The 5 Things You Shold Know Before Getting Laser Hair Removal
Thinking about getting laser hair removal for your unwanted hair?
Here are 5 things you need to know before getting laser hair removal.
1 – The process is relatively safe
Dr. J.S. Chhabra, founder of Dr.Chhabra’s Skinlife Clinic, one of the premier laser hair removal treatment centre in Indore, explains that laser hair removal is safe and works by sending the light of a laser through the pigment in the hair. The process requires the combination of US-FDA approved lasers (diode, ipl&Nd:Yag) depending on the patient’s skin and hair type for smooth results. The laser used has a cooling mechanism which really helps.
2 – You may need 2-10 sessions for optimal results
Depending on the color of your hair and skin, the thickness of your hair and several other individual factors, you will need between 2 and 10 sessions spread for weeks apart from each other in order to get optimal results – the complete removal of the unwanted hair. Set up your free consultation at Dr.Chhabra’s Skinlife Clinic, the best centre for laser hair removal treatment in Indore to find out exactly how many sessions you will need.
3 – Avoid exposure to the sun
The proper time for undergoing laser hair removal treatment is when your skin is in its natural color. The sun tends to discolor the skin and cause tanning. The tanning force the laser to be absorbed into the skin as opposed to the hair follicle, thus reducing the effectiveness of the treatment.
4 – Shave the area to be treated
You should shave the area to be treated one or two days before your laser hair removal treatment so that your hair enters the active growing stage that the laser targets. Besides this, you should avoid bleaching, plucking or waxing four weeks before your treatment begins. The main reason is that these forms of treatment tear the hair out by the roots and since laser hair reduction treatment targets those roots, the effectiveness of the treatment is reduced.
4 – Laser hair removal is suitable for both men and women
Yes, even men want to get rid of body hair, so why not try laser hair removal? It can be used on any area of the skin, which makes it ideal for everyone.
