Unwanted hair growth is one of the top cosmetic concerns on the planet, which is why laser hair removal will always be a top aesthetic treatment. What woman doesn’t crave long-lasting freedom from unsightly stubble and ingrown hairs, especially on the bikini line?
There is one caveat, however—not all laser hair removal treatments are created equal! To get the most out of your laser hair removal sessions, here are some important tips:
Plan ahead and be patient.
Laser hair removal is rarely a one-and-done treatment. Most people need to undergo a series of at least five treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve their goals. We will help you determine your exact course of treatment during your personal consultation. The number of treatments you need will depend on your treatment areas, amount of hair, and your personal goals.
Don’t let your hair grow out.
While it’s true that laser hair removal needs your hair roots to be intact, this doesn’t mean that you should grow your hair out during treatment. Shaving your treatment areas throughout your treatment regimen will help to keep your hair follicles in the active stage, and this is crucial because laser hair removal only works on active hair follicles. The other benefit to shaving is that lasers can’t locate hair roots through long hair. Lasers need short stubble to precisely target your hair roots.
Avoid fake tanners, lotions, perfumes, creams…
Even a fake tan is a major no-no. Your skin needs to be clean and bare. Any lotions or discoloration can interfere with the laser and cause complications.
Choose your provider carefully.
Ask for credentials before making your appointment. How many years of experience does the laser technician have? Is your provider a seasoned pro who has administered hundreds of successful treatments? Laser hair removal is a serious technology that requires advanced training and supervision from a physician.
