Benefits of Laser Hair Removal in McKinney

Am I a good candidate for this treatment? Will this treatment work for me?To determine whether laser hair removal is suitable for you and whether it will be effective, there are several factors to consider:

1. Desired Outcome: Laser hair removal is specifically designed for individuals who wish to permanently reduce unwanted hair on their face or body. If you are looking for long-term or permanent results and are tired of temporary hair removal methods, then laser hair removal may be a good option for you.

2. Medical History: Certain conditions may prevent you from receiving laser hair removal. If you have had previous problems with laser therapy or a history of keloid scarring, then it is important to consult with a healthcare professional to assess the safety and suitability of the treatment for you.

3. Skin Health: Active infections or a history of herpes simplex in the treatment area may need to be addressed before undergoing laser hair removal. It is important to have healthy and infection-free skin for optimal results and to minimize any potential risks.

4. Hair Removal Methods: Prior to undergoing laser hair removal, it is generally advised to refrain from using depilatories or other hair removal treatments like waxing, plucking, or electrolysis for at least six weeks. This allows the hair to be in its active growth phase, which is necessary for effective laser hair removal.

5. Sensitivities or Allergies: Individuals with hypersensitivity to hydroquinone or other bleaching agents may need to explore alternative hair removal options. It is essential to inform the healthcare professional performing the treatment about any known allergies or sensitivities.

6. Medications: If you have been taking oral Accutane, a medication used for acne treatment, it is typically recommended to discontinue its use for at least six weeks before undergoing laser hair removal. Accutane can increase the skin's sensitivity and may affect the treatment's effectiveness.

To determine if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal and if the treatment will work for you, it is advisable to consult with a qualified healthcare professional or a licensed provider of laser hair removal services. They will assess your individual circumstances, discuss any potential risks or limitations, and provide personalized recommendations.

What do you need to do before Laser Hair Removal Treatment?Unlike waxing, there is no need for long hair. Hair must be short for your laser treatment. Shave or trim the hair before your treatment. Shorter hair ensures the treatment is more comfortable for you and allows the laser energy to travel down to the follicle faster. Avoid sun exposure on the area for 2 to 3 weeks before treatment, and 1 to 2 weeks after treatment.

How many sessions will I need to see results?To determine the number of sessions required to observe noticeable results, it is important to consider several factors unique to each individual. These factors include the individual's skin type, hair color and texture, as well as the specific area being treated. While variations may occur, it is generally recommended that most patients undergo a series of 6 treatments per treatment area. This provides a general guideline, but it is essential to consult with a professional to establish a personalized treatment plan tailored to achieve optimal results. By considering these individual characteristics, the number of sessions necessary to observe desired outcomes can be determined more accurately.

What happens during the actual treatment?You will be shown to a private laser hair removal treatment room and allowed time to undress to allow access to the body area being treated. After allowing time to undress (if necessary for treatment), your Certified Laser Hair Removal Professional (CLHRP) will return knocking on the door before entering.

The CLHRP will always explain what is happening and what they are going to do during your laser hair removal procedure. Together with your CLHRP, you will wear safety glasses to protect your eyes during the procedure. The CLHRP will use a small handpiece that touches your skin to deliver the laser pulse.

You will feel the cool air on your skin throughout the laser treatment session. Lasers work by delivering an intense beam of light that is absorbed by the skin. This light is converted to heat and is absorbed by the cells being targeted while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.

It is important to understand that hair in the active growth phase is most affected by treatments as the hair contains optimum levels of melanin, which is directly targeted by the laser.

The laser does not break the skin; there are no needles or blood. At Athens Laser Hair Removal, the Cynosure Elite laser machines have a cooling device. This cools the skin by blowing cold air onto the skin to cool it, making the treatment more comfortable. Clients have compared the feeling to an elastic band snapping against the skin but patients’ individual pain thresholds can vary.

What about post-treatment care?Before
In general, avoid sun exposure on the area for 2 to 3 weeks before a Laser hair removal procedure, and again 1 to 2 weeks after the treatment. We recommend applying Sunscreen with at least 15+ SPF before even casual exposure to the sun. Be very aware of your skin in the sun after your laser hair removal treatment, your skin is sun sensitive, and be careful not to expose the area to the direct sun.

Your hair can take up to 2 weeks to fall out. It may fall out up to the 14th day after the treatment. Exfoliate the treated area 3 days after the treatment to help the falling out process. Firmly rub over the body area treated while showering. This assists the hairs to fall out.

Once your laser hair removal treatments have started, forcing the hair from the follicle will reverse the effect of the treatment. Therefore, waxing, plucking, and other similar treatments are not recommended. However, you may shave, trim, and use depilatory creams or clippers between treatments if needed.

Your CLHRP at Athens Laser Hair Removal will explain the requirements to you before your first treatment. Call us at 972-468-9779 or 855-293-4247 to arrange a FREE consultation to discuss a treatment plan that suits your needs.

Will my hair ever grow back?The longevity of the results and the permanence of hair removal vary based on individual factors. It primarily depends on the growth pattern of your hair. While some individuals may experience longer-lasting hair removal, others might notice sporadic hair growth in the treated area, which may necessitate touch-up treatments to maintain the desired results. Therefore, the duration of the results cannot be definitively stated and can vary from person to person.

Do I need to plan for time off, for the treatments?No. Laser Hair Removal requires no “down time” or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

How do I know it won’t hurt?Most people find Laser Treatments comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage.” If you find it otherwise, talk with your Laser Hair Professional.

How much does it cost?Compared with a lifetime of shaving, waxing, or plucking, Laser treatments can be a worthwhile investment in both time and money savings. Fees are based on the treatment area and how many sessions you may need. We offer a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a good candidate.

If I got a treatment on my face, can I put makeup up on right after?Certainly! After receiving a treatment on your face, it is generally safe to apply makeup immediately. However, it is important to take some precautions before doing so. Firstly, ensure that your face is well-cleaned and free from any excess product or residue. This will help your makeup adhere better and prevent any potential irritation. Additionally, it is highly recommended to apply sunscreen before putting on makeup to provide added protection for your skin. Sunscreen helps shield your face from harmful UV rays, especially if the treatment may have temporarily increased its sensitivity. By following these steps, you can safely and effectively apply makeup following a facial treatment.

Hair Removal Expertise

There are many hair removal treatments and locations to choose from. You can check out Groupon deals in the McKinney area. They offer very low prices for their treatments, they don't last very long in business.  A few things to think about when purchasing a Groupon deal for Laser Hair Removal in McKinney Texas.

  • Number of Groupon deals sold. Each deal sold equals 6 visits to the laser center. Count how many deals are sold, say for example there were 1000 packages sold. That equals 6000 treatments over 48 weeks. That’s about 25 new clients per day for that time period.
  • Just imagine the scheduling challenges and the extra staff required to handle more clients. The larger laser centers could handle a clientele increase but I’d be concerned with the small laser centers; can they really handle that many clients?  Make sure and do your homework.
  • The length of time the offer is good for. Remember each treatment should be spaced out from 6-8 weeks apart. If they recommend anything outside of those time parameters then you will miss the hair growth cycle. Make sure the treatments don’t have to be completed in a shorter period of time.
  • Types of Lasers used. Make sure the lasers are not IPL.  The IPL is a great laser but not the best of Laser Hair Removal. Results may vary as some people have had great results but most results are poor at best.

The True Lasers

At Athens Laser Hair Removal we only have the very best lasers with the very best results! The Nd: Yag is capable of treating all six skin colors, although its best on the darker skin types and is very successful. The Alexandrite laser has a shorter wavelength system 755 nm, and in my opinion the best for clients with lighter skin and darker hair. My clients have been so satisfied with their results.
