by the readers of Austin Monthly Magazine!
Laser hair removal in Austin is a safe alternative to remove unwanted facial or body hair while eliminating razor burn and the “shadow” effect caused by unwanted hair.
How does laser hair removal work?
Infrared light targets the pigment in the hair follicles and converts it into heat, which causes follicular destruction. Hair grows in three cycles. Follicular destruction takes place during the anagen phase, where it causes the most impact. We use the LightSheer® laser hair removal system, considered the “gold standard” of the trade. The computer-guided system gently disables hundreds of hair follicles in less than one second.
From what areas of the body can hair be removed?
Laser hair removal can be performed on all parts of the body including the cheeks, lip, legs, arms, underarms, and back, as well as sensitive areas like the bikini line, ears, nose, chest, and nipples.
How many laser hair removal treatments are necessary?
Laser hair removal systems can only treat active hair follicles. For optimal results, we recommend 6 treatments varying between six and ten weeks apart.
