Featured Image

It’s no secret that we spend a lot of time shaving to get silky, smooth skin. While shaving and waxing work, they can be time-consuming. At Modern Medical Spa, our medical director and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Genecov, offers laser hair removal to men and women throughout Dallas, TX. This semi-permanent solution saves you time and keeps your skin soft much longer. During a consultation, he can answer what is laser hair removal, how often you can have it, and how long a session takes.

Who is the best candidate for laser hair removal in Dallas, TX?

With the onset of advanced technology, our team offers laser hair removal for patients of all skin types.

The best candidate for laser hair removal at Modern Medical Spa is someone who:

  • Has unwanted facial or body hair

  • Is sick of other hair removal techniques

  • Is in overall good health

During a consultation, our team at Modern Medical Spa can develop the right custom treatment plan for your goals.

How does laser hair removal work?

Hair consists of the follicle and the shaft. The follicle is just below the skin, while the shaft is outside of the skin. At Modern Medical Spa, we use a special laser light to target the follicle. As the laser travels down the shaft and to your follicle, it transforms into heat, which damages the follicle to prevent hair from growing back.

We recommend laser hair removal in these areas:

  • Arms

  • Back

  • Bikini line

  • Chest

  • Legs

  • Underarms

How many sessions do I need?

On the day of your laser treatment, we will first remove any oil, dirt, and makeup from your skin. This gives us a clear path for the laser and hair follicles. Once the laser is used, your hair should not return. Most of our patients require 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to achieve the best results. Our Forever Bare BBL™ technology addresses only the hair follicle, protecting the surrounding skin.

About Forever Bare BBL

This technology uses lower pulses at high repetition to create a safe and fast laser hair removal technique. The handpiece our team uses has thermoelectrical-cooled sapphire plates, which keep you comfortable throughout your treatment. It can be used on all areas of the body safely too.

What to do before laser hair removal

We ask that our patients are freshly bathed with clean skins free of fragrance, creams, oils, or lotions. We recommend shaving the treatment areas no sooner than 24 hours before your appointment. Do not tweeze, epilate, wax, or use a chemical depilatory between your laser treatments. Avoid sun exposure, and do not use tanning beds for two weeks before your session. Avoid using acids, retinol, or benzoyl peroxide, all products that cause photosensitivity, for up to three days before your session.

What to do after laser hair removal

It is normal to experience redness and swelling in your treatment areas after laser hair removal in Dallas, TX. This can last for a few days. We recommend using aloe vera or hydrocortisone cream to alleviate any irritation. You may notice hair slowly shedding for the next few weeks; this is normal. Avoid excessive heat from saunas or hot tubs for at least 24 hours after your laser hair removal treatment. Wear SPF 30 sunscreen daily.
