Non-Invasive, Effective Hair Removal in Valdosta
Laser hair removal has become a very popular, non-surgical method for hair removal. It is a non-invasive, easily-tolerated method to reduce hair growth.
Modern Technology for Hair Removal with Long-Lasting Results
The target hair follicles are preheated by using optical energy, which creates a thermal path on which the bi-polar radio frequency (RF) travels. RF is delivered directly to the hair follicle. The buildup of current within the follicle causes it to lose the ability to produce hair.
Want a smooth chest, back, arms, or other area? Talk to us about laser hair removal – imagine life without constantly worrying about the appearance of an unattractive over-abundance of hair where you don’t want it. We offer a private consultation at our Valdosta clinic for men who are ready to do something effective about unwanted hair. We also serve patients in Douglas, Thomasville, Lake City, and Madison.
