Laser Hair Removal in Atlanta, GA
Serving Tucker, Decatur, Chamblee, & Brookhaven, GA
Laser hair removal is a modality which semi-permanently removes hair from any desired part of the body. During laser hair removal, your eyes are protected while a wavelength of light is used to target the follicles in the skin for destruction. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Laser hair removal is only effective on hair with a dark root and it will not work on red, blonde or gray/white hair.
If the correct laser is used on your skin, you will notice a small hive-like reaction that lasts 10 minutes. You should not feel burning, intense pain, and extreme discomfort. Laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. It typically takes multiple treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. For best results before getting treatment make sure there is no sun exposure to the areas being treated.
Laser Hair Removal for Ingrown Hairs
Laser hair removal can treat ingrown beard hairs (pseudofolliculitis barbae), chin hairs, bikini area, chest, arms, and all other areas susceptible to ingrown hairs can be treated successfully with the removal of those problematic hairs. Typically a series of laser hair removal sessions is required to reduce the frequency of ingrown bumps. If you do not desire to lose your beard you can change the settings to thin the hairs in an attempt to reduce the frequency of ingrown hairs.
