Save Yourself Time and Hassle With Laser Hair Removal in Austin

When you have hair in an unwanted area, having to regularly shave, wax, or pluck it can be time-consuming and a major hassle. Plus, that hair tends to come back quickly, which is always extremely frustrating. If you’re interested in an easy, long-lasting method to get rid of your undesirable hair, you could be an excellent fit for laser hair removal at Austin Cosmetic Medspa.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-surgical treatment performed to eliminate unwanted hair in various areas of the body. Unlike plucking, waxing, or shaving, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results, saving you a ton of time and keeping your skin looking and feeling smooth. Laser hair reduction can be performed just about anywhere on the body, but it’s most commonly used to target the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

During laser hair removal, a beam of laser light is delivered directly to the hair being targeted for removal. This light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles to inhibit future hair growth in the area. This also causes the hair that’s currently present to gradually be shed.

At Austin Cosmetic Medspa, we use the cutting-edge Forever Bare™ BBL from Sciton for our laser hair removal treatments.

What to Expect During the Laser Hair Removal Process

All laser hair removal sessions happen only after an initial consultation to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the treatment. One of our laser hair removal experts will discuss the treatment with you, answer any questions you have, and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. 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 targeted treatment area while a thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plate maintains a cool temperature on the surface. The Forever Bare™ BBL device is equipped with an advanced cooling system to keep your skin comfortable throughout the treatment, so no anesthetic will be needed. When the treatment is complete, you’ll be able to return home right away.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Aftercare

After your laser hair removal treatment, you’ll likely experience some swelling and redness in the area for up to 72 hours. Your provider may recommend topical creams to help alleviate these symptoms and heal your skin. Usually, patients can resume their normal routines within a day of their treatment, though it’s best to avoid strenuous exercise for at least two days.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Adults looking for a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair could be good candidates for laser hair removal. Typically, the best candidates for the treatment have lighter skin and dark, coarse hair, but it can still be an effective option for all skin types and some lighter hair. To be an ideal candidate for laser hair removal, you should be in good physical health, have realistic expectations, and not be currently pregnant or nursing.

What kind of results can I expect from laser hair removal?

After laser hair removal, your hair will not fall out immediately, but it will gradually disappear over several days or weeks. After that, you should see little or no hair growth in that area for several months or even years, and any hair that does grow will be significantly lighter and finer.

How long does a treatment session take?

Depending on which area of your body is being treated, you can expect your laser hair removal treatment to take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

Because of the way hair growth cycles work, it typically takes multiple laser hair removal treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. Every patient is unique, but most people require between two and six treatments to be fully satisfied.
