Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You? Atlanta Spa DiscussesAlthough laser hair removal is safe for all skin types, we recommend a cosmetic consultation to determine the specific laser treatment needed for your specific hair removal needs. The settings on the lasers can be adjusted depending on your hair and skin color. The key to successful hair removal is based on the type of laser used. AYA continues to utilize the most innovative technology as well as implement vast amounts of research. This year, AYA became a member of The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS). We strive to provide our patients the safest and most optimal laser treatments while integrating ASLMS standards in order to ensure our patients receive the most successful results.

Laser hair removal can be performed on the face, back, under arms, legs, chest, and bikini area. Due to the staggered nature of hair growth, some hairs actively grow while others may remain dormant; therefore, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments. During your consultation, AYA estheticians will determine the number of laser hair removal treatments needed for complete hair removal as each patient is different. Typically, most patients require four to six hair removal treatments, but it is recommended to undergo a series of eight treatments which should be spread out during a six week timespan. In order to maintain results, it is important for patients to cover skin when outdoors and avoid direct sunlight as UV exposure may cause hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
