Tired of shaving? Our Atlanta laser hair removal specialists at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center in Duluth, GA (north of Atlanta) provides an effective solution for eliminating unwanted hair on any area of the body with laser hair removal in about one hour. Popular areas for hair removal include: bikini area, legs, underarms, arms, face & chest.
Hair grows in cycles making multiple hair removal treatments necessary for permanent results. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin color, hair color and hair texture. Laser Lights hair removal patients will require 2-3 treatments as the process is only effective on hair during the early growing cycle. Touch up sessions will be necessary to treat these follicles when they re-enter the early growth phase. For most patients, we recommend up to six visits for full, permanent hair removal; although, some patients will see semi-permanent results in as little as one visit.

Laser hair removal patients should discuss their desired results and expectations with their laser hair technician at the initial consultation. Together, you can decide if laser treatment is the best option for your hair removal needs. Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center’s laser equipment is FDA approved and safe for all skin types. We have 12+ medical grade lasers for different skin types, and our procedures include birth mark removal, wrinkle removal, freckle removal, vein removal, and tattoo removal. There is little pain associated with laser hair removal treatments and downtime is minimal.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the specific pigments in the hair. The hair absorbs the laser light and allows it to travel down to the follicle. The hair follicle is damaged in the process preventing future hair growth.
I’ve heard laser hair removal only works on fair-skinned people. Is it more effective on certain skin tones?
Because the light is attracted to pigments, laser hair removal works best on individuals with fair skin and dark hair. However, Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center’s affiliation with Dr. David Whiteman means that we can provide patients with the best in medical grade laser technology. Our multiple lasers are suitable for different skin tones and hair types. Patients with extremely dark skin may be prescribed a bleaching cream to administer to the treatment areas 4-6 weeks beforehand to increase the contrast between the skin tone and hair color. Lighter hair (very light blonde, white, and gray) cannot easily be removed with lasers.
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal works best with darker hair. However, laser hair removal at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center is suitable for most individuals who would like to eliminate patches of unwatched hair on the body. As previously mentioned, lighter hair (very light blonde, white, and gray) cannot easily be removed with lasers. Hair can be removed from all areas of the body including the bikini area, legs, arms, underarms, chest, face, and more.
Is there any downtime with laser hair removal?
While some patients experience temporary redness and sometimes irritation in the treatment area, downtime with laser hair removal is minimal. It is imperative, however, that laser hair removal patients follow their specific aftercare instructions and avoid sun exposure for 4-6 weeks prior and 4-6 weeks after treatment.
Why do I need more than one laser hair removal treatment?
Hair grows in phases—anagen (growth), catagen (resting), and telogen (shedding). Laser hair removal is only effective when hair is in the anagen stage of growth, therefore multiple treatments are necessary in order to ensure all hair is in the anagen stage during treatment for effective laser hair removal results.
