About Laser Hair Removal
Hair removal with a laser has become one of the most popular elective procedures in America. It's an effective method for the long-term reduction or removal of unwanted hair on the face and/or body. This treatment typically leaves the skin feeling and looking smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other common hair removal options. At Refine Medical Spa in Southlake, TX, we perform safe and effective laser hair removal treatments using the advanced Lumenis M22 laser system. We offer services for both men and women in common areas, such as the legs, back, arms, face, armpits, and bikini area.
"I recently traveled from Phoenix AZ to Dallas just so Sam could do my lip injections. It was well worth the trip. I was injected yesterday and the swelling has already went down to the point I could go to work and no one has noticed a thing. Lip injections are tricky you cannot just go to anyone. I'm on the second day and my lips do not look duck like they look natural and full. Sam has also done my botox and fillers. I would never let anyone else touch my face. She's able to notice lines and suggest fillers in places that really make a difference in your appearance. Sam loves her clients and has a serious passion for what she does and it shows!"- C.M. / Yelp / Aug 14, 2017
"This med spa is like no other I’ve been too. They are the most patient friendly people I’ve ever met in this type of business. They’re professional, yet make you feel so relaxed and welcome. Other places have made me feel like I’m wasn’t “good enough” to be there because I wasn’t willing to do so much to my face that it would make me feel uncomfortable with how I looked. My experience at Refine was nothing short of excellent from the moment I walked in and was greeted by Amber to my consultation and treatment with Kerry. She’s so awesome at what she does!! I can’t recommend this med spa enough. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!!! They will have all of my business!!"- J.T. / Facebook / Mar 14, 2019
"I wish I could give the 100 stars! This med spa is like no other I've experienced. The staff is so awesome. From the moment I walked in the door and was greeted by Amber, I felt like I was a member of their family. Then I had my treatment from Kerry, and she really knows her stuff! She answered all my questions and really made me feel confident that I was in great hands with her. She's very professional, but made me feel so relaxed at the same time. Other spas I've been to always had employees that were so overdone with fillers, etc that I wouldn't let them touch me with a ten foot pole...I'd be so afraid they would make me look as so in-natural as they did. And the others would make me feel like I wasn't "good enough" to be there because I wasn't willing to do all that to my face. Refine Medical Spa has given me the confidence that they will do only what's best for me and my skin. Kerry is very versatile in her skills and I will most definitely be giving her my business and referring my friends as well. Thanks Kerry for being so awesome and I can't WAIT for my next appointment!!! See you all soon!"- J.T. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2019
"The staff was very thorough in explaining exactly what to expect before administering the filler in my face, and to what areas would produce the more rested and youthful appearance I was looking for. I did not want it to appear that I’d had something done. I walked out looking natural and like I’d had a nice long vacation! My thanks to the staff!"- S.B. / Google / Jan 31, 2019
"My experience at Refine was as perfect as I would expect for my first time ever getting botox and fillers. The staff at Refine offer top notch customer service, and are very knowledgeable about the products. As a first timer, I had a lot of questions, and Anne was more than happy to answer all my questions and address all my concerns. Same goes for Jana - Jana administered my lip filler and I could not be happier! You are certainly in good hands with the staff at Refine. I believe the products and services are fairly priced and they offer great specials!"- A.B. / Yelp / Jan 14, 2019
Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that is effective for many individuals. During your initial consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have dark hair and light skin
- Are in good, overall physical health
On the day of your appointment, you will be able to relax in one of our private treatment rooms as the areas of your face and body that are being treated are washed to eliminate oil, dirt, and lotions. During the procedure, a team member will slightly stretch the area to create a clear pathway between the laser and the hair follicle root. The laser beam will focus on the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again. On average, you will need to get 6 – 12 treatments over 4 – 6 weeks to achieve your best results. Your treatments are staggered to give the affected areas a chance to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase to cycle into the phase of active growth so the laser can be effective. The specialized laser hair removing technology we use at Refine Medical Spa targets only the hair follicle, preserving the skin and other tissue in the treatment area.
What to Expect
Although laser hair removal is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you are able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to avoid exercise or sun exposure for at least a day to let the treated skin recover. At home following your session, we suggest soothing creams or ice packs to alleviate any mild discomfort.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that varies in cost due to a number of factors, including the area being treated, the size of the area, how much hair removal is desired, and the number of treatment sessions required to meet these goals. When we assess pricing with our patients, we often discuss the long-term costs associated with other ongoing treatments, such as professional waxing. Laser hair removal may be more costly than waxing or other hair removal methods, but it generally works the best for a long-term, lasting result and ends up being more cost-effective. We will create a custom plan for you that includes the total number of sessions recommended and pricing options to consider.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal generally causes only minor discomfort. In most patients, a mild sting will be felt as the laser is treating the targeted area. Overall, however, this treatment is not considered painful. Prior to your laser hair removal session, we can apply a numbing topical ointment to help control any discomfort. For patients who are used to getting waxed on a regular basis, they tell us that laser hair removal causes much less discomfort than a typical waxing session
How effective is laser hair removal?
While most patients will need more than one treatment to attain the right result, laser hair removal is known to be an effective and good solution for hair reduction and removal. The results can last for years before a touch-up treatment may be necessary. Additional treatments can be scheduled to take care of any new growth or stragglers from the initial sessions.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth in both men and women occurs in varying cycles. Some hair may be in a live growing phase while other follicles may be dormant. Laser hair removal removes the hair from the follicle, but in order for this to happen effectively, the laser must be able to see the hair to target and remove it. If a follicle is dormant, it is harder for the laser to read. Therefore, to treat every follicle at each stage, it is necessary to perform multiple treatments so that each follicle is, at some point, targeted during the active phase. Between your scheduled treatment sessions, the hairs that do grow can be shaved because these follicles are not yet affected. At Refine Medical Spa, we recommend spreading out your sessions over various weeks to help remove each follicle during its live phase for the smoothest, most effective result.
Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many terrific lasers on the market today. Refine Medical Spa is proud to offer the latest hair removal technology by using the Lumenis M22 for patients of varying hair types. We encourage you to ask us about our in-house laser hair removal technology and how it differs from other lasers during your consultation.
