Austin Laser Hair Removal
Westlake Dermatology was voted “Best Laser Hair Removal in Austin” by the readers of Austin Monthly Magazine!
Laser hair removal is a safe alternative to remove unwanted facial or body hair while eliminating razor burn and the “shadow” effect caused by shaving.
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.
What is Lightsheer Infinity?
Lightsheer Infinity is the latest advancement from Lumenis in laser hair removal. The highly effective technology offers increased comfort, is 75% faster, and can treat all skin types (including dark) and hair types (including blonde). This laser option is currently available at our Westlake location.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The price of laser hair removal is primarily determined by the size of the treatment area, with smaller areas like the bikini area being less expensive than larger areas like the back or legs. See average pricing in Austin
