Preparing for your Treatment
Before a laser hair removal treatment, it's essential to follow these guidelines:
Things to avoid:
Sun exposure: Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning beds for at least two weeks before treatment, as it can increase the risk of complications.
Hair removal methods: Avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for at least four weeks before treatment, as the laser targets hair roots, which these methods temporarily remove.
Self-tanning products: Avoid using self-tanning products or spray tans before treatment, as they can interfere with the laser's effectiveness.
Certain medications: Some medications, such as antibiotics or photosensitizing drugs, may increase sensitivity to light. Consult with your provider about any medications you're taking.
Skincare products: Avoid using skincare products with active ingredients like retinoids or alpha hydroxy acids for a few days before treatment, as they can increase skin sensitivity.
Things to do:
Shave the treatment area: Shave the area to be treated a day or two before your appointment to ensure the laser targets the hair follicles and not the surface hair.
Cleanse the skin: Cleanse the treatment area thoroughly before your appointment to remove any makeup, lotions, or oils.
Consultation: Attend a consultation appointment to discuss your medical history, expectations, and any concerns with your provider.
Follow pre-treatment instructions: Follow any specific pre-treatment instructions provided by your provider to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.
How long do results last?
The duration of results from laser hair removal can vary depending on factors such as the individual's hair type, skin type, and the area treated. In general, laser hair removal offers long-lasting results, with many individuals experiencing significant hair reduction that lasts for several months to years. Some people may require periodic maintenance treatments to target any regrowth or new hair follicles. With each session, the hair typically becomes finer and lighter, and regrowth is often slower. Maintenance sessions, if needed, are usually less frequent than the initial treatment sessions.
