Unwanted hair can be significantly reduced by a series of laser hair removal treatments. At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina, and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho 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.
"Sarah was thorough, professional and kind. The atmosphere is relaxing and the med spa was spotless."- S.S. / Google / Nov 01, 2019
"Excellent Results from my Lower Blepharoplasty - I was referred to Dr. Ho by my daughter who also had the same procedure. My procedure was done on 9/2020. I am so pleased with my results and have had many complements from my friends saying I look younger and look refreshed. Dr. Ho and his staff are very personal and professional. I was so impressed with the follow up as well as the surgery. He did have to do a small procedure to take care of some sagging under my eyes which was quite successful. He did not charge for the additional procedure. Again, I strongly recommend him for any plastic surgery you may have."- E. / RealSelf / Oct 14, 2021
"Beyond Impressed with Dr. Vu Ho!!! - I was beyond impressed with Dr. Vu Ho and his entire staff!! From the minute I walked in the door, everyone was extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Ho carefully listened to my concerns, and not only suggested, but educated me as to which treatments would provide the very best results. I was looking for something non invasive and with very little down time, and he provided this option for me. My areas of concern were the fine lines and wrinkles on my face, as well as sagging skin on my neck. Dr. Ho recommend a combination of Morpheus8 skin tightening as well as PDO threads. My hopes and expectations were by far exceeded, as I couldn’t be happier with the smoothing, tightening and overall appearance of my skin. I am new to Texas, and as a healthcare worker with many years in plastic surgery, I was so impressed with how Dr. Ho is ahead of the curve on offering the latest and best technology. I wouldn’t go to anyone else after my experience at Beyond Beautiful!!!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2021
"Dr Vu Ho at Beyond Beautiful is amazing. I had a minor procedure done and felt no pain. He’s very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. His staff is really nice and friendly."- D.T. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2021
"Chin Finally Symmetrical! - I had the best experience with Dr. Wu Ho. This was my 3rd time getting chin surgery and finally the last one. I’m so happy to be done with this chin journey. I had a chin implant put in 7 years ago by a surgeon in Buenos Aires which I had removed a year later from it moving out of place. (Lesson learned) I had scar tissue left over which made my chin look asymmetrical. People only noticed once I pointed it out (like most of our flaws). I dealt with this for years and couldn’t take photos from straight on. I’m so happy to finally have a symmetrical chin & can wear my hair down the middle again. I did this procedure under local anesthesia & pronox (not for the weak). I didn’t have any pain during the hourlong procedure but I think I’d just rather be asleep & unaware of surgery happening. I only took the prescribed painkillers for the first day. Healing was quick. Scar looks great 3 months later. The staff are super friendly and professional and i felt like I was under great care. They spent plenty of time answering my questions and making me feel safe. I highly recommend Dr Ho & his team! I got a facial from their Esthetitian the week after surgery once my bandage came off which felt like pure heaven & a month later some cheekbone filler which turned out great!"- A. / RealSelf / Aug 31, 2021
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
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.
