Ark-La-Tex Dermatology has the newest and most innovative multi-wave systems in the industry for permanent hair reduction.
We offer laser hair removal at both our Shreveport and Bossier Locations.
The Excel HR operates on two different wavelengths, 755nm and 1064nm. Incorporating these two wavelengths together gives us the ability
to treat all skin types, fine to coarse hair that is brown or black.
The Xeo ProWave emits infrared light above 770nm and is suitable for skin types 1-4. The Xeo also incorporates the cool glide1064
wavelength to treat darker skin types.
Laser hair removal is not effective on white or grey hair because the laser does not have any pigment (color) to target.
Typically, you will need six to eight treatments. It can vary from patient to patient depending on their skin type and the density of their hair.
A cool ultrasound gel is applied to the area prior to treatment. The handpiece has sapphire contact cooling which allows for comfort and safety
before, during, and after every pulse.
Immediately after the treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually
lasts 2-24 hours and can be soothed with cool gel packs.
The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days following days following treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated
hairs being expelled from the follicle.
At any given time, some of your hair is not in a phase of active growth. Therefore you will need more than one treatment to affect the growth of
all your unwanted hair.
For two-three weeks before your first treatment and throughout the sessions, avoid
We need you to shave as this allows the hair to remain in the follicle for us to target.
Hair grows at different stages and each area will need to be treated at different intervals.
Doing treatments closer together does not increase success. It is better to space treatments farther apart than closer together. Please
adhere to the instructions of your physician or the laser clinician.
*Hormones, diseases, medication can affect treatment outcome
Generally you will need six to eight sessions depending on the area being treated. Some patients are resistant and require a few
additional sessions. Most have excellent results and only require a touch-up once a year.
