Laser hair removal has zero downtime, making it incredibly convenient. Men and women who have tried this treatment for themselves champion its effectiveness.
Before the start of the procedure, the medical professional will review the candidate’s medical history to rule out any skin disorders or factors that would increase the risk of excessive scarring. Once cleared for treatment, the candidate will arrange a date for the treatment.
There are a few precautions to be taken beforehand. Limit sun exposure and avoid any skin-lightening treatments. It is also best to avoid any hair-removal methods until the date of treatment.
On the day of the procedure, the skin is first shaved to prepare for the procedure. Shaving is the chosen method of hair removal because it removes surface hair while leaving the root intact. A missing root means the laser will not have anything to lock onto.
Laser hair removal will require multiple sittings to achieve best results. With each treatment, there is a noticeable reduction in hair density.
