What To Know Before Laser Hair Treatments
One of the main things to be aware of is the fact that most laser hair treatments use lasers and pulsed lights and this usually works best on people with
dark hair and light skin. If you have darker skin, it may work, but often can produce bad results or skin discoloration. Thus, if you have darker skin,
make sure to ask for the ND Yag laser, specially designed for your skin.
It's important to know that the lasers affect the hair in the growth phase and all of the hair will fall out within 10-14 days. Be sure you decide what area
of your body you want the treatment on before going to get it done. It is possible to get large areas of your skin treated, and ideal spots are the back,
shoulders, arms, and chest. If you are seeking facial laser hair treatment, know that for upper lip and chin, it works best on dark hair. If you are blonde,
it might not work as well, and you ought to opt for electrolysis instead.
Be prepared to attend about 4-6 sessions spread out between four weeks in order to achieve the best hair removal results. Even after that, to maintain
this, you will have to schedule maintenance treatments every year for a couple of years so that professionals can monitor your hair growth and be sure
that it has ceased.
Understand and be prepared for the fact that laser hair treatments are not entirely guaranteed to work. As all body types are different, these treatments
work for some people and do not work at all for others. Sometimes you will experience no hair growth for years and then suddenly see hair begin to
sprout back up, causing you to have to return to the razor. These sessions can be quite expensive, so if you are willing to invest in it, do so with the
awareness that it might not work out for certain.
If you do decide that this is something you want to do, be sure to shave about three days before your treatment. Often if you go in freshly shaven, you
might be told to go home and wait a few days before you can start your treatment. Be prepared for some pain
