Laser Hair Removal Procedure in Plano TX Area


What is laser hair removal?

Drs. Achtman and McConnell of DSA Dermatology are pleased to offer laser hair removal to reduce or eliminate hair in a specific area of the body or face. Using controlled precision laser light, the hair follicles are damaged in the treatment area to keep them from producing hair in the future. With one to two treatments, patients will experience significant hair reduction and thinning in the treated area, while several more treatments will allow patients to achieve full removal of hair in the treated area. During an initial consultation appointment, our providers will determine if laser hair removal is appropriate and discuss with patients the process they will undergo to achieve results.


What should I expect from my laser hair removal treatment sessions?

Laser hair removal starts with an evaluation. During this initial appointment, our doctors will determine if the patient is an appropriate candidate for this treatment. Once patients have decided to move forward with treatment, they will schedule their first treatment sessions with Drs. Achtman or McConnell. Patients return to the office where the laser treatment is performed quickly and easily, treating the areas of concern. Patients can expect for several days after their treatment to see hair falling out from the treatment area. These hair follicles will never produce more hair. With each treatment, less and less hair remains until patients achieve full hair removal. This may take up to six treatments to achieve, with each session spaced several weeks apart. We encourage patients to take full advantage of this during the winter months to prepare them for the summer with full removal!


What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

There are many advantages to laser hair removal which is why patients ask about this treatment for cosmetic enhancement of the face and body. Laser hair removal is:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Affordable
  • Permanent
  • Comfortable

Patients interested in laser hair removal or reduction can connect with our team and request more information about this and other cosmetic services available at DSA Dermatology.
