, our skilled and experienced staff recommends applying cold compresses to the treatment area.

How many more treatments will I need after my initial?

Every treatment plan is unique, so how many treatment sessions you will require will depend on your specific needs, skin type, and hair type. When you visit our skilled and experienced staff for your initial consultation, they will develop a treatment plan, which will outline the recommended number of sessions needed to achieve your goals.


How Long Will It Take to See Laser Hair Removal Results?

You can expect to see smooth, hairless skin within about two weeks of your initial laser hair removal treatment. However, you should plan for more than a single treatment in order to completely eradicate hair growth. During your initial consultation, our skilled staff at Advanced Aesthetics will ensure that your treatment package encompasses all of the appointments you’ll need.

Once your treatment is complete and your unwanted hair is removed, the results will be permanent. Hair should never grow back in the treated parts of your body. However, in the rare event that you do notice any recurring hair growth, Advanced Aesthetics will be here to handle a quick touch-up appointment.

Other Things to Consider Before Getting Laser Hair Removal

Before choosing to have laser hair removal, it is important to understand that this procedure should only be performed by a licensed professional, like those at Advanced Aesthetics in Ocala. Only those with professional training and experience with this type of cosmetic procedure have a full understanding of safely and effectively removing unwanted hair. Remember, this is a laser. You want to be sure the right person wields the power.

Are there any risks or side effects involved?

Getting a laser hair removal treatment at our Ocala location is both safe and convenient. This is a medically approved process with only rare side effects. When these do occur, they tend to be mild. For example, you may experience a mild post-treatment discomfort similar to sunburn. This can be treated with aloe or hydrocortisone creams and typically goes away within one day. In even rarer cases, you might see changes in pigmentation. Fortunately, these darker patches also typically fade with time.

Is it really worth it?

This decision will ultimately fall on each individual and should be based on personal preference. If you are troubled by unwanted hair on your body and are tired of constantly having to keep it maintained, laser hair removal is definitely worth it.

What about home lasers? Are they as effective?

At-home laser hair removal devices are overall ineffective. They do not work as well as professional lasers because they are not as powerful and precise as in-office treatments. And while they may work on small areas of hair, they are not effective on all hair types or skin tones. Additionally, at-home laser hair removal devices come with more risks, such as burns, blisters, or scars.
