If you are tired of tweezing, threading, shaving, waxing, or sugaring to achieve hair-free skin, consider laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a great way to achieve permanent hair reduction and avoid the complications of other forms of hair removal such as ingrown hairs, razor rash,  irritation, itchy regrowth, and more. Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular and more effective than ever thanks to advances in laser technologies. If you are new to laser hair removal treatment, here are some tips to help you prepare for your treatment and optimize your results.

Get The Most Out Of Your Laser Hair Removal With These Tips

Laser hair removal is a painless, effective way to get rid of unwanted hair in a number of areas including legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, chest, ears, face, and back. This treatment works by focusing laser light energy that targets the pigment in the hair follicles of the skin. This light energy is converted to heat that destroys the hair follicle and inhibits hair growth. Because your hair has growth and loss cycles, it will take several laser hair removal treatments to address the growth of all follicles in a treatment area. Most clients achieve at least 80% follicle destruction, but sometimes periodic maintenance treatments are required. To achieve optimal results follow these tips.

Don’t Pluck Or Wax Before Your Appointment

Both of these hair removal methods act by removing the hair and the hair follicle. Since laser hair removal targets the hair follicle for destruction, if you remove the follicle with plucking or waxing before treatment, laser hair removal will be ineffective.

Shave The Day Before Your Treatment

Shaving the excess length of hair prior to your appointment can actually make the laser hair removal treatment more effective. It will give the laser easier access to the follicle because there is less hair above the surface of your skin. Shorter hair will also conduct less heat and make the laser treatment more comfortable.

Stay Out Of The Sun

You should avoid exposing the treatment area to the harmful UV rays of the sun and tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to your appointment. If you have a sunburn, even minor redness, you will have to postpone your laser hair removal treatment. You should also avoid self tanner because it could cause skin discoloration after treatment.

Don’t Bleach

Because laser technology works by targeting the pigment in your hair follicle, if you bleach your hair prior to your appointment, you will alter the pigment in your hair and compromise the effectiveness of the laser hair removal treatment. Stop bleaching six weeks prior to treatment for the best results.

Check Your Medications

Some medications will impact the effectiveness of the laser hair removal treatment. Others could make your skin more sensitive or susceptible to burns or irritation. Let your laser hair removal professional know about all medications and supplements you use prior to your first treatment appointment.
