Laser Hair Removal: You'll Wonder Why You Waited so Long

The sun is never far away here in Texas, and with the warmer spring weather, you want to feel the comforting rays on your skin. But unwanted body and facial hair can make it embarrassing to go with your skin uncovered for warm weather. Keeping your skin covered isn’t always practical, and waxing, plucking, shaving, and creams take lots of time. And, your body hair always seems to grow back faster than wanted. 

At KeyLife Med Spa in San Antonio, Texas, Anwar Gerges, MD, and our entire team are dedicated to helping you feel good about the skin you’re in! We offer laser hair removal as part of our full line of aesthetic services. 

What’s involved with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an effective way to permanently reduce unwanted face or body hair. Using cutting edge laser technology, our team members target the cells of protein at the root of your follicles that support hair growth

Dr. Gerges and our other care providers use lasers on these cells, which are located below the surface of your skin. The result? An effective treatment that reduces hair growth without damaging your skin, giving you the smooth, silky feel you desire.    

What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

Under the skilled hands of the team at KeyLife Med Spa, you can have laser hair removal to safely treat most areas of the body. Common treatment areas include:

Our team offers personalized laser hair removal packages so you can say goodbye to shaving, plucking, or waxing for good.   

How long does laser hair removal take? 

At KeyLife Med Spa, we design a custom plan for you. Dr. Gerges or another team member develops a treatment plan that meets your unique hair removal goals. Due to this personalized care, the duration of treatments and how many treatments you need varies.

Factors like the area you’d like to have treated, how much hair removal you’re seeking, and your hair and skin color can vary treatment times from minutes to about an hour. For example, your under arms may need several minutes each, but a larger treatment area, like your legs, could require an hour or slightly longer. Because each hair on your body is at a different point in the growth cycle, it takes multiple laser hair removal sessions to target each hair effectively.

Will the hair grow back?

This cutting-edge laser treatment stops new hair growth, so most patients see results that last. Sometimes, however, new hair grows back. Different things can cause regrowth, such as changes in hormone levels. 

Even if the hair does grow back, the good news is that your new hair will be much thinner than before your laser treatment. To keep it at bay, you can schedule a quick touchup appointment for more permanent results. 

Does laser hair removal hurt?

While the majority of our patients report laser hair removal isn’t painful, everyone is different. Your response depends on your unique sensitivity and tolerance. Sometimes the response depends on the area being treated. 

Some people describe the process as a tingling or tickling sensation, while others liken it to the feeling of a rubber band snapping. In some cases, your skin can be a little irritated after your treatment session, but this goes away quickly.
