Laser hair removal is the most effective way to rid your body of unwanted hair. The pigment in your skin absorbs a concentrated laser beam that effectively stops the growth of hair. Laser hair removal can be done on virtually any surface of the body and has been proven to have long term efficacy. Generally speaking, it may take a few sessions in order to complete the procedure and this will vary from individual to individual. The process is quick and painless and something we specialize in at Fountain of You in Melbourne, FL. Our professionals utilize the LightSheer INFINITY allowing for the use two different wavelengths of light on the skin.

We know that any medical procedure can bring with it a big case of the nerves. We never want our clients to go into laser hair removal feeling unnerved or with any unanswered questions. This is why we always schedule a consultation prior to beginning the first steps of hair removal. If you are considering laser hair removal in Melbourne or have already scheduled your appointment, please read on for tips on how to prepare for this life changing experience.
You have taken the first step by seeking the advice of a professional. Laser hair removal should ALWAYS be performed by a medical professional. The Mayo Clinic advises that the medical professional in question be board certified. This is simply to ensure that the procedure is done correctly and follows specific guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of you, the patient.
When you are prepping for laser hair removal, be sure that you stay out of the sun and away from tanning products. If you have recently been exposed to the sun or are sporting a beachy tan, wait until it all fades before beginning hair removal. This will prevent skin lightening. You also want to avoid any other hair removal before surgery. This means no waxing before your appointment. If you pluck unwanted hairs, you need to stop this before the first session. It is also wise to discontinue use of any skin products using retinol before having laser hair removal as products containing these ingredients can cause an increase in skin sensitivity.
