Laser Hair Removal in Miami
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a medical process that involves using pulsing beams of intense light to remove hair on the legs, arms, face, and other areas where hair is not wanted. Laser hair removal works by damaging hair follicles beneath the skin and inhibiting future hair growth. While the process is highly effective to slow hair growth, it could take multiple laser hair removal sessions to show results. At the Skin Center of South Miami, we use the latest hair removal technologies, including the new New LightSheer™ Diode Laser, a highly effective hair removal treatment that is faster, more reliable, and more comfortable than other standard hair removal methods.
LightSheer™ Diode Laser
With the LightSheer™ diode laser treatment, a laser creates a concentrated form of light that is absorbed by the pigments found in your hair follicles, known as melanin. This kind of laser only pulses for less than a second to vaporize the melanin and disable the hair follicles and impede their ability to re-grow. Because this laser only pulses for a moment, it does not do any damage to the surrounding skin tissues. Additionally, the LightSheer™ diode laser has a special cooling handpiece that preserves your upper layer of skin and allows for deeper laser treatment for a better hair removal result.
Why is laser hair removal used?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment option for reducing and removing hair from almost any area of your body, with the exception of the eye area. Some of the most common areas of unwanted hair that can be treated using laser hair removal include the following:
- Bikini line

What does laser hair removal involve?
At the Skin Center of South Miami, laser hair removal treatment can be done during a short office visit. The treatment itself is quick and causes little discomfort.
