You’ll be surprised to learn that most patients say it’s less painful than waxing! If you can handle having a rubber band pinged at your skin, and if you can handle having multiple hairs pulled out of your skin at once, you can definitely handle laser hair removal.
We can provide painless hair removal at Bee Laser thanks to a built-in cryo cooling system combined with a Zimmer cooling device, which reduces and soothes the rubber band sensation. Hair removal without pain? Please, yes.
While the treatment is not painful, if you do not follow pre- and post-treatment recommendations, you may cause yourself unnecessary pain, so our advice? Follow everything we’re about to tell you with zeal.
WHAT PREPARE YOU FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
AVOID EXPOSURE TO THE SUN. To prepare for Laser Hair Removal Treatment Harrow, avoid direct sun exposure for 10-14 days. Now, with less sun and a winter wardrobe, it’s ideal for Full Body Laser Hair Removal Treatment, especially if you’re going for full-body laser hair removal.
Shave the treatment area 24 hours before your appointment: Unlike waxing, you won’t have to feel like a yeti in the days leading up to your appointment. Shaving is essential before Laser Hair Removal Treatment Harrow because the laser will singe any hair above the surface and burn your skin.
You must shave the treatment area exactly 24 hours before your appointment. Shaving immediately prior to your Laser Hair Removal Treatment In Middlesex session may irritate your skin and make it more sensitive to the laser.
STOP WAXING OR PLUCKING 4 WEEKS BEFORE
Waxing or plucking removes hair from the root, and laser Hair Removal Treatment Harrow must contain hair for it to work. Shaving is preferable to Laser Hair Removal Treatment In Middlesex because it only removes hair on the surface and leaves the hair follicle intact.
OBTAIN A PATCH TEST
A patch test is required prior to your laser hair removal appointment to determine whether you are a viable candidate for the treatment and which laser setting is most effective on your hair and skin type.
CAFFEINE SHOULD BE AVOIDED
Caffeine makes the skin more sensitive to pain, so painless laser hair removal is unlikely. So, do yourself a favour and avoid anything with caffeine for 24 hours before your session.
WHAT SHOULD You DO AFTER LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
USE COOL COMPRESSIONS. The treated area may feel hot and slightly tender after laser hair removal, so keeping a cold compress nearby will help to reduce the heat and temporary swelling.
AVOID POTENT SKINCARE INGREDIENTS
We love potent skincare ingredients just as much as the next skincare junkie, but to avoid irritation, we recommend avoiding your fix for a few days after laser hair removal. If you’ve had full-body laser hair removal, this includes body lotions and scrubs.
STAY OUT OF THE DIRECT SUNLIGHT
You must avoid sun exposure for 10-14 days after laser hair removal because your skin will be more sensitive and prone to burning.
STAY AWAY FROM SWEATY ACTIVITIES
Take a day off from the gym; you deserve it. Oh, and sweat contains bacteria that can irritate sensitive hair follicles after laser hair removal, leading to an infection or rash.
Laser hair removal works by cutting off blood flow to the hairs, eventually preventing them from growing. When you wax or pluck your hair, blood flow increases in the area, allowing it to regrow – the exact opposite of what you want.
SAVE TIME BY SHAVING IN BETWEEN SESSIONS
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL BE REQUIRED?
Typically, 6-8 treatments at 6-8 week intervals are required for the body, and 4-6 for the face.
YAG AND ALEXANDRITE LASER HAIR REMOVAL VS IPL
In London, the most common types of laser hair removal are IPL and a combination of Nd: YAG and Alexandrite.
IPL laser hair removal systems are suitable for a wide range of skin types because they can be tailored to skin tone, hair type, and treatment area.
Furthermore, they can target large areas, allowing you to put down the dreaded shaver much faster.
While it may expedite the process, it is not as effective as Nd: YAG laser hair removal in London. IPL laser hair removal is not recommended for darker skin tones or skin that has been exposed to a lot of sunlight because it can cause hyperpigmentation.
ALEXANDRITE AND ND:YAG
We use the best laser hair removal technique at Bee Laser, which consists of a combination of Nd:YAG and Alexandrite lasers to treat all skin tones and most hair types.
Both Nd:YAG and Alexandrite laser hair removal devices can treat larger areas with longer wavelengths, requiring fewer energy boosts and making the procedure more comfortable.
However, fine hair can be difficult to reach with a Nd:YAG laser hair removal device, which is where Alexandrite lasers come in to help.
Hair will become finer and fewer in number with each session until it stops growing entirely. Hair-free results can last up to ten years with top-up treatments every few years, depending on your hair cycle.
IS LASER REMOVAL VALUED?
While laser hair removal can be performed on both men and women, a recent study found that women spend half of the days of their lives shaving their legs! Men who shave every day will not be far behind. So, don’t walk, but run to Bee Laser today to start saving valuable minutes.
