When it comes to unwanted body hair, you’re probably tired of shaving. You’ve been battling with razor burn and cuts on your legs for years, and you’re tired of plucking your eyebrows with tweezers, waxing the skin above your lip, and eying those hairs that crop up on your chin. It’s time to look for a more permanent solution. Laser hair removal can make your life easier by getting rid of unwanted hair in a simple procedure. Forget about the hassle of shaving and plucking – laser hair removal may be the solution you need.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
If you don’t want to fight with unwanted hair anymore, laser hair removal is a practical solution. It involves the use of a concentrated beam of laser light. The light is directed at the hair follicles in the area that you want treated. The follicle is disabled, and hair is eliminated during the procedure. After several procedures, the hair follicles can be permanently destroyed, eliminating your unwanted hair for good. Sessions take less than an hour and will not cause damage to the skin. You can use laser hair removal for your legs, hair on your back, the bikini area, under your arms, and on your face. One or multiple areas can be treated in one session, depending on your preference.
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
Before you go for a laser hair removal session, it is a good idea to take care of your skin. Avoid tanning and sun exposure. You should not pluck or wax before the procedure. Shaving is recommended the day before treatment. The hair needs to be stubble short. The laser will be adjusted to suit your specific needs, taking into account the location that will be treated and your skin color. Your skin will be protected from potential damage from the laser light. A topical numbing cream is applied to the area 30 minutes prior to the treatment and cooling devices and gels are typically used for added comfort. You will need to space treatments four to six weeks apart until your hair loss results are achieved.
Recovery from Laser Hair Removal
For one to two days after your treatment session, you may feel as though you have a sunburn. You can use ice packs, damp cloths, and moisturizers to ease any discomfort. You should wear sunscreen to protect your skin. You will notice the hair falling out of treated areas over the course of the next month after treatment, which is normal.
