Using cold air minimizes the chance of discomfort, and the treatment becomes comfortable. Permanent results are visible only after a few treatments

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The laser emits an invisible light which penetrates the skin without damaging it. At the hair follicle, the laser light absorbed by the pigments is converted into heat. This heat will damage the follicle.

The laser emits light, which easily penetrates the skin. The procedure does not damage the skin and removes the hair. The laser light is absorbed by the pigments and converted into heat, which damages the follicle. The process is gentle, with minimum side effects, unlike electrolysis.

Whether you are looking for Colleyville Brazilian laser hair removal, underarm hair removal, or face hair removal the treatment quickly works, and you do not have to wax or shave again, but you need to undergo a series of sessions. It eradicates the hair follicle in four to six weeks, which will continue to have seven to nine sessions.

What To Expect

CONSULTATION

Most of the time, consultation and treatment can happen on the same day. Your technician carefully examines your hair follicle and skin color to decide that you are an appropriate candidate to go with the process. You will be explained the treatment procedure and aftercare preventions to ensure adequate output.  We can treat you the very same day if you have dedicatedly followed the pretreatment directions, and all other things are good.

TREATMENT

LASER HAIR REMOVAL PRE TREATMENT:

• On the treatment, day-patient must be shaven cleanly
• Within the four weeks of appointment, the patient cannot have waxed, bleached, plucked, or threaded the hair in areas that need to be treated
• The patient should not use depilatory (hair removal products in the form of a gel, cream, or foam ) for two weeks before the appointment
• Intense sun exposure needs to be avoided, including incidental sun, tanning beds, self-tanners, and spray tans two weeks before and after this treatment
• A patient cannot have a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or any other laser treatment within two weeks of the appointment
• Patients must not be consuming any photosensitive medication or antibiotics
• The patient cannot have used Retinoids or topical Benzoyl Peroxide medications three days before treatment
• Within six months of treatment, the patient cannot have consumed Accutane
• Not allowed for nursing or pregnant women

LASER HAIR REMOVAL POST TREATMENT:

BE GENTLE
Do not use hot water for bathing either in pools, ocean, or tubs for a minimum of three days. Prefer cool, lukewarm short bath and do not scrub the treated area. After this, dry pat the area and do not rub with a towel.

MOISTURIZE
Moisture the treated area at least thrice a day for three to four days after hair treatment as this will help to reduce irritation and chances of folliculitis.

NO IRRITANTS
Do not use irritants like toners, astringents, Retin A or other retinoids, harsh soaps, scrubs, medicated washes, peels, and other exfoliates for a minimum of one week after the treatment. Remember not to rub or scrub the area.

NO SUN
Avoid tanning beds and sun exposure. Always use sunblock with SPF 45 or high when you are outside.

NO PLUCKING
Do not pick or pluck hairs that are in the process of falling out after hair reduction treatments. Let this hair falls out, and it will take five to fifteen days.

OTHER NOTES:

FOR ITCHING and/or SWELLING:

You may take liquid up to three days—Allegra, Benadryl, or Claritin (depending on the availability over the counter) as required. Before the next appointment, you can take Liquid Benadryl, Claritin, or Allegra. Apply the Elta MD Post Laser Cream daily for three days twice a day. You may also apply Aquaphor or Vaseline.

FACIAL and NECK HAIR:

The results can be challenging in the case of neck and facial hair. It is necessary to see a primary care physician if you have hair that is not responding to this treatment. Your hormone levels should be checked for the root cause.  However, some hair will not go away, but with occasional treatment, it can be reduced and maintained.

FOR DISCOMFORT:

Apply ice packs to the treated area if you experience swelling, redness, or minor. You should apply it every three to five minutes (not more than five minutes each time) for one to two hours. You can also use the Vaseline, Aquaphor, or Post Laser Cream to the affected area thrice daily until the problem resolves.

TIMING:

Hair growth takes place in three stages, namely (anagen, catagen, and telogen), and hair reduction is susceptible to the anagen phase. Don’t worry; we will tell you when you need to come for the next treatment as it is based on the area that needs to be treated.

FOR MICROCRUSTING:

Do not scrub the area or rub it and apply Aquaphor or Vaseline. For more information, you can contact us.

FAQs

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

The Lasers safely remove unwanted facial and body hair by selectively targeting melanin (pigment) inside the hair follicle, generating energy in the form of heat at the root of the hair, and destroying the hair without damaging the skin.

DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?

Laser hair removal is the least painful hair removal procedure on the market, with levels of discomfort far below the pain felt with electrolysis, waxing, or even a bad razor burn. During the laser hair removal session, most clients say the feel a slight stinging sensation. After the session, your skin may be slightly red and irritated. Although side effects are rare, some patients can experience blisters, swelling, redness and scarring. Slight scarring or alterations in skin color are also possible from laser hair removal, but infrequent. Clients with darker skin tend to experience a higher rate of complications.

WHAT COVERAGE DO I GET WITH EACH AREA?

HOW MANY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

Due to the staggered nature of the hair growth cycle, with some hairs actively growing while others are dormant, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments to catch each hair as it enters the “active” growth phase. The number of laser hair removal treatments necessary for complete hair removal varies from person to person. Most patients require 6-12 hair removal treatments, spread out between 4-6 week intervals. It is important to attend every appointment in your treatment plan to ensure the best results

HOW LONG THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE TAKE?

GentleMAX Pro produce an 18mm spot size (about the size of a quarter). This larger spot size coupled with more hertz (power), means a faster and more effective treatment. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs at the same time. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as fullback or full legs can take from to 45 minutes to an hour on average.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

Laser treatments are extremely safe. Our lasers are FDA approved and use the most advanced technology to deliver the safest treatment. All of our technicians are experts in Laser Hair Removal they are fully certified, with up to date training and have a great deal of experience with providing treatments to fit your needs.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

For the vast majority of people, the answer is YES! We can treat women and men of all ethnicities and skin types. Lasers are attracted to the pigment of the hair, so if you have white, red, light blonde or fine vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) unfortunately, treatments would be ineffective.
As a general rule; the best results are achieved by those with thick dark hair and light skin but our Gentle MaxPro is optimized for each individual’s unique skin type and thereby offers safe and permanent results for virtually all skin tones and hair thicknesses

DO I HAVE TO LET MY HAIR GROW OUT BEFORE A LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE?

No. In fact, the less hair there is on the surface the better. We want as much of the laser’s energy as possible to go down to the follicle where it is needed instead of just concentrating on what hair is visible on the surface. You should attend your appointment with the intended treatment area clean shaven. Making sure the intended treatment area clean shaven will make the treatment less painful and far more effective.

It is very important that you do not tweeze, wax, use depilatory creams such as Nair or Veet, or use bleaching creams at least 4 weeks prior to your first appointment.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE WHEN PREGNANT OR NURSING?

While there is no known risk we do not offer laser hair removal when pregnant or nursing as an extra precaution.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE FOR DARKER SKIN TONES?

Yes! We have two distinct layers: one for lighter skin, and one for darker skin.

No matter how dark the skin, our GentleMax Pro YAG laser is considered the gold standard for treating unwanted hair on darker skin types.

Its longer wavelength safely bypasses the skin and targets the melanin in the hair shaft, destroying the unwanted hair follicle or roo without damaging the pigmentation of the skin.

CAN YOU STILL HELP ME IF I HAVE ELECTROLYSIS OR OTHER LASER TREATMENTS IN THE PAST?

Yes, if you still have unwanted hair in the area that was treated then we are happy to offer a laser hair removal treatment plan.

We have helped many clients who have not had the ability to withstand painful electrolysis, as well as those who have not had positive results with other types of laser systems.

WILL FRECKLES MOLES OR TATTOOS BE DAMAGED IF THEY ARE IN THE TREATMENT AREA?

Our technicians have the ability to adjust the laser intensity for areas that have moles and/or freckles.
It is not possible to treat areas with existing tattoos as it will affect the ink, if you are considering Laser Hair removal and a tattoo then please visit us before getting a tattoo!

Since Microblading & permanent eyebrows and/or lip liner are considered tattoos, please inform us if you have any of this so we can adjust the lasers near those areas.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL OR UNCOMFORTABLE?

You may experience a small but manageable sensation that we describe as a “pinch” or a “zap” when we pulse the laser. The DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device) that our lasers are equipped with eliminates the need for any topical numbing preparations. Before every laser pulse, cryogen (cooling agent) is automatically sprayed onto the skin within the laser field that protects and partially numbs that area. This makes the treatment safer and more comfortable. Stress, fatigue, caffeine, your menstrual cycle, and pain tolerance may also influence the level of comfort — or discomfort — that you feel. We have a topical cream that is prescribed by our physician for those who are sensitive to pain.

Most of our former waxing, stringing and electrolysis clients report that the discomfort is far less than those methods of hair removal.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

With Laser Hair Removal risks are minimal. There is no recovery or downtime so patients can return to their normal activities immediately. After the treatment, you may experience a slight reddening of the skin similar to a sunburn that will resolve within a few hours to days. In certain instances (especially in patients with darker complexions) temporary pigment changes may occur but will disappear within a month.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW FOLLOWING MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT

Immediately following your treatment, and for two weeks after your session, you should avoid unprotected sun exposure. If you have to go out into the sun, then you will need to apply sunscreen with Zinc, 20 SPF, or higher. Clients continuing laser hair removal treatments need to refrain from waxing and/or tweezing as a hair removal option.
While receiving laser treatments, please shave to remove remaining hair in between laser sessions. Over the course of your treatments, the hair will start to grow back less frequently, thinner and sparse. At least two weeks after each session the hair may start to shed on its own, releasing the follicle.

AM I ALLOWED TO TAN?

While getting treated for laser hair removal we ask you to avoid all types of tanning.
This includes tanning outside, tanning beds, spray tans, and tanning injections. If you have tanned recently we want you to wait at least two weeks before your next treatment. The reason for this is because the laser is attracted to pigment. And rather than the laser picking up the pigment of the hair, there is a risk that it will pick up the extra pigment on the skin, resulting in a burn.

WHAT IF I HAVE EXCESSIVE HAIR GROWTH?

While the vast majority of patients achieve outstanding results from laser hair removal, people with excessive hair growth particularly in unusual areas may want to explore any possible underlying medical conditions prior to receiving laser hair removal. Men may experience excessive growth due to undiagnosed insulin resistance whereas women with male-pattern facial hair may want to see an endocrinologist to rule out any possibility of PCOS, Hirsutism, or elevated testosterone levels. Laser hair removal can only destroy hair that’s currently growing. For example, Our Laser Technician may treat an area and effectively destroy all of the hair that was growing at the time of treatment, yet a patient may grow new hair (though this is usually just a few strands) due to hormonal changes that trigger new growth from previously dormant follicles such as pregnancy and menopause. Laser hair removal does not stop your body from developing new hair from dormant follicles due to medical conditions after treatments are completed.

The following are potential causes of excessive hair growth:

  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Glandular and/or hormonal imbalances
  • PCOS
  • Insulin resistance
  • Thyroid problems
  • Reactions to certain medications
  • Steroid use

The majority of people, even with a medical condition, are treatable and can achieve great results permanently removing their unwanted body hair. Diagnosing a medical condition prior to treatment will help us at New Look Houston to treat you more effectively and better explain to you what to expect before, during, and after treatment.

CAN I GET TREATED IF I HAVE AN STD/HERPES?

Yes, you can get treated. We ask you to inform us of your new patient paperwork when you come in for your consultation. If you have the herpes simplex virus, antiviral therapy can be started 1-2 days before treatment and continued for 1-week post-treatment to help prevent an outbreak. If you do have an outbreak we ask you to reschedule your appointment.

ARE LASER HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS PERMANENT?

Results vary depending on skin and hair type. Many patients can achieve hair reduction of up to 85-90% and remaining hair returns lighter and softer. Results vary depending on the patient. However, there have been some studies have shown a hair can go dormant for a few years and then start to grow again the results vary person to person.

HOW MUCH DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR FACE COST?

The price of laser hair removal procedures varies on the part of body and the amount treatments you will need.  For more information on pricing make sure to look at our laser hair removal pricing section.

HOW MUCH DOES FULL BODY LASER HAIR REMOVAL COST?

The price of laser hair removal procedures varies on the part of body and the amount treatments you will need.  For more information on pricing make sure to look at our laser hair removal pricing section.

DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK ON DARK HAIR?

Laser hair removal can work on anyone. However, certain procedures work better on types of hair and skin tones. The technology is based on melanin, the dark color pigments, in hair, so dark hairs contrasting with light skin will have the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time.
