Laser Hair Reduction Reviews
"I’ve never been a spa girl but Brickell Cosmetic turned me into one! I first tried Brickell Cosmetic back in 2011 as a Groupon customer. I liked the spa so much that I went back in 2013 when I was dealing with terrible adult acne. At this point I had tried everything- dermatologists, doctors, medicines, every type of product possible. My skin was so bad that some days I wouldn’t leave the house. At first I was dubious that Skincare treatments would help given all the other things I had tried, but I decided to give it a shot. Brickell Cosmetic saved my skin. Julie (the owner) got me on a skincare regimen of Obagi products and recommended a series of treatments to get the acne under control. Once the acne was under control, I started with treatments to help get ride of scars and smooth out the texture of my skin. I can’t even begin to tell you how drastically my skin changed. I was getting so many compliments from friends. I was finally able to step out of the house without makeup and feel confident about my appearance. The best part? It didn’t break the bank.I joined the membership program which is $149 per month and includes six treatments from a list of multiple skincare and body treatments. This is insanely inexpensive given that at most Miami spas you pay around $150 for just one microdermabrasion! For treatments not included in the membership, such as chemical peels and mani/pedis, members receive a 40% discount. There are also discounts on products (Obagi Skincare and Jane Iredale makeup). There is also no catch in this membership. Unlike places like Massage Envy, you won’t get locked into a one year contract. You can cancel your membership at any time with ten days notice before your next payment is due.All of the aestheticians I have worked with have been great. What I like most about the spa is the genuine friendliness- they treat you like family there and care about how you are doing. I also like that they aren’t pushy with selling products like other spas I’ve tried. Here, they will tell you about the products they have to offer and recommend things that they truly think would be helpful (in my case, the Obagi skin care products designed to treat acne) but they won’t harass you about it if you don’t want to buy something.Scheduling is always easy and Julie has always been very accommodating in fitting me in or rescheduling appointments. Once she even offered to stay late so I could work in my acne treatments around my work schedule. Talk about above and beyond! Parking has never been a problem for me. The parking lot is small, but there is plenty of street parking. If you live in Brickell you can catch the Coral Way Trolley here or even walk/bike.There is a wide variety of services here (manicures, massage, cellulite reduction, body wraps, and more) which is great because it is one-stop shopping for all your beauty needs. They are even getting a laser soon for laser hair removal.If you want to try Brickell Cosmetic but aren’t ready to buy a membership, there are many deals on the spas website and there are Groupon specials every month. It’s definitely worth it!"- E.K. / Yelp / Nov 19, 2014
"Been a client at Brickell Cosmetic Center for over a year now and I’m finally ready to write a review... Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. The center is extremely organized in scheduling and confirming appointments both via email and text. The Center is quaint and always is enjoyable to visit. They offer a wide range of services and high quality skin products. They open on Saturdays which is very convenient as it’s hard for to make it after work during the week. The laser hair removal machine Soprano Ice is truly magnificent. It’s one of the least painful lasers I have ever experienced. The tip of the machine is cold so they can numb the area before they zap you which allows you to hardly feel any pain. I highly recommend. I tried other machines in other places and they honestly were pretty torturous. The blue obagi peel is also an excellent treatment as well as the Micro Pod (Microdermabrasion) treatments. Overall everyone is also extremely professional which has always made this experience at Brickell Cosmetic Center enjoyable. They will also pay your parking if you are doing certain treatments nearby. Stay Youthful!"- C.A. / Yelp / Jun 22, 2016
"I was referred here by a friend and reluctantly went in for laser hair removal. I was apprehensive as I have never had any cosmetic procedures. But time is cruel and a few ugly hairs had grown on my face. The appointment process was easy. Parking is readily available behind the center. They even called to confirm and and follow-up. The staff was great explaining the procedure and what I should expect. Lisa took great care of me and made me feel very comfortable and secure. Best part is that those few ugly hairs are mostly gone. I'll be back soon for a follow-up. Thanks for the great service!"- E.A. / Google / Sep 30, 2019
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal at Brickell Cosmetic Center is ideal for Key Biscayne, Brickell, and Miami Beach, FL men and women who want to remove unwanted hair from their body — no matter the skin type. On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are washed to remove oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a technician will slightly stretch the skin to create a clear pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. A dual-wavelength, high-energy laser will focus on and disable the follicle, which stops it from growing back. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to see optimal results. Your sessions will be staggered to allow the affected areas time to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active phase of growth so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Brickell Cosmetic Center is able to target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treatment area. After your session, you will be free to go back to your normal activities, but you should avoid strenuous activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours to let the treated skin recover. While the treatment is relatively gentle, you might experience a sunburned look or sensation where you were treated for a day or two.

Laser hair reduction FAQs
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal treatments are not made to be permanent. However, results are expected to be long-lasting. After consistent laser sessions at Brickell Cosmetic Center, you will notice that any remaining hair grows back thinner and lighter, thus making it easier to remove in the future. Most of our patients continue to be satisfied with their reduction of unwanted hair years after treatment.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
In order to see your desired results, multiple laser treatments are required. This is because our hair grows in cycles. The number of required sessions varies from person to person and the size of the area being treated. Dr. Dozier can make recommendations for your specific situation during a consultation in our office.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal is relatively painless; however, it is possible to experience discomfort. Some people compare the feeling to a rubber band snapping on the skin. Rest assured that our trained staff will make sure you are comfortable and at ease during your laser hair removal treatment in Miami, FL.
