What is Laser Hair Removal?

Hair removal with our Cutera xeo Laser System is a convenient method for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the body and face. At Essential Med Aesthetics, our laser treatment can produce real results. Your skin can look and feel smoother with long-lasting results from laser hair removal compared to other common methods. Board-certified physician Dr. Freda Cobbinah in San Antonio, TX performs safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for women and men in needed areas such as the back, legs, arms, face, chest, armpits, and intimate areas. We would like to offer you a consultation for laser hair removal at our practice at your earliest convenience.

How do I qualify for Laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a powerhouse treatment that saves a lot of time for most patients who spend hours of their lives plucking, waxing, shaving, or tweezing their unwanted hair. At your initial consultation, we'll discuss your needs, concerns, and goals so we can determine whether you're a good candidate for this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:

  • Have unwanted hair on their face or body
  • Want to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
  • Are in good overall health

If you have a skin condition or inflammation that could be triggered by the laser, Dr. Cobbinah may have alternatives in mind for you. Don't count yourself out; consult with her first.

Our Laser Hair Removal Technique

On the day of your appointment, you'll be asked to sit or lie down in one of our treatment rooms for your laser hair removal. We will first wash your skin to remove oil, dirt, and moisturizers. During the treatment, we'll stretch your skin out by hand to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser, which will target and damage the follicle, preventing the hair from growing back.

Usually, you'll need 3 – 5 treatments at 3 – 4-week intervals to achieve your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas to heal. It also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant phase to present themselves if they were missed in the first session. The Cutera xeo Laser System we use at Essential Med Aesthetics is able to target only the hair follicle. It will preserve your skin and other tissue near the target area.

What to Expect

While laser hair removal is mostly gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may feel slightly sunburned on the surface following your treatment. This is a normal response. After your session, you'll be able to go back to your daily activities, but you should refrain from exercise or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least one day to let the treated areas recover. When you get home following your treatment, we recommend applying an anti-inflammatory topical ointment or cold pack to minimize any mild discomfort.
