Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a safe, effective and convenient alternative to other methods, such as shaving, waxing, plucking or electrolysis. Lasers can treat large areas quickly, often in the time it would take to shave. Improvements may be seen after only one treatment, but a series of treatments is typically required to achieve desired results.
People of all skin colors and hair types will benefit from some amount of delayed hair re-growth for up to six months after only one treatment. However, because not all hair follicles are active at the same time, multiple treatments are usually needed to remove all hair from each area. Most people require six to eight treatments, scheduled four to six weeks apart. After the initial round of treatments, your doctor may recommend maintenance treatments once or twice per year.
What to expect:
During treatment, you will experience mild to moderate discomfort similar to being lightly snapped by a rubber band. Most patients tolerate the procedure without anesthesia, but anesthesia may be recommended for sensitive areas. This may include a numbing cream applied to the skin one hour before treatment. Laser hair removal is available at our Georgetown, Cedar Park, Harker Heights, San Marcos and Southwest Austin locations. (To learn more, click here.)
