Shaving, waxing, and generally keeping up with unwanted hair can be a challenge. There are many quick fixes out there that can provide temporary relief. However, if you’re looking for a longterm solution, laser hair removal is going to be a great option. Want that unwanted hair gone for good? At Grace Medical Aesthetics in Baytown, TX, we have perfected this treatment to give you results that last.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The treatment process is relatively simple, yet extremely effective. A concentrated beam of light is produced through the use of medical-grade equipment. This light works to remove unwanted hair. The laser emits light that is absorbed by pigments in hair that is then converted to heat. The heat damages hair follicles, delaying hair growth, and ultimately prevents it from growing back at all, leaving you free of the all hassle that comes with unwanted hair!
Because the concentrated laser targets only the hair follicle, you don’t have to worry about it harming your skin, unlike other chemical treatments. While some additional treatments may be required for upkeep, you will be left with the smooth skin you have always desired.
Why It’s the Best Treatment Option
Waxing, shaving, and other options have to be repeated often; too often for many. Also, waxing can be painful and can sometimes leave skin looking irritated. Shaving too comes with its own set of issues and the hair comes back quickly. With laser hair removal, you’re going to get longer-lasting results, and eventually, you’ll see that unwanted hair not returning at all.
With shaving, you are only removing the hair that can be seen. There is more beneath the surface that needs to be attended in order for the regrowth process to take longer. On average with shaving, you begin to see more hair returning after only a few days. After multiple treatments, you can kiss all that unwanted hair goodbye for good!
What to Expect During Treatment
After your initial consultation with our experts, where they will guide you through the process and address all your questions and concerns, you show up to our office. In one of our relaxing rooms, an expert will apply the concentrated laser light to the areas you want to remove unwanted hair. The amount of time the process will take depends on which area is being treated.
During treatment, you will feel little to no discomfort! Our experts are there to ensure that your treatment goes smoothly and addresses all of your needs. The concentrated light is applied to those areas, targeting the actual hair and not the skin itself. Once completed, you are free to go about your day.
Before and After Treatment
Before your treatment, it’s recommended that you do not wax or remove hair as that makes it easier for our experts to target the hair you wish to be removed. This means no prepping!

In addition to saying goodbye to unwanted hair forever, with laser hair removal, there are even more benefits! Most of the benefits you are going to experience end discomfort from other hair removal options, which let’s face it, there are a lot of! Other options of removing hair can be unpleasant in more ways than one.

Commonly Asked Questions
Will It Hurt?
This question is the most common question asked regarding laser hair removal for good reason. Nobody wants to be in pain. Luckily, this process is completely painless! Since it is the hair follicle that is targeted, you aren’t going to experience any unpleasant sensation on your skin.

How Many Visits Will It Take Before Unwanted Hair Is Gone for Good?
This is going to vary on a case to case basis. Some have relatively thick hair while others have fine hair. It will also depend on which areas you want that hair gone for good.

How Often Will I Need Touchups?
Again, this is going to vary on a case to case basis. While all the hair you want to be removed will be removed initially, some of it may be stubborn and may require more than one visit to rid you of it completely.

Why Is This the Best Option?

How Do I Care for My Skin Before Treatment?
The only thing you have to do before your treatment is to avoid tweezing or waxing. Our experts want to see where the unwanted hair is so they can effectively remove it. Other than that, you do not have to purchase any expensive creams or apply treatment to your skin. Our experts take care of that.
It is recommended that you avoid any method that removes the hair that you want to be removed. This is going to help you get the best results. So technically, there is less prep before this treatment than you would do normally!

It also is not advised to get a spray tan immediately after treatment. Anything other concerns that could specifically apply to you will be discussed with you by our friendly experts.
