What Makes Advanced Skin Fitness the Best Laser Hair Removal Service in Dallas?

No other hair removal medspa in Dallas offers the same level of effective treatment and cutting edge next generation laser treatments combined with affordability that Advanced Skin Fitness does.
Our GentleLASE laser hair removal process is newer, faster, more permanent and safer than prior technologies.

Laser hair removal eliminates nasty cuts from shaving, the eye-watering sting from tweezing and the scorching burns and swelling from waxing and depilatories. Advanced Skin Fitness is equipped to provide the safest, most painless and cost-efficient non-invasive alternatives to traditional laser treatments. We recommend laser hair removal as a better alternative to electrolysis which takes longer and is more costly than contemporary laser treatments. Using laser hair removal is ideal for those sensitive areas and fast hair removal. Because laser hair removal involves using light to penetrate the hair follicles, it can zap multiple hairs at once easily, quickly and safely. We’ve addressed some common questions that men, women, and patients having facial hair removal may have before the procedure.

Will Laser Hair Removal Work for Anyone?

Laser hair removal works on most men and women and on all types of skin including tanned skin and skin of color. Removing hair with laser treatment is recommended for most people, even those with darker skin, who may be at risk of burning or hyperpigmentation. As long as the correct lasers are used, people with darker skin should have a comfortable experience.Laser Hair Removal vs Waxing

Laser Hair Removal vs Waxing

Laser treatment and waxing both remove unwanted hair, but laser treatment is permanent and waxing is not. Laser treatment offers permanent hair removal, eventually after multiple treatments. In between treatments, patients will notice thinner, lighter hair until the hair can no longer grow in that area. Waxing may slow down the regrowth process, but the hair follicle is not destroyed, so hair will continue to grow back just as thick. There is a stinging pain associated with waxing followed by a throbbing to the area that has been treated. Laser treatment is usually not as uncomfortable but can feel unpleasant without a topical anesthetic to ease the discomfort. Waxing is slightly less costly than laser treatment, but over time, the laser treatment will be more cost effective, since the hair will stop growing in the treated area.

Who Should Avoid Laser Hair Removal?

Patients with medical conditions, allergies, certain medications, and recent tans may have an adverse reaction to the laser treatment or find that it’s not very effective. In addition, laser hair removal is now approved for use on pregnant women.

What do I do Before My Treatment?

There are some practices and things to avoid to ensure the best results. Patients should notify their technician of any cosmetic products, medications, prescriptions or vitamins they may be consuming or using. Accutane and certain medications should be avoided. They can sometimes make patients photosensitive. Avoid the treatment if you have cold sores or have used self-tanners. Refrain from removing facial hair at least three days before the laser treatment. Waxing or plucking should be done at least 4 weeks prior to the laser treatment and should be stopped one laser hair removal has started.

What do I do About Regrowth After My Treatment?

Patients should avoid plucking and waxing. Plucking and waxing are advised against. These techniques will remove the root, which will make laser treatment less effective since it needs to target the root to destroy the hair follicle. Shaving is the best option between sessions, but likely the hair will be so light and fine during your follow up treatments that no shaving will be needed.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?

Depending on how much hair is being removed, it can be a few minutes. Choosing laser treatment to remove hair is a faster and easier procedure than conventional methods like waxing and plucking. For areas like underarms and upper lip hair removal, the procedure is fast, possibly 5 minutes. Larger areas such as full backs or full legs could take a couple of hours. It’s a great solution that allows a long stretch between hair removal maintenance and possible ingrown hairs.
