Eliminating Unwanted Hair on Your Face and Body With Laser Technology
Getting rid of unwanted hair is part of good hygiene, but shaving, plucking, and waxing are painful hair removal methods that take up a lot of time for many clients. Luckily, there are minimally invasive electrolysis hair removal or laser treatments that can help remove unwanted hairs and prevent them from growing in the treated for months.
IPL uses light to reduce hair growth. It’s different from electrolysis treatments that remove the hair using electric current, but IPL also results in long-lasting hair removal in the treated area.
Broad spectrum light from the ProWave handpiece travels harmlessly through the skin until it hits the hair follicle, where most of the melanin (or color) is. The light is converted into heat energy, which destroys the follicle and most of the hair shaft. The dead hair is then pushed to the surface of the skin and eventually falls out after 1 to 3 weeks.
5 Ways to Take Care of Your Skin After Laser Hair Removal Treatment
- Avoid applying makeup, lotion, deodorant, or harsh skin care products on the treated area for the first 24 hours.
- Bumps and redness are normal for the first few hours, but they eventually subside. Use a cold compress to soothe the pain.
- Gently cleanse the treatment area with a mild soap for the first 48 hours after the treatment.
- Avoid scratching or picking on the skin of the treatment area. Don’t use any other hair removal method in between laser treatments to achieve the best results.
- Avoid direct and prolonged sun exposure to prevent the risk of skin discoloration. Apply a high SPF sunscreen first before heading out.
FAQs About Laser Technology and Permanent Hair Reduction
Q: Does it hurt?
A: This depends on the patient’s level of pain tolerance, but might be some slight discomfort during the treatment – like a rubber band flicking against the skin. Talk to our staff about numbing options to make the treatment more comfortable for you.
Q: Is laser treatment safe for patients with darker skin color?
A: Like laser tattoo removal, laser hair removal also works better for patients with fair skin complexion and dark hair color. Patients with dark skin color might be at risk of skin coloration issues, so consult with a laser technician first to see if it’s the best option for you.
Q: What can I expect during my appointment?
A: During your appointment, you will lie down comfortably as a thin layer of conductive lotion will be applied on your treatment areas. Most patients say they occasionally feel a mild snapping sensation, especially in extremely sensitive sections or over a bony area. After we’re done, excess lotion will be wiped away and a rich, soothing moisturizer or calming hydrocortisone cream will be applied.
Q: What kind of results can I expect?
A: Results may vary, depending on what areas we are treating and how many sessions you have already completed. In the first few sessions, hairs usually take 3 to 4 weeks before starting a new growth cycle. The more treatments you have already had, the longer the time between sessions will be.
It’s important to come in every 4 to 8 weeks, depending on the area being treated because it will ensure the most effective, long-lasting results. Patients need at least 6 to 8 treatments to see a significant hair reduction. Once-a-year touch-ups are also necessary for maintenance.
