Over the past few years, the process of permanent hair removal has advanced to be able to affect a larger number of people. While the process may seem abstract to some, laser hair removal can be an easy solution to dealing with unwanted hair. Understanding how it works can leave you comfortable and ready to begin.
The results can vary from person to person. It typically works best on someone with light skin and dark hair, or dark skin and dark hair if there’s contrast.
The area of treatment should be shaved two days beforehand. The doctors want to see stubble, not long hairs.
Ask your specialist if they use topicals. These will make it easier and less painful in the more sensitive areas, such as the bikini line or under the arms.
The process will take multiple treatments to complete, especially for thicker and darker hairs. The first session will typically be the most painful, with the laser feeling like a rubberband snapping on the skin. the treatments typically last 10 to 20 minutes.
The goal of the process is to not only destroy the follicle but the bulge, the area in which new hairs form.
