If you have a lot of hair and have had enough of temporary hair removal techniques after feeling dissatisfied with the results, then you probably have thought of having laser hair removal. However, before booking an appointment, you should know the following things first. Contact the Skin Transformation Center today to learn more!
1. Understand the Science
Laser hair removal works on light skin types by transmitting a concentrated beam of light directly into the hair follicle pigments. In people with darker skin, the laser is attracted to the supply of blood to the hair follicle which then destroys and causes stunting of the hair growth in both scenarios.
2. Find the Right Clinic
You have to do adequate research to find a reputable clinic with a qualified therapist and the most advanced technology to reduce the chances of you having a lousy laser removal experience. This is to make sure that you receive a high standard of quality care. At Skin Transformation Center, we make sure our patients feel confident about their procedures. You’ll be in the right hands with our friendly and talented team.
3. Undergo a Patch Test
Undergoing a patch test is vital before laser hair removal treatment. It will show whether or not you are likely to react to the laser hair removal treatment and will also show if you have sensitive skin. Our specialist will then be able to determine if you are suitable for the procedures as well as the most appropriate course of action for your skin.
4. Avoid Exposure to the Sun
The proper time for undergoing laser hair removal treatment is when your skin is its natural color. The sun tends to discolor the skin or even worse, give you sunburn. If you love the sun, you will have to get your treatment during winter months. Now that you are to stay out of the sun, you should avoid fake tans too. The tanning lotions darken the skin, which will force the laser to be absorbed into the skin as opposed to the hair follicle, thus reducing the effectiveness of the treatment. You do not want to get burns or blisters after laser hair removal.
5. 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 will enter the active growing stage that the laser targets. Moreover, you should avoid bleaching, plucking or waxing four weeks before your treatment begins. The primary reason is that these forms of treatment tear the hairs out by the roots and since laser hair removal treatment targets those roots, the effectiveness of the treatment is reduced.
