Top Reasons to Consider Laser Hair Removal

Woman Receiving Facial Laser Hair Removal Atlanta GA

While it may seem silly when you stop to think about it, people view hair on the head as attractive and desirable, but hair on other parts of the body is often considered embarrassing and unwelcome. Women are especially prone to these concerns in terms of hair on their legs, underarms and face. Men, on the other hand, tend have less embarrassment with body hair, but many wish to have the hair on their back removed. Removing hair in the right places can drastically improve your self confidence. The question is: how should you remove it?

The most common methods of removing unwanted hair include shaving with a razor, special hair removal creams and waxing. Unfortunately, these tools don’t work well for everyone, and they come with several drawbacks, such as discomfort, irritation or the fact that they need to be repeated often. Whether you are tired of waxing your back regularly or just not getting a close enough shave on your legs, laser hair removal may be the answer you are looking for.

Laser hair removal should be performed by a skilled and qualified medical professional. It is effective and safe for all skin types. There are various laser hair removal technologies available, but most rely on concentrated or pulsed energy to target the pigment of hair follicles, rendering it damaged and unable to grow in the future. Laser hair removal is an in-office procedure that can be performed in minutes. Typically, a numbing cream is used, but the process is overall painless and recovery time is little to none. Multiple treatment sessions are often needed to attain ideal results – however, the results of laser hair removal are permanent! In fact, when it comes to permanent hair removal, laser technology is one of the few options available.

Here are some top reasons to consider laser hair removal:

Your Skin Quality and Health

Laser hair removal is ideal for those that suffer from frequent ingrown hairs, razor rash, razor burn, chemical burns or irritation from other hair removal methods. It is also good for those that have a lowered immune system, as traditional (temporary) hair removal methods regularly expose the skin to cuts, irritation and tiny scars can that compromise the skin’s integrity and leave it less protected.

Your Cost Over Your Lifetime

At first, you may think you can’t afford laser hair removal. But think of the big picture. The cost of temporary hair removal (razors, creams, waxing) over the course of your life can add up to an expense far beyond that of the life-long results of a handful of sessions in laser hair removal.

Thinning and Shaping Versus Total Removal

Regardless of where it appears on the body, hair grows in cycles. This means that not all hairs in a certain area are growing at the same time. Laser technology allows you to use this to your advantage. With greater adaptability to your hair growth cycle, you can thin and shape your unwanted hair as you desire. Women often do this with their pubic hair, while men choose to thin and shape their chest or facial hair.

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!

Coriana W.

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.

Jenny S.

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.

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!
