Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is a very real and possible solution for you if you’ve grown weary of all the shaving, tweezing, or waxing you are doing to remove unwanted hair.
This procedure is one of the most common and easy cosmetic procedures done in the United States. With laser hair removal, highly concentrated light is radiated into the hair follicles, and as the follicles absorb the light, the hair is destroyed.
Each laser pulse takes a mere fraction of a second, treating multiple hairs simultaneously. These high-tech and innovative lasers are focused enough to remove hair and treat an area about the size of a quarter every single second! What is even more fascinating, is that 90% of patients have reported that they have benefited from permanent hair loss in treated areas.
Laser treatment for hair removal is a safe and noninvasive treatment procedure that will require an initial consultation before treatment, as it may not be for every patient. There is a small recovery period, and patients will need to adhere to the clinician’s instructions and recommendations following the treatment. Upon completion of a procedure, slight swelling, redness, and some discomfort is normal; however, patients are generally given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, and/or cold water to help ease any discomfort. Should any complications arise, which would be extremely rare, patients are encouraged to contact our office right away.
We offer the latest technology for the removal of unwanted hair that’s safe, fast, and effective. It generally takes 3-6 treatments, performed in 4-6 week intervals. This treatment generally cannot treat blond, red, or gray hair. In speaking with the professional staff of Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, patients may also seek out other treatment options that are available for hair removal.
