Why Laser Hair Removal?
At Southeastern Dermatology, our laser hair removal treatments offer permanent solutions to your unwanted facial and body hair.
Laser hair removal is among the safest and most performed cosmetic treatments in the United States. Women and men who want to do away with unwanted body hair select laser hair removal because it is safe, effective and less painful than waxing and other hair-removal methods.
How It Works?
During laser hair removal sessions, a laser beam penetrates skin and targets hair follicles to prevent future hair growth.
Treatment is typically quick, although how long a session lasts depends on the individual patient and the size of the area that is receiving laser treatment. Smaller areas like the underarms may only take about 15 minutes, but larger areas like legs or back could take longer.
Laser hair removal also boasts no recovery time. Patients return to their normal routines right away.
Studies have shown that nine out of 10 laser hair removal patients who had between three and five treatment sessions achieved the permanent hair removal they were seeking.
Laser hair removal can have a few minor side effects. Not every patient will have side effects, but they can include:
Most of our patients at Southeastern Dermatology report they had no major side effects and are pleased with their results.
In fact, laser hair removal treatments have been considered among the most safe and effective available. Laser hair removal has been approved by U.S. food and drug officials.
