Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment that uses gentle, pulsating light to damage the hair follicle, thus preventing it from growing hair.
The melanin in the hair at the follicle absorbs the beam of light from the device. This absorption causes heat which in turn destroys the hair follicle. Once the follicle is damaged, it stops producing hair, and the treated area has less or no hair growth. Because each follicle must be in the “growth stage” for this process to be effective, multiple laser hair removal treatments are necessary to catch as many follicles as possible.
Both women and men can benefit from effective laser hair removal treatment. Whether you deal with shaving, waxing, sugaring, plucking, using depilatory creams, or other hair removal methods, with laser hair removal Vero Beach patients can spend less on products and appointments. If your unwanted hair growth causes any embarrassment or lack of confidence, this procedure can help you feel ready to embark on social, athletic, or business ventures that would have previously caused hesitation. If you have unwanted hair growth in any of the following areas, laser hair removal treatment can address it:
Almost anyone looking to remove unwanted hair from their body is a good candidate for laser hair removal.
And not just women; it’s estimated that about 20-40% of laser hair removal clients nationwide are men looking to reduce or eliminate hair growth on the chest, stomach, back, and other areas. The only place where laser hair removal technology definitely cannot be used is the eyelids. Since this method works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, it may not be effective for those with very light blond or red hair.

During your consultation, we will discuss your medical history and your goals for hair removal.
A variety of factors, including genetics, hormones, or chronic conditions, can cause unwanted hair growth. Regardless of the cause, laser hair removal can help to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair. At your consultation, we will also provide detailed instructions to prepare for your appointment, which primarily include avoiding sun exposure for a few weeks.
During your appointment, you will be in a comfortable, private room fully equipped for the procedure. Your technician may use a topical cooling gel depending on the sensitivity of the treatment area. In addition, you will be given small, dark goggles to use for eye protection. Your Vero Beach laser hair removal technician will then apply the handpiece to your skin and may make a few passes depending on your hair type and the area being treated.
Immediately after the treatment, some patients experience tenderness and a “sunburned” pinkness that resolves on its own within a few hours or less. Most patients resume regular activities right away. We often recommend several initial treatments over a period of weeks to catch as many follicles as possible during the critical growth phase. After that, you can expect results for months to years.
All of the doctors, nurses, aestheticians, and staff at Ocean Drive MedSpa are excited to offer comprehensive treatments and procedures to ensure that all of our patients leave looking and feeling their best.

Most patients say that laser hair removal is very tolerable, and many consider it more comfortable than waxing or sugaring. The most common sensation is a snapping or pricking feeling.
Redness or swelling are minor side effects that can happen with laser hair removal but usually resolve on their own without any intervention. More serious but rare risks include blistering, crusting, or changes in skin texture. However, these can be avoided by going to a skilled and licensed professional.
While laser hair removal is long-lasting and generally results in less hair growth, it is not considered permanent for many patients. Dedicated initial sessions and early follow-ups usually produce the best, longest-lasting results.
Laser hair removal costs vary depending on the treatment area’s size and how many sessions will be recommended to achieve optimal results.
