Getting Laser Hair Removal in Atlanta

Laser hair removal is a great option to reduce unwanted hair on places like your face, underarms, chest, back, bikini area, arms, and legs. It also helps to reduce and eliminate ingrown hairs and razor bumps.

Since 2002 we have performed more than 1 million laser hair removal treatments. We can safely treat all skin types and ethnicities, our patients represent more than 52 nationalities. Dr. Kulkin has personally trained his staff of Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Medical Aestheticians. They are all licensed laser practitioners by the Georgia Composite Medical Board.

Laser hair removal is a process and you will need a series of treatments to achieve the best results. We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our licensed laser practitioners to see what laser hair removal can do for you.

Just like a black shirt absorbs the sun’s heat in the summer, the color of your hair absorbs heat from the laser. Through this absorption, the heat enters the hair follicle either damaging it, or destroying it.

So, while it is called laser hair removal, the hair isn’t actually being removed, rather it’s reducing the number of hair follicles and their ability to produce hair by 75% to 90%. At WIFH, all of our laser hair removal packages include 8 treatments at 6-week intervals.

The hair that can be left is much different from the hair that you began with. These remaining hair follicles while not completely destroyed are damaged, and by damaged we mean the follicle has reduced in size, so the hair that it can produce is much finer. They appear lighter in color and grow back very slowly, making maintenance very easy.

We can safely and effectively perform laser hair removal on most areas of the body, including your Face, Neck, Chest, Bikini, Legs, Back, Buttocks, Breasts/Nipples, Ears, Abdomen, Underarms, and Arms. WIFH can also customize a package to meet your unique needs.

Laser hair removal is a fairly low risk treatment treatment provided the practitioner performing the treatment is experienced and the right laser for your skin type is being used. The most common complication from laser hair removal is hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is the temporary darkening of the skin. This can occur in light skinned patients if they have had sun exposure and their skin is tan.

Hyperpigmentation is less common in darker skin types. Hyperpigmentation is not a burn and it does not last. It usually resolves on its own over the course of several days. In rare instances it can last several months, but that is extremely rare. If you experience any issues or have concerns following treatment it is recommended that you reach out to your provider.

Weeks Before Your Treatment

Sunscreen should be used on all skin types all the time, but it is very important while you are having laser hair removal. If you have had recent sun exposure or you can see a visible tan (tan lines) rescheduling your laser hair removal treatment would be advised.

The Week of Your Treatment

Waxing and plucking can reduce the effectiveness of your laser treatment. If you have recently waxed or plucked you should wait at least one week before having your laser treatment. Bleaching is OK, since you are only removing the color of the hair on the surface of the skin, the hair within the follicle will maintain its pigment.

The best way to remove your hair before having your laser hair removal treatment is to shave. With laser hair removal you don’t want any surface hair because laser energy converts to heat energy and when hair gets hot it can singe which can damage or hurt your skin. It is best to shave the day of or the day before your appointment.

The Day of Your Treatment

Before your laser hair removal treatment, make sure you skin is clean and free of makeup, lotions, creams, and deodorant.

We ask that you prep by shaving the area prior to treatment; this can be done the day-of or the day before. Unlike waxing, surface hair is not needed for laser hair removal.

Pain/Discomfort

Laser hair removal is not painless, but most of our patients tolerate treatment really well. For those with sensitivity (roughly 25% of our patients) we can prescribe a numbing cream that you can apply prior to your treatment to reduce any discomfort. This can be discussed during your initial consultation.

Treatment Duration/Frequency

Treatment times can vary anywhere from 3 minutes to 60 minutes plus, depending on the area of the body being treated. An upper lip will take approximately 3 minutes to treat, where as a larger area, like full legs; will take approximately 60 minutes or more.

Although you will need to come in for 8 laser hair removal sessions, you will see a reduction after each and every treatment; you will start enjoying having less hair immediately. Patients typically see a drastic reduction in hair after just a few treatments, but it is important to complete all treatments to see sustainable results and the most reduction.

Patients having their faces treated should expect to need 1-3 touch-up treatments each year to maintain their results after completing their 8-session package. The reason for this is because facial hair is hormonally driven. For more information visit our page on laser hair removal for the face.

There is no downtime after receiving a laser hair removal treatment. You may continue your normal activities immediately following your treatment. You may experience some redness in the skin but it typically dissipates in a matter of minutes. In rare instances some patients may experience redness for up to 24-48 hours.

We believe consultations are very important to help you understand the laser hair removal process. Our consultations give us the opportunity to get to know you and understand your needs as a patient. At your consultation you will meet with a member of our clinical team. At this time we will assess your skin and hair, giving you a realistic expectation of your outcome with laser hair removal.

Because most people have been considering laser hair removal for a long time many patients start treatment the day of their consultation. If you would like to begin treatment following your consultation, simply let us know so that we can schedule the appropriate amount of time.
