For many men, unwanted hair can be a nightmare to say the least. They think it is going to be painful so they are reluctant about coming in. Rest assure men and women, it is not painful. It is usually fast, no downtime and the results of laser hair managment are long lasting.
In the past, we used creams that smelled bad, sharp razors that hurt the skin and hot wax that could be quite painful. While there is still a place for these devices, most of the time laser will replace them quickly and permanently.
How does Laser hair management and Removal work?
The devices don’t actually burn the hair, they target the color pigment or “melanin” in the hair follicle. This destroys the follicle that then disable the hair from regrowing. While many of the devices target the hair follicle, it is not uncommon to have patients report that their skin was in better shape after the treatments.
When laser or laser light is exposed to your hair bearing skin, the treatments are considered safe, fast, gentle and effective. Most prefer this over the stinging creams and wax.
Is laser and light systems different from electrolysis?
Yes, electrolysis is a much slower and painful process. They use a hot needle and insert it into the hair follice, one at a time. This is usually painful and expensive. When lasers and lights are used, the device can treat multiple hairs at one time.
Should you worry if you have skin of color?
In general, yes if you go to a “groupon” or other similar places for treatment. Why? Because there are certain lasers that can be used on skin of color and others will lead to scarring which could be permanent.
At Atlanta Medispa & Surgery Center, our laser technicians are trained thoroughly by attending our school, Physicians Aesthetics Academy. They know to adjust the power settings so that the focus of the laser targets the melanin in the hair and not the melanin in the skin.
Multiple treatments are necessary as not all hair follicles are in the optimal phase of growth. We charge $300 for 15 minutes of device usage. This usally will do underarms or bikini. The price does go up for longer and down for shorter time periods.
