Unwanted hair can be significantly reduced by a series of laser hair removal treatments. At the Beautiful Faces 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.

"Totally amazing experience - I was anxious to get the turkey waddle under my chin fixed as well as the bags under my eyes. However I was not willing to have a surgical procedure. Dr Ho performed facetite on my neck and got rid of my bags on my lower eyelids. It was done in the office and was relatively pain free. Dr Ho is extremely professional and I was so happy with the results. Sandra his coordinator walked me..."- E. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2018

"Smart Lipo of the Neck/chin - When Kybella didn't work, I turned to Dr. Ho for Smart Lipo of the chin/neck area. If I had the choice, I would have had the surgery again in a heartbeat. Recovery was comfortable and I was up and moving in no time! I resumed work a couple of days later! I'm so thrilled with my results thus far!!!!!"- J. / RealSelf / May 02, 2017
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 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.
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.
