Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Georgia Center for Female Health uses advanced laser technology to heat up and destroy hair follicles. The result is permanent hair loss in targeted areas, including your:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Stomach
  • Neck
  • Face
  • Upper lip

Georgia Center for Female Health specialists can remove unwanted body hair just about anywhere on your body. Hair removal is usually permanent, though you might require periodic maintenance treatments.

Is laser hair removal right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for laser hair removal, the Georgia Center for Female Health team reviews your medical history and examines body or facial hair in problem areas. They discuss your desired outcome and let you know what to expect during treatment. Laser hair removal is safe and effective for just about every skin type.

How should I prepare for treatment?

In preparation for laser hair removal at Georgia Center for Female Health, protect your skin from the sun, and avoid sunless tanning creams. Don’t pluck, wax, or use electrolysis for at least four weeks before your scheduled appointment. Shave the treatment area the day before laser treatment.

What should I expect during laser hair removal?

You relax in a comfortable chair during laser hair removal. Your aesthetic provider offers you special glasses to protect your eyes and applies a numbing cream to your skin, so you don’t feel any discomfort. 

They use a handheld device to apply laser energy to areas containing unwanted body or facial hair. The procedure might last just a few minutes for your upper lip or more than an hour for larger areas of your body.

What happens after the procedure?

After laser hair removal at Georgia Center for Female Health, there’s no downtime, so you can resume regular activities immediately. You might notice some swelling or redness at the treatment site for a few hours.

Treated hair doesn’t fall out right away, but begins shedding over the next few days and weeks. Because hair growth occurs in cycles, numerous hair removal treatments are necessary to help you achieve optimal results.

Don’t settle for waxing, plucking, shaving, and razor bumps when laser hair removal offers a permanent hair loss solution. Schedule a consultation with the Georgia Center for Female Health team by phone or online today.
