Are you ready for summer? Baring a little more skin means some extra time with the razor or wax—unless you opt for laser hair removal. This simple cosmetic procedure will save you the time and hassle of frequent shaving, tweezing, and plucking. Talk to a cosmetic professional at Meadows Surgical Arts today about your hair removal needs.
Most people are good candidates for the procedure. The advanced, cutting-edge laser equipment used at Meadows Surgical Arts means that a diverse range of people with varying skin types and tones can take advantage of laser hair removal. This cosmetic procedure is ideal for treating such areas as the legs, armpits, upper lip, and bikini line. In fact, nearly any part of your body with unwanted hair can be treated.
Very little preparation is required for laser hair removal. However, you should have a consultation with a cosmetic professional, during which you will review your medical history and goals for your appearance. It’s best to avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning activities for a period of time prior to the procedure. Furthermore, the best results can be seen when you avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for about six weeks before having laser hair removal.
The laser equipment uses short pulses of intense light that target the hair follicles. The laser renders the hair follicles unable to continue to grow, while leaving the surrounding skin alone. The total length of time that this cosmetic procedure will take depends on the areas you wish to treat. Small areas such as the upper lip will take only a few minutes.
There is no downtime required for laser hair removal. However, you should avoid tanning activities and apply sunblock regularly. The laser affects hair that is in a current growth phase. Since not all of your hair grows at the same time, the best results are achieved with six to 12 treatments.
You can learn more about laser hair removal and schedule your consultation by contacting Meadows Surgical Arts in Commerce, Georgia. Contact us today at (888) 705-3240 or visit our website to learn more. We also offer breast augmentation and weight loss programs.Leave a comment »

Varicose veins often occur in the legs and feet due to the pressure exerted on these areas from standing and walking. When damaged or diseased, superficial veins are often visible through the skin. However, this condition causes more than just cosmetic problems; varicose veins can also cause chronic pain and skin changes such as skin ulcerations.
Watch this video to learn more about the diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins. In the clip, you’ll learn about risk factors for venous insufficiency and how the valves in the veins normally function. You’ll also learn about possible treatment options, such as compression stockings.
For more information about treating your varicose veins, contact Meadows Surgical Arts. You can reach our Commerce, Georgia location at (888) 705-3240. Be sure to ask about our other cosmetic procedures, including breast implants and weight loss programs.Leave a comment »
