From the moment we first picked up a razor, it’s been a struggle to achieve smooth, touchable skin. Shaving is not only an inconvenience, but can also cause additional problems including razor burn, bumps, ingrown hair and the inevitable ankle nicks. To add insult to injury, we get to repeat the cycle every day of our busy lives.
With laser hair reduction from Cobb Dermatology & Aesthetics, you can finally ditch the razor, toss your tweezers and wave good-bye to waxing. Over the course of just a few treatments, amazing results without the daily maintenance of shaving with zero daily maintenance. Laser hair reduction is ideal for your legs, underarms and bikini line as well as your lip, chin and face.
Our state-of-the-art laser treatment emits a concentrated beam of light to target the hair at the root. The energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which converts it into heat that damages the hair follicles. Because the root is destroyed, unwanted hair is unable to regrow. Laser hair reduction is ideal for both men and women, as almost any pigmented hair can be treated. Commonly treated areas include underarms, bikini line, legs, face, abdomen and back.
When someone hears the word “laser,” they associate it with heat or burning. However, our laser has built-in contact cooling to protect even the most sensitive skin. Our patients often compare the pain of laser hair reduction to that of tweezing and waxing, with many describing it as a gentle rubber band snap. But unlike traditional hair removal, once the hair is gone, you never have to endure any pain again.
Because our medical team is highly trained and experienced in laser hair removal, you can rest assured that your experience will be completely safe, and any side effects or downtime will be minimal.
Your care plan will depend on the area to be treated, your hair thickness and hair’s growth cycle. However, for most patients, treatments average around six to eight sessions.
Laser treatments can be used to treat hair on almost any area of the face, including the lip area, cheeks and chin. However, it is not recommended for eyebrow shaping due to the risk of eye injury.
