If you are someone living in the Austin area, we have the perfect solution to help you remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal at Texas Laser and Aesthetics can relieve you of the need to shave, wax, or pluck. This is a long-term solution for unwanted hair.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
This is a cosmetic technique that has become one of the most performed procedures in the US. This is due to its ability to conveniently treat unwanted hair and prevent its future growth. The procedure works by destroying individual follicles, which prevents them from growing hair.
The process involves melanin, the pigment in your hair, absorbing the energy from the laser. The thermal energy destroys the bulb at the base of the hair. You will only need a few treatment sessions for the long-term removal of unwanted hair.
One of the advantages of laser hair removal is its ability to selectively target hair and leave surrounding skin tissue intact. Each laser pulse only takes a fraction of a second to send, treating many hairs at once. The laser equipment allows us to treat an area the size of a quarter every single second.
How Should I Prepare for My Procedure in Austin?
Limit waxing, plucking, and electrolysis for six weeks beforehand. The laser equipment will not have any follicles to target if you wax or pluck them. Refrain from exposure to UV radiation for six weeks before and after your procedure. This is because exposure to sunlight makes the process less effective. It can also make post-treatment complications more likely.
Why Should I Consider This Procedure?
You may want to consider laser hair removal if you currently have unwanted body or facial hair. This hair may restrict your ability to wear certain clothing or make you feel self-conscious. You may also make a good candidate if you are tired of different methods of hair removal at home.
What Will Happen at My Appointment?
Before your laser hair removal procedure begins, we will place protective eye shields over your eyes. We will trim the hair in the treatment area to just above the surface of your skin.
Next, we will adjust the equipment based on your hair color, location, and thickness. We will perform a test treatment to see how the follicles react. Your skin will then transmit the laser energy to the melanin in your hair.
