Laser Hair Removal Process

Laser Hair Removal Process

The laser hair removal process involves the use of light energy to heat the hair follicles, damaging the roots to prevent regrowth of the hair. The process has the advantage of minimal discomfort and when it’s applied over several sessions, may provide permanent results.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

When you make your appointment for laser hair removal, there are a few things to keep in mind. You should avoid tanning and using sunless tanning lotions and products for at least a month before your appointment. Avoid plucking or waxing your skin. You’ll be instructed about shaving a day or two before your appointment at your initial consultation. Be sure to wash the skin thoroughly before your appointment, and avoid using any creams or lotions. Wear loose fitting clothing, as the skin may be sensitive after treatment.

IPL Hair Removal

IPL is a form of light-based hair removal that relies upon high-intensity pulses of visible light to heat and destroy the hair follicles. IPL can treat a larger area of skin at a time compared to a hair removal laser, and can be used to treat a variety of different conditions. Different skin tones and hair types have different removal requirements, however. It’s important to talk to your doctor about which process will work best for you.

While some devices are sold for home use, it’s best to see a clinician for your laser hair removal. The process is precise and requires training and experience to complete accurately. By allowing an experienced clinician to apply the therapy, you’ll not only get the best and longest- lasting results, you’ll avoid any accidental damage to your skin.
