Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Long-lasting Results: Unlike temporary methods such as shaving or waxing, laser hair removal provides long-lasting results. After a series of sessions, many individuals experience permanent reduction in hair growth in the treated areas.

Precision Targeting: Laser technology allows for precise targeting of specific areas, ensuring that only hair follicles are affected while leaving surrounding skin undamaged. This precision makes laser hair removal suitable for even delicate areas like the face and bikini line.

Reduced Ingrown Hairs: Unlike shaving or waxing, which can lead to ingrown hairs and irritation, laser hair removal reduces the occurrence of ingrown hairs. By targeting the hair follicle directly, it helps to prevent hair from growing back inwards.

Cost-effectiveness: While the upfront cost of laser hair removal may seem higher compared to other methods, it can be more cost-effective in the long run. With permanent reduction in hair growth, individuals can save money on razors, waxing appointments, and depilatory creams over time.

Customizable Treatment: Laser hair removal treatments can be customized to suit individual needs and preferences. From adjusting the intensity of the laser to targeting specific areas, treatments can be tailored to address different skin types and hair colors.

What to Expect - Laser Hair Removal Process 

In preparation for your first laser hair removal session, it is important to avoid waxing or plucking hair for four to six weeks before treatment. These activities temporarily remove hair follicles and roots, which are the targets during laser treatment. Shaving is acceptable, as it cuts the hair and leaves hair follicles intact.

Within 24 hours before treatment, shaving is recommended so the laser can more easily locate follicles. Hair stubble can be burned during the laser process and cause increased discomfort.

Just before the laser procedure, you may be given the option to receive topical anesthetic to help reduce any discomfort during the treatment. This is applied 20-30 minutes before the laser procedure and is recommended for more sensitive areas such as the bikini line and underarm.

You will be typically given eye protection, and the laser equipment settings will be adjusted according to skin location, thickness, and color. Lastly, a cold gel may be applied, or a special cooling device will be used to protect the outer skin and minimize side effects.

During the laser process, pulses of light will be given in the treatment area and slight discomfort may be felt. This has been described as a warm pinprick or light rubber band snapping against the skin.

The first treatment usually causes the most sensation compared to subsequent treatments, and the laser process varies from a few minutes to an hour depending on the treatment area. Once the procedure is complete, you may be given lotion, anti-inflammatory cream, or ice packs to ease any discomfort.
