Laser Hair Removal: How Does It Work?

With The Laser Studio’s treatments, waves of secure and efficient laser energy penetrate your hair follicles deeply. The normal growth cycle of the follicles is altered when they warm up. Those hairs that are being treated eventually fall out on their own after a few weeks.

The hair that grows back is finer, thinner, and lighter this time. The amount of hair that grows back gets less and smaller with each treatment until it ultimately stops growing at all. The development of hair may be significantly reduced practically anywhere with laser hair removal, including your legs, arms, underarms, stomach, back, and neck, to mention a few.

Pre–Care: What to Do Before Your Appointment

  1. Prior to your visit, the area must be shaved.

The tighter the shave, the better treatment you will get. If this is your first procedure, leave a tiny patch of hair so the doctor may examine it. Your laser artist will trim it before starting the procedure.

When using a bikini service, avoid shaving the area where you wish to leave the hair.

  • Avoid using any creams, cosmetics, or antiperspirants on the day of your appointment on the area being treated.
  • 3 days or more before your appointment, avoid being in the sun (& 3 days after).
  • Spray tan products should not be used at least two weeks before your treatment in order to avoid any injury.
  • Don’t drink more than two alcoholic beverages within 24 hours of your therapy.
  • Skip waxing, threading, and hair removal for as least 4 weeks. Shaving is a possibility for you.

Important information:

(1) Women who are nursing, attempting to get pregnant, or who are pregnant cannot get laser therapy.

(2) Clients who are menstruation will not have bikini laser procedures done on them.

What to Do Following the Treatment?

  1. Redness and bumps after treatment are common.

Following your operation, redness and pimples at the treatment site are common; these side effects might last for up to two hours or more. For a few of hours after treatment, the area usually feels sunburned. You need to use a cold compress if the sensitivity doesn’t go away. Any crusting should be treated with an antibiotic cream. The soreness may last longer and be more severe in those with darker colored skin.

  • Gently scrub the treated area clean.

You can gently wash the treated area with a light soap. Instead of massaging the skin for the first 48 hours, pat it dry.

  • For the first 24 hours, avoid using any lotion, moisturiser, or deodorant.

Keep the treated area clean and dry. If more redness or irritation develops, postpone using moisturiser, underarm deodorant, and cosmetics until the irritation has passed.

  • After your treatment, dead hair will start to fall out 5 to 30 days later.

Stubble will develop between 5 to 30 days following the treatment date when the hair follicles release their dead hair. It is typical, and they will rapidly fall out.

  • To hasten hair loss, exfoliate.

Hair loss may take place anywhere between 5 and 30 days following the therapy, and this may seem as new hair growth. The dead hair forcing its way out of the follicle, not fresh hair growth, is what is seen.

  • The sun should be avoided.
  • To lessen the possibility of dark or bright spots for two months, avoid being in the sun. Throughout the course of therapy and for one to two months after, always wear sunscreen (spf 25 or above).
  • You shouldn’t pluck, scrape, wax, thread, or tweeze the region.

The treated skin should not be picked or scratched. Avoid using any hair removal methods or instruments other than shaving on the targeted area while you are receiving laser treatments as this will prevent you from achieving the best results.

  • Hair growth varies.

After 6–9 sessions, most people will, on average, reach a level of hairlessness happy where they won’t even check for stubble.
