Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Before the procedure begins the candidate’s hair that will undergo the treatment will be trimmed to just a few millimetres above skin surface. In most cases topical numbing medicines is applied 20 to 30 minutes before the procedure begins. This helps with the sting that the person may feel through the laser pulses. The laser equipment is adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of the hair being treated as well as the skin color.

Appropriate eye protection should be worn depending on the laser or light source both by the candidate as well as the technician. It may also be necessary to protect the outer layer of the skin with a cold gel or a special cooling device. This also helps the laser light penetrate the skin.  

Next, the technician will target a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions.

When the procedure is completed, the candidate may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort. They may be scheduled for next treatment four to six weeks later. Treatment will continue until hair stops growing.

Recovery and Risks of Laser Hair Removal

For a couple of days after the procedure is done, the treated area of the skin may look and feel like it has been sunburned. When this happens, cool compresses and moisturizers may help. If the face has been treated, people often choose to wear makeup to cover the blistering skin.

Preparing for Laser hair Removal

Unlike common notions, laser hair removal is a proper medical procedure that requires training to perform and entails potential risks. It is not just zapping away unwanted hair like with an epilator. Before getting a laser hair removal, one should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician who will be performing the procedure.

Plucking, waxing and electrolysis should be limited at least six weeks before planning to go for a laser hair removal. This is because the laser as mentioned before targets the roots of the hair which would be temporarily removed by waxing or plucking and would regrow. One should also limit the exposure to sun for six weeks before and after the treatment. Sun rays make the laser hair removal less effective and create complications post the treatment in all likelihood
