Take a Break from Shaving, Waxing, & Tweezing in Austin, TX
Hair in unwanted places tends to quickly regrow after being shaved, and even after plucking, tweezing, or waxing. For a longer-term solution, the medspa at Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers laser hair reduction in Austin, TX. Traditional hair removal works by plucking hairs out by the roots. Chemical hair removal melts the hair at the level of the skin but can cause skin irritation. Laser hair reduction works by sending light energy into the skin which is absorbed by the melanin pigments in the hair shaft and root, causing the follicle to atrophy. The advanced delivery device, Forever Bare™ BBL from Sciton, is equipped with an advanced cooling system to keep the surface of the skin comfortable throughout the treatment.
Why Should You Consider Laser Hair Reduction?
Waxing is painful and is required at frequent intervals to keep skin smooth. It's awkward to forget to shave and look down in public and see brown stubble in the underarms or on visible areas of the legs. If you are tired of regular self maintenance to keep skin free of unsightly hair, laser hair reduction is worth considering. The treatment is quick, handled in the office, and offers very long-lasting results. Once treated with laser light, follicles have been damaged and are no longer able to properly produce hair. If new hairs do appear, they are typically much lighter and finer in appearance. Note that multiple laser hair reduction sessions may be required for you to get your ideal results, but Forever Bare™ BBL is specifically designed to be thorough and precise, resulting in fewer "missed" areas than other treatments.
Your Laser Hair Reduction Experience
All laser hair reduction sessions happen only after an initial consultation to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the treatment. While Forever Bare™ BBL is a highly sophisticated device, it is suited for most skin types, but not all of them.
The treatment itself is designed to be quick and comfortable, as well as flexible enough to be applied to large and small areas around the body. Multiple bursts of laser energy will be directed into the target area while a thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plate maintains a cool temperature on the surface. As the light from the Forever Bare BBL device enters the follicles, pigmented cells convert it to heat, which eventually rises to the point that the follicles are irreparably damaged, halting future hair growth.
Our medspa team is trained to maximize both results and patient comfort throughout this process. After a treatment session, your skin will be sensitive and should be protected against exposure to sunlight. Hairs will gradually fall out in the days and weeks after a treatment. Over several treatments, hair does not regrow and the skin is smooth.
