In today’s world where many women and men are looking to remove unwanted body hair, it’s not uncommon to opt for laser hair removal. In fact, many are turning to this skincare treatment because it’s less time consuming and is financially worth it in the long run. But how do you know when to start such treatments? At Tropicalaser, we believe that fall is the perfect time to start your laser hair removal journey, and here’s why:


Save time and money
Think about the time and items you spend money on to beautify your legs, underarms, and bikini area - razors, blades, conditioning soap, shaving cream, waxing kits, and aftershave. American women who shave will spend an average of ten thousand dollars and nearly two entire months of their lives managing unwanted hair! A woman who waxes once or twice per month can spend anywhere around twenty-three thousand dollars over the course of her lifetime - and in modern day, the same applies to men. Although laser hair removal is more money upfront, there is something to be said about saving money (and hours) in the long run. 

Fall is perfect time to start
The average woman or man needs about 4 to 8 weeks between laser hair removal treatments. And approximately 4 to 6 treatments are needed, depending on location and hair type. With the time you need in between and the amount of sessions required, your skin will be silky smooth just in time for next beach season!

Looking for a way to get rid of unwanted hair for good before next bikini season? Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.

Ingrown hairs - an all too common occurrence when it comes to hair removal. Why? When tweezed, waxed, or shaved hair grows back, it sometimes curls back into the skin and not through to the surface. The result? An unsightly raised, pink or tan bump that can become infected and is often times painful.

While ingrowns typically aren’t cause for alarm, they certainly aren’t pleasant.  To help prevent them, keep the following tips in mind:

Shave after cleansing -  Your hair will be softer and more pliable. Always use shaving gel or cream.
Don’t pull skin taught while shaving - This allows the cut hair to draw back into the skin and re-enter the skin without first growing out.
Use a sharp razor - Determine if a single or multiple blade razor is best for you and change your blade frequently.
Experiment in shaving directions - Some find shaving in the direction of hair growth prevents ingrowns while others claim shaving against the grain showed most improvement. See what’s best for you!
Exfoliate - Ingrowns can also be caused by the existence of a thick layer of dead skin. Use an exfoliating glove, brush, or body scrub once or twice a week.

The best method for ingrown hair prevention? Avoiding waxing, shaving, and tweezing all together! Laser hair removal is a more permanent solution for hair removal and is well worth it if you find yourself struggling with ingrown hairs. Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you.

While the spring season is on the horizon, we’re not out of the woods just yet. This winter’s weather continues to wreak havoc on our skin - leaving us rough, scaly, and itchy.

Whether you are suffering from red, raw skin right now or are finding your legs more flaky than usual - there are things you can do to make a difference:

  • Keep cool. While cold temps may still be upon us, refrain from cranking the thermostat! Dry, indoor heat will rid your home - and skin - of its natural moisture. Instead, layer up while indoors and consider investing in a humidifier at the very least for your bedroom. Your skin will thank you!
  • Bathe in WARM water. A nice, hot, steamy shower may be just what you need to unwind after a long day - but it doesn’t help your dry skin. Hot water strips your body of its natural protective oils which work to keep your skin smooth and moist. Dial down the temperature to just above lukewarm.
  • Shave wisely. Not only can shaving irritate dry skin, but the act of shaving scrapes off your skin’s natural oils. Wait until you’re near done with your shower to shave - hairs will be softer and more pliable post bathing. Always be sure to use shaving cream or gel and a sharp blade.
  • Pat yourself dry. After a shower, start patting (not rubbing) yourself dry. Rubbing can irritate your skin and also whisks away a lot of beneficial moisture. Patting on the other hand leaves your skin damp - key for soaking up any moisturizer you apply after showering!

Bikini line, under arms, upper lip - for hair removal, these spots are nothing new. But if you’ve begun spotting some strays in less discussed areas, you’re not alone. As we age, hormone levels change and as a result: hair growth in weird places.

See below for what we’re talking about and how you can combat it:

  1. Chin: Thanks to age-related shifting hormone levels, it’s not unusual to discover a few darker-than-normal hairs. Grab a pair of tweezers and gently remove any that you may find. You’ll want to avoid waxing this sensitive area - for just a a few strays, you don’t want to trigger irritation.
  2. Back or décolleté: Going through menopause? Hair growth may follow a male pattern - sprouting strays on your back and chest. This can be remedied with a depilatory cream or wax for any hard to reach areas. Laser hair removal is also an option if you seek a more permanent solution.
  3. Face: While peach fuzz is genetic, it can become more noticeable with age-related estrogen dips. Shaving causes stubble, instead a more permanent solution like laser hair removal is in your best interest.
  4. Nipples: Yup, expect some rogue hairs here as your hormones shift. If you spot an occasional hair, tweeze it. For anything more, laser hair removal is safe and effective for the areola. 
  5. Abdomen: No matter the age, this area is a common spot for excess hair in women. For a quick removal method, try waxing. For a more permanent alternative, that’s where laser hair removal comes in.

Should you experience a rapid growth of hair in the above areas, you may want to consult your physician to see if there is an underlying medical issue (such as a thyroid condition).

 

If you’d prefer never having to wax or shave again - we offer a more permanent solution. Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.

After months of unpredictable temps, skin baring season is finally upon us. Which means one thing: your legs are going to be on full display. So before slipping into your pleated skirt, give your legs a little TLC with the below tips:

Scrub: First step on the beach-body checklist? Exfoliation. It rids your body of dry, rough skin, making it more receptive to other treatments. Opt for a hand mitt and shower gel or for more sensitive skin, a dry body brush.

Bathe: Use a gentle body wash and warm water. Alternatively, apply body oil under running water. This way once you’ve dried off, your skin is still left with the perfect amount of moisture.

Moisturize: Apply moisturizer at least once to twice daily, ideally after a shower - this keeps your skin hydrated and supple. Apply your moisturizer in a circular motion to help increase circulation.

De-Fuzz: Sure waxing and shaving are immediate solutions for short term hair removal, but to stay fuzz free for longer it may be time to consider laser hair removal with us at Tropicalaser. Our laser hair removal treatments work for any body area and for all skin types. Our treatments are also simple and safe, and conducted by experienced, licensed professionals.

Aside from helping to de-fuzz your legs, we can also help with ridding unwanted fat and cellulite thanks to our non-surgical treatment option: Cavi-Lipo. This treatment is ideal for reducing fat deposits on the thighs, hips, and other troubled areas and is the only ultra sound device that is effective on cellulite!

It used to be that unless a man was a bodybuilder, cyclist, or swimmer their body hair remained untouched - but not anymore! Now, more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women - including smooth skin.

That’s where we come in. Below are some of the 3 most popular areas our male clients seek our laser hair removal services for:

 

  1. Back hair: Unwanted back hair can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Many of our clients at Tropicalaser are men seeking treatment to remove hair from the large areas of their back. 
  2. Chest hair: Some men prefer a smooth chest while others just wish to get rid of any thick, excessive chest hair. Regardless of what your desired end result is, Tropicalaser can get you the look you want.
  3. Beard area: Common for those who dislike shaving around their lower face and chin. In addition to eliminating the need to shave every day, it will also prevent irritation and the development of folliculitis, a condition often experienced by men where one or more hair follicles becomes inflamed from shaving. 

Eliminate the need to shave or wax regularly and additionally prevent any irritation and development of folliculitis.  Give us a call on 1 (516) 307-1543 or fill out the form on the right to receive special offers and discounts on laser hair removal services.

According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDA) the number of laser hair removal treatments increased by 46 percent since 2013. It’s obvious more and more Americans are getting fed up with having pesky, unwanted hair and opting for a hairless solution.

While laser hair removal has been a savior for many, others are still hesitant as to whether or not it is right for them. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.

See below for some common reasons people say yes to this hugely popular service:

  • Shaving irritates your skin. Razor burn symptoms can range from minor bumps to severe rashes, redness, and in extreme cases - infection.
  • You have hair in areas that aren’t convenient for removal. Woman, for example, may not want to have excess hair on their upper lips or chin.
  • You’ve had bad reactions or are sensitive to other removal methods, like waxes and creams.
  • You want long lasting results that save on time and money!

When considering laser hair removal, it’s important to consult an experienced and qualified professional. With years of experience, constant training on the latest innovations and a sincere dedication to helping you get the results you desire, our Tropicalaser practitioners can help you navigate the possibilities of our state-of-the-art technology and laser hair removal services.

The chore of shaving and waxing can often lead to irritation and ingrown hairs. Real sexy right? The thought of laser hair removal may be on your mind - and for good reason: it’s simple, causes only minimal discomfort, and the dream of a hair free summer isn’t too out of reach. 

Before coming into Tropicalaser here in Garden City, we have three important things you should know:

  1. Avoid waxing and topical creams - Laser hair removal works by targeting the dark pigment in the hair follicles. Avoid plucking, waxing, or threading the area and if you’re getting facial-hair removal, avoid using topical retinoids a few days prior as they sensitize the skin.
  2. Avoid harsh products and keep the skin protect - Skip any harsh exfoliation after your hair removal session, your skin will be a little delicate and sensitive.  While yes, you can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment, it is advisable to keep the skin protected from exposure to direct sunlight for a short period of time. Apply SPF and cover up!
  3. Be patient - Although it takes several sessions for results to be permanent, patients will see results quickly. For effective laser hair removal, the hair must be in the active growing phase (Anagen) in its growth cycle as this is when hair is still connected to the base of the hair follicle. Not every hair is in the Anagen phase at any one time which is why you will need multiple treatments over time to treat ALL hairs during the Anagen phase. We recommend a course of 6 treatments to achieve hair-free skin. Facial hair is treated once every 4 weeks and body hair is treated once every 8 weeks.

At Tropicalaser, we pride ourselves on being specialists in laser hair removal. We always follow strict guidelines to ensure we operate in a clean facility, and we use the Gentle Max Pro Laser, which is the fastest, most comfortable laser, and the gold standard in laser technology.

Unfortunately, laser hair removal has not always had the best reputation. In it’s early stages, poor quality control and lack of trained laser technicians made the procedure damaging for individuals with darker skin. Even now it’s a common misconception that it is unsafe for men and women with ethnic or darker skin tones. 

The truth is, thanks to all the advances in laser technology and techniques throughout the years, these procedures are safe - so long as you visit an experienced, highly trained laser center like Tropicalaser Long Island. We use only the latest in FDA approved genuine lasers and follow a very strict safety protocol by our medical directors and laser specialists.

Supported by our qualified physicians, our Laser Hair Removal Professionals are the best in the business. With years of experience, constant training on the latest innovations and a sincere dedication to helping you get the results you desire, they’ll help you navigate the possibilities of our state-of-the-art technology and laser hair removal services.

“I have always wondered about having laser hair removal done but I was afraid of how painful it would be. When I visited the Tropicalaser in Garden City I was surprised by how beautifully it was decorated and how sweet the staff was!!I felt comfortable right away. I had my underarms, lower legs and chin hairs removed.. I felt no pain what so ever and I LOVED the results!! I have recommended this place to all my friends who have had the same results!! I love not having to shave and having unwanted hair gone!!” - via Kathy Quinn

“Went for my first appointment yesterday, and all I can say is WOW. I've had 12 laser hair removal sessions elsewhere before, and it's never been like this!! The office is so clean that you have zero concerns about safety. Then when you start the session, it's so quick and painless! I know in past that I have laid there in pain and tears as the technician worked at a snails pace. It would feel like a little needle with each section. But not here. All you feel is the machine gliding over your skin. Each time she'd warn me by saying this might hurt...but it never did. I'm in shock still! What I like best is that they educate you. May sound silly but once you are educated, you'll never want to go anywhere else but here. Before this I had no idea that there were different types of lasers, now I see the difference. Yes - you could go out and buy 6 sessions for $99 from groupon like i had in past - DONT BOTHER...Come here and sign up. Anything you have done at a groupon spa will NEVER compare to the experience here or the quality product you get. Love this place!” - via Christine Van Leuvan

Does it really work? Can men do it? Is it expensive? All common questions we get from our patients when entering the world of laser hair removal, and we’re here with answers to set your mind at ease:

Does laser hair removal work?
First let’s explain the process - laser hair removal treatment works by focusing laser light at the root of your hair follicles. Here, it disperses as thermal energy and damages the base causing hair not to be produced as quickly. The more treatments you have, the more your hair growth rate will decrease. On average 80-95% of laser hair is permanently gone after your recommended course of treatments.

Does laser hair removal work on all hair?
The laser targets the dark pigment present in some hairs, but isn’t as effective on blonde, white, or grey hair. It is safe for both facial and body hair - including large areas like the legs and back.

Does laser hair removal work for men?
Since laser hair removal is quick and safe, it’s ideal to use on large areas of the body - thus making it particularly suitable for men who are seeking to be rid of unwanted chest, shoulder, and back hair.

Is it expensive?
The easiest way to justify the cost, is to consider the amount of money you spend monthly, or yearly, on buying razors, shaving cream, or going for a wax. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.

At Tropicalaser, our advanced laser has a built-in cooling system, but ice packs can also be applied pre and post treatment to further lessen any discomfort. After the treatment you may see some slight redness or very occasionally localized swelling, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after the hair removal session.
