Beyond the bikini: Where to consider getting laser hair removal

With summer in full swing, chances are good that there's a trip to the beach in your future. Whether you're headed to Rockaway or Daytona, a clean bikini line can give you a little extra confidence to strut your stuff on the sand.

In addition to aesthetic considerations, laser hair therapy can make your life easier in a number of ways. No more trips to the spa for waxing means you no longer have to deal with the redness and discomfort of that painful – and painfully short-lived – procedure.

But why stick to the bikini line? Laser hair removal is effective on other parts of the body as well, providing a smooth look and feel that recaptures your youthful self-confidence.

Laser hair removal for your face and neck

As options for safe hair removal become more sophisticated, they have been approved for more sensitive areas of the body, such as the face and neck. Before each procedure, Dr. Marotta and his team complete a detailed skin evaluation in order to calibrate the machine to your unique skin.

Plus, Dr. Marotta applies a cooling, moisturizing gel during the procedure to ensure minimal discomfort throughout.

Laser hair removal treatments are safe for the upper lip, chin, and neck area. Patients can expect mild side effects similar to a light sunburn – any redness or swelling usually subsides within a few days. It's the perfect procedure for a long weekend.

For some women, arm hair can cause feelings of self-consciousness. Laser hair removal is a great option for the forearms, upper arms and underarm areas. This treatment is ideal for women who want to enjoy the warm summer weather without feeling embarrassed by body hair.

Why spend hours in the bathroom with an irritating razor when you could be rid of your body hair forever? Because hair follicles grow in cycles, you'll likely need multiple treatments to fully remove all hair – but once it's gone, it's gone. Goodbye dull razors and painful wax!
