Laser hair removal (LHR) can help our patients achieve smoother skin and permanently reduce the amount of hair in areas where they don’t want it. This treatment focuses laser energy into the treated hair follicles, destroying the hair at the root and preventing future regrowth. Unlike more localized approaches to treatment such as electrolysis or tweezing, LHR can treat many hairs at the same time and it is a popular choice for larger areas such as the legs, back, and chest.
Please contact us online today or call 972-810-3503 to schedule your appointment. A series of laser hair removal treatments can help you enjoy smoother skin for many years. Wellskin Medical Spa has helped people from the greater Dallas area and throughout Texas feel and look their best with a full menu of skincare treatments.
Are You a Candidate?
- Almost everyone who wants to remove excess hair will be a good candidate for laser hair removal. People with very light hair and skin may see limited results, because the treatment works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicles. In addition, laser hair removal is not safe around the eyes, so it cannot treat excess eyebrow hair.
- During your visit we can discuss all of your cosmetic concerns and put together a treatment package customized for you. In addition to laser hair removal we offer skin rejuvenation treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and laser skin rejuvenation as well as body contouring with CoolSculpting® and Reaction™ by Viora.
About the Treatment
The laser used in the LHR treatment process can only treat hair follicles that are in an active growth phase, so several treatment appointments are needed to reach all active hairs in the treatment area. Our patients typically see the best results after between 2 to 6 appointments.
During treatment, we may begin by numbing the area to be treated with a topical gel if the area is particularly sensitive or if you are concerned about maximizing your comfort. Your treatment professional at Wellskin holds your skin tight and moves the LHR handpiece slowly over the skin as it administers pulses of laser light. Treatment may take anywhere from just a few minutes for a smaller area to over an hour for full treatment of the legs or back.
Results vary from patient to patient depending on factors such as the color and thickness of your hair, your skin color, and the area being treated. After each treatment session, you will be able to see less and less hair. Once the treatment series is complete, most of our patients do not have any noticeable hair on the treated skin for several months or even years. And, when hair growth does resume, in many cases the hairs are thinner, lighter and less numerous than when the first treatment was started.
