I am Afraid Laser Hair Removal Will Damage my Skin. Is it Safe?
Laser hair removal is a popular treatment involving innovative laser technology. Devine Aesthetic Solutions uses the Soprano ICE™ system to remove unwanted or excess hair in areas like the arms, back, legs, and bikini area so patients can feel confident and look their best in the DFW area.
Laser hair removal is generally safe as long as it is provided by a trained professional. Dr. Jeanine Thomas has helped countless individuals achieve their desired results through cutting-edge methods. Today, we take a closer look at the safety of laser hair removal and provide tips for reducing possible side effects.
When it comes to any laser treatment, our team is dedicated to quality care and ensuring that each patient feels both comfortable and confident with their outcomes. We are proud to work with individuals near Garland, Plano, the Mid-Cities, and Southlake.
What happens during laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is performed in a relaxing treatment room at Devine Aesthetic Solutions. Dr. Thomas begins by cleansing the designated areas to remove excess dirt or oils. We then carefully glide the handheld laser piece over the skin. Some minor discomfort may occur, but the process is not considered painful. Patients are given a custom treatment plan to follow based on their individual needs and cosmetic goals.
How safe is laser hair removal?
Many individuals are concerned that laser hair removal is unsafe because other laser technologies are known to cause skin damage or discoloration. Devine Aesthetic Solutions is proud to use advanced technologies, like the Soprano ICE system, for safe results. This system is cleared for all skin tones and hair types.
For those who are worried about discomfort, Soprano ICE also incorporates a state-of-the-art cooling system to minimize any pain or discomfort. In fact, many of our patients in the Dallas/Fort Worth area report that treatment is virtually painless.
What are the side effects of laser treatment?
Like any cosmetic procedure, laser hair removal does come with mild but temporary side effects, such as redness and irritation. Patients can reduce these effects by following any post-treatment instructions as given by Dr. Thomas or a member of our team. It is also important to understand that everyone's skin reacts differently to laser hair removal, and some people may experience more intense reactions than others.
How do I take care of my skin after laser hair removal?
There are ways to keep your skin looking healthy and feeling great after laser hair removal. We recommend the following:
Use gentle and non-irritating products when cleansing the treatment area
Avoid using skin care products, harsh scrubs, chemicals, or exfoliants
Avoid waxing or plucking hair in the treatment area for as long as directed
Use a sunblock with SPF 30 or higher when going outside
Drink plenty of water and keep your skin hydrated and moisturized
Safely remove unwanted hair
Excess hair can be frustrating, especially in visible areas, like the arms and legs.
