It is likely that you have heard about the many benefits that come from laser hair removal treatments. It is a semi-permanent treatment that can help you to say goodbye to unwanted hair on your legs, back, chest, upper lip, and underarms. Before you start your treatment sessions, here are some things that you should know.
How Does the Treatment Work?
It is good for you to understand how this treatment works in order for you to get the best results and for you to have realistic expectations. Different techniques are used depending on the color of your skin and hair. If you have darker skin, a concentrated beam of light is going to be directed at the hair follicles in the area where you would like to remove the hair. The light is attracted to the blood in the hair follicles. The energy from the light will disable the hair follicles. When an individual who has lighter skin has the treatment performed, the light is attracted to the darker pigment in the hair follicles. The light will also disable the hair follicles in this situation.
Since the goal of laser hair removal is to disable the hair follicles, this means that the roots of the hairs need to be in place when the treatment is performed. In order for you to get that the best results from your treatment, you need to avoid plucking and waxing the hair in the weeks before your treatment. You also want to avoid using hair removal creams. You can, however, shave away the unwanted hair up until the day before your treatment.
Have Realistic Expectations
It is true that individuals who undergo laser hair removal can expect to see phenomenal results. However, it is not realistic to think that these results are going to be seen overnight. It takes more than one session in order to get long-lasting results. When you visit us for your initial consultation, we are going to come up with a complete treatment plan. In most cases, individuals need to visit our office at least six times in order to get long-lasting results.
