Laser Hair Removal

Ready to step out with smooth, hairless skin and a renewed sense of confidence? Leave shaving, waxing, and plucking in the past with laser hair removal at our Greater Houston, TX, dermatology locations.

Laser hair removal is one of the most advanced, reliable, and effective methods of removing unwanted hair growth. It provides long-lasting results that give you freedom from unwanted hair for years to come.

How does laser hair removal work?

In this procedure, laser heat damages hair follicles to prevent future growth and reveal soft, smooth, stubble-free skin. The device emits light onto the skin’s surface, damaging and disabling the hair follicle for good with little to no discomfort or side effects.

We offer several different types of laser for hair removal, including the effective Nd:YAG laser.

Which areas can I treat with laser hair removal?

The Nd:YAG laser may be used for hair removal in any location, including the following:

  • Underarms
  • Bikini line
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs

Can I have laser hair removal done if I have light hair or deep skin?

The Nd:YAG laser is generally ineffective for light-colored (blonde or grey) hair. It works best for treating dark (brown or black) hair in patients of Fitzpatrick types I to III skin, and in some cases, for light-colored type IV skin.

We recommend extreme caution to those with tanned or deeper skin, as the laser can also destroy melanin, resulting in white patches of skin (leukoderma).

Does laser hair removal hurt?

People often describe the feeling as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin with each laser pulse. You may notice a bit of soreness or warmth, but most people find this easy to tolerate.

How long does laser hair removal take?

Facial procedures and smaller areas take a few minutes, while larger areas such as the back and chest require 1 to 2 hours to treat.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Most people need several treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve long-term hair reduction. We offer package pricing for your convenience.
