LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Home / laser treatment
Laser hair removal may help reduce and eliminate hair for up to one year. This simple, effective treatment may also effectively reduce future regrowth, saving you time and discomfort from shaving, tweezing, or waxing. For patients who wish to say goodbye to their razors, the skilled team at Back to 30™ provides laser hair removal at their practice in Upstate South Carolina to significantly reduce hair growth.*
Laser Hair Removal Candidates
Patients with unwanted hair can receive laser hair removal in a variety of areas, such as the:
Ideal candidates for laser hair removal are patients with dark hair and fair skin because the lasers target the pigmentation (color) of the hair follicle. However, technological advancements have made it possible to treat patients with lighter hair and fair or dark skin as well. Results will vary based on hair color, texture, and skin tone. Patients should keep in mind that laser hair removal is not completely permanent. Most patients see some regrowth within several months up to a year after treatment. However, the new growth is typically lighter in color, finer in texture, and there is usually less hair overall.*
Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Prior to any treatment, you will meet with a member of our highly trained team to discuss your treatment goals. An important part of laser hair removal is timing procedures with the growing phases for your hair. During your consultation you can plan the appropriate timeline for treatment.
Technological advancements in laser hair removal have made it possible to treat patients with lighter hair and fair or dark skin.
Before a laser hair removal session, a numbing gel may be applied to the treatment area to help minimize any discomfort. You will be given protective eyewear and your skin will be held taut as we treat the area with our high-powered laser. The hair follicles will absorb the light from the laser, effectively eliminating the hair. Most patients report only mild discomfort that feels similar to the flicking of a rubber band.
You may see some redness or swelling following your treatment, but you should be able to return to work or your regular activities immediately. You should avoid unprotected or prolonged sun exposure in between treatment sessions. Most patients require a total of five to eight treatment sessions, and you can combine your procedure with other services we offer in a 90-day makeover for stunning results once your treatment is finished.* Why Receive Treatment?
Laser hair removal can save you a great deal of time and money long term. After just one treatment, you can see an immediate reduction in visible hair.
