Introduction to Laser Hair Removal

Despite our shared loathing of the maintenance that goes into keeping a stubble-free body, the majority of us begrudgingly continue this tiresome maintenance because we still prefer it to the alternative. However, recent advancements in laser technology have made arduous shaving a thing of the past! At Personique On the Spt in Austin, laser hair removal is one of our most common treatments.

Our team strives to deliver some of the best laser hair removal results in Austin, while always practicing patient safety. Below, we’ve included more information about the treatment, but to schedule a consultation, please contact us today!

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal treatments work by targeting the melanin in your skin. Melanin is what gives color to our hair and skin. The more melanin that is present, the darker the color of your hair. If you recall from science class, dark colors absorb light whereas lighter colors reflect it. This is the basic principle that laser hair removal works on. In patients with fair skin, melanin is typically concentrated in the hair, giving it a darker color than the surrounding skin.

What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

The primary benefit of this procedure is obvious in the name of the treatment itself – you’re able to remove unwanted, often coarse or dark, body hair. Of course, there are plenty of other benefits that you will enjoy, including:

Virtually any area of the body can be treated using laser hair removal. Some of the most common areas of the body for laser hair removal include:

This procedure isn’t just for the ladies either. We frequently see male patients who just want less hair growth in areas like the back, chest, or face. Laser hair removal is a very effective means of reducing thick, coarse hair growth.

Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Hair Removal?

At Personique On The Spot, we have machines that treat all hair colors, allowing our technicians to customize each laser hair removal treatment based on the individual’s unique hair and skin type. Our laser hair removal equipment can target blonde, red (skin types 1-3), and skin types 4-6. During your Austin laser hair removal consultation, your technician will determine which techniques and technology will deliver the best results for maximum hair reduction.

The best candidates for laser hair removal are those who have light skin and dark hair. The laser is absorbed by your hair’s pigment, so this treatment works best for those who have a stark contrast between their skin color and hair color.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting laser hair removal in Austin is to book your consultation or schedule an appointment. During this treatment, we’ll be able to provide you with more information about the treatment, answer questions, and provide our expert recommendations.

What to Expect on the Day of Laser Hair Removal

During laser hair removal treatment, your technician will specifically tune the laser light to be absorbed by the hair follicle pigment. As a result, the focused laser energy is absorbed by the unwanted hair while simultaneously being repelled by the lighter-colored skin. Upon being absorbed, this light energy is converted into heat that damages the hair follicle, stunting any future hair growth in that area.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery

During the first day or so after your treatment, your skin will look and feel like it’s sunburned – cool compresses and moisturizers can help you with any discomfort. You should avoid wearing makeup for the first 24 hours, but you can return to your normal use the next day unless your skin is blistering.

Blisters are rare but are more likely in people with darker complexions. Other potential side effects are swelling, redness, and scarring. Permanent scarring or changes in skin color are rare.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost in Austin, TX?

The cost of laser hair removal in Austin will vary depending on several factors. The treatment area and the number of sessions will impact the price. During your consultation, we’ll be able to provide you with an exact breakdown of the total cost.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Is Laser Hair Removal painful?

Laser Hair Removal does cause discomfort, with many patients describing it to be similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The procedure is no more uncomfortable than other forms of hair removal, such as waxing.

How many appointments will I need?

This is a very common question. Since only 20% of the hair grows at any one time, and only the actively growing hair is destroyed by the laser, multiple sessions are needed for complete hair reduction. Five to six treatments are common when treating a targeted region of the body. The number of sessions you need will depend largely on the size of the area being treated, the density of the hair in this area, and the speed of hair growth.

How long until I see results?

While laser hair removal does result in the near-permanent removal of hair, there are a few things to know about it. One of those is that while this treatment method can eliminate all unwanted hairs, some hair will regrow within a few years. Laser hair removal is capable of permanently reducing the number of hairs that grow but not permanently removing all hair.

Can I combine Laser Hair Removal with other procedures?

If you are looking to have an additional treatment performed in combination with your Laser Hair Removal, please discuss this with the technician during your consultation. Depending on what areas you’re looking to improve, you may choose to have Dermal Filler injections such as BOTOX or enhance your body with Sculptra.

What are the risks associated with Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is overall a very safe treatment, however, there are some risks associated with the procedure, such as:

While most side effects are minimal and will disappear within a day or 2, if you experience any long-lasting or concerning reactions, please contact our practice immediately.
