If you’re considering laser hair removal, consider this: It’s not always a sure thing.  The results can be great, but if you’re treated with the wrong laser or if it’s on the wrong setting, you won’t get the maximum hair reduction (there’s no such thing as total removal).  Wherever you go—a derm, a med spa—be sure to ask questions before.
What patients should know
  • These procedures may be offered in informal settings such as shopping malls, spas and walk-in clinics, but it’s important for patients to choose an experienced health care provider. Treatments should be performed by or under the direct supervision of a dermatologist or other physician who has appropriate training and expertise.
  • In general, 6 or more treatments are required to achieve permanent hair growth reduction.
  • Darker hair responds best to laser hair removal.
  • Lighter-colored hair is least responsive, but topical medications can be used in an effort to increase effectiveness.
  • Patients seeking laser hair removal are advised to avoid tanning or sunless tanners and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen for up to six weeks prior to treatment.

Expected results

  • The percentage of hairs removed per session varies by location on the body, with thinner-skinned areas (e.g., armpits and bikini area) generally responding better than thick-skinned areas (e.g., back and chin).
  • About 10 percent to 25 percent reduction in hair growth can be expected with each treatment.
  • Treatments are repeated every four to eight weeks.
  • The hair that regrows following treatment tends to be lighter and finer in texture.
  • Patients are instructed to avoid sun exposure and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or higher following the procedure.

Many women, who are thinking about having laser hair removal treatments, wonder when the best time would be to start their treatment course.
Whilst laser hair removal can be successful at any time of the year, the cooler autumn and winter months are generally the best times to book an appointment for treatment because the risk of sun damage tends to be a little lower during these seasons than in the likes of spring and summer.
We often have to postpone or cancel patient treatments due to sun damage – or at least the thread of sun damage – if patients are, or are planning to go on holiday or sunbathe.
The winter months bring cooler temperatures and fewer hours of sunlight meaning people tend to cover up with their winter woollies. The cold, dark days also mean that people stay indoors a little more, which means there is less chance of them getting exposed to the sun.
We continually campaign throughout the year about the importance of caring for your skin and the damage that exposure to the sun can cause. During the summer months, the team at Dr. Bishara’s office have to reschedule many appointments for clients who have just returned from their summer holiday and have tanned skin. We do this to ensure the safety of their clients. If we were to treat a client using a laser when their skin is sun damaged, patients could be left with severe burns and scars from the treatment.
So why not make the most of laser treatments this winter? Try laser hair removal treatments courses, which gives you the opportunity to say good-bye to waxing and shaving.
So the moral of the story is; winter is a great time to get laser hair removal done-and just think of all the extra time you’ll have to spend at the beach when it is warm out. For more information check out for information on starting the hair removal process now.

So if you are planning to under go this type of treatment NOW would be the best time to schedule your appointment.  Please call us for more information at (817) 473-2120 or email
