Laser Hair Removal Houston
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures performed on both men and women. This cosmetic procedure permanently reduces unwanted hair from key areas of the body including the face, chest, back, neck, arms, legs, and bikini area.
At The Memorial Spa, our aesthetic team will determine the best treatment plan for your needs using our latest technology. We are proud to continuously yield beautiful results to countless patients in Houston, Clear Lake, Webster and surrounding cities in Texas to help you look and feel your best.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Unlike other hair removal procedures like waxing or shaving, laser hair treatments target the follicle where hair growth originates. Specialized lasers are safely used to heat the melanin in the hair follicle, without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue. The laser destroys the source of hair growth, preventing the follicle from continuing to produce additional hair.
How is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
At The Memorial Spa, we use the Forever Bare BBL (BroadBand Light) from Sciton. This innovative technology delivers multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate to safely heat hair follicles quickly and precisely while keeping the skin protected.
One session of laser hair removal takes between 15 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the treatment areas. Complete hair removal typically requires 4 – 6 sessions.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The average cost of laser hair removal in Houston at The Memorial Spa can range between $50 – $400 per session. Cost will vary depending on the body part and the size of the area being treated.
We accept all major credit cards, cryptocurrency, and also offer financing for our patients.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The best candidates for laser hair are those who have undesirable, persistent hair growth. Different laser settings may also be utilized for patients with darker skin tones to avoid tissue injury. We recommend scheduling a consultation with our aesthetic team to determine whether this procedure is right for you

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some common questions from our patients regarding laser hair removal:
- Is it better to wax or undergo laser hair removal?
Although waxing may be easier to perform, this is only a temporary method of removing hair. People who use waxing as their hair removal option usually have to seek out sessions at least once a month. Results from laser hair removal are designed to be long-lasting and permanent.
- Can you get skin cancer from laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal uses non-ionizing irradiation, which means that these lasers are actually safer than sun exposure.
- Is laser hair removal dangerous for my health?
Serious side effects of laser hair removal are not common, and there is no evidence to suggest that there are any negative long-term effects from this treatment. In rare cases, some minor scarring may occur.
- How long do results last?
Results will vary but individuals who have been treated will have permanent hair reduction for years. In some cases, inactive follicles may start to produce new hair due to hormonal changes. However, any additional hair growth is usually sparse and easy to remove with occasional maintenance treatments.
