If you’re interested in getting rid of unwanted hair, there are several methods to choose from, including shaving, tweezing, and waxing. But laser hair removal is one of the few methods that can get rid of unwanted hair long-term. At Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa in Newnan, GA, we develop a custom laser treatment plan for each patient we work with.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Laser treatments will dramatically slow down hair growth, making it a long-lasting solution. Most patients who have had this treatment don’t have to worry about unwanted hair for a year or two. When the hair eventually returns, it will be finer and will grow more slowly. Scheduling periodic follow-up treatments can help maintain your results.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Involve?
This treatment users lasers to damage the hair follicles. Our practice uses the DIOLUX system, which effectively removes hair from almost any skin type or color. It can also be performed on both light and dark hair. The DIOLUX device we place against your skin to direct the laser has a cool tip, which ensures that you’ll be comfortable. Patients who undergo treatment with the DIOLUX system don’t even need to apply numbing cream in advance.
Which Parts of the Body Can This Be Performed On?
This approach to hair removal can be successfully performed all over the body. The upper lip, chin, and brows are all popular facial treatment zones. Laser hair removal is also routinely performed along the bikini line and on the legs, back, neck, chest, and stomach. The only hairs that can’t be lasered away are the eyelashes.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of treatments needed, and the frequency of those treatments will depend on what area you’re having addressed and how much hair you have. Facial hair, for example, grows more quickly than body hair, so treatments on the face can be scheduled more frequently. We’ll recommend a treatment plan once we’ve had a chance to evaluate your area of concern. Most patients see a significant improvement after just two or three sessions.
How Long Do Appointments Take?
Depending on the size of your treatment zone, most sessions can be completed in an hour or less.
Will I Need To Do Anything Special After Treatment?
Patients can get right back to their regular activities after treatment. Avoiding sun exposure will be important, and we may recommend that you steer clear of cosmetics and certain lotions. We’ll provide you with post-treatment instructions at your appointment. You’ll also want to refrain from tweezing or waxing between your laser appointments.
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
Candidates for this treatment should be healthy and should have healthy skin. If you have a history of healing problems or keloid scars, this treatment may not be for you.
You’ve Found That At-Home Hair Removal Is Not Enough
Most patients who come to us for laser hair removal have not gotten the results they wanted with at-home methods like tweezing and shaving. If these approaches have not worked, either because the volume of unwanted hair is too great or because you can’t reach the area of concern, it may be time to try laser treatments.
You Have a Lot of Unwanted Hair
The best candidates are looking to get rid of a noticeable amount of unwanted hair. That could be because of the density of the hair or because you want hair on a large part of the body, like the back, removed. For many of these patients, at-home methods aren’t able to fully address the issue.
Why Should I Consider Laser Treatments?
It Helps You Avoid Ingrown Hair
Some other approaches to hair removal, like shaving and waxing, can encourage the development of ingrown hair. But because laser treatments target the hair follicle, ingrown hairs are not a problem.
It’s Not Painful
Laser treatments get rid of unwanted hair without causing any discomfort. Some patients say they experience mild stinging during the treatment, but it won’t be a painful or uncomfortable experience.
It’s Quick and Convenient
Laser treatments can often be completed in less than an hour, making them a convenient option. And you’ll see results right away. You’ll leave our practice with smooth, hairless skin.
It Doesn’t Require You To Wait for Regrowth
Some hair removal treatments require you to wait between treatments, giving the hair time to regrow. This means you may need to put up with stubble for a few days, which can be frustrating. Waiting patiently as your hair regrows is not necessary when you opt for laser treatments.
It Precisely Removes Hair
Laser treatments can be executed with precision, making it a great option for areas like the bikini line, the brows, or even along the upper lip.
