What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal, offered in-house by our Houston clinic, uses cutting-edge, targeted laser technology to permanently destroy hair, preventing it from growing ever again. You can use it in a variety of treatment areas across the face and body, including:

  • Mustache/upper lip
  • Cheeks
  • Chin/jawline
  • Underarms
  • Stomach
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini line

Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and FDA-approved. While safe for most body parts, you should know that permanent laser hair removal is not suitable for thin skin or areas covered by tattoos.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses cutting-edge laser technology to strategically identify, target, and destroy hair follicles. Laser hair removal technology strategically destroys cells containing darker hair pigments while avoiding cells containing lighter skin pigments. The technology sends intense bursts of heat and light to the target cells.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need?

Most of our patients need a series of laser hair removal treatments to achieve the desired, permanent effects. There is some variation among patients. The number of sessions depends on the treatment area, the sensitivity of the skin, and the coarseness of your hair.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ

For optimal results, avoid exposing the treated area to the sun for 2 to 4 weeks prior to your treatments. Sun exposure can increase your risk of complications, so make sure to use a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or greater that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.

You should also stop waxing, tweezing, threading, depilatories and electrolysis for at least 3 weeks prior to treatment and throughout treatment. You should, however, shave the treatment area the day of or night before your appointment.

Laser hair removal targets and disables hair follicles with non-invasive laser energy without harming the surrounding skin.

Laser hair removal only works on active hair follicles. Because not all hair follicles are active at any given time, one treatment cannot disable every targeted follicle. Therefore, we recommend that you have at least 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. This will vary from patient to patient, depending on the area you want to treat and your goals.

We recommend that you stay out of the sun for at least one week following treatment and continue to apply SPF 30 or greater for long-term skin health.

You may experience some redness following your treatment, but this should dissipate in the hours after treatment.
