3 Tips for Getting Ready for Laser Hair Removal

Experts estimate that the laser hair removal industry will be worth $3.9 billion by 2026.

The popularity of the facility has not developed without justification. Laser hair removal has helped millions of people feel more confident in their own skin.

However, many people remain confused about what exactly the procedure entails, and how they should approach it.

Read on as we tell you everything you need to know about preparing for laser hair removal.

Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal isn't anything to be apprehensive about. However, there are certain steps you can take to ensure that you get the most out of the procedure.

These are our three key tips for laser hair removal preparation.

1. Shaving

Many people ask about shaving or waxing before going for a laser hair removal appointment. 

The advice we give is that you should shave on the night before your treatment. You should avoid waxing for around six weeks before the date of your treatment, as the heat from the laser needs to be able to travel down the remaining hair to work properly.

In fact, you should avoid any hair removal treatment other than shaving in the weeks leading up to your treatment.

2. Avoid Tanning

You should not book in for any sunbed sessions for around six weeks before you go for laser hair removal treatment. This is because your skin will be more vulnerable to damage after you have it tanned. 

You should also avoid fake tan products for a few weeks prior to your treatment. Any change in the pigmentation of your skin relative to that of your body hair will reduce the efficacy of the lasers.

3. Avoid Using Products

You should not use products of any kind on your skin on the day you go for laser hair removal. This includes deodorant, lotion, cream, moisturiser, or any other product you might use. 

Any such substance on your skin can lessen the effectiveness of the hair removal treatment.

The Results

Results vary somewhat from person to person. Some people may reach their desired results after a single session, while others might need to return several times to achieve what they want to achieve.

However, once the course of treatment is concluded, almost every client is left satisfied. At our clinic, courses of treatment typically last from six to eight weeks.

Once treatment is completed, you can look forward to a permanent absence of unwanted hair. While some regrowth may occur, you can manage this with repeat treatments. In any case, regrowth is unlikely for at least six months.

The Hair Removal Solution You Need

If you've grown tired of shaving and waxing, you aren't alone. People around the world are realizing that laser hair removal is the way of the future.

Preparing for laser hair removal is nothing to worry about. Just apply the tips above and you'll be good to go!
