Laser Hair Removal in Augusta, GA
Laser hair removal can help you save time and irritation by permanently eliminating the need for ongoing hair removal. At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Troy Austin, state-of-the-art laser hair removal treatments are available for residents of Augusta, Evans, Columbia County, and adjoining areas in Georgia and South Carolina.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
No matter what area of the body you want to remove hair from, laser hair removal can destroy active hair follicles with minimal discomfort in only a few minutes. At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery we use the LightSheer® DESIRE™ by Lumenis®. One to three weeks after treatment with the LightSheer® DESIRE™ treated hair will fall out naturally. To fully eliminate all the hair from any region, you will require a series of treatments, but results are noticeable after just the first treatment, which demonstrates the efficacy of this procedure. After every treatment, you will progressively see fewer and fewer hairs grow back in the treated area. It is important that you complete the entire series of treatments to achieve the maximum reduction in hair re-growth.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
The LightSheer® DESIRE™ is one the most innovative lasers on the market, offering men and women the following benefits:
- Pain-free without topical anesthetic
- Less prep time
- Short treatment time
Who can benefit from Laser Hair Removal?
The LightSheer® DESIRE™ delivers energy that is attracted to the hair’s pigment, just like darker colors attract sunlight. For this reason, laser hair removal is most effective on people with dark, coarse hair and a fair complexion. Nonetheless, at Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery anyone can benefit from laser hair removal, because we have many different types of lasers available to treat different skin types and complexions, including those with darker skin tones or lighter hair. Every laser hair removal treatment provided by our team of experts is highly personalized and tailored to each individual.
Does Laser Hair Removal work on people with darker skin?
Yes. Thanks to advances in laser technology, laser hair removal can now be performed effectively on virtually any skin color and hair type. Our different types of lasers allow us to accommodate the wide variance in hair and skin color and provide effective treatment for all our patients. Because dark hair is treated most effectively, people with red, blonde, and gray hair may require more treatment sessions. During your initial consultation, our team will assess your skin type, hair color and skin sensitivity to determine which type of laser treatment will be most effective for you.
What does Laser Hair Removal feel like?
Many people compare the sensation of the laser’s pulsing beams to feeling the snap of a rubber band against the skin, and the procedure is described more as “annoying” than “painful.” Luckily, a treatment session usually takes under an hour, and there is no discomfort after the procedure.
