Need To Know About Laser Hair Removal

laser hair removal

Given up hope of waxing, shaving, and plucking? Having hairless, glowing, soft skin is every woman’s dream, but these hair-eliminating methods take a toll on your skin, inflict a lot of pain and require repetition.

However, these aren’t the only options. You can permanently say goodbye to body hair.

Laser hair removal is an easy and permanent solution to prevent hair growth. It uses high-tech laser technology to stop blood supply to the hair follicles deep within your skin. This prevents hair growth and allows you to have fuzz-free skin.

Thinking of getting a laser hair removal treatment? Here is what you need to know about the process.

Types of laser

There are various types of laser available in the market, but not all of them can be used for skin treatments. Here are some of the popular lasers used in skin and hair treatments.

Diode laser is effective for both, dark and light, skin type and is commonly used in many procedures. Alexandrite laser is the most effective for treating large areas of the body and provides better results, when used on light to olive skin tone. Nd:YAG laser is a type of long-pulse laser, which shows remarkable results for all skin-types.

Which areas should be treated?

Some areas show better results of laser treatment than others. Mostly because the impact of laser is concentrated on small areas, this completely depletes the hair follicles and prevents hair growth. Laser hair removal shows best results when performed on lip, chin, underarm, or bikini area.

What should thick-haired people do?

Stubborn hair is hard to wax or pluck. They test your patience and cause excruciating pain during the removal process. However, if you’re getting thick hair lasered, you will experience ease and convenience.

Laser is attracted to pigmentation and color found in the hair follicles. Detecting thin or light-coloured hair is quite difficult for the laser; however, removing thick hair is convenient and easily done.

Stop medication

Since you’re dealing with a type of light (laser), stop consuming any sort of medication that contains photosensitive content. Bear in mind, most of the antibiotics are photosensitive; stop your medication one week prior to the treatment.

Frequency of treatment

Discontinuing the blood supply to the hair follicles can’t be done in one treatment; you need to schedule 6 to 8 treatments to fully remove hair. The frequency of treatment also varies according to the growth rate of your hair, so don’t lose hope, if your treatment is taking long to show results.

Shave it all

STOP waxing, bleaching, or plucking the area of treatment, one month prior to your session and regularly shave off any hair growth in between sessions. Shaving facilitates laser penetration and speeds up the removal process.

Once you have achieved your peach-fuss free skin, apply sunscreen to prevent sun damage.
