Ditch the Razor

Laser hair removal is a great alternative to shaving, waxing, and hair removal creams. It is a safe, reliable method of permanently removing unwanted hair and is approved by the FDA. Better yet, Horizons Plastic Surgery is the Rome, GA, area leader in laser hair removal treatments.

Dr. Marc Wetherington in Rome, GA, is the area leader for laser hair removal

Laser Hair Removal Rome, GA

Men and women enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. The ideal candidate has light-to-medium skin tones and is bothered by dark hair (black, brown, or red). Popular areas of the body for laser hair removal include facial hair for women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), underarms, arms, legs, and the bikini area.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Intense pulses of light are selectively absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. The damaged hair follicle will no longer support the growth of hair.

Topical numbing cream lessens the discomfort, which has been described as like being stung with a rubber band. There may be a little edema and redness for a few hours. You should avoid the sun and may apply topical aloe vera to the site.

Because not all hair follicles are in the same phase of growth, patients will typically require six to 10 treatments to successfully ablate all the bothersome hair.
