Unwanted hair on your face or body can be frustrating, but the good news is you don’t have to live with it forever. Patients who visit Clevens Face and Body Specialists now have the opportunity to enjoy smooth, silky skin thanks to our highly advanced laser hair removal in Merritt Island & Melbourne FL.
The Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Each laser hair removal session at Clevens Face and Body Specialists is performed in a private, relaxing treatment room at our Melbourne or Merritt Island offices. Depending on the areas being treated, your session will last from 15 to 60 minutes. Although the treatment is not uncomfortable, patients sometimes report a slight pinching or burning sensation during each pulse of laser energy. You’ll be encouraged to shave immediately prior to your laser hair removal session, making the procedure more comfortable.
The unique laser handpiece stays chilled, helping to keep discomfort to a minimum. While no anesthesia is required during treatment, a topical numbing cream can be used before the laser hair removal session, if needed, for your comfort. During your treatment, you can also opt for Clevens Comfort+, which is a safe, self-administered inhalant (similar to laughing gas) that helps you relax during your session.
To begin, the target area will be determined, and you will be comfortably positioned and provided with protective eye gear. Next, our experienced laser specialist will gently glide the laser hair removal handpiece across your skin. With each pass, brief pulses of concentrated laser energy are delivered to the hair follicles. As soon as the area has been treated, you can return to your normal routine.
