Every week, millions of American men and women spend hours removing unwanted hair. Whether they are shaving, waxing, or plucking most would agree that it is an arduous, repetitive task. If you are one of these people, it’s time to learn about the benefits of laser hair removal from experienced doctors in the Plano, Texas, area. With laser hair removal, you can drastically reduce the time spent grooming and devote that time to something more enjoyable.
At DSA Dermatology in Plano, Texas, we offer laser treatments for permanent hair removal. The treatment requires a few sessions for complete hair removal, but in time patients can experience up to 90% removal of unwanted hair for lasting results.
What to expect with laser hair removal
The first step to getting rid of unwanted hair is to schedule a consultation with one of the doctors at DSA Dermatology. During this session, patients can discuss which areas of hair are their biggest concerns and learn about the laser hair removal process. Once patients decide to move forward, they will be given instructions to follow before their first session. The most important thing is to avoid shaving, waxing, or plucking before treatment. It’s also advised to avoid sun exposure as much as possible.
During the hair removal procedure, the laser device is moved along the skin in the desired area, targeting hair follicles that are in their active growth phase. The laser destroys the follicle, which prevents future hair growth. Because hair follicles grow in stages, several sessions are needed to target all of the follicles during the growth phase.
Benefits of laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is versatile and can be used on multiple areas of the body, including the face, legs, back, underarm, and bikini area. Other benefits include:
- Eliminates ingrown hairs
- Quick treatments
- Save money on waxing appointments and different types of temporary hair removal
- No need to grow out hair between treatments
