Almost everyone has unwanted hair somewhere on their body. Unfortunately traditional removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them last forever, and now there lies the permanent beauty secret of laser hair removal.
Prior to laser hair removal avoid indoor or outdoor tanning and the use of self-tanning products for approximately four weeks. You must thoroughly shave your hair preferably one day prior to the procedure. Do not wax, tweeze dye hair or have electrolysis two weeks prior to the procedure. Avoid skin care products with irritants such as Glycolic Acid or Retin-A in the procedure area for about a week.
How does laser hair removal work? –The laser beam passes through the skin and is absorbed in the hair follicle residing underneath the skin’s surface. The laser energy can destroy the follicle with the heat that it generates. Destroyed hairs are then either dissolved within the skin or rejected by the body within two to three weeks.
How many laser hair removal procedures will be needed? – Laser hair removal procedures impair the growth of hair follicles when they are in the growth cycle at the time of the procedure. There are three phases in a person’s hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. This is why you need more than one procedure. Most people require approximately four to six procedures to have desired results. This is standard practice with most type of laser hair removal system.
