Laser hair removal is an awesome procedure that allows people to get rid of unwanted body hair forever. This is great if you no longer want to shave your legs or armpits, or if you are sick of waxing your face, bikini area, etc. However, just as with any other procedure, it is important that you do and know certain things in order for it to be successful. Here are three tips for successful laser hair removal.
Your Hair Must Be Dark And Coarse
In order for the hair to be effected by the laser removal process, it must be dark and coarse. The good thing about this is that hairs that are often shaved come in thicker and darker, so you shouldn't have to many issues if you are getting laser hair removal in an area that you are often shaving. The hairs that are lighter and more fine simply are not targeted correctly by the laser, making it difficult or impossible to try and remove them. When you go in for your consultation, the specialist who will be performing your microblading will carefully look at the hairs in all the areas that you'd like treatment and will let you know if you are a good candidate or not.
Do Not Tweeze Or Wax At All During Treatment
It is very important that you don't tweeze or wax during your laser hair removal treatment process. The reason for this being that this pulls your hair follicle completely out, rather than just shaving it off at the surface of the skin. The laser used during laser hair removal targets the hair follicle and destroys is so that hair will no longer grow back in. If the hair follicle is not there to be destroyed, then it will keep growing back in and the laser hair removal process will be not be very effective.
Don't Miss A Treatment
The treatments for laser hair removal are set at certain intervals, which are generally every few weeks or so. These intervals are important because they allow a different growth cycle to occur, which then means that the laser is treating hair follicles that haven't yet been targeted by the laser. This is what allows all of your hair to be removed, rather than just certain patches of hair. If you miss a treatment, then you miss a certain growth cycle and will have to wait several weeks for it to come in again.
For successful laser hair removal, make sure that your hair is dark and coarse, don't wax or tweeze during the laser hair removal process, and don't miss a treatment.
