What is Laser Hair Removal?
Hair removal with a laser is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in America. It's an effective method for the long-term reduction or removal of hair follicles on the body and face. This laser treatment usually leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother and produces longer-lasting results compared to other common hair removal methods. At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic in San Antonio, TX, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher performs safe and effective laser hair removal services for both women and men in frequently requested areas, including the arms, legs, back, face, chest, and bikini area. To learn more about achieving smoother skin with laser hair removal, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Boucher.
Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
Once we have created your personalized treatment plan, you can relax as your session begins. Your technician will stretch out the area to create a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again while preserving the surrounding skin. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Although laser hair removal is relatively gentle and tolerable, your skin may look like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you will be able to resume all normal activities, but you need to refrain from exercise or lengthy exposure to the sun for about a day as the skin recovers. We recommend the use of soothing creams or cold packs to alleviate any discomfort.
