Medical lasers are used in almost every field of medicine and can improve patient outcomes. Laser treatments are often used for skin rejuvenation, hair removal and other procedures. Texas Dermatology offers laser treatments for men and women in San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What Are Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments are outpatient procedures that we offer in our office to address cosmetic concerns, such as excess hair, visible vein discoloration and aged skin. Lasers work by targeting certain types of tissues and gently heating those tissues to produce a specific response.
For laser hair removal, light energy is absorbed only by the hair follicle to disrupt the hair growth cycle. Skin rejuvenation with laser technology removes damaged skin cells and stimulates new cell development. Our laser vein treatments destroy spider veins.
How Much Do Laser Treatments Cost?
Factors that affect the cost of your laser treatments are:
- Type of condition
- Size of the treatment area
- Number of sessions needed
We will explain the costs that are associated with your treatment plan after your consultation appointment. If you are interested in financing, we accept CareCredit®, and you can apply before the consultation.

How Long Do the Results of Laser Treatments Last?
For our laser hair removal treatments, you will need several sessions for optimum results. Many patients have permanent hair removal, but this does vary based on the individual. The results of laser skin rejuvenation can last for years, depending on your age, skin characteristics, lifestyle, and other factors. Laser vein treatment permanently destroys damaged veins. Maintenance treatments may be required as new veins form and multiple sessions are often required for optimum results.
Do Laser Treatments Hurt?
We understand that the procedure may sound intimidating, but it is quite comfortable. The laser light is applied in very short bursts, and each burst may feel like a pinch on your skin. This lasts for a few seconds. Topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize this sensation and provide additional comfort during the procedure. After the treatment, your skin may feel sensitive, like when you have a mild sunburn. The redness and sensitivity typically last for a few days.
