Get your smoothest skin with these tips for laser hair removal
Various laser devices exist, but each patient will respond differently to the laser hair removal process, just as one person responds to medication differently than another. In addition to selecting our laser equipment very carefully, we suggest ways to maximize your hair removal experience.
Laser hair removal works by delivering precise wavelengths of laser energy into hair follicles. This energy transfers to tissue in the form of heat, destroying existing hair and incapacitating the follicle for future hair production. The absorption of heat can lead to post-treatment tenderness that feels similar to a sunburn. To comfort slightly irritated skin, we suggest applying a cold compress to the treatment area for short periods of time until symptoms subside.
Most of us could benefit from a little moisturizing of the skin. This pampering treatment is especially important after laser hair removal. However, it is important to use a suitable, non-comedogenic, unscented moisturizer in order to get the desired result. Many of the lotions we love today include alcohol and other drying ingredients. If you have questions about which moisturizer is best for you, ask your treating practitioner.
Managing hair growth
A single laser treatment will vaporize the hair that is in the follicle. Because hair grows in cycles, you will see new hair some time after your initial session. It is acceptable to shave, if need be. However, no method which pulls hair from the follicle, such as plucking, should be used. We need hair in the follicles in order for laser treatment to be effective!
Managing skin health
Sun protection is important at all times, but especially after laser treatments, which may make the skin more susceptible to irritation. Like the moisturizing lotion you use, choosing an unscented sunscreen is advisable.
