Unwanted body or facial hair can be time-consuming and costly to get rid of. Time and money spent shaving, tweezing, epilation, or waxing can make your skin irritated, only to have the hair grow back soon after. All of these factors can cause unnecessary stress over unwanted hair, making the need for a long-term solution: laser hair removal.

At Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics, laser hair removal in Zachary permanently reduces hair on the face or body by damaging the hair follicle and the hair’s ability to grow. The laser technology behind this treatment targets the melanin, or pigment, of the hair to zap the hair follicle at the source. Laser hair removal can work on many body zones, and patients love the long-term effects and smooth skin from this treatment.

Why Try Laser Hair Removal in Zachary?

Long-Term Results

Simply put, laser hair removal is the most effective hair removal technique. You’ll enjoy unwanted body hair changing from a nuisance to an afterthought.

Less Skin Irritation

Many forms of hair removal come with skin irritation like razor burn, bumps, and itchiness as your hair regrows, especially shaving. Though you may experience some sensitivity right after treatment, once the hair follicles can no longer grow hair, there is virtually no irritation.

Increased Confidence

For some, unwanted body hair makes them feel more self-conscious in certain types of clothing. Laser hair removal in Zachary can help you feel carefree and confident in your skin.

WHAT TO EXPECT The Laser Hair Removal Process

Laser Hair Removal


Before your laser hair removal in Zachary, you’ll meet with a Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics provider for a consultation. We will assess if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. Certain skin and hair colors do not respond well to laser hair removal, so it’s important to ensure that you are an ideal candidate before the treatment. Once we determine that you are a candidate for laser hair removal, we will determine how many treatment sessions you’ll need based on your desired results.


Laser Hair Removal Treatments

For your laser hair removal treatments, your laser specialist will give you protective eyewear and ensure you are comfortable before beginning. Then, they will start and run the handpiece over the treatment area(s). You will feel a heat and tolerable snapping sensation from the laser, similar to a rubber band. How long the procedure takes depends on the size and amount of treatment areas.


Next Steps

After your laser hair removal session at Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics, your provider will explain the aftercare protocol. A series of laser hair removal treatments produce the best results, so we will also schedule your next session.

PRE-TREATMENT Pre-Care Instructions

Before Laser Hair Removal in Zachary, Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics Recommends:

Laser Hair Removal

Before Your Appointment

Avoid excessive sun exposure, tanning, and other activities or products that increase photosensitivity. You should also shave or clip 24 to 48 hours before your appointment. This is to ensure the laser can easily target the hair follicle, not the hair itself.

Clean Your Skin

Come to your appointment with clean bare skin without oils, creams, or lotions.


Consult with your doctor about any medications that may interact with laser hair removal.

POST TREATMENT Post-Care Instructions

Following Laser Hair Removal in Zachary, Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics Recommends:

Laser Hair Removal

Skin Protection

Do not shave, exfoliate, or do anything else abrasive to your skin, as it is sensitive immediately after treatment. Do not use products that increase photosensitivity.

UV Protection

Protect your skin with SPF and avoid excess sun exposure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser hair removal is safe if you go to a qualified physician provider with the best technology, experience and professional care.

How permanent laser hair removal is for you depends on your hair’s density, growth cycle, and other factors. Most hairs will be permanently affected, but you may need a yearly touch-up session for any new hair growth. Hair growth after laser hair removal is usually less dense, finer, and lighter in color.

For most people, laser hair removal pain is minimal, especially when compared to other hair removal treatments like waxing. Many describe the feeling as the quick snapping sensation of a rubber band against the skin.

Whether it is worth getting laser hair removal depends on your priorities. For many, unwanted body hair takes up a lot of time and energy, and methods like shaving can cause ongoing skin irritation, while waxing is painful and costly. While the cost of laser hair removal is an investment, many patients find that getting laser hair removal is worth it for the long-term results and benefits.
