Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Warren Ellsworth IV at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX performs effective and safe laser hair removal treatments for both women and men in commonly desired areas, like the legs, arms, back, face, chest, and intimate areas.
"Dr. Ellsworth was the first Doctor that told me, he would NEVER put implants in my breast with my history of Breast Cancer. At that time I wanted a quick fix not realizing his extensive background with women like me, or what was even best for me. It didn’t take long to know that he cared a lot about his patients. His hands are definitely a gift from God. I have been on his table 3 plus times, and he is THE BEST PERIOD!!!!! You will know the moment you meet him."- J.D. / Facebook / Oct 18, 2019

Hair removal with a laser is a gentle treatment that is helpful for most people. At your consultation, you will discuss your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have light skin and dark hair
- Are in overall good health
At your procedure, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and creams. During laser hair removal, a technician will smooth out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents it from growing back. Typically, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to get your optimal results. Your sessions will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. The revolutionary Sciton Forever Bare BBL laser technology we use at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery is able to target the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin in the treated area.
What to Expect
While this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn when lasers are used. After your treatment, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or extended time outdoors for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to minimize any discomfort.
