Laser hair removal in Houston is very popular and will only increase in popularity. Removing hair with a laser is achieved by targeting the coloration in the hair with a laser of specific wavelength that obliterates the hair growing base of the hair, leading to loss of its ability to grow or regenerate. For laser hair removal to work properly, only a laser of proper wavelength will work, or the treatment will be less effective or not effective at all.
Dr. Steely at Steely Plastic Surgery has done extensive research in the wide variety of laser hair removal machines, and we use an Alexandrite laser for laser hair removal. Dr. Steely feels that this laser gives the best treatment for laser hair removal over the widest range of skin types. Dr. Steely uses the Candela Gentlelase Alexandrite Hair removal laser not only for its superior hair removal ability, but its patient comfort during hair removal treatment. The Candela Gentlase is unique in using a blast of very cold air with each firing of the laser to minimize discomfort during your laser hair removal treatment.
