HOW MANY LASER HAIR
REMOVAL TREATMENTS ?
How many treatments will I need?
Reduction can be seen in one treatment, but you’ll need a few treatments to get optimal results. That’s because hair grows in three stages. Between 3-8 treatments, an average of six weeks apart, will be required to catch all of them in the growth stage.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.
Before your treatment
Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
Pre-Laser Treatment Precautions
The area to be treated should be protected from sun tanning and sun exposure for at least four to six weeks. Apply a high SPF sunscreen on the area. Avoid exposure to the sun during the course of treatment as this can cause sunburn.
Avoid bleaching, plucking, waxing the area for four to six weeks before the treatment.
If you have a history of herpes, go for anti-viral therapy before and after the treatment.
Do not take any photosensitive drugs or herbals for 24 hours before the treatment.
Do not shave for three to eight days before the treatment. For further treatments, do not shave for one to two weeks so that the doctor can see the stubble growth on the day of treatment. Use a sunscreen throughout the course of treatment.
How do I prepare for treatment?
Hair removal patients should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus (cold sores), prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment. Sun must be avoided 4-6 weeks before and after treatment. Patients who are actively tanned or sunburned will need to re-schedule their treatment session. Additionally you cannot be treated if you have a spray or artificial tan.
