Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the legs, face, chin, back, arm, bikini line, underarm, and other areas. Benefits of laser hair removal include:

Precision. Lasers can target dark, coarse hairs, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and treats many hairs at the same time. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute while large areas, such as the legs take up to an hour.

Predictability. Most patients experience permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven months.

Painless. Laser treatment is a painless procedure compared to other hair removal methods like tweezing and waxing. The process covers a large area, so you don’t need to sit for long.

Safe and effective. Laser methods have been tried and tested over the last decade. The technique is efficient and has no side effects. It’s approved as low-risk treatment which is extremely useful for any body area or skin.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser treatment is a medical procedure that requires training to perform. Before getting the process done, you should thoroughly check the qualifications of the technician or doctor performing the procedure.

If you are planning to try laser hair removal, you should avoid waxing, electrolysis, and plucking for six weeks before treatment since the laser hair removal targets the hair roots, which are temporarily removed by plucking and waxing.

It would be best if you avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

The doctors will press a hand laser into the skin. Depending on the type of laser, a cold gel might be used to protect your skin and lessen the risk of the side effects. When the doctor activates the laser, the beams will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The heat from then laser beams damages the hair follicles, which prevents hair growth.

After the Procedure

You might notice swelling and redness for the first few hours after laser hair removal. Apply ice to the treated area to reduce any discomfort. If you have a skin reaction after laser hair removal, the doctor may apply a steroid cream to the affected area. After laser hair removal, avoid sunlight and don't use a tanning bed for about six weeks or as directed by your doctor.

With today’s advanced laser technologies, laser hair removal works on any skin type and color.  It is most effective on dark hair as opposed to light blonde or white hair.
