About Laser Hair Removal
As one of the most popular elective treatments in the United States, laser hair removal is an effective way to remove unwanted hair on the body and face. This laser treatment typically leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces longer-lasting results when compared to other common methods, such as waxing and shaving. Plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee at Nuveau Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics in Houston, TX is proud to offer safe laser hair removal treatments for both men and women in common areas, such as the arms, back, legs, face, armpits, and bikini area. Nuveau Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics uses the Sciton platform to perform laser hair removal. This laser treatment is approved by the FDA and damages the hair to minimize the potential for regrowth. Schedule your consultation to learn more about Sciton laser hair removal.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

Laser Hair Removal Ideal Candidates
Hair removal with Sciton is a safe procedure that is suitable for many individuals. During your consultation, we will go over your concerns, needs, and goals so we can decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (waxing, shaving, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in good, overall health
Laser Hair Removal Procedure Technique
At your procedure, you will be asked to lie in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are washed to eliminate dirt, oil, and creams. During the procedure, a technician will smooth out the skin to create a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The energy from the Sciton laser will focus on and kill the follicle, preventing the hair from growing back. Usually, you will need to get 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments are spaced out in order to allow the affected areas time to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the phase of active growth so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art laser hair removing technology we use at Nuveau Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics targets the hair follicle alone, which preserves the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.
What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
While the treatment is mostly gentle, the treated areas of your skin may look like it has a mild sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you are able to resume your daily activities, but you need to avoid exercise or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours to let the treated areas recover. At home following your appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to minimize any mild discomfort.
