Summer’s Here: Why It’s the Perfect Time for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal can be life-changing, and that’s not an exaggeration. From saying goodbye to those irritating shaving nicks to saving thousands of dollars in waxing over the years, not to mention eliminating itchy and frustrating stubble, laser hair removal is the best way to make your summers more enjoyable than ever. If you’ve been looking for a low-maintenance hair removal solution that fits your lifestyle and needs, no matter what they are, then look no further than this cutting-edge procedure that’s taken the cosmetic world by storm. Today, we’re going over everything you need to know about laser hair removal: what it is, how it works, and why this summer is the perfect time to get it done. Let’s jump in!

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Basically, laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser light to remove body hair. The laser in question renders the hair follicle unable to produce hair, which means that it prevents any hair growth for a long time. Tiny, targeted lasers are emitted straight onto each strand of hair. The laser is then absorbed through the hair’s melanin, and its heat shoots straight into the hair follicle, killing it and making it unable to continue producing hair. Though it can sound intimidating, laser hair removal does not damage the skin itself when administered correctly by a licensed professional. It is a safe and effective procedure when it comes to getting rid of unwanted body hair in various areas of the body, including:

  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Arms
  • Upper Lip
  • Chin

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

There are so many benefits to this increasingly popular procedure. So many, in fact, that it is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country; more than 1.1 million laser hair removal treatments were administered in 2017 alone. This is because laser hair removal is an easy way to get rid of unwanted body hair long-term. It eliminates the need to shave, wax, or epilate hair for years at a time. It’s also a great option for individuals who often get ingrown hairs. Even if hair does come back over time, it will grow back much thinner. This means that, even if you don’t opt for long-term laser maintenance appointments, body hair will become much more manageable and simpler to take care of over time. Despite the use of laser light and heat, laser hair removal is known to be one of the least painful forms of hair removal – especially when compared to waxing and epilating.

Is Now the Right Time?

Is this summer the right time to look into laser hair removal? If you find yourself curious about the procedure and ready to find a more permanent hair removal alternative, then the answer is yes. Depending on the size of the area(s) you want to treat, laser hair removal can take a few sessions to complete. The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy your smooth skin! Enjoy the rest of this summer by taking hair removal off the list of things you’ll have to think about when lounging by the pool, buying that new bikini, or spending a weekend at the beach.

Aesthetic Treatments For Men Are On The Rise

There’s no denying that aesthetic treatments for men are on the rise! Men are concerned now more than ever about how to properly care for their skin. Botox, facial fillers, and advanced facial treatments aren’t just for women anymore, anti-aging skincare regimens are also on the rise in today’s 21st-century males.


Anti-aging treatments are being utilized by men all over the country, turning to medical aesthetic treatments more than ever to help them look and feel their best. Botox and a relaxing great Facial can do wonders for male skin. Neuromodulators like Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport help soften smile lines and forehead lines, giving a more rested and youthful appearance to the face. A customized deep-cleansing and hydrating European Facial helps to exfoliate, detoxify, and brighten, which also aids in the overall health and vitality of men’s skin.

Facial Fillers are also a common treatment amongst men these days. The artistic and very subtle use of fillers can help fill those hollows under the eyes and give a subtle lift to the face, which in turn, leads to a more refreshed and youthful look to the skin.

So, all of you men out there should never be afraid to try a medical aesthetic treatment! The rationale is simple: an aesthetic treatment serves as self-care for anyone – regardless of your gender.

SmartLipo by Red Bamboo Medi Spa

Laser technology has completely changed liposuction. You no longer have to live with that roll around your waist, that belly pooch, those bulges at your hips or bra line, or the loose skin of your inner thighs or upper arms. Even your jaw line and neck can be sculpted and tightened with SmartLipo by Red Bamboo.

In the tranquil setting at Red Bamboo, liposuction becomes a virtually painless, wide-awake procedure with tiny incisions, minimal downtime, significantly less cost and spectacular results.

At Red Bamboo, you begin with a complimentary consultation with one our Board Certified Physicians. We explain in great detail what you can expect to experience during your SmartLipo procedure and the Physician will answer every question you may have.

On the day of your SmartLipo, we greet you with some fruit or a muffin and some hot tea. We help you get comfortably settled in a beautiful suite with exquisite artwork, soothing music, gentle aromas and the calming touch of a massage therapist.

Red Bamboo’s Board Certified Physicians first numb the skin and then, after making tiny incisions no larger than the tip of a pencil, painlessly infuse anesthetic under the skin. There is no need for IV lines and no general anesthesia. Once the layer of fat is completely numb, a fiber optic thread the size of a strand of thin pasta delivers the laser energy that melts fat and tightens skin.

Because you are fully wide awake, you may chat with the Physicians, listen to music, sip juice and eat crackers while we sculpt a new you. The melted fat is removed with suction and we help you into a compression garment that you wear for the next two weeks.

After a light lunch, your Red Bamboo Physician reviews any questions you may have and gives you his private cell phone number so that you may contact him directly day or night. Finally, we offer you car service directly to your home in a Mercedes limo. Most of our patients are back to work the next day.

It is easy to become confused by similar sounding names: Slimlipo, Smoothlipo, Cool Lipo, Pro Lipo, Aqua Lipo, Artlipo, Smartlipo MPX, Smartlipo TPX. All of these machines are capable of melting fat and tightening skin. The real difference at Red Bamboo is the quality and experience you receive from the Physicians doing your medical procedure to sculpt a new you.

In 2008, Dr. Toscano and Dr. Teleszky became the first to introduce SmartLipo to Pinellas County and the Tampa Bay area and they have been performing more of these amazing procedures in this area than anyone else.

The Physicians at Red Bamboo have been named “Best of Tampa Bay in SmartLipo” by duPont Registry and “Doctors of Distinction” by Tampa Bay Metro Magazine. Red Bamboo’s satisfied patients include other Physicians, Registered Nurses and even some celebrities.

Advantages of SmartLipo by Red Bamboo:

  • Painless
  • No IV and no general anesthesia
  • Tightens your skin as it melts fat
  • Sculpts away problem areas
  • Minimal or no downtime
  • Much less expensive than traditional liposuction
  • Highly experienced Physicians named “Best of Tampa Bay in SmartLipo” by duPont Registry

Wrinkles and lines no longer need to be an inevitable part of aging. Botox treatment actually removes wrinkles, rather than simply filling them in. Facial shaping with Botox can safely and effectively lift and shape the brow, soften wrinkles, smile lines, frown lines and other dynamic lines for a more youthful and rested appearance.

Administered by Red Bamboo’s skilled Physicians, Botox takes only a few minutes, yet the beautiful results will last for months.
