Nevertheless, in today’s blog, we’d like to share a few tips with you for maximizing the results you get from laser hair removal. But before we begin…

Are You A Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal can benefit people of most skin and hair types, though the treatment is generally most effective for people whose body hair is significantly darker than their skin, as that difference between skin and hair follicles is what the laser hones in on. Laser hair removal is not as likely to be effective for blondes or women whose body hair is similar in color to their skin.


Five Tips For Maximizing The Effectiveness Of Laser Hair Removal

Shave Before Your Appointment

This might sound counterintuitive, but shaving your unwanted body hair the night or morning before your appointment is a great way to boost the effectiveness of your laser hair removal treatment. The laser targets the hair follicles themselves to destroy them and prevent new hair growth, and shaving new growth from those follicles away helps the laser get at them more effectively.

Come In Clean

We notice that some people will have a drink or even ingest marijuana before their appointment, mistakenly thinking that doing so will numb them to the pain they expect to feel during the appointment.

First of all, don’t worry about pain. Laser hair removal treatments are quick and only involve a mild amount of discomfort — most of our clients describe it as the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against your skin. Not pleasant, but not awful, either.

Secondly, drinking or taking drugs to numb pain is not a good idea. Doing so actually makes your skin more sensitive during the procedure, believe it or not, so it’s best to just come in completely sober and fresh.

Avoid Sun Exposure For A Few Days After Your Appointment

After a laser hair removal treatment, your skin might feel slightly irritated, similar to if you had gotten a mild sunburn in the area(s) where you received treatment. Your skin will be a little more sensitive than normal for a few days after treatment, so it’s best to keep any areas you get treated for laser hair removal out of the sun as much as you can. That’s why it’s most convenient to get laser hair removal treatments completed during winter and spring!

Moisturize The Treated Areas

Another thing you can do after or between laser hair removal treatments is to moisturize the skin you’ve had treated. This won’t boost the results you see, but it will help soothe any remaining irritation you may feel and keep the skin in good health.

Choose An Experienced Laser Hair Removal Specialist

Finally, the best thing you can do to maximize the results you see from laser hair removal is to schedule your treatments at a laser salon that knows what they're doing.
