Lyra-i Laser System for Hair Removal

Safe and effective treatments

Houstonian Medical Associates provides the most advanced FDA cleared laser technology for the reduction and elimination of Pseudo Folliculitis (PF), more commonly known as shaving bumps. These may appear on any commonly shaved area of your body. This advanced technology allows us to treat all ethnic groups and skin types safely and effectively. John Matocha, M.D., M.P.H. supervises all laser treatments for the reduction and elimination of shaving bumps.

Treatments that really work

Laser light is absorbed by pigment in actively growing hair, damaging the hair follicle and thus, hair re-growth is impeded, reducing and eliminating the bumps caused by ingrown hairs. The average patient sees at least a 75% short-term reduction of shaving bumps within 2 weeks after just one or two treatments. One or two annual touch up treatments may be required after completing the initial treatment series.

Average treatment series

Only a portion of your hair is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Therefore, a series of treatments will be required to achieve the long-term improvement you desire. These treatments are spaced approximately 4-12 weeks apart, based on hair growth cycles. Long-term improvement is seen after completing a series of four to six treatments.

Typical treatment sessions

Sessions to treat the neck or bikini area can take as little as 15 minutes, while a full beard and neck may take 45 minutes.
