While there are many options available when considering laser hair removal, Dr.Peter Malouf and his expert staff employ the most state-of-the-art laser systems in the DFW when removing unwanted hair. The light from the lasers is absorbed by the pigment in your actively growing hair, which effectively disables the hair follicle in which it rests. This hair removal treatment can be individually tailored to the patient’s skin type, thus maximizing safety and efficacy. This laser technology can remove hair from both the face and body, even being effective in areas as sensitive as the upper lip.
Not only does laser hair treatment remove the hair, but it also removes it from below the skin where razors cannot reach. Because of this, patients lose the dark shadow appearance the can still be visible right after a shave. It is because of the melanin in this sub surface hair that you may look unshaven even when you have.
Because this treatment can only target hair that is in an active growth phase, it may take numerous treatments for the best results. It is important to understand that this specifically targets the hair follicle, so shaving beforehand will yield best results. Treatments are spaced 6-8 weeks apart, and the number of sessions varies depending on the location and quantity of the unwanted hair.
