The Truth About Laser Hair Removal
If you’re thinking of getting laser hair removal, remember to do your research before you give in to the glorious promises of permanent hair removal. When you learn more about the subject of laser hair removal, you can determine whether or not the procedure is suitable for your skin. Unlike waxing, threading, and shaving, laser hair removal is more costly. At the same time, the results of this hair removal method can have unique impacts on different body types.
To ensure you make the right choices and follow the correct course of action before and after getting laser treatment, the experts at Body Face Image Solutions have explained certain truths about laser hair removal.
1. Laser hair removal is not instant
After the procedure, your hair will not fall out immediately. It takes a couple of weeks for the hair in the treated areas to fall out. So, please give it a couple of days for the procedure to show results. For noticeable hair removal, it takes twelve to fourteen sessions in total depending on your skin and hair type.
2. Attend regular laser treatment appointments
As laser hair removal requires multiple sessions, it is vital to visit your treatment clinic as per your specialist’s request. Unfortunately, many people don’t think that it’s essential to come in during the specified monthly schedule, which reduces the success of their treatment.
3. Avoid the sun and certain antibiotics
When getting laser hair removal, avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight before and after the treatment. Similarly, tanners should be avoided during the course of your laser treatments. Avoid tanning beds or laying out in the sun for at least two weeks before and after your laser treatments. Also, avoid taking antibiotics during the procedure to avoid making your skin over sensitive. Specific medication can cause the laser to burn you, so please tell your practitioner if you are on any medications, or have been in the past two weeks.
4. Adhere to the guidelines
Another common practice is to buy laser hair removal products and not adhere to the contingencies that make it work. This not only results in unsuccessful laser hair removal but also burns and skin damage. If you have not used laser hair removal treatments before please avoid buying “at home” products. Instead, speak to a professional and ask them about the procedure to see what steps you should take to get the most out of this treatment and avoid hurting your skin.
