More and more women and men are discovering the many benefits of laser hair removal in Austin, Texas, at The Piazza Center.
Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure
For women and men who are tired of ineffective, short-term solutions for hair reduction – shaving, bleaching, waxing, tweezing, or messy depilatory creams – laser hair removal is an excellent choice. The procedure is relatively quick, comfortable, and produces excellent results. Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, you will meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Piazza and our medical aesthetician to determine the best treatment protocol to meet your hair removal needs.
Our aesthetician utilizes a laser handpiece to deliver light energy through the skin to the hair follicles. This energy is absorbed by the dark pigment in the hair follicles, destroying the follicles while leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. Discomfort is minimal, with most patients comparing it to the light snap of a rubber band against their skin. Newer laser technology allows for the treatment of even large areas in a relatively short appointment time.
After a laser hair removal treatment, the skin may be slightly red, like a mild sunburn. No elaborate aftercare is required, but it is recommended that you stay out of the sun while you are undergoing laser hair removal.
