Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the country (webMD). It’s important that you take the time to find a properly trained doctor or technician to perform your treatment. If done improperly, this procedure does carry the risk of scarring.
For several weeks prior to the procedure, you will need to stop shaving, tweezing or waxing. This is because the laser targets the root of each hair, which waxing and tweezing temporarily removes. Shaving must be avoided so that the hair is of an appropriate length for the laser to target.
Winter is an ideal time to begin laser treatments because patients must avoid sun exposure before and after treatment. Since you would rather spend the summer months hanging by the pool, winter is the most convenient time to undergo treatment.
Aftercare and Side Effects
Following a laser session the treatment area will look and feel as though it has been sunburned. You can use cooling packs and lotions to help reduce tenderness and care to avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight (avoid tanning beds). With laser hair removal the next month following each session, treated hair will fall out. Slowly, you will see new hair growth, but this will become less and less after each treatment and hair will become finer and more sparse. Same is true for other treatment areas, each session you will see a gradual result (fading of tattoos and stretch marks) until your desired result is reached.
The sooner you schedule a consultation, the quicker you’ll be on your way to a smoother more confident you!
