How should I prepare for the Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Before undergoing laser hair removal treatmenat patients need to shave the parts to be treated at daybreak on the appointment day. The hair follicles can be still be visible, but removing the long hair can be painful during this procedure. The area to be treated with laser hair removal should be newly cleaned and left free from any makeup, scents, antiperspirants, creams, ointments, and oils. Parts to be treated should be as light as possible. Waxing eliminates the roots of the hair sacs reducing the effectiveness of the hair removal. Make sure not to bleach any hair that will be treated with the laser.
What should I expect during Laser Hair Removal?
Once the individual has the area ready to be treated, the laser machine will be regulated depending on a number of factors such as the thickness, color, and location of the hair as well as the skin tone. The laser or source of light will determine if you or the laser hair removal specialist will need to use suitable eye shields. It’s also essential to guard the outer layers of your skin with a cooling gel or a special freshening device. This can assist the laser light to infiltrate the skin. Afterwards, the specialist will direct a beam of light to the area to be treated and supervise it for several minutes to check if the adjustments are correct and check for bad reactions. When the procedure has been completed, the specialist will recommend using anti-inflammatory ointment, ice packs, or cool water in order to alleviate any discomfort. Your next procedure, which generally occurs within the following four to six weeks, will be scheduled later. You should continue with treatment as long as the hair is still growing.
How long does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Many factors can affect how the patient responds to treatment. It all depends on the laser used, hair and skin type, and the presence of any medical condition. In several cases, permanent results can be accomplished in about six to eight laser treatments. Sporadic touch-up laser treatments may be necessary in the future since not all hair is at the same point in the growth cycle; thus, some hair will not receive the death signal and will continue to grow. To guarantee the best level of effectiveness, each patient should make the best laser hair removal selection for his or her skin type. When a hair sac has been damaged, it may be known to be sterile, and can certainly not generate a hair again. Over the progression of the treatment many hair follicles may be damaged. Have in mind that some prescription drugs can stimulate hair growth.Laser Hair Removal for men

Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
Most individuals are able to easily handle this treatment procedure. However, the amount of discomfort the patient might feel mainly depends on the type of skin and sensitivity of the person.

Individuals who have coarse hair also generally experience more discomfort. However, after each treatment session the hair tends to become lighter or thinner which facilitates a quicker removal.
