Tired of traditional methods of hair removal? Here are some tips for laser hair removal which are all safe and effective ways of removing unwanted hair. We’ve summarised our knowledge into 5 essential tips to help you learn more about this popular treatment!
You’ll need to attend multiple sessions
Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicle. To effectivity target the hair follicles, the hair has to be in the right stage of its growth cycle to destroy the hair.
A series of treatments are needed to target all hairs within its right stage of the growth cycle. All hair is not on the same cycle, so by having multiple sessions spread out over time, the laser has a better opportunity of targeting all the hairs effectively.
So, a one-off session won’t result in permanent hair removal. For more permanent results, we always recommend at least 6 – 8 sessions.
Typically, people can see an 80-90% permanent reduction in hair growth, but fluctuating hormones can make hair grow back. But any hair that does grow back can be treated again. So, you may need maintenance sessions once or twice a year after your initial full treatment.
Only shaving is allowed!
If you decide to go with laser hair removal treatment, you must stop tweezing, plucking and waxing the areas you’re treating. The laser works by targeting the root of the hairs, if there is no root to target, results will take longer and will be less effective.
You are allowed to shave the area before and in between sessions. This allows the laser to target the follicle successfully and also helps to exfoliate the skin in between sessions.
Take care of your skin
To get the best results from your treatment, you should try your best to look after your skin for the entirety of your treatment time. This includes protecting the treated areas from the sun, not fake tanning, and using sun cream. The more care you take, the better results you can get from your treatment!
