Laser hair removal is the preferred solution to long-lasting hair reduction. With laser hair removal treatments at 7 Seas Medical Spa, patients can eliminate unwanted body hair to achieve smooth skin. We offer this treatment to patients living in and around North Augusta, Columbia and Evans, GA.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal, or laser hair reduction, is a hair reduction technique that uses laser energy to precisely target and destroy hair follicles. By eliminating hair follicles, the body is no longer able to produce hair in the treated areas. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we use the LightSheer® DESIRE™ system for laser hair removal. This innovative laser system can be used for all skin types and hair types, allowing patients to address unwanted body hair in the following areas:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of your laser hair removal treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the areas treated and the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?
The LightSheer® DESIRE™ laser is more comfortable than most laser hair removal treatments, so it requires no anesthetic whatsoever. During treatment, the laser device will be passed over the desired areas of the body, delivering laser energy to hair follicles while simultaneously cooling the skin for maximum comfort. Patients often compare this process to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on the skin—mildly uncomfortable, but not painful. A single treatment takes less than one hour.
Is There Downtime After Laser Hair Removal?
After your laser hair removal treatment, there is no downtime required and you will be able to return to work and other activities immediately. You may notice that your skin is red or sensitive, but these are common effects of treatment that will fade within a day or two. We may recommend that you avoid sun exposure for a few days in order to prevent damage to the sensitive skin.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
After your laser hair removal treatment, the treated hairs will shed over the following weeks. Not all hairs grow at the same time, so it is not possible to treat every single hair in one treatment. For this reason, multiple treatments are needed to treat every hair and achieve complete hair removal. However, after the individual hairs are treated, they will be permanently removed.
If you are tired of shaving, waxing and plucking unwanted body hair, contact us today to schedule your consultation for laser hair removal.
