Removing unwanted hair can be a time-consuming hassle for many individuals and yield only temporary results. Thankfully, a safe method for long-lasting hair removal exists. Laser hair removal uses a concentrated light beam to remove hair right at the follicle.
In preparation for your laser hair removal procedure, your practitioner will instruct you to avoid sun exposure to the treated area and refrain from tanning for at least six weeks prior. Because the hair follicles must be present for the treatment, you must avoid waxing or plucking the area for at least four to six weeks. Shaving and trimming your hair will be necessary the day before your treatment because any hair above the surface could burn, resulting in potential damage to the skin.
