Laser Hair Removal

Are you tired of shaving and plucking unwanted hair?

Laser hair removal significantly reduces and slows hair regrowth, giving you more time to do what you love. 

The board-certified plastic surgeon at Frisco Plastic Surgery & MedSpa can help Frisco, TX, patients permanently reduce unwanted hair.

What Is Laser Hair Removal? A Non-Invasive Treatment

Hair removal lasers target the melanin in hair follicles without heating the rest of the skin. The intense heat of the laser damages the follicle to inhibit hair growth effectively.

The laser targets the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. This precision helps effectively rid the area of hair without irritating the skin. 

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Certain candidates are more suited for laser hair removal than others. We'll consider the following factors when determining if laser hair removal is right for you:

Skin Type

The laser works by heating dark colors in the follicle, which destroys the follicle. Because of this, the treatment works best on those with a combination of light skin and dark hair. However, newer lasers are being produced for patients with darker skin tones.

Hair Type

Similar to skin tone, the ideal hair type for treatment is dark and coarse hair, rather than fine and light hair. The laser will have greater difficulty discerning between light skin and light hair, resulting in an ineffective laser hair removal treatment.

Popular Laser Hair Removal Areas

  • Arms
  • Upper Lip
  • Chin

Step-by-Step Process of Laser Hair Removal

Most laser hair removal sessions can be completed in under an hour, with no downtime.

Trimming the Hair

At the beginning of your session, our technician will trim your hair to a few millimeters above the surface of your skin.

Protecting the Eyes

Safety is of the utmost importance to us, which is why you will wear eye protection to filter out harmful light.

Providing Comfort

We may use the Zimmer Cool Air, a machine that cools your skin to make you more comfortable during your treatment. 

Performing the Treatment

During your treatment, the technician will press a hand-held laser device on the treatment area. You will likely feel a slight stinging sensation, which has been compared to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. 

Repeating the Process

Multiple treatments are recommended for successful hair removal. The results of your laser hair removal will become more evident after successive treatments when the majority of the hairs in the treatment area have stopped growing.

How Many Sessions  are Recommended?

/

Since hair grows in cycles and only hairs in the growth stage are affected by laser hair removal, the treatment typically requires three to six sessions to produce the desired results. We recommend your treatment sessions be scheduled six to eight weeks apart.

What's the Cost of Laser Treatment?

/

Laser hair removal treatment is not covered by insurance, but our office offers financing through CareCredit®, ALPHAEON® Credit, and United Medical Credit to help patients budget the cost of treatment.
