Laser Hair Removal Tampa

Laser hair removal is an excellent way to prevent the growth of hair for long periods of time. Hair may be removed from all areas of the body, but is most frequently removed from the face, upper lip, bikini line and neck.

Certain types of hair and skin are easier to treat than others. Typically those with dark, course hair and light skin will experience the best results and require fewer treatments to achieve optimal results.

When to Consider Laser Hair Removal

Ideal candidates for hair removal are healthy individuals with lighter skin and darker hair.

Some diseases and medications may make you ineligible for hair removal, as may pacemakers and certain skin conditions. Tanned patients may need to wait for their tans to fade before undergoing laser hair removal.


What are the steps of hair removal?

The first step of hair removal is to apply a numbing lotion to the treatment area. The laser is then focused on the treatment area and removes the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser can remove hair in a fairly large area at once.

How long is recovery following hair removal?

Patients may immediately resume their normal activities, though they should avoid hot tubs and suntanning for at least 24 hours. Some ointments or topical lotions may be advised for certain situations. Healing starts in the first few days, and should be resolved shortly. A second appointment for evaluation and possible treatment may be necessary following the initial treatment.

Is there scarring from laser hair removal?

Scarring is extremely unlikely following laser hair removal, but there may be slight pigmentation changes or discoloration.

How will I feel after the procedure?

Discomfort from hair removal is typically minimal and may easily be managed using over-the-counter medication, but this is usually not required.

Are there any possible complications with laser hair removal?

Complications from laser hair removal are uncommon, as it is a minimally invasive procedure. These rare complications may include changes in skin pigmentation, blisters, burns, infections and allergic reactions.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
