Shaving, plucking, and tweezing are three words that you can wipe from your vocabulary this year. Rather than getting frustrated with having hairy legs, underarms, or a bikini area, let us at Georgia Dermatology Partners, help you get a hair free body with laser hair removal. Let’s take a closer look at laser hair removal and what you can expect from treatment.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
By using tiny pulses of light, laser hair removal works to target and destroy each hair follicle. Once destroyed, the hair follicle is typically unable to grow back.
What Does It Feel Like?
Before we start, we will apply a numbing cream over the area being treated. Even though the numbing cream will help, patients still typically experience a slight amount of pain that they relate to having rubber bands snapping their skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The interesting thing about laser hair removal is that in order for it to be the most effective, you will need multiple treatments. Why? Your hair grows in cycles. During the first treatment, we will be able to target one hair cycle. During the next treatment, we will be able to target the next cycle, and so on.
Also, it’s important to remember that everyone responds differently to laser hair removal. For instance, one person may only need three treatments to get rid of the hair on their legs whereas another person may need five.
If you want to hang up your razor and cancel your waxing appointments for good, then consider getting laser hair removal from our office. To learn more, contact our Snellville office and call us at (770) 972-4845.
