Hair Removal

Providing you with safe and pain-free hair removal

The specialists at the Skin Renewal Suite at Methodist Physicians Clinic Women’s Center use the latest technology to make your experience with hair removal virtually painless. The Alma SopranoXL's patented IN-Motion™ technology, you'll gain the benefits of faster, more comfortable hair removal with fewer visits.

This laser uses a sweeping, paintbrush technique to heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer until they can no longer produce new hair. Because the laser is in constant motion, a wider area can be treated, achieving better results in less time even in sensitive areas like the face, neck and bikini, as well as chest, back, arms and legs.

Common Questions about Hair Removal

How does the laser hair removal treatment get rid of my hair?

The Laser Hair Removal Treatment uses gentle light to deactivate the hair follicle. This prevents the follicle from growing hair. Gradually, over several treatments, there is a permanent reduction in the amount of hair in that area.

Is hair removal treatment safe?

Hair removal treatments at the Skin Renewal Suite are very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the laser hair removal treatment technology that make it one of the safest hair removal systems available for all skin colors. There are no long-term health hazards from the light used in the laser hair removal treatment and has been used for decades in medicine, surgery and aesthetics.

What kind of results can I expect from laser hair removal treatment?

Each treatment will result in less hair, as well as hair growing progressively lighter in color, finer, and slower-growing with each treatment. It takes more than one treatment to affect all the follicles growing in an area. Most people achieve satisfactory clearance after 4 - 6 treatments, but individual results vary depending on medical and genetic factors. Lighter-colored hair may require more treatments than darker colored hair.

How frequently do I need hair removal treatments?

The hair removal treatments are usually performed every 6 - 8 weeks, but this depends on individual factors that your physician will discuss with you during the consultation.

Does the hair removal treatment hurt?

The sensation is often described as a "hot pinch", or "snapping" feeling, but this depends on individual factors that your physician will discuss with you during the consultation.

What happens after each hair removal treatment?

Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The treated area will "shed" some hairs over the next 3 - 4 weeks, and you may experience a period of hairlessness in the area while you wait for your next treatment.
