Laser hair removal is the most effective and best long-term solution to get rid of unwanted hair on the body. Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body and lasts virtually an eternity after treatments are completed. Following these five tips will ensure you get the best results from your treatment process.

Preparation is Everything

Appropriate preparation for each treatment is essential for patients interested in the best results in the shortest amount of time. The first thing to do is book all your appointments in advance. When you plan your appointments in advance, you ensure proper recovery time between treatments and can plan other life events around your treatment process. It also gives you a visual timeline for when you can expect to achieve final results.

Shave the Day Before Treatment

Shaving the day before treatment is recommended for a less painful and more effective procedure. The laser targets any hair follicles on the skin, if your hair isn't short enough,
treatments may hurt more than normal and the process may be less effective. With that being said, you must shave as opposed to waxing. When you wax, you remove the hair follicle completely and the laser won’t be zapping anything.

Let the Hairs Grow

Let the hair grow? Isn’t the idea to get rid of the hair? In between treatments, let the hair in the area grow out and note areas that hair is and isn't growing back. Let your esthetician know where hair is and isn't growing back so that the treatments can accurately be adjusted!

Exfoliate Away the New Hair

Naturally, hair will try to grow back after the procedure and you might think the process isn’t working. Trust us, when you exfoliate the area with new hair growth, each hair will be too weak and simply fall off!

Pay Attention to where You go for Treatments

In terms of laser hair removal, you have quite a few options. From at-home treatments to salons, all of the options can be overwhelming. How do you choose? Does it even matter? It absolutely matters where you go for laser hair removal. The process is not as simple as shaving and even small errors can have consequences. The best way to minimize risk is to do some research and find a reputable salon to conduct your treatments.
