If you’re about to get a laser hair removal treatment, there are several things you can do to make the process more comfortable for you. Follow the tips and talk with your Aesthetician about the best methods for your body type.
What Is A Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Laser hair removal treatments use light to cut off the hair at the follicle level. The laser emits an invisible light that interacts with the melanin in the hair, destroying it and making the process painless and quick. Before your treatment, you’ll need to prepare your skin by removing excess oil, lotions, or waxes. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move freely. The first step is usually a consultation, where they will look at your skin and discuss your options.
How To Prepare Your Face for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Before you go for laser hair removal treatment, you need to schedule an appointment with your physician. He or she can help determine if laser hair removal is the best option for you and prescribe the necessary medications, depending on your skin type. Preparation of the skin means removing all of your facial hair, using a topical cream before the treatment, and wearing a tight-fitting cap after the session. If you’re considering laser hair removal, be sure to ask about our new IPL technology, which uses low-level pulses of light to destroy unwanted hair without leaving any burning or stinging sensations.
How To Prepare Your Body for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment
There isn’t really anything specific that you need to do before your treatment, but it is important to be aware of some potential side effects that can occur during and after a laser Hair Removal Treatment. Make sure to tell your doctor about any medications or supplements you are taking, as these could potentially interact with the light used during treatment. And lastly, keep in mind that even after the treatment is complete, there may be some residual redness and swelling where the lasers were applied. Allow these things time to subside before continuing with daily activities.
Preparation Tips for the Day of a Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Whether you are undergoing a laser hair removal treatment for the first time or have been using lasers for a while, there are some preparatory steps you can take to ensure a smooth and successful experience.
Apply Lotion: Before applying any topical cream or lotion, ensure that the area is completely dry. This will help avoid irritation and prolong the life of your treatment kit.
Avoid Alcohol: Drinking alcohol before or during a laser treatment can irritate and even cause burning sensations on the skin.
Shave Specific Area: If your consultant asks you to shave a specific area before coming for a full-body treatment, you must follow the guidelines.
