Unsightly or excessive body hair can be incredibly embarrassing. Body hair can also detract from the definition of your figure, limit clothing options, and be a general hassle. To deal with these issues, many people look to painful treatments such as waxing or the frustratingly ineffective shaving method.
For more permanent results, some people even look to electrolysis which, while effective, is cost prohibitive and time consuming, making it a terrible option for most people.
Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann understands how frustrating it can be to try and deal with unwanted body hair. He is pleased to offer our patients the safe and effective option of laser hair removal, a treatment that can optimize results in a fraction of the time required for electrolysis, yet remains noninvasive and requires no downtime.
To learn if laser hair removal is right for you, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center or call (713) 790-1771 today to schedule a consultation at our comfortable Houston, Texas office. We help patients in Houston and across the surrounding areas.
About Laser Hair Removal
Unlike electrolysis that cauterizes each individual hair follicle, laser hair removal focuses on multiple follicles at the same time, allowing it to treat large areas such as the back, legs, chest, and abdomen in as little as an hour. Smaller areas such as the bikini line, upper lip, or back of the neck are often completed in less than ten minutes.
However, to completely reduce both the production and appearance of hair, more than one treatment will most likely be necessary.
The removal of hair with laser energy is most effective when hair is in its earliest growth cycle. Therefore, to ensure optimal results, the area being treated will be shaved prior to your treatment. Dr. Eisemann will apply a topical anesthetic prior to administering laser hair removal treatment.
While most patients find the process painless, some temporary discomfort is not entirely unusual. In most cases this discomfort is so inconsequential that patients are able to resume normal activities as soon as they leave our office.
Laser hair removal is a remarkable way to permanently reduce unwanted hair, but it may not be right for everyone. During your initial consultation Dr. Eisemann can assess your needs, discuss your options, and help you determine if it is the best treatment for you.
