For many men and women, unwanted hair can be a nightmare. Getting rid of unwanted hair can be a painful and frustrating experience. Until more recently the only options for removing unwanted facial (upper lip, chin, beard, eyebrows, cheeks), body, underarm, back, bikini, and leg hair were smelly hair removal creams, sharp razors, stinging wax or painful electrolysis needles. Our advanced approach to beautiful skin provides the ultimate solution for body hair removal. We use the Lyra 1064 Yag laser by Iridex for hair removal. This system is FDA approved and safe on all skin types, tones, and on all skin colors including black skin.
Laser Hair Removal can be done on either men or women. From treating men for facial wrinkles with Botox to Liposuction for "love handles" men are looking for "manscaping" hair be gone services. Men are looking to trim the beard line and neck and of course no one wants to look like Sasquatch on purpose, because Bear Backs are simply not attractive!
With safety in mind Dr. Caglia sees all patients in consultation and is the one who delivers the laser hair removal procedure. Dr. Caglia feels strongly that physician guided and administered hair removal treatment prevents the complications of burns and scars that can be caused when the incorrect wavelength or settings are used. More importantly if a complication should arise a physician should be present to guide your treatment in an attempt to avoid a poor outcome. Patients should be wary of "Med Spas" and laser hair removal clinics that only have a "medical director" and no physician present on site. Cheaper is not always better and it is definitely not safer!
Dr. Caglia performs Laser Hair Removal and body hair reduction for men and women of Plano, Dallas, Frisco, Allen, McKinney, Southlake, Grapevine, Addison, Irving, Richardson, Mesquite, Garland, Fort Worth, White Rock, Rockwall and throughout Texas to deliver to both men and women satisfying laser hair removal results. Laser hair removal can be done on the face, body, underarms, back, bikini area and legs and in most other places on the body.
What is the Laser Hair Removal process?
Laser hair removal uses a low-energy laser to gently remove unwanted body hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. This advanced technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long-lasting results. Because the laser treats more than one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face. Laser treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. Best of all, Laser Hair Removal treatments are a safe, fast, gentle, and effective alternative method for hair removal.
How is Laser Hair Removal different from electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a much slower process. With electrolysis a needle is actually inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard hair growth. Laser Hair Removal uses the cool light of the laser to scan the treatment area and within minutes all of the hairs in the laser's beam are treated. Most patients who have had both procedures say that Laser Hair Removal is less painful, faster and more convenient.
What is laser hair removal like?
Laser Hair Removal is a gentle three-step process. First, we gently cleanse the area to be treated. Next, we shave the area. Then the area is scanned with the laser. The laser energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. In a fraction of a second, all of the treated hair follicles are disabled.
Treatments can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the size of the area being treated.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
- Larger areas may be treated using lasers than with electrolysis, waxing or tweezing.
- It combines the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis.
- Laser Hair Removal is effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, younger, hair-free skin is desired.
- Laser hair removal is the treatment of choice for Psuedofolliculitis Barbae (PFB) simply called razor bumps of the neck.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair's growth cycle. Your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence it's growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair's location, thickness and resilience.
The laser slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Treatment results will vary from patient to patient depending on skin and hair color.
Note: Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. The opposite is usually the case. The laser may cause hair to come back slower and regrow thinner and lighter in color.
After Dr. Caglia performs your Laser Hair Removal treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after laser treatments. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun and you should always avoid unnecessary exposure to prevent photoaging and skin cancers.
