Laser Hair Removal in Fort Worth

If you are tired of dealing with unwanted hair and are looking for an alternative to tweezing, shaving, or waxing, laser hair removal may be exactly what you need to show off your skin. Our licensed Aesthetician and Certified Injector, Jennifer Geyer, can help you get the look you want with laser hair removal in Fort Worth. Jennifer has over 18 years of experience delivering a variety of cosmetic laser treatments, including laser hair removal, IPL, and laser skin resurfacing among other minimally invasive treatments.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal uses a concentrated, focused beam of light to remove hair from specific areas and offers a permanent reduction (50 to 95 percent) of hair growth in such areas as the face, legs, bikini area, chin, back, arms, and underarms. More permanent hair loss results can be achieved through multiple sessions. Laser treatment for hair removal offers you a number of benefits, including:

  • Treatments are quick. For example, treatment for underarms only takes about 20 minutes.
  • Helps prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Less painful than other traditional hair removal treatment options.
  • Leaves no scars and has no painful side effects.
  • Treatment can cover small areas, like eyebrows or above the lips, as well as larger areas.
  • Results are longer lasting than other treatments and require little downtime.

Laser hair removal is not recommended for use around the eyes, as the light may cause damage to your retina.

Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Preparing for Laser Hair Removal by following these instructions can improve the effectiveness of the procedure and reduces the risk of side effects. Here are some common recommendations:

  1. Stay out of the sun or tanning bed for 2 weeks before and after your procedure at our Fort Worth office. Laser hair removal shouldn’t be performed on tanned skin.
  2. Avoid irritating the skin.
  3. Stay away from waxing and plucking. Shaving is recommended before your procedure.
  4. Try not to take photo-sensitive drugs that may increase risk of burning.
  5. If you have an active infection, such as a cold sore or bacterial skin infection, the procedure should not be performed.

Before starting the treatment, Jennifer will adjust the laser to the appropriate settings, depending on the target areas. Before the laser is applied, eye protection will be provided to protect your vision, and when you are ready, pulses of light will be administered directly to the desired areas. After the treatment is complete, a cold pack or a topical anti-inflammatory solution may be applied to reduce pain or swelling. If you experience redness, it can be relieved with moisturizers or cool compresses.

Are there Risks Associated with Laser Hair Removal?

While risks and side effects of laser hair removal depend largely on the procedure and individual patient, common side effects include:

  • Skin irritation or redness
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Pigment changes
  • Blistering, or a sunburned appearance of the skin
  • Loss of pigment in treated hair
  • Hair growth around treated areas

How Long Does it Take to See Results?

Depending on the areas treated, final results may become noticeable several days or weeks after treatment, because it takes time for body hairs to fall out. Although laser hair removal can delay hair growth for a long time, the results are not permanent, and you may need future maintenance treatments. This is because laser hair removal works best when the follicles are growing, so multiple sessions often yield the best and most long-lasting results.
