What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Over time, razors, waxing, or other treatments can become expensive. While laser hair removal may cost more initially, you can save money in the long run.
Whether it’s shaving, waxing, plucking, or epilating, hair removal takes up a lot of time that most people would rather spend doing other things.
You won’t have to think before you go somewhere whether your skin is smooth or not. When your skin always looks and feels smooth, stubble becomes a thing of the past.
How Do I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
You should start preparing for your laser hair removal at least one month before your session. Preparation will help you achieve better results.
Avoid Waxing or Plucking
The laser needs a hair root to target a follicle. Methods that pull hair out of the follicle, like waxing, remove the root, so you will not be able to treat as many follicles. Wait at least one month for roots to grow back. You can still shave at any time.
Bleaching does not remove the root, but it does remove the pigment. This makes the follicle invisible to the laser, just like a follicle with no hair in it.
Shave Before Treatment
The day before treatment, shave the area well. Treatment works better when most of the hair is inside the follicle, below the surface of the skin. Shaving leaves the entire root, so treatment still works just as well.
