Laser Hair Removal

2014-04-15 16:28:47

Laser hair removal is a good choice to consider if you want to stop shaving, waxing, and generally want to stop constant hair removal in specific areas. Laser hair removal is a type of procedure that consists of a beaming light, which is highly concentrated, targeted into your hair follicles. Later the light is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicles that ends up destroying the unwanted hair.

Preparing for your Treatment

It is important to remember that laser hair removal is a medical treatment that requires lots of training however has some risks. If you are considering treatment, 6 weeks before your treatment you should try to minimize any sort of “root” hair removal you are already doing such as waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis. The reason for this is because these types of methods remove the hairs roots temporarily, which is what the laser is suppose to target. Also you should try to avoid your skin being exposed to the sun because it gives a bigger chance for problems after your treatment and makes the laser hair removal not so effective.

Expectations during Laser Hair Removal

The hair that will be receiving treatment will be trimmed to a couple of millimeters near the surface of your skin before your procedure is started. The laser equipments will be personally adjusted to you; skin color, thickness, area of hair, and color of hair. You may be asked to wear eye protections depending on the laser/light source being used. A protection for the skin such as a special cooling device may be required in order for the laser light to penetrate the skin. A test will be run; for a couple of minutes a pulse of light will be directed toward the treatment area to make sure all settings are correct and to see if the way your body is reacting is okay to begin the procedure. You may be given products to sooth the skin such as ice packs, lotions etc. after your procedure is finished. Another treatment may be scheduled in about 4-6 weeks, and you will continue this procedure until the hair has permanently stopped growing.

The benefits of Laser Hair Removal

If you would like unwanted hair from areas such as your legs, arms, face, bikini line and other areas of your body laser hair is a good option to choose. Lasers are precise and are able to target dark and coarse hairs however leaving the skin undamaged. It takes less than a second to eliminate many hairs in one pulse. Large areas such as legs can take up to an hour to treat however small areas such as your upper lip may be treated in less than 1 minute. Permanent loss of hair in the areas you are doing your treatment is very common, usually after an average of 3 to 5 sessions.

Risks and Recovery

The area that your skin was treated may feel irritated and have temporary redness as if it was sunburned after 1-2 days since your treatment has been complete. If your area of treatment was your face and it is red you, are allowed to cover up or just generally wear makeup, unless your skin gets irritated with a bad reaction such as blistering. Patients with darker complexions have a larger chance of blisters however they are rare. There may be possibilities of side effects such as redness, swelling and scaring, however permanent scaring is rare. The hair that was treated will fall out over the next month so it is important to protect your skin, especially from the sun, so that there will not be any color changes on your skin, even though color changes in skin is quite rare.
