Start The New Year Right by Kissing Goodbye to Shaving

By Lisa DeStefano
In Medical Spa Articles

Kiss the hassle of shaving, painful waxing, and tweezing goodbye. For the vast majority of men and women, shaving is an annoying, daily ritual. Luckily, there is a permanent and effective solution available for people who are fed up with shaving: laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is an extremely versatile cosmetic tool that can be used to permanently destroy body hair, allowing patients to forgo shaving indefinitely. Laser hair removal is a comfortable treatment with virtually no downtime.  During the treatment, pulsed light delivers photothermal energy to hair follicles.  The rapid, short pulses of light or photothermal energy causes the hair follicle to stop producing hair without harming the surrounding tissue.

Hair grows in three stages:

  1. Anagen
  2. Catagen
  3. Telogen

Laser hair treatments predominantly treat hairs in the anagen phase, also known as the active growth phase.  Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time, multiple treatments are necessary to target all hair in the treatment site.

What’s most exciting of all? Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are the face, underarms, arms, legs, bikini area, chest, shoulders, and backs. And even more exciting is that many laser hair removal devices can be used on both light and dark skin types on both men and women. The procedure is designed for dark hair. Red, blonde, and gray hair are not well suited for laser hair removal.

As always, be sure your treatment is administered by a Licensed Laser Practitioner who holds a training certificate for the specific laser device they use.  This will ensure you will receive the best results possible for your investment.

Laser hair removal treatment is available in our Alpharetta and Midtown Atlanta offices. Call us at 678.566.7200 to schedule your appointment.
