Excess hair is one of the most stubborn problems that men and women have when they are keeping their bodies looking good. Shaving and waxing are painful and produce only short-term results. Laser hair removal is a much better option.
At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer laser hair removal for men and women in Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving and waxing are not only painful, but the hair returns very quickly, so you have to constantly maintain the area. With laser hair removal, the unwanted hair is quickly and easily removed and the results are long-lasting. The treatment works so well because the laser energy destroys the hair follicle so that it falls out, rather than being pulled out or cut
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
What Should I Expect from My Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics offers laser hair removal with the DiolazeXL from InMode. This system is considered the gold stand for laser hair removal.
During the treatment, a handpiece is used to apply the laser energy in short bursts. Each time the laser is applied, you feel only a small sensation that is similar to a pinch on your skin. The area may be slightly red for up to 24 hours, but the hair is gone. You may notice some random hairs that fall out over the following days.
How Long Do the Results Last?
With repeat treatments, many patients experience permanent hair removal in the area.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
It can be uncomfortable. Most people describe the sensation as a rubber band snap. We at SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics use a Zimmer Cryo Chiller, which is a cold air device designed and intended to minimize pain during treatment.
Laser Hair Removal Side Effects:
There can be redness, irritation, itching, swelling and/or bumps to treated areas. These are all temporary side effects of the heat from laser and the reaction from the follicle being zapped by the laser. These side effects generally last anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours.
Laser Hair Removal Risks
Because we are using a laser, there are certain risks to take into account. Thermal injuries (burns) are possible, changes in skin color, crusting, changes in skin texture, blistering are all possible risks of laser hair removal. There are certain measures our technicians take to avoid any of these reactions. Using the Zimmer Cryo Chiller, using the correct laser based on skin typing, and reviewing medical history and medications being taken are some of the main ways to avoid these risks.
