The majority of people who use it find that laser hair removal is safe and well-tolerated. There do not appear to be any long-term health risks associated with the procedure.
To ensure your safety a patch test is commonly carried out at your initial consultation, after your details have been taken, including your medical history and any current medications.
You should make sure that the area to be treated is clean and shaved. It is vital that you do not remove any hair from the root in the run up to your treatment, so no plucking, epilating or waxing. This is because the root is needed for the laser to do its job
The FDA approved laser hair removal for permanent hair reduction. While some clients may not have to shave again others may need maintenance sessions.
The technician places a hand piece with the coolant tip over the area to be treated and pulses the laser. Some people do not feel anything & others may feel a quick sensation like a rubber band hitting your skin.
Most people will start off with a package of 6 treatments for each treatment area. Everyone is different so after the first package is completed some people will never have to shave again while others may just need maintenance sessions a couple of times per year. Some individuals may need to purchase additional sessions due to hormonal issues.
Treatments for facial areas are usually scheduled 4-6 weeks apart, while body areas are scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. It is recommended to do treatments consistently, as this allows us to treat all the hair follicles in a growth cycle at some time during your hair removal treatments.
Please shave the area to be treated the night before the treatment. The less hair on the skin during treatment, the more comfortable the treatment. Please do not wear deodorant if treating your underarms. Avoid the sun 2 to 3 weeks before and after treatment until your technician allows it. You must not bleach, pluck or wax for 3 weeks prior to your treatment.
It is OK to resume shaving or clipping hair in the treated area after 3-4 days. You should not have waxing, plucking or electrolysis done after laser treatment, because these procedures will temporary remove pigmented hairs from the hair roots and reduce the effectiveness of your next laser treatment. Shaving is the best temporary way to remove unwanted hair before laser treatment and between laser treatments. Shaving leaves the hair shafts in the hair follicles so they can be good targets during the next laser treatment, optimizing your results.
