Laser treatment for hair removal, also known as laser hair removal, is an effective alternative to shaving, waxing, and other hair removal methods. For patients who want to get rid of excess body or facial hair, laser hair removal is safe and provides long-lasting results. Is laser hair removal permanent? Here at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we are one of the few medspas south of San Antonio to use the effective Palomar StarLux 500 IPL machine for all of our hair removal treatments. With multiple treatments, this powerful machine allows laser hair removal to permanently reduce the number of hair follicles and hair growth in a patient.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Before laser hair removal begins, patients are to shave the area to be treated the night before they come in. The area should not be plucked or waxed as this will pull out the hair follicles. During the procedure, Intense pulsed light (IPL) is applied through our machine to the target area. IPL destroys the hair follicles below the surface of the skin. The light is absorbed and the hair follicle becomes heated, damaged, and eventually through consistent treatment, completely destroyed without destroying any tissue around the hair follicle. Is laser hair removal permanent then with consistent treatment? That depends.
