5 Tips for Getting the Best Results from Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can be a great way to get rid of unwanted hair on your body. But to get the best results, it’s important to take certain steps both before and after your treatment. Here, we share five tips that can help you get the most out of your laser hair removal sessions.
1. Shave Before Your Treatment
It might be tempting to wax or pluck your hair before going in for laser hair removal, but this can actually make the treatment less effective. Laser hair removal works best when the hair is in its active growth phase and removing it beforehand can disrupt this process. Instead, shave the treatment area the day before your appointment to ensure the laser targets the hair follicles most effectively.
2. Avoid Sun Exposure
Before and after your laser hair removal treatment, it’s important to avoid sun exposure in the treatment area. Sunburn or darkening of the skin because of tanning can interfere with the laser’s ability to target the hair follicle effectively. Be sure to apply sunscreen to the treatment area if you must go out in the sun and avoid sun exposure for several days before and after your appointment.
3. Book Multiple Sessions
While some people may see results after just one laser hair removal session, most will need at least three to seven sessions to achieve optimal results. It’s important to follow your treatment plan as recommended by your DESSNA aesthetician to ensure you get the best results possible. Typically, sessions are spaced out every four to six weeks to target hair follicles in different growth phases.
4. Avoid Certain Medications
Some medications can make your skin more sensitive to the laser used in hair removal, so it’s important to avoid them in the weeks leading up to your treatment. This can include antibiotics, certain acne medications, and even some herbal supplements. Be sure to disclose all medications and supplements you’re taking to your aesthetician before your session.
5. Follow the Aftercare Instructions
After your laser hair removal session, your DESSNA aesthetician will likely provide you with aftercare instructions to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment. This may include avoiding certain activities, using cold compresses or other soothing techniques, and avoiding exposure to heat. Following these instructions carefully can help ensure that you get the best possible results from your laser hair removal treatment.
