Get Smooth and Silky by Summer With Laser Hair Removal

It may be February, but the sun is never far away here in Texas. With warmer weather right around the corner, unwanted facial and body hair can be embarrassing — especially during the Texas summers when you want to let your skin shine! Covering up isn’t always practical, and with traditional solutions like waxing, plucking, shaving, and creams, hair grows back faster than you’d like. 

At Tim Martin M.D. in Abilene, Texas, Tim Martin, MD, and our entire team are dedicated to promoting your overall wellness using a holistic approach that focuses on preventive medicine and a healthy lifestyle. Our commitment to your wellness includes helping you feel good about the skin you’re in!

To help you achieve your goals, Dr. Martin and our team offer laser hair removal as part of our full line of aesthetic services. Read on to learn how you can get smooth and silky by summer with laser hair removal! 

What’s involved with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a quick and easy way to permanently reduce unwanted face or body hair. Using cutting-edge laser technology, Dr. Martin or your care provider targets the cells of protein at the root of your follicles, which provide the nutrients that support hair growth. Dr. Martin and our other care providers use lasers on these cells to reduce hair growth without damaging your skin. The result? Skin that stays smooth, silky, and hair-free for longer.   

What areas does laser hair removal treat?

Dr. Martin or your care provider meets with you to discuss your hair removal goals and develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Laser hair removal can safely treat most areas of the body, including your face, underarms, arms and legs, back, bikini area, chest, and shoulders. With laser hair removal at Tim Martin M.D., you’ll get the smooth, silky skin you want before summer arrives!  

How long do laser hair removal treatments take? 

How long treatments take and how many treatments you need varies based on the area of your body you’re having treated, how much hair you removal is required, and your hair and skin color. For example, although the upper lip may only require one to two minutes, a large treatment area, like the back, can take up to an hour. Dr. Martin or another team member develops a treatment plan that meets your unique needs. 

Is laser hair removal painful?

Everyone is different, and your response depends on your sensitivity and tolerance. Most of our patients find laser hair removal to be painless. Depending on the area being treated, some describe a tingling or tickling sensation, while others compare it to the feeling of a rubber band snapping. Sometimes your skin can be slightly irritated for a short period after treatment, but this typically resolves quickly.
