Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the United States in the past couple of years. Laser hair removal allows you to say goodbye to unwanted hair and say hello to skin that is smooth. You will no longer need to remove hair everyday with methods that leave you with bumps, nicks, and burns.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. During treatment, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons will pass a laser beam through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser will damage the hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth.
Even though the process significantly slows hair growth, it does not always guarantee permanent hair removal. Several laser hair removal treatments are typically required to provide an extended hair-free period with periodic maintenance.
Laser hair removal in Lexington, South Carolina, can remove unwanted hair in nearly any area. Common treatment areas include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. Laser hair removal has the following benefits:
- Precision – Dark, course hair can be targeted without damaging the surrounding skin.
- Speed – Each laser pulse only takes a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs simultaneously.
- Predictability – After three to five sessions, approximately 90% of patients will experience permanent hair loss.
