Unwanted hair can be significantly reduced by a series of laser hair removal treatments. At Beyond Beautiful in Plano, TX, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho welcomes 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.

"My dark circles are not even noticeable - I have been going to Dr Ho for almost a year now and I am so pleased with my results !! I have done the Ez gel and exosome procedures for my dark circles to opt for a more natural approach before going into fillers and I have seen a drastic improvement ! My dark circles are not even noticeable. I am now in my late twenties and have been seeing a lot of changes in my face, one of which is dark circles. I was extremely insecure about them, all my life I never wore make up and I found I couldn’t leave the house without it. Thanks to Dr Ho I can confidently go out without make up. I am very selective and critical when it comes to procedures and my face. Dr Ho is someone I can trust !!! Thank you Dr Ho !"- E. / RealSelf / Aug 10, 2023

- Hairless skin for weeks or months at a time
- Improved confidence due to smoother skin

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:

- Want to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and/or facial redness

What to Expect
Your medical aesthetician will discuss all medications, products, and procedures to discontinue prior to your laser treatment. A consultation is required two weeks prior to laser hair reduction treatments. 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 ten minutes up to 1 hour, depending on the area(s) being treated.
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 six 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.
