Dallas Laser Hair Removal Beats Waxing & Shaving

Today, laser hair removal is the fastest-growing procedure in cosmetic dermatology. One of the most recent innovations and the ideal option for this procedure is diode laser hair removal, like the Harmony® Soprano. Women opt to remove unwanted hair from their chins or upper lips. They often wish to rid themselves of embarrassing bikini lines or underarm hair and to be freed from endless hours of shaving or waxing their legs. This non-invasive, effective approach yields long-term hair reduction anywhere on the face or body, and it's even designed to match your skin type and hair type, assuring exceptionally exact and gentle treatments.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Diode lasers eliminate unwanted hair by emitting a beam of light onto the skin. Passing harmlessly through the skin, the light targets the pigment (melanin) within the hair follicle and hair shaft. As the follicles absorb this laser energy, they are disabled and unable to produce new hair. The result: lasting hair reduction with no downtime. Immediately after treatments, the area may appear and feel mildly sunburned. This reaction usually subsides within a day or so.

Women of all skin colors and most hair colors have been successfully treated. For best results, laser hair removal treatments are customized according to skin color, hair texture, and body area. All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. As laser light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment, resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be treated. For this reason, treatment must be repeated until all hair follicles have passed through the growing phase. Clinical studies indicate that typically four or more treatments are needed at intervals of between one to three months. While lasers are able to cover relatively large areas at high speed, the exact treatment time is determined by the size of the area being treated. The upper lip and underarm take only a few minutes, while the leg may require up to an hour.
