What kind of laser does Southern Aesthetics use to remove hair?

There are countless laser hair removal devices on the market, but they are not all created equal. At Southern Aesthetics Med Spa, we are proud to offer the Nd:YAG and Alexandrite laser, which is a newer and more advanced laser than most med spas use. Unlike most devices that use heat, our laser is unique in that it uses a “Cool Laser.” Previously, heat-powered lasers were only effective on lighter skin tones and could be extremely painful (especially in intimate areas). Our lasers are painless and work on ALL skin types and tones! In fact, our laser has ultrasonic benefits that we use in other treatments, such as Cool Laser Therapy.

What areas of the body can I get lasered?

Clients most commonly request laser hair removal in the bikini/brazilian area, armpits, legs, back, neck, abdomen, and chest. The benefit of laser hair removal is that it is non-invasive, making it suitable for use on most parts of the body. In short, if you have a problem with hair growth, we can probably fix it.

How long does it take to see laser hair removal results?

The average patient requires 3+ laser sessions to see noticeable results, which can take up to 4 months! So, if you want to be hairless by next year, now is the time to begin!

Because our hair follicles are all in different stages of growth at any given time, targeting every hair in a region requires multiple sessions. To achieve the best results, the average patient requires 5-8 treatment sessions. These sessions are scheduled every 4-6 weeks.

Is laser hair removal permanent? What can I expect?

YES (and no). The best part about laser hair removal is that the results are permanent once the hair follicle is destroyed! When a new hair is killed, it rarely regrows. However, laser hair removal will not completely remove hair from an area. The majority of patients report 70-90% hair reduction in treated areas. Spare hairs that do appear are thinner and softer than they were previously. It also significantly reduces the likelihood of ingrown hairs!

How long do laser hair removal appointments last?

Treatment times range from 10-45 minutes depending on the body part, number of areas treated, and the size of your individual hair follicles. Laser hair removal is a quick procedure in comparison. Many patients fit them in during their lunch break!

Is there any recovery or after-treatment instructions?

There is no need for recovery! You can resume your normal routine immediately following treatment. In general, clients report only minor redness and no discomfort. We do recommend that you wear loose clothing and avoid the sun on the day of and after your appointment because treated skin is sensitive and prone to burning.

How much does laser hair removal cost at Southern Aesthetics?

Because of the size and time required to treat, pricing varies depending on the body part we are servicing. Laser hair removal at Southern Aesthetics begins at $150 for small areas. During a consultation, we can provide you with a price estimate based on the areas of interest. Our prices are also available on our laser page.
