Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics and Laser Institute

How does laser hair removal work?

At Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics and Laser Institute of Tampa, the staff uses the Soprano ICE — the gold standard for laser hair removal. It penetrates the hair follicle at just the right depth so you get results in a virtually painless way. The hair shaft below the skin absorbs the energy of the laser, destroying the hair follicle so hair does not grow back.

Why consult a medical aesthetic clinic for laser hair removal?

At Bella Mia, you’re guaranteed that either Dr. Rivera or Dr. Panchal perform or directly supervise your procedure. You benefit from their extensive training and medical expertise to get the best results possible. Laser hair removal is not an exact science, but somewhat of an art. You want providers who know how to adjust the laser’s energy and direct treatment so you get the smoothest skin possible.

Where is laser hair removal effective?

The Soprano ICE effectively removes hair from just about anywhere on your body. It features different laser applicators to help Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal reach small or intimate areas. The most popular treatment areas include:

  • Face
  • Arms and underarms
  • Back and chest
  • Bikini area
  • Legs

How many treatments do I need?

The density of your hair, skin type, ethnicity, and hair growth patterns determine the exact number of treatments you need. Dr. Rivera and Dr. Panchal put together a treatment plan customized just for you.

You need multiple treatments to treat all the hair follicles in the right stages of hair growth. For optimal results, each hair must be targeted during the initial growth phase. Treatments are typically spaced four to six weeks apart until you receive your desired results.  

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Treatment sessions are virtually painless. Many patients liken it to a massage-like sensation. During treatment, the laser simultaneously cools as it heats the hair follicles, which minimizes discomfort and the risk of burns on the skin surface.

The sessions are also over quickly, often in half the time of other laser treatments. You can return to your normal activities right afterwards, including workouts.
