Call The Spa on Par 3 in Horseshoe Bay, Texas or make an appointment online to find out more about laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal uses light energy to damage hair follicles. When the hair follicle is damaged, it can no longer grow new hair. If it’s only partially damaged and does grow hair, the hair will be thinner, finer and not grow as quickly.
Laser hair removal can be used to treat unwanted hair almost anywhere on your body. It’s most commonly used to treat:
Laser hair removal works best on people with fair skin and dark hair. People with light or gray hair or dark skin may still benefit. If you have a tan, you should wait until the tan fades.
People with skin disorders such as psoriasis, cystic acne, and dermatitis and those using Retin-A or Accutane are not good candidates. A consultation with one of the skin care experts at The Spa on Par 3 can help you determine if laser hair removal is a good option for you.
Before the procedure, you should stay out of the sun and avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis, but you can keep shaving. They will provide you with a set of pre-and post-procedure instructions.
The first step may be to trim the treated area hair, depending on how long it is. A numbing cream may be applied. The skincare experts at The Spa on Par 3 use the Cutera Excel HR™ laser hair removal system, which comes with a built-in cooling system to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
A technician passes a handheld device over the area that you want to treat. The light beam zaps your hair and hair follicles, killing them with intense heat. You may feel minor discomfort or a cooling sensation coming from the Cutera device. The treatment can last from several minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Since everyone’s hair grows differently, the number of sessions you’ll need can vary. Most people need about four to six sessions spaced six weeks apart.
