If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be the perfect treatment for you.

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It directs highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light, which then destroys the hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.

Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target specific hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of five to eight sessions.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or tweezing.
You should also 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
Just before the procedure, your hair should be trimmed or shaved leaving no more than a millimeter of hair above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.

What to expect after Laser Hair Removal
Due to the laser energy, the hair can be left feeling course. It will fall out in a week or two and can be lightly exfoliated to help with this. Absolutely no tweezing or pulling on the hair after each treatment. This will promote hair growth, and will counter act with treatments!
