It is good for you to understand how the treatment works in order for you to understand why it is effective. Lasers generate energy that is transmitted to the follicles of your hair in the form of heat. The pigment of the hair absorbs this heat. As this happens, the hair follicles are destroyed. In other situations, light energy is used to target the hair follicles. The same goal is accomplished because the hair follicles will also be destroyed. When the hair follicles are destroyed, they will not produce more hair. This leads to permanent hair reduction.
You may have heard people say that only certain individuals qualify for laser hair removal. However, since sophisticated lasers exist, individuals with all hair colors and skin colors can benefit from these treatments. Even individuals who have fine hair and dark skin can benefit. The idea is to find the right equipment for your specific needs. You want to find out about the type of treatments that an office offers before scheduling a consultation. This means that you need to arm yourself with knowledge about the type of laser treatments that are available today and who they can help.
Preparing for Treatment
Before you visit us for your initial treatment, it is good for you to know that there are some things that you should do before laser hair removal. Skip your daily skin care routine. Don’t apply lotion or sunscreen on the day that you have your appointment. You want your skin to be as clean as possible. When you schedule your initial consultation, it is good to ask about the skincare products that you should avoid using in the weeks leading up to your treatment.
You will need to avoid exposure to the sun in the weeks that lead up to your treatment as well. You do not want to have a natural or a fake tan before your laser hair removal session. You can shave away unwanted hair in the days before your treatment. However, make sure that you do not wax or pluck unwanted hairs in the weeks leading up to the session.
