Everything You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal: A Comprehensive Guide

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular and successful skincare treatments available today. It is a procedure that utilizes the power of intense laser light to target the pigment in hair follicles, thereby slowing or stopping future hair growth. If you're considering laser hair removal, it's important to understand the do's and don'ts of the procedure. Before treatment, it's essential to cleanse your skin and avoid hot baths, showers, steam rooms, or saunas.

Additionally, you should not use bleaching creams or perfume products for 24 to 48 hours. Exfoliating or peeling should also be avoided for a week. When it comes to clothing, try to wear loose-fitting garments for two to three days after treatment. If there are signs of infection such as pus, tenderness, or fever, contact the clinic immediately. After treatment, it's important to follow skin care instructions to avoid any complications.

The most important thing when preparing for laser hair removal is that your skin is healthy and undamaged, and that you have roots so that the laser has something to target and prevent hair from growing back in the hair follicle. Approximately 2 to 3 weeks after a laser hair removal treatment, 10 to 20% of treated hairs will fall out. If you are going to have laser hair removal on your legs, bikini line, or armpits, avoid using shower gels, fragrances, or chemical lotions that can cause inflammation. If you have undergone facial laser hair removal, avoid applying makeup for the first 24 hours to avoid irritation. We recommend 6 to 12 laser hair removal sessions scheduled four weeks apart for the first round of treatment (depending on the target area and skin tone). You may notice flaking or stubble hair on the treated area as the follicles begin to shed excess hair. The best way to know if laser hair removal is right for you is to go to a professional spa or clinic for a consultation.

With each subsequent treatment, less and less hair grows back until finally it stops growing completely. Get started now with your laser hair removal package at LH Spa & Rejuvenation by scheduling a consultation.
