Exploring your laser treatment options for hair removal helps you better understand which option is best for getting rid of your stubborn unwanted hair. At Marietta Plastic Surgery, we offer the latest in laser hair removal technology.

Why Laser Hair Removal?

Unwanted hair can be removed through a variety of different methods, such as waxing, shaving, and plucking. Specialized devices like the epilator have also been developed as at-home remedies for armpit, leg, or arm hair removal. However, with these do-it-yourself methods, the hair may keep growing back, and you may develop irritation and other side effects.

Laser hair removal can help achieve lasting and more satisfactory results than traditional methods. Laser treatments are quick and almost painless procedures that result in effective long-lasting hair reduction.

How Do Lasers Work in Removing Unwanted Hair?

Lasers are concentrated beams of light energy that are absorbed by the pigments in the hair in a process called selective photothermolysis. The hair absorbs the heat from the laser and transfers it to the hair follicle, which ultimately gets destroyed.

The treatment is non-invasive and can usually be done in less than an hour. Repeated treatments are necessary, since hair follicles grow differently and at varying stages.

What Are Our Laser Treatment Options for Hair Removal?

There are multiple types of laser technology that can be utilized to address unwanted hair in areas like the underarms, bikini area, arms, legs, back, and face. Skin color and hair characteristics are some of the considerations that are assessed to determine the best laser option for you.

One of the advanced laser technologies applied for removing unwanted hair is the DiolazeXL. With the capability to treat a large area, DiolazeXL makes it quick and convenient to reduce hair growth on the legs, chest, or back. The built-in cooling system ensures patient comfort during the procedure.

Another option for removing stubborn hair is the Candela Gentlelase. This powerful 755nm alexandrite laser is recommended for light to medium skin tones (skin types I-IV). The wavelengths emitted by Gentlelase reach deeper into the skin. The cryogen technology brings a cooling sensation to the skin to eliminate discomfort.

Cutera Vantage is a state-of-the-art Nd:YAG laser that has been approved by the FDA for hair removal. The 4-wavelength high-intensity laser comes with CoolGlide technology, its integrated continuous cooling system, for a painless hair removal treatment. It is recommended for use for all skin types (I-VI) and even tanned skin.

Following a thorough consultation, our skincare experts will be able to suggest the best treatment option for you. It is important to undergo a physical examination first so that a personalized approach can be developed to address your needs. We can discuss the pros and cons of each option so you can come to an informed decision.
