About Hair Removal
If you're tired of constantly shaving, waxing, or using topical creams as a way to remove your unwanted body hair, then laser hair removal could be the solution for you. Our plastic surgeons at The Face & Body Center highly recommend laser hair removal for our Flowood and Jackson, MS patients wanting smoother, longer-lasting results without the hassle, pain, and constant maintenance of other methods. Laser hair removal is commonly used for targeting the hair follicles in areas such as the underarms, arms, legs, bikini area, upper lip, chin, and more. Call today to schedule your sessions.
You will be an ideal candidate for laser hair removal if:
- You have darker, coarser hair
- You desire a long-term solution for unwanted body hair
- You have hair that is at least 1/4" long
- You are in overall good health

What to Expect
Laser hair removal sessions are very quick, lasting only a few minutes depending on the area being treated. Our team member will pass the GentleYAG laser device over the desired areas. When this occurs, you should expect to feel bursts of cool air accompanied by a slight stinging sensation, comparable to that of a rubber band snap. Afterward, you may want to apply a soothing lotion such as aloe vera to calm the redness, but there is no downtime and few side effects from the procedure.
You will usually require multiple sessions to achieve the maximum amount of hair reduction. You can schedule your treatments about six weeks apart according to your hair growth cycle. You should gradually begin to see visibly less hair in the treated areas after each session, but can expect to see the final results around six weeks after your last treatment. These results are generally long lasting but it is possible for the hair to regrow in the treated areas, especially if you experience a drastic change in hormones, which can occur during events such as pregnancy.
