Laser Resurfacing

Smooth, soft hair-free skin can be achieved with laser hair removal in Colleyville. Unlike tweezing, shaving, or waxing, laser hair removal can permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body using beams of highly concentrated light. The procedure is safe and comfortable with little to no downtime required. Laser hair removal should only be performed by a trained professional. If you have additional questions, you can schedule a free consultation.

Understanding Your Treatment

In Colleyville-Southlake, shorts season lasts several months. Laser hair removal has become a popular procedure for removing unwanted hair from legs, underarms, bikini line, back, or face. Laser hair removal is effective because it destroys the hair follicle, thereby inhibiting future growth. During treatment, the laser’s light energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair. The heat from the laser damages the hair follicle but leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. Only follicles in the active growth phase are destroyed.

This procedure has been FDA-approved for permanent hair reduction – meaning that individuals enjoy significant long-term hair reduction over time. In some cases, multiple treatment sessions may produce results that last for several years.

What happens during treatment?

Before laser hair removal, you will receive special preparation instructions. Usually, we suggest that waxing or tweezing be avoided for at least 2 weeks before your appointment. You may shave or use chemical depilatories if you wish.

During your session, a gel or numbing lotion is normally applied to the treatment area for added comfort. A hand-held laser device is then directed at the unwanted hair. Some individuals may experience a sensation of tingling or a slight sting during this process, but the majority of people find these feelings tolerable. The sting feels a bit like a rubber band snapping. Because hair follicles go through cycles of activity and rest, a series of about 4 treatments is usually needed to see ideal results.

What are the side effects?

Laser hair removal is a minor procedure that generally requires little or no recovery time. Some may notice mild redness and swelling in the treated area, but these symptoms usually subside after a few days.

Is it safe?

When performed by a skilled technician, laser hair removal is very safe and effective.
