iLIFE's highly trained laser technicians have access to state-of-the-art laser technology that eliminates up to 70 percent of the treated hair. Dare to go bare at iLIFE!
Unwanted face and body hair can be embarrassing. While it is easy to reach for a razor, the trade-off is usually irritation and shaving bumps that defeat the purpose of shaving and make it impossible to show off your skin. Not sexy. Of course, you could step into the salon for a quick wax, but the hairs sprout up again just a few weeks later.
The next thing you know, you are right back in the salon for another painful waxing session. If you’re like most people, waxing may leave you with angry ingrown hairs. You also have to go a few days or weeks to let the hairs grow out before seeing your waxer to have them ripped out again. Needless to say, the grow-out period can be inconvenient—especially when you have a date night or vacation coming up. If you are looking for a permanent hair removal solution, then Houston laser hair removal at iLIFE might be for you. Lasers work by emitting light energy to destroy the hair root, causing the hairs to fall out. Unlike shaving and waxing, the treated hairs won’t grow back.
Our Houston laser hair removal patients do not experience skin infections, bumps, or even have to wait for the hair to grow out before their next treatment. In most cases, the fuzz-free results last between six months to a year before needing a touch-up. Consider it your long-term solution to pesky face and body hair.
iLIFE treats both women and men who want to remove body and facial hair. There are only a few instances when laser hair removal is not appropriate. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have laser hair removal. Certain lasers only work on dark hair and light skin tones. For individuals who have dark skin, iLIFE's laser specialists will select either an Nd:YAG or diode laser. For the best results, avoid tanning before your treatment. To determine if you are an ideal candidate for laser hair removal, book a no-obligation consultation at iLIFE in Houston. They will curate a treatment plan based on the coarseness and density of your hair as well as your unique skin tone to ensure you get the best laser hair removal Houston has to offer.
Your iLIFE laser hair removal specialist will explain the process to you before you get started. Please arrive with your hair shaved at the treatment site. This step is necessary because dark pigment attracts the laser beam and we want to treat the hair root only. They will apply a topical anesthetic cream or ice to the area to ensure total comfort during your treatment. Next, they will pulse the handheld laser wand over the area, working in small sections at a time. You may feel a sensation of warmth or a quick rubber band snap as the device works over your skin. The process takes anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours depending on the size and number of areas treated.
There is no downtime after laser hair removal. Mild swelling, itching, and stinging are common temporary side effects. Avoid perfumes, deodorants, and active skincare ingredients such as AHAs, BHAs, and retinol for several days before and after your treatment. Restrict your use of saunas and hot showers for at least 24 hours afterward. Sun protection is a must as your skin may be more sensitive to sunburn initially.
Hair grows in stages. Most people need six to 12 sessions of laser hair removal to achieve the desired outcome.
The finer and less dense the hair, the fewer sessions you may need. The results are considered permanent, although you may need to come in for a touch-up at six to 12 months initially. Any hairs that grow back will be thinner and sparser.
