Tired of waxing or shaving on a weekly basis? Laser hair removal could be a great option for you. In fact, it’s among the best ways a person can achieve permanent hair reduction with minimal discomfort. Laser hair removal is also fast, non-invasive, and usually leaves your skin smoother and softer than you could have ever imagined.
At Rao Dermatology, we provide the best possible treatment by some of the most highly-skilled technicians. You can look forward to the clear and beautiful-looking skin you’ve dreamed of.
Here are a few things you can do to maximize your laser hair removal treatment results:
Don’t Wax or Pluck before Your Treatment
The main goal of the laser is to target melanin or pigment. If a person chose to remove hairs from the root, there would be no pigment to target in the first place. It’s also important to have the area scheduled for treatment shaved a few weeks before your first treatment. If the shaving brings you any discomfort, look for some small scissors and trim the area every couple of days.
Don’t Tan: Use Sunscreen
The laser targets the brown pigment melanin, so you’ll want your skin to be as light as possible when you undergo treatment. Targeting the melanin in your tan could result in uneven, blotchy skin. Particularly if you have sunburn, your skin can become very sensitive to laser hair removal. Make sure you apply some sunscreen with an SPF 30+ for at least two weeks before and after each treatment.
Shave or Trim before Your Treatment
On the day of your treatment, it’s important to trim or shave as close to the surface of the skin as possible. This maximizes the laser’s energy, allowing it to fully concentrate in the smallest length of hair possible. As a result, you get much better outcomes after treatment. The chance of burning the skin surface is also considerably minimized.
Be Consistent with Your Treatment Schedule
Finally, it’s crucial to stick to your treatment schedule at all times. Facial hairs should be treated every four to six weeks, while body hairs should be treated every six to eight weeks for optimal results. Otherwise, frequent skipping of treatment can dramatically reduce your chances of achieving extraordinary results from laser hair removal treatment.
