Why Shave, Pluck, or Wax? Laser Hair Removal Is Easier Than Ever

Nearly everyone has body or facial hair they’d rather not have. That’s why so many people turn to shaving, plucking, waxing, bleaching, and more to get rid of unwanted hair. But what if you didn’t need to bother with time-consuming hair removal strategies anymore?

Laser hair removal is one of the top cosmetic procedures available. With no downtime and almost no discomfort, laser technology targets and destroys unwanted hair. In just a few treatments, hair practically vanishes and you have a newfound confidence in your skin.

Unwanted hair can be embarrassing and frustrating, while traditional hair removal like waxing and plucking are time-consuming and less effective. Let our aesthetics team at SkinReMEDI help you find an easier solution.

Visit one of our two convenient locations in Atlanta or Alpharetta, Georgia, for effective laser hair removal and never waste time shaving, plucking, or waxing unwanted hair again.

Eliminating unwanted hair is easy with laser hair removal

At SkinReMEDI, we use the Candela™ elōs Plus® for fast, effective laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works by damaging hair at the follicle so it grows back less often and less coarse.

While other methods of hair removal cut the hair at the skin or pull it out of the follicle, light from the laser generates heat that selectively reaches melanin (pigment) in the hair inside the follicle. Our aestheticians use the elōs Plus® to damage the follicle responsible for hair growth.

It’s the heat energy that destroys the follicle, making it harder for hair to grow back. Over time, hair in the treated area gets finer and virtually disappears. The laser technology doesn’t damage the surrounding skin, so there’s no downtime associated with treatment.

Laser treatment is fairly comfortable, with many people reporting the sensation feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin. For sensitive areas, our team can apply a topical anesthetic to help you stay comfortable.

Before your appointments, be sure to follow our guidelines. In general, shaving 24-48 hours before your laser hair removal session is fine, but you should avoid waxing or tweezing the hair prior to treatment.

Most patients see the best results with a series of six treatments. Hair growth follows a cycle, so scheduling your sessions at specific intervals ensures all unwanted hair in the area gets laser treatment. 

Is laser hair removal right for you?

Many people in generally good health who are bothered by unwanted hair are candidates for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works on virtually any part of the body, including your:

Laser hair removal works best on lighter skin tones and darker hair. Your SkinReMEDI aesthetician lets you know if laser hair removal is recommended for your skin type and hair color.

Our team works with every patient to set goals for laser hair removal and determine a treatment plan. Most patients see significantly thinner, sparser hair in the treatment area about eight weeks after their final laser session at SkinReMEDI.
