LASER HAIR REMOVAL
AN INTRODUCTION TO PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
Ok, so you are ready to get those unwanted hairs that have been plaguing you your entire life, OUT OF HERE. Whether it be your legs, back, underarms or even facial hair, laser hair removal has proved to be a reliable option for many. But many questions remain in this field. How much does it cost? Does it really work? Will it work for me? Does it hurt? These are all questions people are left asking before making the move and the investment towards permanent hair removal using laser hair removal technology. Well this write-up is meant to take answer a lot of your questions and remove the cloud of mystery from the process that is laser hair removal.
THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCESS
To those folks who don’t know, the laser hair removal process involves going into a clinic that posses a machine with laser technology. You basically have to go every few weeks and full body treatments take about 60-90 minutes depending on the clinic, it may take longer. Women’s treatment tend to take less time than men’s treatments because their hair is thinner and less dense. A majority of clinics historically have only worked with people of lighter skin pigments and darker hair color. This is because old laser machines target dark pigment as a way of destroying the hair follicle that grows hair. As a result, men and women with dark skin simply did not qualify for the service. In addition you would have to remain OUT OF THE SUN for weeks before and after a laser hair removal treatment. Let’s talk about the laser hair removal process at a few of the Miami clinics we visited below.
MIAMI LASER HAIR REMOVAL
What we’ve learned about the laser hair removal process is that it’s just that, a process. When we went to Body Details in Midtown Miami we thought we were in for at least an enjoyable consultation. We were wrong. Their radio commercial includes a friendly jingle repping the brand name and then mentions a lifetime guarantee. Ok, well that sounds great, if I invest in laser hair removal I most definitely don’t want that shit growing back. So we made an appointment and got to it. After waiting in the waiting room for a good 20-30 minutes, (we were told there won’t be a wait) we expected an analysis of the hair on our body. We expected this because this is why we were told we couldn’t get quoted over the phone. Well I’m not an expert in the laser hair removal process or the business so i thought, fair enough, let’s go in.
THE BODY DETAILS SALES PROCESS
It was at this point that I entered the private room with the clinician / sales person and expected her to examine the areas I desired hair removal from. There was none of this. She basically circled the areas I wanted removed on a piece of paper and then quoted me. But this was only prior to her telling me that I’d have to stay out of the sun for 1-2 weeks before and after treatments or risk skin damage. The type of damage was described as damage to the skin’s pigmentation. Well I obviously wanted to no part in that. But no way, it get’s better, I needed 15-20 sessions to successfully permanently remove hair from my chest, abs, neck and a little bit of what was on my back.
The grand total was $17,000!!! That was with the 70% discount advertised on the radio. In addition, the process was to take about 2 years because you can’t have the sessions in succession, they need to be spread apart. LMAO! No.
LASER FACIAL BEAUTY CLINIC
It was a few months later that I found what I thought to be the Best Miami Laser Hair removal clinic in South Florida. The business at hand is Laser Facial Beauty Clinic in North Miami Beach serving Sunny Isles, Bal Harbor and Aventura. In fact, they recently opened a location in downtown Coral Gables as well. The owner there George is a very nice guy. When I spoke to him and his wife Angie, who is the expert clinician and who you would be working with, they laughed when I explained my experience to them at their competitor.
HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS AT LASER FACIAL BEAUTY CLINIC
So what makes the laser hair removal process different at Laser Facial Beauty Clinic? Well initially, they invested in the best laser hair removal technology the industry has to offer. That comes from Alma Lasers’ Soprano ICE Premium machinery. Their website claims they were able to achieve clearance of 95% of stubborn hairs in just 3-4 sessions. Now I know going to Alma Lasers’ website for reviews can be a bit unsubstantiated, but it’s a good place to start doing your research and then see if things line up when you gather other information from the internet.
HOW MANY SESSIONS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL DO I NEED?
Well, I guess that depends on how many body parts you are getting done and how hairy you are. Hah. At Laser Facial Beauty Clinic, you can get a full body session done in about 60 minutes, which is pretty crazy to be in and out the door so quickly. Especially when comparing the treatment times of other local Miami clinics. Laser Facial Beauty clinic sells packages in 6 sessions and membership discounts apply. You can call up to get quotes for small areas, large areas, etc but their full body treatment goes for just $1,980 with an addition $200 discount going to members. Now will you need 6 sessions to get fully rid of the hair? Eh, Probably not they say about 9-10 for some, it really does vary. So at this point I would suggest giving Angie and George a call if you are serious about getting the procedure done to see what they can do for you.
DARK SKIN PIGMENTS
This is where Laser Facial Beauty Clinic changes the game. Other clinics have you stay out of the sun for WEEKS and can’t treat people with dark skin. This includes dark Latinas, African-Americans, anyone with dark skin Tommyboy… Haha ok. So at Laser Facial Beauty clinic, dark skin pigments ARE allowed in fact there is absolutely no problem working with those types of clients. That is also why you are able to stay in the sun. It is however, recommended that you avoid sun exposure a day or 2 before you treatment.
