Laser Treatments Q & A

by Thomas McHugh, MD

What Kinds of Laser Procedures Are There?

At McHugh Plastic Surgery, Dr. McHugh offers a broad range of safe and effective laser treatments, including:

  • UltherapyⓇ: Dr. McHugh is proud to be one of the first in the Woodlands area to offer Ultherapy, a FDA-approved skin lifting and tightening procedure specifically designed for the neck, chin, and brow. Ultherapy can also be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your chest using sound wave technology.
  • CellulazeⓇ: Uniquely designed to target hard-to-eliminate cellulite, Cellulaze gives you instant results and is less invasive than liposuction and other surgical fat removing procedures. This one-time laser treatment gives you smoother skin that’s long-lasting.
  • Active FXⓇ/Deep FXⓇ: Using fractional C02 laser technology, Active FX reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin’s texture, and stimulates collagen production. For those with deep lines and creases or acne scarring, Deep FX offers you a solution for skin resurfacing as it penetrates into the deep layers of your skin, stimulating your skin’s natural healing response.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

For patients who are tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing, Dr. McHugh offers laser hair removal. This permanent hair removal procedure uses laser light to increase the temperature of your hair follicles. The heat damages the follicles’ integrity, ultimately destroying it. Once the follicle dies, it stops producing hair.

Laser hair removal is easy, safe, and effective. To ensure you get the optimal results, Dr. McHugh recommends between 5-7 treatments, spaced at least six weeks apart.

Laser hair removal can be safely used on your upper lip, neck, arms, legs, bikini area, back, stomach, and chest.

How Do You Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?

To prepare for laser hair removal, you need to grow your unwanted hair for at least six weeks before your scheduled treatment. It’s also best to limit sun exposure before your treatment, as the lighter your skin is, the better the results

If you’re interested in laser hair removal or another cosmetic laser procedure, turn to an award-winning doctor. Call Dr. McHugh’s office to schedule a consultation or book your appointment easily online today.
