Unwanted hair can be a source of ongoing nuisance and concern. Traditional hair removal methods require constant, never-ending maintenance and can cause additional concerns related to convenience, self-consciousness about visible hair, and, worst of all, skin inflammation. Fortunately, NUMED Medical Aesthetics offers a stress, bump, and hassle-free solution to unwanted hair in Carolina and Mayaguez. Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results, so you can stay ready for every opportunity to live beautifully. Schedule your consultation to discuss laser hair removal with one of our skilled and experienced physicians.
Smooth Skin, Stress-Free
Laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair by applying pulsed laser energy to hair in targeted areas. The energy travels through the hair down to the follicle, inhibiting hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. Areas commonly treated with laser hair removal include the legs, bikini line, underarms, upper lip, chin, and back.
Laser hair removal allows you to achieve and maintain optimally silky, smooth skin without the constant maintenance of shaving, tweezing, waxing, or depilatory creams.
A Long-Lasting Solution to a Persistent Problem
Laser hair removal is the ultimate solution to unwanted hair in virtually any area of your body. Laser hair removal offers the precision to eliminate hair without damaging surrounding tissues.
Treatment is very well tolerated by most patients, though some report minor discomfort similar to a rubber band snapping against their skin. For 90% of patients, laser hair removal is permanent. However, for all patients, the results are impeccably smooth and incredibly long-lasting. Most patients are extremely satisfied with their decision to permanently remove unwanted hair with laser.
Results You Can Feel and See
Laser hair removal works by targeting melanin (the pigment within the hair). Because of this, patients with light skin and dark hair are ideal candidates. However, recent innovations in laser have made treatment for patients with darker skin tones possible. During your consultation with one of our expertly trained physicians, we will discuss your candidacy for laser hair removal and design an optimal, personalized treatment plan to fit your unique concerns and circumstances.
Your Path to Impeccable Results
To begin your treatment, your providing physician will prepare your skin with a topical anesthetic. Once the targeted area is sufficiently numb, your provider will use a handheld device to deliver intense laser pulses to individual hair follicles. Depending on your unique case, your laser hair removal may be combined with radiofrequency treatment. This will be discussed during your consultation. It is important to note that it is typical for patients to need several treatments per area to achieve optimal results with laser hair removal.
This is because hair growth occurs in a cycle that involves three distinct phases. For the most effective treatment, laser hair removal should be applied during the growth stage. As there is no time at which all of the hair in an area is in active growth, repeated treatments are necessary to treat each hair at the optimal time. Most patients undergo between three and five sessions spaced four to eight weeks apart. The duration of your treatment may depend partially on the texture and location of the hair being treated.
Quick, Easy, and Safe
Following your laser hair removal, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, or tenderness in treated areas. You can mitigate any post-procedure discomfort with moisturizers, anti-inflammatory creams, cold compresses, or ice packs. It is important to protect your treated skin from sun exposure after your treatment.

Laser hair removal typically involves no complications. The most common concern is the return of unwanted hair. However, if regrowth does occur, treated hairs grow back finer and lighter than they were previously. Other possible complications include skin irritation, pigmentation changes, or minor scarring. You can minimize your risk of complications with treatment from a skilled and reputable provider.
Your laser hair removal treatment can include any area of your body, with the exception of areas close to the eyes. For patients interested in treating their bikini line or Brazilian area, laser hair removal allows you to stay beach-ready with no fuss or bumps.
