Start Laser Hair Removal Now and be Free of Waxing by Summer

Tired of shaving and waxing? At Vital Clinic and Spa, located in Cypress, Texas, Hermanpreet Buttar, MD, and the team offer laser hair removal to give you a break from your shaving routine — just in time for summer!

Laser hair removal is an alternative to shaving, painful waxing, and messy chemical solutions. The advanced technology uses lasers to remove unwanted hair for both men and women. By starting your laser hair removal treatments in early spring, you’ll be swimsuit-ready by summer.

Remove unwanted hair and prevent regrowth

If you’re thinking about laser hair removal treatments, you probably have hair on areas of your body that you wish you didn’t! Common areas treated with laser hair removal include underarms, back, chest, and the bikini line. Dr. Buttar and our team also treat the upper lip, eyebrows, and chin.

In addition to shaving and waxing to remove unwanted hair, you may have tried temporary methods of hair removal, like tweezing or epilators. Regardless of the hair removal methods you’ve tried up until now, you’re probably ready for something different and longer-lasting.

Laser hair removal is among the top five most common non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States. The procedure reduces the unwanted hair in the treatment areas, but it doesn’t completely stop all hair regrowth. When hair grows back, it is lighter, and there is less of it. Most people need four to six sessions for complete results.

Why are winter and spring the best times for laser hair removal?

Your skin is more sensitive to the sun after laser hair removal treatments. In the colder months, you’re less likely to head outdoors in a bathing suit to soak up the sun, so you’re at less risk for side effects caused by sunlight.

The spring is also a great time for hair removal treatments because you will need between four and six treatments about four weeks apart to experience full results. That puts you right in bikini season! You’ll notice up to 25% reduction in hair after your first session with fewer hairs regrowing after each additional session.

Laser hair removal destroys hair follicles

The handheld laser targets and destroys hair follicles in the second layer of your skin. The heat from the laser also prevents the regrowth of hair. Treatment sessions are fast, with some people receiving a laser hair removal session on their lunch break, but it depends on the area you’re treating and your hair type.

Hair has growth cycles. The laser works on hair follicles in their growth phase. When you receive multiple treatments spread over time, the lasers target a larger number of hair follicles during the active growth phases to give you optimal results. Dr. Buttar and the team customize a hair removal plan based on your hair type.
