Get Rid of Unwanted Hair

We spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars over time to keep unwanted hair away, all the while dealing with the unpleasant side effects of our hair removal efforts like ingrown hairs, infected bumps, rashes, and itching. It is definitely a hairy world out there, but the medspa at Southern Surgical Arts can help you do something about it!

Straight Talk About Vaginal Rejuvenation

Posted by Southern Surgical Arts on Dec 12, 2016 11:49:00 AM

Ok, ladies, let’s talk about something a lot of women are dying to talk about, but are too shy to mention— the female area. Most women don’t realize how many other women deal with the same vaginal issues they have for one simple reason—no one likes to talk about problems “down there.” So the topic becomes taboo, and that leaves us thinking we’re the only ones dealing with problems. Well, that stops today!

How Can Laser Hair Reduction Help You Have a Smoother Summer?

Posted by Southern Surgical Arts on Jul 11, 2016 1:30:00 PM

With summer in full swing, bringing with it shorts, bathing suits, and sleeveless tops, your razor is probably getting quite a workout. And while shaving provides smooth, silky results, those results are temporary, and often accompanied by shaving bumps, cuts, razor burn, ingrown hairs and irritation (saltwater on freshly-shaved legs—ouch!) Fortunately, Southern Surgical Arts has a solution.

Laser hair reduction is a great option if you’re ready to retire your razor and say “bye” to your bandaids. With affordable, customizable treatments for just about any skin tone, brown and black hair can be greatly reduced, and in some cases, virtually eliminated after a series of treatments.

Watch the video below to hear SSA’s Gretchen Dunigan discuss this safe, quick, FDA-approved procedure. To schedule your laser hair reduction treatment, call Southern Surgical Arts at 423-266-3331.
