Laser Hair Removal for Women – Jacksonville, FL
Florida Women’s Center’s Advanced Alexandrite Laser
Florida Women’s Center has a proven reputation for providing many services to women in need of affordable care for many sensitive women’s needs. Our physician has long recognized the burdens women face when making decisions about their bodies and then the psychological and technical frustration of finding a caring physician and staff to address their needs.
Unwanted body hair is one of the most frustrating burdens women face. Whether it is the pesky upper lip hair, chin hairs that need to be plucked or shaved, side face area hairs, belly button hair, nipple hairs, or even the most common issue that women are faced with of having to take significant time and place significant effort in shaving their legs, underarms, and even arms. And as societal hygiene and detailing have evolved so rapidly over the last 20 years, most importantly women often want hair removed from their bikini lines and pelvic area as well. This is totally normal in current times. As normal as it is, it doesn’t make the decision on where to go any easier for women. We understand this.
As Women are so often faced at times in their lives with not knowing where to go to obtain effective non-judgmental and confidential care, hair removal is just one of the many issues women also are burdened with when planning for care. Women want a setting that makes them feel at ease. A setting where they know their care givers are women’s doctors, completely pro-woman and completely professional and caring. Not just techs who are employed by chain laser companies to operate a laser machine. After all, most laser issues women have are private and sensitive. We have always recognized this and as such we provide women’s laser services in our women’s center. All our laser services are provided by our physician only. This gives great peace of mind to women when seeking private medical services.
What many women don’t understand is that Lasers and Laser machines are not all the same. A Laser is simply a high intensity focused light source that requires very specific wavelengths to accomplish certain goals. Lasers came in many forms and wavelengths and can be used to remove hair, remove lesions, and even remove tattoos to some degree. But every person and every method require a specific type of laser as there are many laser types, meaning all lasers are not the same.
To remove hair, it is known that there is a laser and wavelength that is the best. This is the laser called the Alexandrite laser, with a wavelength of 755nm. This laser is the most effective and rapid hair removal laser for persons with lighter skin types. As the skin gets darker, it is best to transition to the Nd:YAG laser which has a higher wavelength but can still achieve the goals, although it can take a bit more time and will usually require more treatments. This Nd:YAG laser is used on skin types with more pigment and darker tones. Our facility has a state of the art dual-wavelength laser that has both the highly efficient Alexandrite laser and the Nd:YAG laser. Unlike many lasers used in laser centers offering general services, our multifunction laser is fully adjustable to provide everyone personally the opportunity to achieve the most rapid and yet safest results possible depending on everyone’s personal skin tone. This is always how we at Florida Women’s Center have approached patient care. Every woman is different, and we have the capability to treat everyone’s individual needs with compassion and sensitive private care.

Be advised that although laser is a safe and proven option for effective hair reduction and removal, it does carry risks as with all medical procedures and care due to the fact that a laser is a powerful focused light source. Mild redness, possible mild blistering of the area, and uncommon pigment changes in the skin area are some of the possible yet rare side effects. But as with all side effects, these are usually temporary and quickly resolve. Also, hair reduction requires multiple visits to achieve the most optimal results possible. Our physician will personally discuss this with you and explain all your options.
