You probably have a lot of questions regarding laser hair removal. Here are some of the answers to the questions you may have.
Does laser hair removal work?
In order to see noticeable you will need to be consistent with your treatment. The results of laser hair removal treatment will not be instant. Your legs won’t magically transform into hairless, smooth statues. It will be a process. Your hair follicles are on their own growth cycle. It is best to go in for treatment every month or so in order to maximize the potential of targeting the most follicles.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Laser hair removal treatment is safe and effective when performed by a board certified dermatologist. It is best to stay away from spa and other beauty boutiques that perform this treatment unless they have a certified dermatologist on their staff and they perform the treatment.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal isn’t actually permanent hair removal but rather permanent hair reduction. You will have to keep this treatment up although you will be able to go longer times without having treatment.
Does is hurt?
Laser hair removal isn’t like a day at the spa. It will feel like rubber bands are being snapped on the particular area you decide to treat. Whether this is painful depend on how high your threshold for pain is.
Does laser hair removal work on dark skin and dark hair?
Some skin and hair types are harder to treat. Dark hair follicles on light skin are usually easier to treat because the laser targets the hair’s pigment. But if you find the right machine it will pick up on the melanin in the hair and not in the skin.
Avoid sun exposure in the area that you receive the laser hair removal treatment. Always wear eye protection during the treatment. Shave the area that is being treated prior treatment.
