all about laser hair removal

Tired of going through painful waxing sessions, shaving and the hair growing back within a couple of days? Do you want to get rid of unwanted hair permanently? If your answer is yes then let me introduce you to the world of laser hair removal where you will get to know what it actually is, how it actually works, its ups and downs and how you can benefit from it.

What is laser hair removal?

During a laser hair removal process, highly concentrated light is beamed past the upper layer of the skin and into the hair follicles. The melanin in the hair follicles then absorbs the light which in turn destroys the hair. This is done while not heating the skin. Laser hair removal is one of the trendiest cosmetic procedures that are done currently thanks to its speed and efficacy.

Pros of laser hair removal

  • Speed: It can treat a large area in very little time as each lasers pulse only takes a second and it treats many hairs at the same time.
  • Precise: Lasers are selective hence they can target the hair without damaging the surrounding skin.
  • Permanent: After about 3-5 sessions most people get to experience permanent hair reduction on the desired areas.

  • Ingrown hairs: It helps in reducing ingrown hairs which is a joys because those things are really annoying. This leads to less irritation on the skin.
  • It leaves you with a smoother and softer skin.
  • Works on all skin types depending on the type of laser being used.

Cons of laser hair removal

  • Laser hair removal tends to be costly but this depends on the number of treatments being done, size of the area to be treated, the person doing the procedure and which country you are in.
  • No sun for you. You will need to avoid the sun before and after the treatment. If you have a tan you will have to wait till it fades in order to have the treatment.
  • No gym. Since the heat from the laser stays in the body for about 24 hours this means that you cannot go the gym, saunas or take a hot shower. If you do any this you are running a risk having spots on your skin.

Preparing for laser hair removal

Before going in for laser hair removal, trim or shave the area but avoid waxing, plucking or electrolysis for about six weeks prior. This is because laser hair removal targets the hair roots and waxing, plucking or electrolysis removes the hair roots temporarily. If the treatment is being done on the face then remove all makeup and avoid the sun also. Keep off from scrubbing the area or using retinol and glycolic acid for a day or two before and after the treatment.

Recovery

Once the procedure is done you might be given anti-inflammatory lotions or creams, ice packs so as to ease any discomfort that you might have. Your skin will feel and look like it has sunburns for a day or two after the treatment. This is because the dead skin cells are peeling off so the new smooth skin can form. You can wear makeup after a day unless you have blisters which is rare.
