Plucking and waxing is painful and slow—if you’re looking to get rid of unwanted hair on your face, arms, legs, bikini line, or elsewhere, you might want to consider one of the most common, safe, and effective treatments in the US today: laser hair removal at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Columbus.
Laser hair removal works by producing energy that’s absorbed by the pigment/color in the hair shaft. This burns the hair follicles from the inside, stopping hair growth. The darker the hair, the more effective the treatment. And having greater contrast between the hair and the surrounding skin lessens the chance of pigment changes afterward. The laser procedure treats multiple hairs at one time making it ideal for most parts of the body. Small areas, such as the upper lip, can be treated in as fast as a minute.
Although laser hair removal is fast and easy, it is still a medical procedure and carries certain risks. That’s why you should always use a skilled, experienced, and certified practitioner such as those on staff at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Columbus. Call today to schedule a consultation—we look forward to helping you break free from unwanted, unsightly hair growth.
