Save your time with laser hair removal and enjoy flawless skin.
in Atlanta, GA
Excess hair is a stubborn problem that both men and women face when trying to keep their bodies in shape. Shaving and waxing are painful and time-consuming, and produce short-term results. The optimal solution for this problem is laser hair removal.
At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer laser hair removal for men and women in Atlanta, Suwanee, Johns Creek, Buckhead, and surrounding areas of Atlanta, Georgia.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving and waxing are not only painful but provide short-term results; the hair returns quickly, so you have to constantly keep up the effort. With laser hair removal, the unwanted hair will be eliminated for a long time or forever. The treatment works efficiently because the laser energy destroys the hair follicle so that it falls out, rather than being pulled out or cut.
Laser hair removal works best on the following areas:
- Bikini and Brazilian
- Face (upper lip, neck, ears)
- Men’s beard
In fact, laser hair removal can be done on the full body. To learn more about the procedure, contact us to schedule a personal consultation.
frequently asked questions
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The procedure is available for men and women of any age. However, most of our patients are between the ages of 20 and 45.
Laser hair removal is safe and effective for light and dark skin tones. Whether you have fine, light hair, or darker skin tone, the Motus AY (the type of laser we use) can be used to target and permanently remove unwanted hair painlessly.
What Happens During a Consultation?
During the consultation, Dr. Angelina Postoev will examine your skin to determine the skin type, health condition, previous concerns (if any), and review any medications you have been taking. These factors may affect your outcome, therefore, need to be discussed. You can ask any questions during the consultation.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal helps your skin look smoother. Besides, the benefits of the procedure are:
- Removing ingrown hair;
- Improving your skin quality;
- No scars and minimal side effects;
- Increasing your self-confidence.
What Should I Expect from the Procedure?
SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics offers laser hair removal with Motus AY, a high speed Alexandrite laser. This Moveo technology can be used for darker skin types as well as for light skin. Moveo’s technology is fast and effective to remove hair without pain and free from side effects. Treatment length will vary depending on the area being treated. The Motus AY is relatively fast and able to complete a large area in under 5 minutes.
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 tiny sensation. The area may be slightly red for up to 24 hours. You may notice some random hairs that will fall out over the following days.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The number of sessions that are necessary to completely remove hair depends on the individual. A standard laser hair removal routine and then maintenance treatments, as needed, are 5-6 sessions spaced one month apart. Considering the effectiveness of Motus AY, you may require fewer sessions, and can go longer before you need a touch up procedure.
Laser Hair Removal Recovery
Usually, patients will quickly return to work and activities following a laser hair removal procedure. Patients are expected to follow directions of the specialist, such as:
- A week before and after your treatment, do not expose yourself to the sun.
- Do not exercise for 24 hours after the procedure.
- For about three days, do not use the sonic steam room.
- Do not use steam showers or whirlpool tubs.
- Apply aloe vera.

Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal
There can be redness, irritation, itching, swelling, and/or bumps on treated areas. These are all temporary side effects of the heat from the laser and the reaction from the follicles being zapped by the laser. These side effects generally last from 15 minutes to 24 hours.
Because we are using a laser, there are certain risks to take into account. With Motus AY technology, risks are minimal. In addition, all treatments At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics are performed by very experienced staff members.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Pricing will vary generally based on the sizes of the treatment area, our packages (8 treatments) range from $450 to $1,800. Make sure to check our monthly specials regularly to learn about available discounts.
During your initial consultation, our team will discuss the cost of your procedure and share information about our flexible financing options.
