Unwanted body hair can be a nuisance, but it doesn’t have to be with laser hair removal treatments at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. We offer this advanced hair removal solution to residents of Houston, Kerrville and San Antonio, TX.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a more permanent solution to unwanted body hair than shaving, waxing, or plucking. During treatment, non-invasive laser energy is used to precisely heat and destroy the follicles of unwanted hair. Once treated, these hairs will be unable to grow back, resulting in long-lasting results. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we use the Inmode DiolazeXL laser technology for laser hair removal treatment. This technology and equipment provides high speed and large spot treatment size to reduce treatment time. Unlike most hair removal laser systems, the Inmode DiolazeXL is able to effectively treat darker skin types. Patients can use laser hair removal to address unwanted hair in the following areas:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
- And more
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost of laser hair removal will depend on the area being treated, and ranges from $50 to $400 per area. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?
The machine used at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has a built-in cooling tip that makes the laser hair removal procedure more comfortable. Many patients describe the treatment as feeling like a rubber band snap on the skin. Dr. Layton’s technology uses a larger treatment head so that it takes less pulses and time to fully treat an area. Plus, there is no downtime after laser hair removal. However, patients should stay out of the sun for at least two weeks before and after treatments to prevent skin discoloration.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments depends on the area being treated and the coarseness and color of the hair being treated. It usually takes six to eight treatments for complete hair removal, but this number will vary by patient.
