What You Should Know About Laser Hair Removal

Posted on March 31, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Plucking, shaving and waxing are activities almost no one enjoys. Get rid of unwanted hair permanently with laser hair removal. 

How It Works

The technician focuses high-intensity laser beam on the unwanted hair. Immediately after the laser beam is applied you’re treated with a cooling device for skin protection. This dual system ensures that only the hair and its follicle are removed, and side effects are minimal.

Lasers can remove hair on virtually any part of the body. It’s also an effective way to prevent ingrown hairs.

Treatment Sessions

You’ll require several sessions to eradicate your unwanted hair. That’s because the laser removes hair only when it is in a growth phase. The number of sessions necessary for complete laser hair removal depends on the individual, but one should expect between four and seven treatments on average.

Preparing for Treatment

A month before your first appointment, please do not:

  • Bleach
  • Pluck
  • Wax.

Two weeks prior to your initial session, please stay out of the sun. Follow this protocol for the rest of your treatments.

Post-treatment Care

After your sessions, you might experience some minor swelling or redness which resolve quickly on their own. Please avoid sunbathing or indoor tanning for the next couple of weeks.
