Am I A Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Hair removal with a laser is a gentle process that is suitable for many people. At your consultation, we will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals so we can decide if you should get this treatment. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall, good physical health
What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
The process of laser hair removal may cause mild discomfort, but it's not considered a painful procedure. You may just feel a slight sting as the laser zaps each hair follicle. The Soprano Titanium system is designed to ensure you remain comfortable while getting your laser hair removal treatment by providing a cooling sensation. However, Dr. Cardona can also apply a local anesthetic on your skin prior to the start of the treatment to maximize your comfort. Patients who have been getting waxed often report that laser hair removal results in more comfort than a normal waxing session.
How Is Laser Hair Removal Recovery?
Although this procedure is mostly gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn due to the use of lasers. When you leave our office, you will be able to go back to all normal activities, but you need to refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of a day to let the treated skin heal. At home following your session, we suggest anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs to treat any discomfort.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Is laser hair removal permanent?
An effective treatment, laser hair removal at Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic offers long-lasting improvements. While you can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for a long time, it's considered semi-permanent since some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair will be gone after their treatment plan is finished and if a few hairs are still growing, it is easier to deal with. Additional laser hair removal treatments can be provided to take care of new growth and any stragglers as well.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The process of laser hair removal may cause some discomfort, but it's not too painful. Patients should feel a slight sting as the laser targets and removes the hair follicle. Dr. Francisco Cardona may apply a numbing ointment on your skin before your treatment session. Patients who are used to getting waxed report that laser hair removal is more comfortable compared to getting waxed.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Follicles grow in cycles. While some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are resting. Since each follicle is in a different stage, multiple treatment sessions are needed to target each hair when it is growing. Scheduling your treatments over several weeks at our San Antonio, TX office to help you get better, smoother results.
