Whether it be through shaving, depilation, or epilation, removal of body hair can be a daunting task that has to be done constantly. There is a way to remove body hair permanently so constant maintaining of a hairless body is no longer time-consuming. It is laser hair removal that permanently damages the follicles so you don’t have to worry about the more traditional methods of hair removal.
The Benefit of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can be used to remove hair all over the body including the face, bikini line, and underarms. Because the laser only works on hair, the skin surrounding the hair follicles is left undamaged. It is a treatment that is relatively fast since a single pulse of the laser can remove multiple hairs in a single area at a time. Small places of hair removal, like the upper lip area, can take less than a minute to be treated. It does take a couple of sessions to make sure that all the growing hairs are removed.
The laser hair treatment is extremely effective. Clients lose their hair after three to seven sessions of hair treatment. The darker the hair, the faster the results are. People who usually suffer from ingrown hairs after waxing will no longer have to experience the pain. Razor burns and irritation to the skin will no longer be a problem after removing unwanted hair.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
To prepare for the treatment it is best to schedule a consultation with our experienced team to determine if and what type of laser hair treatment is suitable for you. Some other tips to follow are:
- Stay out of the sun. If you need to go out into the sun up to six weeks before treatment, make sure you wear a high-factor protection sunscreen.
- Avoid hair removing. At least four weeks before the treatment, all waxing, plucking, and electrolysis should be stopped.
- Shave the area to be treated. Shaving is recommended on the day before the treatment. The hairs treated should be short so the long hairs do not burn the skin.
