In today’s fast-paced world, finding time to shave or wax unwanted hair is difficult. As well as with the cost of buying new razors, arranging waxing appointments can become difficult. Thankfully, you can leave these struggles in the past with a laser hair removal procedure at Trilogy Med Spa in Atlanta and Alpharetta, Georgia.
Our facility is home to top-of-the-line equipment and board-certified staff members. Dr. Windsor is our capable, board-certified physician, specializing in pain management and Dr. Mullins is a talented, board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic procedures.
Laser hair removal is beneficial because it can target almost any area of the body regardless of skin color. Treated areas include:
Many of our Alpharetta patients seek the procedure to remove hair from large areas, hard-to-reach places, or areas that they tend to shave more frequently, such as the legs.
The laser treatments are very precise, and our physicians are careful not to damage the surrounding skin when targeting hair follicles. This is a perk for people who are specifically targeting regions such as the upper lip or hairline.
Here at the Trilogy Med Spa, the equipment we use is Diolaze from Inmode. This type of laser treatment is fairly quick, as the highly concentrated laser will work on many hairs at once. If your goal is a small area, then the physician may finish the area within a few minutes, while larger areas can take up to an hour.
Your physician will apply a topical numbing cream before they begin, but during the procedure, you may feel slight discomfort at the site of the laser. Afterward, you can apply ice packs, lotions, or cool water to relieve any lingering pain and should avoid sun exposure.
Your skin will feel sensitive over the days immediately following the treatment. You may also notice some redness in the area, for which you can apply cool compresses.
Treatment is often done safely and effectively. However, potential (although rare) side effects that could occur include:
Our Alpharetta physicians are well-trained to deal with complications when removing unwanted hair, should they arise. Call us right away if you have any questions or concerns about your recovery.
The candidates who can expect the best results from laser hair removal include individuals with light skin and dark, coarse hair. This combination allows for the melanin in the hair to be easily targeted and destroyed.
Many facilities find it difficult to treat blonde and grey hair due to a lack of pigment. However, our laser hair removal treatment can produce a shorter wavelength, making it easier to treat patients with light hair.
With new advancements in technology constantly emerging, we can advise you on the best course of action. Contact us for a consultation so that we can determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
How should I prepare?
If you have an upcoming hair removal session booked, you should avoid waxing and shaving for six weeks beforehand. You should also try to avoid too much exposure to the sun right before and after your session. Both recommendations are to ensure that your treatment is as effective as possible.
How many sessions will I need?
Most of our Alpharetta patients will experience permanent results after 3-7 sessions.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Our laser hair removal treatment options offer permanent hair growth reduction, of up to 80% and can reduce the need for plucking and waxing.
