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.
