Five Tips To Get The Most Out Of Laser Treatment
Are you tired of shaving and waxing to keep your body smooth and stunning? If you are, laser hair removal may be the alternative you need as it offers more permanent results. Laser treatments can remove coarse dark hair on the face, legs, arms, underarms, and the bikini area. The procedure uses a laser to burn hair follicles, which effectively reduces the growth of unwanted hair.
However, for successful results, you’ll need to undergo several treatments, which can be costly. At the same time, you need to determine if the procedure you choose is effective and safe for your hair and skin type to avoid wasting time and money.
For a laser procedure to be as effective as possible, preparation is a must, and to help you get the most out of laser treatment, Body Face Image Solutions has listed five tips to help you out.
Tip #1: Avoid exposure to sunlight
While seeking or going through any laser treatments, prepare to stay out of the sun for at least two weeks before the procedure, and two weeks after treatment to prevent burns. Sunlight makes the skin sensitive to heat, and laser procedures on sensitive skin can cause hyper-pigmentation, burns, and scarring.
Tip #2: Check if your medications affect your ability to get laser treatment
Make sure all of the medicines you are on, or going to be on are safe for sun and laser exposure to reduce any counter interactions to laser treatments. If the medications you are taking make your skin sensitive, you need to consult your doctor to determine if you can still go through with a laser treatment.
Tip #3: Prepare for a test spot
When choosing a laser treatment, understand that a ‘test spot’ must be done twenty-four hours before the actual treatment as per the guidelines of state law. So, make sure you plan your schedule accordingly.
Tip #4: Understand that laser treatments are not effective on all hair types
While all laser services are safe for all skin types, they are not necessarily effective on some hair types. For example, red and grey hair cannot be seen or picked up by the laser, and this often leads to no results.
Tip #5: Know that IPL laser treatments have limitations
When choosing an IPL (intense pulsed light) laser treatment, understand that it can only be focused on redness or brown spots in one setting, not both. As a result, make sure to speak to an expert before you choose a laser procedure.
