Have you ever thought about how much time it takes for you to manually get rid of unwanted hair? It is likely that you dedicate at least a little bit of time to this each morning. For example, women often shave their underarms, bikini line, and legs on a regular basis. They may wax or use tweezers to get rid of unwanted facial hair. If you are interested in saving time and enjoying more convenience, we would like to tell you about the benefits that come from laser hair reduction.
In addition to giving you more time each day, this treatment also will save you money over time. Have you ever thought about how many razors, waxing kits, tweezers, shaving cream, bandages, and ointments you have used over time? You will be able to toss all of those things out after a recommended amount of laser hair reduction treatments.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
You are going to be able to enjoy long-term hair reduction with laser treatments because of the way the energy from the laser affects the hair follicles. When hair follicles are going through an active growth phase and they absorb energy from the laser, they will be disabled. This means that you do not have to worry about them growing for a very long time. It is usually only hormonal changes that can trigger the growth of new hair.
You will need to go through several sessions in order to get the best results. Not all the hair on your body is actively growing at the moment. As such, we will need to schedule several sessions in order to treat all of the hair in a specific area when it is actively growing. Treatments are usually scheduled a number of weeks apart.
How to Prepare for Your Treatment
While not much preparation is necessary for laser hair reduction, there are some things you should know. First, you will need to avoid exposure to the sun in the weeks that proceed your treatment and in the time during your treatment sessions.
One common misconception that people have is that they cannot shave before a laser hair reduction treatment. You can shave, but you should avoid waxing and plucking. You want to leave the hair follicles in place so that they can be treated by the laser.
