What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. This treatment reduces hair follicles on the face or body long-term. Patients love that it leaves their skin looking and feeling smoother — with longer-lasting results than other options for hair removal. At Clear Lake Dermatology in League City and Webster, TX, our board-certified dermatologists, perform effective and safe laser hair removal treatments with Candela GentleMax Pro or Lumenis® M22™. For both men and women, we can remove hair from frequently desired areas, such as the arms, back, legs, face, chest, and bikini area.

Hair removal with a laser is a gentle procedure that can benefit most people. During your initial consultation, we'll discuss your needs, concerns, and goals so that we can determine whether the procedure is the best option for you. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Are tired of using other hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Maintain good, overall health
Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
On the day of your procedure, you can relax in a comfortable treatment chair while we clean your skin to remove any dirt, oil, or lotion. During the procedure, a team member will stretch out the skin, creating a direct path from the laser to the root of the hair follicle. The laser beam focuses on and destroys hair follicles, thus preventing their regrowth. Most patients need 3 – 5 sessions to achieve the results they want. We'll space out your sessions 3 –4 weeks apart to give the treated areas a chance to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to change and actively start growing so the laser is more effective on the next pass. This revolutionary laser hair removal technology targets the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin around the treated area.
What to Expect
Although this treatment is relatively gentle, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn because of the laser. After your session, you can resume most of your daily activities, but you should avoid strenuous activity and excessive exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours. This will give the treated areas a chance to recover. At home following your treatment, we recommend using soothing creams or cold packs to minimize any mild discomfort. If you schedule the required amount of sessions, you should see a 70 – 80% reduction of hair growth in treated areas.
