If you’re thinking about trying laser hair removal, read all about the process and what to expect at your first appointment.
Before Your Treatment
Once you know you want to make your laser hair appointment, make sure to limit sun exposure to the area for about four to six weeks before. You should also avoid plucking or waxing the area.
Make sure to avoid caffeine 24 hours before your appointment and talk to your laser specialist about any medications you’re taking.
Once you’re at your appointment, the area being treated will be cleansed. A numbing gel will also be applied to reduce discomfort.
During Your Treatment
During your laser treatment, your skin is held taut while the laser works over the desired areas.
At The Laser Lounge Spa, our professionals work to ensure you’re comfortable during your treatment. Laser hair removal treatment isn’t necessarily painful, but may feel like warm pinpricks during the procedure.
The procedure time varies depending on what area of the body you’re focusing on. An area as small as the upper lip may take a few minutes while your bikini area may take up to an hour.
After Your Treatment
Once your treatment is complete, it’s normal to experience redness in the treated area for a few hours. You can help soothe any redness or discomfort with a cool compress.
Aftercare includes avoiding direct sunlight on the treated area and applying sunscreen when outside. Make sure not to pick at your skin or any blisters that may occur. You can also try vitamin E oil or aloe vera on affected areas.
You will notice a difference in your hair a few days after your treatment. Once laser hair removal benefits kick in, you’ll be able to enjoy your new, smooth skin.
Most laser hair treatments require more than one session to make the area fully hair-free. Laser hair removal will keep the area hairless and smooth!
The biggest benefit of laser hair removal is that you’ll be able to avoid plucking, waxing, and shaving for a long time!
