Overview

Laser Hair Removal in Houston, TX

Laser hair removal works by means of exposing areas of the skin to gentle pulses of laser light beams that permanently destroy hair follicles at the root. The procedure had been in experimental use for about twenty years before it became commercially available in 1995.

In the greater Houston area, Dr. Olga Bachilo at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa provides laser hair removal treatments using the renowned Splendor X laser system.

Splendor X

Laser Hair Removal with Splendor X

The Splendor X provides a wide variety of hair removal procedures that achieve a rapid rate of removal by combining a high rate of fluency, large spot size, and high repetition rate. The system also uses a unique square spot shape that eliminates such problems as hot spots caused by overlapping the same area, and ensuring a more uniform coverage of the treatment area.

The Splendor X technology also allows the use of the laser on all skin tones, a benefit that many other laser treatments lack. Its unique BLEND X technology allows your doctor or provider to achieve customized treatment options for patients of varying skin and hair types because the machine can be customized to treat different individuals.

IPL Hair Removal: Venus Versa

OVERVIEW

The Benefits of IPL Hair Removal Technology

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology that works by directing a wavelength of light into the skin, which targets pigment or color, is then absorbed by the pigment, and quickly heats and kills growing hair follicles. Hair removal using IPL technology is sometimes referred to as photoepilation.

IPL systems use the same technological principle as lasers, by directing light energy into chromophores, or light-absorbing components, in hair or skin cells. The pulsed light is converted to heat, which kills living cells in the target area, in this case in living hair follicles. IPL systems differ from laser treatments in that IPL delivers multiple wavelengths (or a full spectrum of color) in each pulse, instead of a single wavelength as transmitted by lasers. Most IPL treatment systems utilize filters to customize the energy output to more effectively treat specific areas, improving penetration, and enabling the treatment to target specific chromophores.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Venus Versa™ Hair Removal Procedure

The Venus Versa™ applies broad-spectrum light energy to the skin’s surface, targeting melanin. This energy penetrates the skin until it encounters the bulb or root of the hair shaft, in which the greatest concentration of melanin is typically found. As the bulb absorbs the light, it becomes heated to the point of destroying the living hair follicle.

IPL hair removal treatments must be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks because each treatment can only target the hair follicles that are actively growing at any given time.  Since not all hair follicles are active simultaneously, hair follicles not treated in one treatment may be treated in a later treatment once they become active. Typically, about 6–8 treatments will be required to remove the majority of visible hair follicles in any region.  Over time, IPL treatments will permanently destroy a large quantity of hair follicles, reducing the total number of hairs in the treatment area. IPL treatments just as other laser technologies are technically considered a “permanent hair reduction” treatment instead of a “permanent hair removal” treatment, because while they may reduce the quantity of living hair follicles in most areas, these treatments will not achieve a permanent removal of all hair in any area.

Some dermatologic conditions, health concerns, and certain medications may affect a person’s eligibility for IPL hair removal treatments. Most IPL and laser hair removal treatments achieve the best results when used on people with light to medium complexions and coarse, dark hair.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.
cathouston

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I recommend Dr.bachilo!!!

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
