Unwanted hair can be an embarrassing. Traditional laser hair removal techniques provide only temporary relief and may actually stimulate hair growth. Dermatology Center of Dallas offers enhanced laser hair removal technology which isolates the energy of the treatment to the hair base and not to the skin or other unwanted areas. Hair experiences three phases of growth: anagen, catagen and telogen. The goal in laser hair removal for our Dallas dermatology patients is for the laser light to penetrate to the depth of the hair follicle during the anagen phase (when it reacts to laser light) to achieve long-term results. This is why, depending on the area, you will need to be treated anywhere from 2 – 7 times. Ask your health care provider if laser hair removal treatment is right for you.
