You’ve applied the finishing touches to your makeup. Your hair looks perfect. But as you stare at the mirror, you notice it: an unwanted hair, long and prominent, hanging from your upper lip.
Hair maintenance is hard enough without worrying about unwanted hair growth. Nobody wants to sit in front of the mirror, painstakingly tweezing hair from their brow or upper lip. But that’s not the worst of it. You might be seeing hair in other places that you hadn’t even considered, like your chest, thighs, or back.
For those tired of tweezing, waxing, and shaving with no lasting results, we can offer a possible solution for excessive hair growth.
At Southlake Plastic Surgery, we know how annoying unwanted hair growth can be, which is why we offer laser hair removal in Dallas. We’ll outline what causes unwanted hair growth and why laser hair removal might be the solution that you’ve been looking for.
Southlake Plastic Surgery
We couldn’t be more excited to meet you. At Southlake Plastic Surgery, the best part of our job is getting to know our patients. We got our start when our founder, Dr. Mark E. Mason, fell in love with the art of plastic surgery. He saw how a simple aesthetic surgery like Botox can transform a patient inside and out.
Sometimes we have an image of ourselves that doesn’t quite match reality, and when we see ourselves in a picture or mirror, that illusion is shattered. But thanks to our team, you can look how you always thought you should. You won’t have to be self-conscious when your friends want to take a group photo. You can show yourself off proudly.
A Group of Experts
Once Dr. Mark E. Mason started Southlake Plastic Surgery, he knew that assembling his team should be his first priority. He wanted to find a group that held the same beliefs and values that he did.
In any industry, you’ll find people who only see their job as, well, a job. But Dr. Mason wanted a team that was excited to wake up in the morning and get to work. He wanted to hire people who felt the same way about the plastic surgery field as he did.
Everyone at Southlake, from our surgeons to our front office coordinators, cares about what they do. This is our passion, and it shows through in everything we do.
What causes excessive hair growth?
So you have hair growing in places you don’t want it to. And despite all attempts to get rid of it, it always comes back again. Before we go over your options for laser hair removal in Dallas, we should discuss why you’re seeing excess hair in the first place.
So, why is this happening? Well, it may come down to hormone production.
Hirsutism is a condition that results in hair growth where it shouldn’t normally occur. This hair is traditionally dark and coarse, so it shows prominently on the body. This hair might grow in any number of places, including:
Hirsutism is usually found in women, but it can be found in men as well, though it may be harder to diagnose given that men’s body hair is traditionally darker and coarser than women’s hair.
Hirsutism is caused by an overabundance of androgens in the body. Men traditionally have more androgens than women, which is why dark hair may seem out of place on a woman’s body. Postmenopausal women might notice an increase in hair growth.
How common is hirsutism?
Though it isn’t talked about very often, hirsutism is actually somewhat common in women. In fact, hirsutism affects about 40% of women over the course of their lifetimes. People have the tendency to be embarrassed by natural disorders completely out of their control, but there’s nothing to be ashamed of!
That being said, you don’t have to have hirsutism to get laser hair removal in Dallas. You can schedule a laser treatment if you’re just a little sick of shaving your brow or lip every day. We don’t care, as long as you’ll be happy with how you look once it’s all said and done.
At Southlake Plastic Surgery, we want you to be open and honest with your body, because that’s the only way we can help. Don’t look at what we do as an improvement; think of it as an enhancement of what’s already there!
Try Laser Hair Removal in Dallas!
Laser hair removal could be your best bet for erasing excess hair on your body. Whether you’re a man or a woman, you could see substantial results from our hair removal processes. The process is simple and stress-free, and we’ll help you through it every step of the way.
We’ll discuss how the process works, why it’s effective, and the steps you can take to ensure that the treatment is as effective as possible.
We believe that the key to quality aesthetic care is transparency, so if you’re interested in a smooth, hairless body, then allow us to recommend a treatment that can make that happen.
One of the ways you can get rid of excess hair is through broadband light treatments. If you’re familiar with aesthetic treatments, the term broadband light (or BBL) might be a little familiar to you. That’s because BBL is often used during skin procedures.
BBL can be used to tighten skin and remove fine lines and acne. Our laser hair removal process works with the exact same technology. We just simply use the broadband lasers to remove excess hair, as opposed to stimulating collagen growth in the skin. This can provide substantial hair removal results, leaving your skin smooth and healthy.
Introducing the Forever Bare BBL
We administer the hair removal process with the Forever Bare BBL tool. The Forever Bare BBL tool is a handheld device that makes hair removal convenient and easy. In many ways, this machine is one of your best choices for laser hair removal in Dallas.
The tool is easy to use and facilitates a fast and convenient hair removal process. And thanks to the Forever Bare BBL’s motion technology, we can heat uniformly, which helps to ensure that no crevice is missed and no hair follicle remains intact.
Now, let’s go into a little more detail about how the tool actually works to remove hair.
The Technology Behind Broadband Light
When we offer a treatment at Southlake Plastic Surgery, we want to be sure that it’s a premium option for our patients.
The BBL laser technology works by eliminating hair at its source. Using a specific wavelength of light, the BBL laser can actually destroy hair follicles without causing any harm or injury to the skin tissue around them.
And we can easily switch between different spot sizes thanks to the quick-change spot size adaptors. This allows us to treat your hair follicles in a more specific, customized way. Your body is different from any other patient’s, so we want to make sure the treatment is tailored specifically for you.
As opposed to a single, intense laser, the BBL machine heats the follicles in short, succinct bursts. This cuts down on the treatment time, but it also means that the procedure itself can be more effective.
A Fool-Proof Option
Another one of the reasons we prefer Forever Bare BBL is its ease of use. Our providers want to get you in and out of your treatment as soon as possible, and an unwieldy, complicated device can cause unexpected delays. The Forever BBL, on the other hand, makes our lives easier, which in turn means we can get you on your way a little bit faster.
Where can you use the Forever Bare BBL?
Not every aesthetic treatment works on all parts of the body. Some treatments are only safe on certain parts of the area, like the face. That being said, the Forever Bare BBL treatment can safely remove hair on several parts of the body, like:
We want to help everyone that we possibly can. Fortunately, the Forever Bare BBL proves to be effective all over the body, so no matter where you’re growing unwanted hair, you could still benefit from laser hair removal in Dallas.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment time for laser hair removal in Dallas depends on one key factor: how much hair you have! If you have lots of long hair all over your body, that will take some more time to remove than someone with a couple stubborn hairs on their brow.
One of the ways you can help cut down on treatment time is by shaving any hair you want treated. This might seem counter-intuitive; isn’t removing the hair our job? But we’ll be removing the hair follicles at the source. A cleanly shaved treatment area is the best way to ensure that we have easy access to the troublesome follicles, so consider shaving the night before.
But even if you do decide to shave before your treatment, the process may take different lengths of time for different people. For instance, if a man simply needs his chest treated, this may take around 30 minutes.
However, if someone needs both of their legs treated in their entirety, that might extend the treatment time to around an hour. But rest assured, this is not an all-day procedure. We don’t want to take up too much of your time if we don’t have to.
How many treatments will you need?
You may not be too keen on the idea of scheduling multiple treatments at once. It may seem unnecessary—what if you’re happy with the results after your first treatment? But we highly recommend you schedule multiple treatments so you can see the best results.
Hair grows in cycles, so if you skip out on your prescribed sessions, you may see the return of unwanted hair growth.
If you want to see more pronounced, longer lasting results, then you should schedule at least 6 sessions, but you won’t have to complete them all at once. You should schedule these sessions 3 to 4 weeks apart for optimal hair removal results.
You may be wondering what happens after your laser hair removal in Dallas is complete. Once we’ve finished administering the treatment, we’ll make sure you’re feeling well and everything is comfortable. From there, you can go about your day as normal.
One of the major advantages of our laser hair removal process is that it won’t eat up your entire day. You may, however, notice a few physical side effects following the treatment.
You may notice that your skin may become red or irritated, but this should subside after a few days. If your skin is particularly sensitive after the treatment, we can provide a soothing balm to ease any discomfort.
Applying a cool compress will help with any temporary discomfort, as well as taking Ibuprofen. Make sure to stay out of hot tubs immediately after treatment, and avoid taking very hot showers that may irritate the newly lasered areas.
Is it a painful process?
Now, maybe you’re totally sold on the idea of a laser treatment in Dallas, but there’s a problem: You’ve got a low pain tolerance. You’re not alone, but don’t worry. We’re pleased to report that you probably won’t feel any kind of serious irritation.
Some people have likened the feeling of our laser treatments to getting snapped with a rubber band. But if that sounds a little too intense for you, we have solutions.
We have options for clients with even the most sensitive skin. We will offer you a topical anesthesia that can numb the treatment area.
