Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 12, 2017
"Before getting anything done on my body, I (obviously) wanted to do my research and make sure I was going to a credible facility. I heard a lot about Austin Weston and decided after speaking with the consultant provided to me, that this was the right choice for me! At Austin Weston they are clean, professional, and not awkward about talking about your body at all. I was super nervous for my first consultation, but was MORE than pleasantly surprised by how thorough and friendly the consultants were. My doctor for my breast augmentation was Dr. Weston and I could not have been happier with my results. Dr. Weston is quirky, smart, and extremely good at what he does. My results said it all! I am extremely happy with my results and how natural my outcome was. Recovery was quick, and they were on call for any concern I had (like my dog jumping on my chest...I kid you not). I have referred many friends to Dr. Weston, and the Austin Weston center, and no one has had one negative thing to say about them, or the work they have had done. This is a place you can trust.(continued)...Following my breast augmentation (about a year and a half later), I was super interested in the skincare aspect of Austin Weston, since I am 25 years old and want to make sure I get on top of my skincare now as opposed to later. I met with Savannah Marks, to discuss micro needling (to help with my acne scarring from high school, and prevent wrinkles). I have now been seeing Savannah for about 5 months for laser hair removal as well, and she literally works magic. Savannah is incredibly sweet, and understanding of the services I am looking for. She keeps me updated on all the latest skincare products, and lets me try different sample to see what works for me. I would highly recommend visiting Savannah for your skincare needs. I never thought my skin could look and feel so great, and it has been a huge insecurity of mine since I was in high school, and Savannah has completely rejuvenated my skin. I could not thank her, or Dr. Weston enough for all they've done for me and many others."- K.D. / Yelp / Aug 08, 2017
Laser hair removal is a safe process that is suitable for many patients. In your initial consultation, one of our licensed estheticians will talk with you about your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. People who get the best results out of laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in good overall physical health
On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, you can lie in a private treatment room as the areas of the face and body are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the procedure, one of our licensed estheticians will stretch out the area that is being treated to create a clear pathway between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will focus on and disable the follicle, which stops the hair from growing again. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery targets only the hair follicle to preserve the skin and other tissue in the areas being treated.
What to Expect
Although the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may feel like a light sunburn after your session since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following a appointment, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to treat any mild discomfort.
