Unwanted hair on your body or face is probably one of the most annoying things. If you want your skin to be smooth and silky, you need to get rid of that unwanted hair. While most women naturally do shave and wax, their results are temporary. Suppose you are looking for a painless yet long-term solution to your pesky hair. In that case, you might want to consider undergoing laser hair removal treatment.
These treatments have increasingly become a popular choice among millions nowadays. It works using concentrated light energy that the melanin will absorb into the skin. Then, this light energy is converted to heat energy that will damage the hair follicles in the skin. Thus hair growth will be prevented or delayed.
Follow these tips before undergoing laser hair treatment from a laser clinic in Toowoomba to ensure good results.
Shaving before the Treatment is Recommended
You might be thinking of plucking or waxing your body before the treatment. That is a big No-No. Never attempt to pluck or wax your hair if you plan to take laser hair removal treatment, as it could prevent achieving the best result. Shaving however is recommended.
Consider Taking Multiple Sessions for the Best Result.
All hairs are unique, with varying levels of granules. Laser hair removal treatment works best in darker skin tones and darker hairs. Be sure to know that only around 80% of your hair follicles will be destroyed with the treatment. It requires several sessions to achieve this result, especially if you have a lighter skin tone. Therefore, if you want to enjoy smooth, silky and clean skin for a long time, take multiple sessions.
Do Not Apply Any Products to Your Skin
If you are planning for laser hair removal treatment, then make sure to clean your body and face with lotion. Skincare products contain components that may react negatively with a laser beam resulting in pigmentation & irritation, or maybe worse, skin burns.
Learn About Post-Treatment Irritation
It is wise to read and learn about the treatment before undergoing it, especially its potential side effects. After the treatment, you may feel inconveniences like swelling and irritation. These are all normal and will go away in a few days. However, apply a cold or warm compress on the treated area to get instant relief. Also, you may ask your laser technician how to take care of skin swelling and irritation.
Avoid Sun Exposure as Much as Possible.
As annoying as they may feel, the hairs in our skin have a purpose. They protect our skin from the sun’s direct radiation. The hairs being laser removed leaves your skin vulnerable to the sun’s harmful UV rays. So, after the treatment, your technician will advise you to wear sunscreen every time you go out if possible, avoid sun exposure.
