One of the most common cosmetic complaints from people of all ages is dealing with unwanted hair. It can be frustrating when hair re-grows, as it means the new hair must get removed by shaving, waxing, or plucking it away.
Regular hair removal has become part of many people’s daily and weekly routines, and it consumes a lot of time. Fortunately, there’s a cosmetic procedure that eradicates unwanted hair and promises long-term results.
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment offered by The Refinery Medspa & Wellness from our office in West Melbourne, FL. Our professional team of qualified skincare experts can provide laser hair removal treatments tailored specifically to your needs.

You might be wondering how laser hair removal works and whether it’s a safe cosmetic procedure for hair reduction. In a nutshell, the process involves using a medically-approved system to damage and destroy hair follicles. We use the Candela GentleMax Pro laser.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment where concentrated beams of light target specific areas, leaving your skin unharmed. The process is entirely safe, quick to carry out, and offers excellent results.
Clients can opt for laser hair removal in various areas of their bodies. Examples include the face, neck, arms,bikini, back, legs, and chest.
One of the questions we often get asked is whether laser hair removal is a permanent solution or not.
Hair grows at different rates on the body, even within the same area. With that in mind, clients should ideally have several treatment sessions. Otherwise, they might find that hair could grow back in a few places.
Many clients report a permanent eradication of unwanted hair, while others may need touch-up treatment sessions. Each patient is different, and some might find their hair grows back, although finer and thinner, due to hormonal changes or the effects of the aging process.
There are many benefits of laser hair removal compared with conventional hair reduction methods. For example, treatments offer long-term to permanent results, whereas traditional methods are only temporary.
Each treatment session varies in length depending on which area of the body is being treated. Treatment times can vary from 15 minutes to over an hour. There is no downtime associated with laser hair removal, so clients may resume the rest of their activities that day. Laser hair removal doesn’t require surgery, nor is it an invasive procedure.

You could be a good candidate for laser hair removal if you experience regular unwanted hair growth and seek a long-term to permanent solution. If you’re tired of shaving, waxing, plucking, or bleaching your hair, laser hair removal could be the right treatment for you.
Clients with light-colored hair may not see optimal results as laser hair removal targets the dark melanin pigment in hair follicles. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid the treatment.
