How Laser Hair Removal Works
Popular Treatment – Powerful Results:
Laser hair removal in Atlanta has rapidly become a very popular procedure. Laser hair removal works by using an invisible beam of energy and heat to penetrate into actively growing hair follicles to stop their growth at the source. The procedure destroys the targeted hair follicles, preventing hair from ever growing again, providing permanent hair removal. This process does not damage your skin because the laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair, directing the light beam solely down into the follicle.
Cutting Edge Technology:
At Look Young Atlanta, we use the elōs™ diode laser & the Cutera® CoolGlide laser, which is a state-of-the-art Nd:YAG laser that is effective for permanent hair removal on all skin types. This means that regardless if you have dark or light skin, our laser will be effective at providing you with permanent hair removal.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Permanent laser hair removal can be accomplished on any part of the body from your face, all the way down to your toes. During the procedure patients experience a sensation likened to a rubber band snapping on your skin. While everyone’s pain tolerance is different, most patients don’t find the procedure to be painful. The Cutera® & the elōs™ lasers both feature a built-in cooling system that soothes and softens the skin’s surface during the course of the laser hair removal treatment. The Cutera® also has a wide laser beam which allows treatment of larger patches of hair very quickly so you can get back to your normal life with less unwanted hair.
Laser Hair Removal Is a Treatment that Takes a Few Visits:
Multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the best results. At any point in time, your hair may be in one of 3 stages: the resting stage, the regressive stage, or the active growing stage. Because laser hair removal works on hair in the active growing stage, multiple treatments are necessary in order to effectively destroy all of the hair and produce permanent hair removal. This is also why it is important to stick to the laser hair removal schedule that we provide you in order to get the most hair in the growing phase as possible at the time of treatment, which ensures better results.
