Many men and women are bothered by unwanted hair on areas such as the face, arms, back, chest, bikini line, or legs. Some of the options for removing this hair are almost as unpleasant as the hair itself. Shaving, waxing, tweezing and depilatory creams can be painful, costly and messy, and only provide a temporary solution to the problem. What if you could permanently reduce the amount of unwanted hair quickly and comfortably? Now you can, through a series of laser hair removal treatments at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery.
How does it work?
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again.
Am I a viable candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and on all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin).
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The treatments cause minimal to no discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the light snap of a rubber band. A little redness at the treatment site or slight localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
How many treatments are required?
Typically, patients will see results in 4-6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. Your laser hair specialist will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.
Often, hair removal is combined with other laser treatments at our medical spa. Using the most advanced laser treatment system available, we can correct age spots, sun damage wrinkles, vascular lesions, acne, scars and other skin concerns.
