What’s better than running your hand across smooth skin? It’s easier now than ever to get rid of that unwanted hair with laser hair removal by using an intense, pulsating light. It’s an easy procedure, however it is usually done through multiple visits. The laser needs to be applied to the hair follicle when your hair is on its first stage of growth because it’s the only time it can be effectively treated.
Laser hair removal is done by men and women who want more long-term hair removal results and are tired of waxing and shaving which can cause skin irritation, cuts and even infections. It’s now available regardless of skin colour thanks to technological advancements.
In most cases, we recommend shaving about 2-3 days before the treatment. This ensures your skin is not irritated when you visit. In some cases, we might recommend your simply trim your hair instead of shaving it completely. You should avoid plucking your hair because it removes the hair follicle and actually hinders the laser hair removal process.
During Laser Hair Treatment
We give you appropriate protection for your eyes from the laser. Ultasonic gel is then applied to the treatment area. The treatment is fairly quick for a small area like a lip or a palm, but for larger areas like legs, it can take up to an hour.
We will give you guidelines to follow after the treatment. Sun protection and skin care are recommended. Don’t go sunbathing for a couple of weeks after the treatment. You will have to avoid irritating your skin with products with high acidity or alcohol in them.
What to Expect After Laser Hair Treatment
Laser hair removal results may vary from one person to another, depending on hair thickness and skin tone. Laser hair removal isn’t a quick fix. The hair won’t disappear instantly after the first treatment. It gradually falls out in the next few weeks, and requires roughly four to ten visits to be fully eradicated. Additionally, visits have to be scheduled about four to eight weeks apart for your safety, and the number of visits may depend on your own skin type and hair growth. But if you’re willing to be patient and stick with it, you’ll wind up with long-lasting, potentially permanent results.
The treatment is effective for most people in the long-term especially when it is done by a specialist with the best laser hair removal machines available today.
