Laser hair removal may be an option worth considering if you are unhappy with tweezing, shaving, or waxing to remove unwanted hair. In the United States, laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. Into hair follicles, beams of highly concentrated light are sent and the pigment in the follicles absorb the light, which destroys the hair. Today, we at Skin and Body Refinery would like to further discuss the basics and advantages of

Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

Removing unwanted hair from the leg, back, arm, chin, face, underarm, bikini line, and other areas is usefully done through lasers. Benefits of laser hair removal include precision removal, time-effective, and predictability.
Precision Hair Removal. While leaving the surrounding skin undamaged, laser can selectively target dark, coarse hairs you want removed.
Time Effective. Treating many hairs at the same time, each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second. About the size of a quarter every second, the laser can treat a sufficient area. Large areas, like the back or legs, may take up to an hour, and the small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute. Making this method of hair removal very time efficient.
More Permanent Hair Removal Results. After an average of three to seven sessions, most patients have permanent hair loss.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Being significantly more than just zapping away the unwanted hair, laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires training to conduct and carries potential risks. You should take the time to thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure prior to getting laser hair removal services. You should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment if you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal. Since the hairs’ root are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking, the lasers can’t target the roots that it should for effective removal. Before and after treatment, you need to also avoid sun exposure. Hair removal is less effective, and it increases the likelihood of complications after treatment.

Experience During Laser Hair Removal

Your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface, just before the procedure. To help with the sting of the laser pulses, usually topical numbing medicine is applied 20- 30 minutes prior to the laser procedure. In addition to your skin color, the laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated.
