Replace Razors with Lasers
Body hair isn't necessarily a problem; we've all got it. The issue arises when hair persists in locations where you personally do not want it. For example, unwanted hair on the face, legs, underarms, or bikini line can be unsightly and uncomfortable, not to mention inconvenient to shave, pluck, or wax regularly. In addition, these temporary hair removal techniques might be more uncomfortable than simply removing the hair using a more long-term solution. Embrace your personal aesthetic without sacrificing comfort with laser hair removal at Face Forward Houston. Laser hair removal works by heating the hair follicles to stop new hairs from growing. This puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long period of time — much longer than with shaving and waxing. If the hairs do grow back, they'll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number.
Dramatic Reduction in Body Hair
Laser hair removal works by aiming the laser energy at the pigment of the unwanted hair. This damages the hair follicle and makes hair growth much slower. Even though the procedure doesn't cause permanent hair loss, hair growth is significantly reduced.
At Face Forward Houston, laser hair removal is customized to fit your skin and hair type. Our experienced aesthetic providers provide safe, effective, and lasting results. We look forward to welcoming you to the Face Forward family.

No More Plucking, Waxing, or Shaving
You no longer have to spend hours plucking, shaving, or going through the pain of waxing. At Face Forward Houston, laser hair removal offers an easy way to remove hair where you don't want it, for good. So make an appointment today to get the smooth, low-maintenance skin of your dreams. Our aesthetic providers will listen carefully to your goals and customize the best treatment plan for you.
Your aesthetic provider will administer a focused wavelength of heat and light to the skin, focusing on the hair follicle, where the melanin, or pigment, gets absorbed into the laser energy. Laser hair removal can be effective on a wide variety of skin and pigmented hair types because the laser frequency can be modified for the needs of each patient. However, because the laser reacts to the hair's pigment, it is not recommended for lighter or finer hair. It is also not recommended for patients with dark skin. Electrolysis would be the better option in this case. Your laser hair removal session will typically last between 10 minutes and an hour, depending on the size of the area treated.
Most people who get laser hair removal will have some redness, slight swelling, and sensitivity afterward. Most of the time, these side effects only last a few hours. Applying a cold compress to the treatment area can help relieve pain and swelling, and aloe can help soothe the skin. Some people may have an initial skin reaction after the treatment. If this happens, your provider will apply a steroid cream to the area to reduce inflammation. After laser hair removal, your skin will also be sensitive to light, so you should stay out of the sun for at least six weeks and use sunscreen daily.
After each laser hair removal session, the hair will fall out slowly over the course of a few days. If hair does grow back, it will be much thinner and lighter than before.
You should shave the morning or night before your appointment. But you should hold off on waxing for four to six weeks leading up to your treatment.
The benefits of laser hair removal can’t be achieved without some level of discomfort. Laser hair reduction will likely be the least uncomfortable option when compared to alternatives such as waxing. Laser hair reduction feels much like a small rubber band is being snapped against your skin. Some of the latest lasers have a cooling effect both before & after
We are all unique & diverse with our own heritage, medical history, age, skin type, hair pigmentation, the area being treated & most importantly, what our personal goals are. Results may be seen in as little as four treatments. However, the average patient may require 6 - 12 treatments to achieve their hair reduction goal. Afterward, annual maintenance visits may be something that is recommended.
