San Antonio Laser Hair Removal Services
Laser hair removal, or laser hair reduction, is a great way to remove unwanted hair. This long term solution is more popular than other hair removal methods such as electrolysis, waxing and shaving because it is faster, less painful and less time consuming. Laser hair removal has become a popular hair removal technique. White Pearl patients can feel comfortable knowing that they are using a fast, easy and effective method for removing any and all unwanted hair.
Laser Hair Removal disables hundreds of hair follicles with infrared energy. The procedure is safe, fast and effective for all body parts including the face, back, chest, bikini line, legs, arms and underarms. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results. At White Pearl Medical Spa, we have multiple laser hair removal technologies, making it possible to treat all skin with Cutera’s Xeo Platform, Coolglide and Prowave technologies.

After completing the treatment plan, patients describe the experience as a long overdue lifestyle change; most are amazed they ever spent so much time and money on razors, creams or waxing.
Our laser hair removal system uses a combination of energy and heat to destroy follicles without harming the skin around them. After a series of sessions, you’ll experience permanent hair reduction. Depending which area(s) you decide to treat, you will be confident to slip into a swimsuit, without worrying about razor burn, irritation, or ingrown hairs.
It depends on the area, small areas can take only 5-15 minutes, while larger areas may take up to an hour, the more surface area there is to treat, the longer your appointment will take. The body contains millions of hair follicles, all of which cycle through different phases at different times. Laser hair removal can only treat a certain percentage of those follicles at a time, hair follicles that are in the active growth phase. This is why treatments must be done at varied intervals. The goal is to treat each of the hair follicles during their active growth phase.
Since no two bodies are the same, your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to you. White Pearl Medical Spa typically recommends at least six laser hair removal sessions that take place 6-8 weeks apart. Once again, this depends on where your hair is in the growth cycle and will be adjusted based on the results you are receiving. Different areas of the body also get different results, some patients are satisfied with less than six treatments, some require a few more.
Laser hair removal is very simple to prepare for. Nobody will know you are undergoing treatment (unless, of course, you tell them). Laser hair removal sessions can be as short as five minutes (after your initial visit and consultation). We just ask that you pay attention to 3 main laser hair removal rules prior to your treatment.
Have the area(s) to be treated freshly shaven.
Avoid prolonged or excessive sun exposure or tanning to the area(s). Including fake tanning, spray tanning, and bronzers.
Do not use any anti-biotics 10-14 days prior to the treatment, most anti-biotics are sun-sensitive medications and may affect your body’s reaction to the treatment. If you are unsure on any medications, please contact our office prior to your appointment.
Most patients describe the sensation as a “hot rubber band snap” or a mild “hot pinch.” In most cases, the sensation goes away almost immediately. With every medical procedure, different patients have different levels of pain, these varied levels also extend to different areas on the body. Everyone has a different opinion on the level of comfort experienced during the laser hair removal treatment as well as which area is more or less difficult.
White Pearl offers options to make the experience more comfortable, including a chiller that blows cool air on the area which helps to “numb” before the laser hair removal treatment and increases comfort throughout the procedure. Many patients say holding an ice pack to the area a few minutes before works the best for them.
Yes. We ask that you continue to shave throughout your treatment plan and do not wax, tweeze, thread, or use bleach and hair removal creams as it may affect your results. Other forms of hair removal throughout the laser hair removal treatment plan may also result in other complications within the area, including hyperpigmentation.
The laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle, so the areas where the hair is darkest and skin is lightest will experience the quickest and most effective results. We customize your laser hair removal treatment to match what is right for your hair color, skin color and type. As long as there is some pigment in your hair then our laser hair removal system will be effective.
With any medical treatment, it is difficult to determine exactly how your body will react to the treatments and what results will be achieved. We are proud to stand behind our services and believe that all of our patients deserve the best results possible. Most patients are satisfied after six treatments, but there are cases which additional laser hair removal treatments are needed, or desired by the patient.
