Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers will often be used in modern beauty clinics to remove unwanted hair from a client’s legs, bikini line, arms, face and other areas. There are many benefits to this procedure. These include:

  • Laser Precision

Using modern technology will allow you to specifically target unwanted hair areas. Unlike regular shaving there is no danger of missing any patches of hair.

  • Speed

It takes half a second for a laser to remove hair from your skin. The convenience of this speed is much more desirable than traditional methods of shaving.

It usually takes less than an hour to shave large areas such as the back and legs. Shaving an upper lip will only need a minute of laser treatment.

  • Permanence

It usually only takes between 3 and 7 laser hair procedures for permanent hair loss to occur. This means clients will no longer have to worry about shaving constantly. This will mean money that is usually spent on hair removal can now be saved.

Preparing for the laser hair removal procedure

It is important to make sure your doctor or technician is properly trained and have the correct/relevant credentials in order to perform laser hair removal. If you wish to undergo the procedure you can prepare by limiting any other beauty hair treatments for 6 weeks before the laser hair removal session. In particular, plucking, electrolysis and waxing should be avoided. This is so the laser can target the roots of your hairs (which can be removed with waxing etc.)

Keeping your skin away from direct sunlight 6 weeks before your treatment is also useful. Exposure to the sun can make laser treatment less effective.

What happens during laser hair removal?

The hair that you want treated will usually be lightly trimmed in preparation for the procedure. The laser equipment will then be adjusted depending on the colour, area and length of the area. This area of hair will then be removed by the laser. Duration depends on the size of the area.
