Trying something new and unfamiliar can make us feel reluctant, but there is no need to feel anxious about laser hair removal! With the experts at Fountain of You, you will feel comfortable and cared for as you undergo your laser hair removal treatment and experience beautiful, smooth skin!
Fountain of You Offers 2 Types of Hair Removal:
1. Traditional Laser Hair Removal
We use the newest hair removal laser from Lumenis, the Splendor X. The benefit of this laser is that it is less painful than previous lasers and also offers optimal hair removal no matter your skin type or time of year. Another benefit of our laser is that it uses a grid pattern and a rapid repetition rate that makes the process substantially faster and without any overlap. It will still take multiple treatments to achieve complete hair removal as hair grows at different rates. However, you will see some immediate results!
2. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light is primarily used as one of our anti-aging treatments as it improves the texture and tone of the skin. IPL treatment is performed using a hand-held device that delivers highly concentrated light pulses. It is not considered a laser removal technique. However, it can be used for hair removal and is virtually painless. It may take more sessions than our Splendor X laser and may not be as effective. At your consultation, you can discuss which method is best for your needs. And, if you choose to go with the laser removal technique, remember that IPL is fantastic for treating skin issues such as sun damage, broken blood vessels and capillaries, and hyperpigmentation. So, it still may be an aesthetic service that interests you!

How Do I Know if Laser Hair Removal Is Right for Me?
Any aesthetic or anti-aging treatment is a very personal decision. Nobody can or should make that decision for you. However, some people are better candidates than others, so let’s take a closer look at that.
If shaving irritates your skin, then laser hair removal may be a good alternative for you. Many people suffer from “razor bumps” or skin irritation known as “razor burn.” Additionally, for men who suffer from acne, shaving can be a painful process that can also cause bleeding and open sores. Laser hair removal may be exactly the remedy you have been seeking.
Laser hair removal is also a great choice for people who are excessively hairy. For women, this may include facial hair. For men, it may include back hair. Anywhere that hair can grow, you may experience an excess of it. If this is the case and it bothers you, then laser hair removal may be the answer.
Living in Florida where swimsuits, tank tops, and shorts are common attire, excessive hair is more noticeable than in places where the weather doesn’t allow for such wear year-round. So, even where you live can affect your desire to pursue laser hair removal.
Is There Anyone Who Shouldn’t Get Laser Hair Removal?
As with any procedure, there are always situations in which a procedure may not be best suited for you. For example, if your skin pigment seems to change easily, then laser hair removal may not be advisable. However, our laser uses two wavelengths and is suitable for most skin types! It is usually recommended to wait for laser hair removal if you are pregnant.
