3 Amazing Benefits to Laser Hair Removal

Every few years a new kind of cosmetic procedure becomes trendy and everyone rushes to get it only for it to become a fad. When it comes to laser hair removal, this is not the case. Laser hair removal has maintained its status throughout the years as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It usually starts with someone coming in to treat a small area such as the underarms, then after a few sessions, they love the results and decide to come in for other areas of the body.  The results truly speak for themselves, and the best part is, the results are permanent hair loss that lasts for years to come. With this procedure, you can kiss the painful days of waxing, shaving, and tweezing hair goodbye. No longer will you have to book appointments for waxing and run to the store for a new razor. The benefits to the procedure do not stop at hair removal though; there are various reasons why so many people swear by laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery Center. Interested in changing the way you remove hair? Check out some of the awesome benefits below to learn more about how laser hair removal can change your life.


  1.   Saves Money and Time

Laser hair removal costs a larger amount of money upfront; however, in the long run, you will notice how much money you save on waxing appointments, razors, and shaving cream. Just like anything worth having, it’s an initial investment, but on the bright side, you will begin to notice hair loss after the first few sessions and can already reduce your use of waxing and razors. Not only does laser hair removal save money, but it also saves a large chunk of time. This might be more applicable to women rather than men but regardless, shaving and waxing are extremely time-consuming. When you get the laser procedure done on your body it may take as long as shaving the area would; however, you only have to laser the area around 7 times as opposed to having to shave or wax 7 times a month or even a week.


  1.   No Ingrown Hairs or Razor Bumps

Ingrown hairs are the absolute worst. They can be painful, hard to get rid of, and can look unsightly. When you go through laser hair removal you will never have to deal with ingrown hairs as frequently as you would have when using shaving or waxing. This is also a great procedure for those who suffer from sensitive skin. We all know the pain of shaving only to find that the entire area is covered in razor bumps. Razor bumps can be itchy and at times even painful, add on the fact that they make shaving seem like it was a waste of time. With laser hair removal you do not have to worry about any kind of bumps or rashes in the long-term, you may have a slight sunburn effect after a session but it is very temporary.

  1.   You Don’t Need to Grow Hair

This benefit is a big one for those who get their body waxed every couple of weeks. The first thing they tell you when you go to book a waxing appointment is that your hair needs to be a certain length. This can be frustrating especially if you have plans coming up and want smooth legs or arms but the hair isn’t long enough yet to be treated. With laser hair removal you are told to shave between 12 and 24 hours before your appointment, allowing you to be nice and smooth even while waiting to be treated.

At Take Shape Plastic Surgery we offer an extensive amount of cosmetic services including laser hair removal. If you think getting the laser procedure could benefit you then you should give us a call and get your consultation appointment booked. At this appointment you can learn more about what to expect and whether or not this procedure is right for you. Our specialists are experts in all things laser guaranteeing that you will be in good hands. Contact us today at (954) 324-2329 to start your journey to a hair-free life.

How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is an FDA approved treatment that has been around since 1997. The laser used focuses a concentrated beam of light that uses heat to destroy the hair follicle and assists in future hair growth. It’s actually less painful than waxing for most. When performed by one of our licensed medical professionals at Take Shape Plastic Surgery, you can rest assured that you are in good hands. Laser hair removal will free you from a burden that has frustrated you to no end for years. We use the most advanced laser on the market because our patients’ comfort is our number one priority. Before you know it, your legs will be as smooth as silk!

What can I expect from laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is safe and effective. Optimal results are almost always guaranteed when performed by a licensed medical professional. And at Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we use the highest quality lasers and most experienced medical professionals to perform the procedure.
Laser hair removal requires a few treatments. Laser hair removal does require a few sessions to get the smooth and supple result you want. That’s not really a big commitment when you think of the end result—hair-free legs and underarms for a much longer period of time than waxing or shaving can yield.

Laser works best with dark coarse hair. Lasers target the color of hair, so it’s not uncommon for the laser to work best on the “darker” hairs it can target first. Laser hair removal is not always permanent. While some people do achieve lifetime results with laser hair removal, it’s not uncommon for some hairs to grow back.

Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?

It’s summertime in Fort Lauderdale, and that means spending more time at the beach, pool and outside in general. To beat the heat we wear bathing suits, shorts, and sun dresses that expose our delicate parts. So, what about that unwanted fuzz on our legs and unsightly bikini line or underarm hair? Having to worry about shaving, tweezing, or waxing day in and day out can be irritating – especially in the bikini area! Not to mention the ingrown hairs! If the annoyance of daily shaving has got you down, then don’t despair – there is another way. Laser hair removal is a great, safe choice, and it’s so popular today. The medical experts at Take Shape Plastic Surgery are always on hand for a consultation, and can tell you everything you need to know about laser hair removal and more.

Here are Some of the Reasons Why You Should Try Laser Hair Removal:

Minimal Side Effects to Feel Great and Hair-Free

There are virtually no cons to laser hair removal because there are no side effects. In fact, laser hair removal is so precise that the laser targets hairs right down to the follicle to stop growth in its tracks.

It’s Very Cost-Effective

If you add up how many disposable razors, shaving cream, depilatory creams or waxing sessions you’ve had, you’d be surprised at the amount of money you actually spend on these items per year. Now you can say good riddance to unpredictable razors that can cut you, and painful waxing torture.

Bye-Bye Ingrown Hairs 

One of the worst things women have to deal with are ingrown hairs! With laser hair removal you no longer have to shave, tweeze, wax, or thread, which can all cause painful ingrown hairs. And you will no longer have to tolerate razor burns, unsightly redness, or irritation.

Fast Treatments

Depending on the area being treated, you are likely to see results within the first couple of weeks. At this point, you’ll love the fact that you don’t have to shave anymore!

Effective Treatment

Laser hair removal does take a few sessions to achieve maximum results. Most patients achieve permanent hair loss within three to five weeks, so that cost-effective savings is realized pretty quickly. Just think, in just three weeks you will be hair-free and shaving will be a thing of the past.

Laser Hair Removal is So Easy 

The laser hair removal procedure is not completely pain free; It is like a tiny pinch. And, just think—for just a short amount of time invested, you will never have to shave again for the rest of your life!

Laser Hair Removal at Take Shape Plastic Surgery

You yank them out any which way, and next thing you know you have to do it all over again.  Liberate yourself from daily shaving, plucking and waxing with the latest innovation in Laser Hair Removal. Take Shape Plastic Surgery uses a revolutionary technology that has been described as one of the most comfortable and effective hair removal options available.

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair. It is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. The primary reason that laser hair removal is so successful is because of “selective photothermolysis (SPTL)”. SPTL is the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue.

Laser hair removal has actually been around since 1997, when the FDA approved it. It has become increasingly popular because it’s fast, effective, and prevents hair from growing back. This allows you to spend less time getting ready in the morning when you don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing treatment.

Just before the procedure, hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color. Every pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs all at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour. 90% of patients have significant hair loss reduction after an average of six sessions.
