Laser Hair Removal: What Should I Expect?

Laser Hair Removal Boston, MAEven though it’s getting cooler and sweaters are becoming a regular fashion choice, it’s no excuse to stop taking care of yourself. Those sweaters hide a myriad of sins, which is probably why so many of us add a few more pounds to ourselves around this time of year. But other than a little extra weight, we also understand that shaving may take a back seat to other, more pressing concerns.

But the fact is, you may still need to shave this winter. Whether you’re hitting the hot tub after a few ski runs, or you’re just headed on vacation, you may find yourself with hairy legs or a hairy back that needs attention.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

No laser treatment is able to completely rid of hair in one treatment. This has nothing to do with the power of the laser, even though new lasers are coming out every few years. Actually, it has everything to do with your hair. Different hairs grow in different cycles and the laser can only target hair at a certain point in its growth cycle, which means that you will need multiple treatments to fully rid yourself of hair in a specific area.

How do I prepare for treatment?

You may need to skip tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis for around six weeks before we begin laser hair removal treatments. This allows the hair to grow normally and for the skin to adjust and prepare for treatment.

What do I do afterwards?

Taking care of your skin is key to having great results and avoiding complications. Prevent skin that has been treated away from the sun, which can damage newly sensitive skin.
