Laser Hair Removal Houston
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Excess hair is a problem for many men and women. The maintenance of shaving, tweezing, waxing and threading can be time consuming and messy. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted body hair.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an efficient way to remove unwanted hair for both men and women, regardless of skin type or tone. It is a good option for those hard-to reach-places, too. Men who have a significant amount of back hair would also benefit from laser hair removal. If you are generally frustrated with the time it takes to maintain smooth and hair-free skin, you would be a good candidate for laser hair removal.
What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
- Overall lower cost when compared to long-term waxing and even shaving due to the cost of blades
- Convenience; a few treatments provide long-lasting results
- Less painful than waxing or threading
- No more unsightly hair when wearing bathing suits or tank tops
- Less maintenance, more free time
- Smooth skin
How Does it Work?
The laser used in the handheld device delivers a highly concentrated beam of light that targets the hair follicle. Once heated, the hair follicle is damaged and falls out. The heat generated is safe, and because of the precision of the device, only the target area is treated, so the surrounding skin is not affected.

How Many Laser Hair Treatments Are Needed?
Hair grows in cycles. To treat all hairs in any given area, a few treatments will be necessary. The growth cycle is around ten weeks, so it is recommended that additional treatments take place eight weeks apart. Patients usually require several treatments for optimal success.
How Long Does a Laser Hair Treatment Take?
Depending on the area being treated, a laser hair removal treatment can take anywhere from a couple of minutes to an hour. Your upper lip will be quicker, requiring just a few minutes, while your legs or back area will take longer.
Is the Treatment Painful?
Most patients do not find laser hair removal to be painful. Many report feeling a slight pinching sensation similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin. After your laser hair removal treatment, you may feel like you have a slight sunburn, but moisturizers or a cool compress can help with any discomfort.
Are There Any Risks?
The biggest risk with laser hair removal is protecting the eyes during treatment. Both you and your technician will be wearing protective goggles so there is no need for concern.
Will it Work on My Hair Color?
Our lasers can treat the various colors of hair, but blonde, gray, or light red can be more difficult to treat.
Are There Places Where Laser Hair Removal Shouldn’t Be Used?
It is important to avoid any treatments around the eyes. To prevent the risk of eye damage, the unibrow and any upper cheek facial hair will need to be waxed or tweezed because of the risk from the laser.
Can’t I Just Use an At-Home Laser?
An at-home laser typically uses IPL technology, which is not only less effective than as our lasers, but it can also be more dangerous. These devices do not provide the same safety controls when it comes to cooling. The can also be more time consuming, more painful and ultimately produce poor quality results. When considering laser hair removal in Houston, it is best to leave it to a professional to ensure your safety and results.
What is the Difference Between Laser Hair Removal and Electrolysis?
Electrolysis can be effective, but it is more painful as a tiny needle is inserted into each and every hair follicle, one at a time and a jolt of radio frequency energy is delivered. A laser treatment allows the removal of multiple hair follicles at once, enabling a shorter overall treatment. There is a big time commitment with electrolysis.
