Are you getting laser hair removal or IPL hair removal?
Recently, we had a client come in for laser hair removal consultation at our office. During the complimentary consultation at our office, the client mentioned that she's had a several "laser hair removal" procedures, but was still having issues with the hair coming back.
After a little discussion, we decided to see what kind of "laser" was being used on her for hair reduction and may be we could figure out why she hadn't had a good response from her laser hair removal procedures.
We decided to look on the website of the business this client was going to. Clearly, on their website it says "Laser Hair Removal" many times indicating they perform laser hair removal. But when we dug a little deeper and look at the machine that was being used, we found out that it was actually an IPL (intense pulsed light) machine.
For people familiar lasers and lights, there is a huge difference between lasers and IPL.
Lasers are much more powerful than IPLs.
No reputable establishment would claim they are doing laser hair removal when in fact they are performing IPL hair removal! People should be clearly told what kind of machine will be used for hair reduction: IPL or laser.
Some places play with words and say they do laser IPL procedure...there is no such thing. An IPL machine is not a laser!
Soon, we will be posting a detailed article on the difference between a laser and IPL on our website. In the meantime, make sure you are getting laser treatments and not IPL treatments.

More Men Opting for Laser Hair Removal
The number one location for laser hair removal on men has been their back. Most men (and women) can't stand a hairy back. The latest trend seems to be men who are removing the hair on their feet and toes as well.
Wearing flip-flops and sandals has been fashionable lately, especially here in Orlando. A lot of men are choosing to wear sandals and flip-flops during the summer time. With that comes the exposure of hair on their feet and toes.
Women have generally been more conscious of this problem and have chosen to shave or opted for laser hair removal. But interestingly, more men are choosing to clear off their feet and toes by getting rid of the hair.
While laser hair removal can you permanent results, it can take a number of treatments to completely remove all of the hair, depending on the body part.
If you live in the Orlando or Central Florida area and are interested in laser hair removal, contact Pristine Laser Center at 407-494-0404 to schedule a complimentary consultation.
Many People Start Laser Hair Removal in Winter, so they Can be Hair-Free by Summer
Thinking of getting laser hair removal?
Now is probably the best time to start. With the beginning of Spring a little over a month away, it won’t be long the weather here in Orlando becomes warm and hot during the summer. With that comes tanned skin which makes laser hair removal treatments more difficult and unsafe in certain individuals.
So why get laser hair removal? Unlike shaving which can lead to razor bumps, cuts and irritation, laser hair removal provides permanent reduction in hair growth. It will usually take 5 to 6 treatment sessions, each spread out 4 to 6 weeks apart. With each treatment, the hair follicles will no longer produce hair or produce hair that is thinner and lighter in color.
At Pristine Laser Center, we offer laser hair removal treatment at an affordable price. Call us today at 407-494-0404 for a free consultation.

Unfortunately a lot of women and men have unwanted hair on their face and they are looking for a way to get rid of it. We offer laser hair removal for this group of individuals. With our power laser machine, we can treat your entire face or any part of your face that you wish. The "peach fuzz" that's on your face will go away and you will have better, beautiful skin to show off.
The laser machine sends a powerful beam of light that goes to the hair root and destroys it. Depending on where that hair follicle cycle is, it may either get destroyed completely, partially or none. If the hair does come back, it will be thinner and lighter in color. A second or third round of treatment will destroy more of the follicles. That is why more than one treatment is usually needed.

It is very important for our patients to be aware of potential problems with laser tattoo removal or laser hair removal. It is important to remember that for laser tattoo removal, the laser targets the ink pigments in the skin. For laser hair removal, it targets the melanin (dark pigment) in the hair follicle. Anything that interferes with this can either reduce efficacy of treatment or cause problems.
Although laser treatments are safe and effective, there are certain things that must be observed. The most important thing to remember is to stay out of the sun before and after treatments. If someone’s skin is exposed to the sun before treatment, he/she will develop a tan. Tanning occurs when the melanocytes of the skin produce melanin. If there is extra melanin in the skin before laser treatment, the laser’s beam will not be as effective in targeting the melanin in the hair or the tattoo ink. After laser treatment, the skin is very sensitive. Exposure of skin to excessive sunlight after laser treatment may lead to sunburn, irritation or blistering. The best way to prevent this from happening is to cover the treated area and/or apply sunscreen of SPF30 or greater.
