Laser Hair Removal Overview
Unwanted hair can be significantly reduced by a series of laser hair removal treatments. At the Beyond Beautiful Texas practice, in Plano, TX, double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, and his staff welcome you in for a complimentary consultation to learn about the procedure and to find out if you’re a candidate. At our office, we use the highly effective Elite MPX laser to target hair virtually anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, back, legs, arms, underarms, and more. The heat from the laser targets the hair follicle to destroy it to prevent hair growth. A number of series will be needed to minimize hair growth.

"I am so happy with the results! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho - August 2019 I choose Dr.Vu Ho for a mid, lower facelift and am so very happy I did! I had visited with Dr. Vu Ho a few yrs prior but had some unforeseen circumstances, and had to wait. He patiently listened to my wishes to tighten up my jowls, and explained what he could do for me. I am so thankful he was my surgeon as I trusted him wholeheartedly!!Look at my before and after especially the side view!! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho :)"- F. / RealSelf / Feb 03, 2020
"I've been seeing Dr Vu Ho for as many years as he's been in Plano. I recently had my eyelids done (upper blepharoplasty) and I am thrilled with my results. Dr Ho listens and answers all questions. He is so skilled and also so down to earth. His surgical assistant Liz is also wonderful.. personable and caring as well as professional. Over the years I have received Botox and fillers from Dr Ho, and I have always been pleased and never had a problem. Tami and Amber at the front desk are always welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are great ambassadors for the practice. I recently had 3 Fractora treatments from Sarah and she is amazing. She is very experienced and was fun, yes, fun, to have as my aesthetician. I also had a hydra facial with her recently and had an excellent result. I hope Dr Ho never leaves Plano as I can't imagine going anywhere else for my facial "upkeep"". Thanks!"- B.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2020
"Immediate results, Dr Ho is amazing! - Dr Ho is amazing! He is honest with his evaluation and sets reasonable expectations on results. I had saggy skin under my chin and he fixed it with threads and Botox. Immediately could see the difference. His staff are super nice as well and the office is nice and clean."- N. / RealSelf / Jan 24, 2020
Laser Hair Removal Ideal Candidates
During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if laser hair removal is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted hair virtually anywhere on the body
- Are tired of waxing, shaving, and tweezing
- Want to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and/or facial redness
- Desire long-lasting results
What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
Your medical aesthetician will discuss all medications, products, and procedures to discontinue prior to your laser treatment. A consultation is required 2 weeks prior to laser hair reduction treatments, and this consult is complimentary! Prior to laser hair removal, the treatment area will be cleaned and prepped. Our laser does use a cooling device to aid in patient comfort. When performed on the face, the patient may be given eyewear to protect the eyes.
The handheld device will be placed on the treatment site for a short period of time to deliver quick pulses of energy before being moved to the next section of skin. A sensation similar to a rubber band being snapped on the skin is felt by those who receive laser hair reduction. Treatment times range from 10 minutes up to 1 hour, depending on the area(s) being treated.
Laser Hair Removal Anticipated Results
Patients will experience 24 hours of downtime where no activity that will raise the body temperature will be able to be performed. All pre- and post-treatment information will be discussed and given to each patient during their initial consultation. Treatment protocols will be assessed after each treatment to ensure you receive the best treatment for your concerns. Since hair growth occurs in phases, multiple treatments will be needed. Treatments will be scheduled anywhere from 2.5 – 10 weeks apart, depending on the area(s) being treated. This will be discussed during your consultation and reassessed at each appointment. Typically, a package of 6 Laser Hair Reduction treatments is recommended.
Patients should expect to see reduced hair growth over the course of treatment. Even though laser hair removal greatly reduces hair growth, hair can grow back. While no procedure is permanent, patients can expect long-term results. Patients should keep in mind that treatments may be needed in the future after the initial series of treatments to prolong the effects.
