Keep the following tips in mind while getting Hair Laser Removal Treatment in order to get the best results for getting smooth and hairless skin.
- Do not WAX, PLUCK or use a depilatory in the areas you would like to have treated 4 weeks before your laser hair removal treatment.
Why? Laser works just for pigment or melanin, so if you remove hairs from the root there will be no pigment to target. That’s why before your first laser hair removal treatment, you should shave the area that will undergo the treatment. If you don’t feel comfortable with shaving your upper lip for example, you can always trim the area every couple of days.
- On the day of your Laser Hair Removal treatment, it is very important to shave or trim as close to the surface of the skin as possible.
Why? This action will make the treatment outcome better, in that case the energy from the Soprano ICE laser concentrates in the smallest length of hair as possible. If the hair is long, the energy will be dispersed along the full length of the hair, making it less effective and leading to more chances of burning the skin surface.
- Laser Hair Removal can not be performed on skin that has a tan.
Please remember, the laser targets the brown pigment melanin, and melanin is also responsible for the darkening of your skin is exposed to UV rays. Targeting the melanin in your tan could lead to uneven-looking skin. And the most important point is that the sun also makes your skin more sensitive to laser, leading to a higher chance of burns and blisters. So stay out of the sun or wear sunblock for up to a month or two after the treatment. However if you plan to get a vacation on the sunny beach, make sure you get a consultation beforehand at Arion Skin Laser Clinic.
