Laser Hair Removal in Athens

Remove Unwanted Hair

Almost everyone has unwanted hair somewhere on their body. Unfortunately, traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weks, but none of them last forever — and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair removel.

How Does It Work?
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again.
Am I A Viable Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and on all types of skin, even tanned or dark skin.
Does It Hurt?
The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. Slight redness or localized swelling can occassionally occur but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Typically, patients will see results in about 6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors.


ABOUT PLASTIC SURGERY

Plastic surgery is a specialty that can be divided into two groups: cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal body structures and improve a person’s appearance. These procedures may not be considered medically necessary, but are performed, instead, to increase a person’s confidence and self-esteem. Liposuction, breast augmentation and tummy tucks are some of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery.

Reconstructive surgery involves those procedures performed to correct abnormal body structures caused by birth defects, trauma, burns, infection or disease. These types of reconstructive surgery include breast reduction, breast reconstruction and treatment of skin cancers. Reconstructive surgery is usually covered by health insurance.
