Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal with the Knox Dermatology team offers lasting results for women and men of all skin tones in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by removing unwanted hair from virtually anywhere on the face or body. It is the ideal solution for people seeking to free themselves of the endless cycle of shaving, waxing or reapplying hair removal creams. Unlike these temporary solutions that simply remove visible hair, laser hair removal works by disabling the ability for hair to grow.

Your go-to laser hair removal Dallas specialist

Knox Dermatology is your laser hair removal Dallas expert. Laser hair removal with Knox Dermatology’s advanced technology is safe, effective, and offers permanent results. Our advanced laser platform has a longer wavelength and can remove hair from small, sensitive areas as well as larger areas much more rapidly than older technologies.

Our systems are specially designed to cool and soothe as they glide along your skin, reducing discomfort and irritation during and after the procedure. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

For the best long-term results, it typically takes three to six treatments (depending on hair density) for laser hair removal to eliminate hair in an unwanted area. The number of treatments required for long-term benefits depends on hair thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, rather they go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Our treatments work by disabling the hair that is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter the active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

The length of each session depends on the surface area being treated, but our lasers are capable of treating even large areas more quickly than other lasers on the market.

Many patients report minor skin irritation, redness, and swelling immediately following the procedure. However, these side effects normally disappear within a few days. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. You should not wax or pluck your hair between treatments, but you can shave.

Following treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. Sunscreen is recommended on treated areas exposed to the sun. Your physician may also recommend you use a formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen for your skin type.

Over the course of treatment, hair will become softer, thinner, lighter and eventually fall out and not grow back.

While laser hair removal is considered a permanent solution to unwanted hair, a “touch-up treatment” every two to three years may be needed.

How does laser hair removal compare to other hair removal methods?

Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Treatment with our systems provide permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

How does it compare to electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. It often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, our systems effectively treat an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.

Why choose laser hair removal with your system over other systems?

We use the latest technology in laser hair removal – the Cutera laser. The Cutera laser can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. Cutera’s systems use longer wavelengths, allowing them to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. It can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man’s back. The cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

With treatment from a laser hair removal Dallas expert, you can get rid of unwanted hair with a virtually permanent solution.
