Rid that unwanted hair today!
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal has become the most common and accepted way to rid the body of unwanted hair. It is affordable, convenient and practical. At Atlanta MediSpa and Surgery Center, we have three different laser modalities to treat this condition. If you are looking for long-term hair reduction, laser hair removal is right for you.
For many men, unwanted hair can be a nightmare to say the least. However, they think that laser hair removal 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, requires no downtime, and has long lasting results.
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 methods, 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, disabling the hair from regrowing. Because these 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. During electrolysis, they use a hot needle and insert it into the hair follice, one at a time. This is usually painful and expensive. Lasers and lights, meanwhile, can treat multiple hairs at one time, providing for a quicker, less painful, and less expensive process.
Should I worry if I have skin of color?
Yes, if you go to “groupon” or other similar places for treatment. Why? Because there are certain lasers that can be used on skin of color, but 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.
Will I need more than one treatment?
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.

Is there any downtime?
Following laser hair treatments, you can return that day to your normal activity. In addition, the area being treated must avoid the sun because, if the skin is sun-tanned, our office may defer your treatments. The use of sunscreen (spf 30 broad spectrum) is recommended on any area being treated with laser hair removal.
