Best Candidates

Historically, laser hair removal has been more effective on light-skinned individuals with dark hair. New generation lasers have allowed darker-skinned individuals with dark hair to be better candidates for the treatment. However, since lasers can’t essentially “see” light-colored hair, such as blond, white, gray or red hair, these individuals aren’t the best candidates for laser hair removal. There are new options being developed to assist those with lighter hair colors. 

Candidates who are looking to have laser hair removal, can greatly benefit from our in-house technologies aimed at hair removal. Various modalities exist within our dermatology center depending on your specific skin type, hair type, and needs. Patients undergoing laser hair removal often wish to finally rid themselves of:

  • Razor bumps (PFB)
  • Beard bumps (PFB)
  • In grown hairs
  • Consistent razor burn from shaving
  • Daily shaving
  • Expensive, uncomfortable, and frequent waxing appointment

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a nonsurgical treatment that is used to remove hair from different areas of the body. At TruDerm, we take great pride in utilizing the latest technology on the cosmetic market to provide the best results possible. With the GentleMax Pro laser by Syneron Candela, one of our skilled providers are able to safely remove hair for patients of all skin types. This procedure is effective in preventing future hair growth and producing beautifully long-lasting results. Common areas of treatment include the face, chest, arms, back, bikini line, underarms, and legs. Call our dermatological practice in Allen and Plano, TX today to learn more. 

About the Procedure

The principle behind laser hair removal uses intense, pulsating beams of light, which are applied to the skin to target the hair follicle. When specific wavelengths of light are matched with pulse duration, this allows the best opportunity of effectively targeting the hair. The laser’s intense heat damages the hair follicle, which reduces the amount of hair growth, while at the same time, protects surrounding tissue from the heat of the laser. The process must be completed a number of times since hair goes through phases such as rest and growth, and laser treatment isn’t effective on hair in the rest phase. Our office will schedule the appointments as recommended by your provider so that the area of hair being removed is maximized during treatment.

What to Expect

Before treatment, hair may need to be trimmed since laser removal isn’t as effective on longer hair. A patient may be given protective eyewear to protect the eyes. Your provider will test a patch on the treatment area to determine the best settings for the individual as well as to check for any adverse effects. With controlled movements, the handheld device will be placed on the skin where short spurts of laser beams will work to damage the follicles. Sessions are relatively quick, sometimes just a few minutes, depending on the size and location of the treatment area. There is no downtime and most patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
