What To Expect with Laser Hair Removal

Are you tired of shaving? Perhaps your monthly waxing appointments are adding up in expense. Whatever your burden is with unwanted hair, there may be a final solution with laser hair removal. Both men and women can take advantage of Cynosure Laser Hair Removal from Olansky Dermatology and Associates. Using laser therapy, you can have a faster, gentler and more permanent way to remove unwanted hair.

What areas can be treated?
This advanced technology can get rid of hair on the face, abdomen, legs, breasts, underarms and bikini areas for women and the shoulders, back and chest for men. It is FDA approved and effective for all skin types.
How does Cynosure Laser Hair Removal work?
During your treatment, a laser beam is targeted at the affected area of hair. The laser passes through the skin to each individual hair follicle. The Cynosure lasers can be modified in two different wavelengths to accommodate light and dark skin types. The laser technology uses pulsed energy and intense heat to permanently damage the hair follicle and prevent future growth.
How many treatments can I expect?
Because Cynosure can only eliminate actively growing hair, you can expect to need multiple treatments to accomplish your results. The number of sessions depends on your unique hair type and the location of the unwanted hair. In general, treatments for the face and neck should be spaced out every 4-6 weeks, treatments for the back, chest, bikini area and underarms every 6-8 weeks, and legs about every 8-10 weeks. Most patients benefit from 6-8 sessions.
What happens after Laser Hair Removal?
There will be some temporary redness or bumps following your laser treatments. This should dissipate after 24 hours. It may take up to 2 weeks for some of the hairs to fall out. You may notice new hair growth in subsequent weeks, but it will probably be lighter, finer and sparser.

To learn if you are a candidate for laser hair removal, call our experts at Olansky Dermatology & Associates in Atlanta. We can safely eliminate your unwanted hair for a more attractive and hassle-free life.

This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had going to a dermatologist. Every interaction I had with the staff was pleasant and they were so helpful. I had accidentally cancelled my appointment and the girls at the front desk help me get in so I could be seen and someone could help me. Which I really appreciated, most places would have just turned me away. The doctor or pa I saw that day I can’t remember her name was lovely and took great care of me. I will be going to Olansky’s going forward. You will not be disappointed! The staff is excellent!

Dr. Bender honestly changed my life around. I had extremely bad hormonal and cystic acne, and have been told for years that there is nothing I can do but wash my face and etc.. Dr. Bender gave me hope that there is hope she helped get my confidence back and now I’m finally free. She cares about her patients and takes her time with you every visit. If you need help in anything derma-logical then you really need to go to her.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

My husband is a patient of PA Sharon Doering I appreciate all she did for my spouse. She’s very down to earth & made him feel comfortable. Sharon communicated in a way that he can understand.
Thank You

I have had excellent experience at Olansky Dermatology. Dr Burger is meticulous and thorough and has a most pleasant and calm manner. I have every confidence in her and this office.

Cheyenne G.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!
