If you’re tired of shaving so often, it’s time to consider laser hair removal. Small areas like the upper lip and chin are perfect for laser therapy. You can also have larger areas of your body treated, like arms, legs, or chest -- which will require multiple sessions, likely over several months.
Laser energy works best with dark hair and light skin, and the general guideline is that this is a good option for people whose hair is darker than their skin.
Preparing for your session
Before getting started, the laser technician may numb the skin and / or apply a cooling gel to the surrounding area. You’ll be asked to wear protective goggles and to lie down while the laser wand is passed over the skin. Your technician will test a small area first to see how the skin reacts.
After your session and for a couple of days, you may experience some mild swelling and redness, similar to a sunburn. Cold compresses, ice packs, and anti-inflammatory creams will help with this. Hair in the treated area will begin to fall during the weeks following treatment.
Your technician will tell you when you can book additional sessions, although usually these have to spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks apart. Ready to learn more about Laser Hair Removal? Speak to one of our Aesthetix skin specialists!
What happens during and after laser therapy?
This treatment can be safely carried out on people of all skin types. Sensitive skin is usually not a contraindication, and neither are skin conditions like rosacea. However, people following Accutane treatments or those on blood thinning medication aren’t good candidates. The same goes for anyone who’s experiencing an acne flare up. If you enjoy sunbathing or tanning, you’ll be asked to avoid sun exposure for approximately 1 week before treatment day.
One thing to remember is that the results aren’t permanent. In most cases, you will notice the rejuvenating and brightening effect of this treatment for up to three weeks. It’s important to have the right expectations so you can be happy with the results. This treatment is great if you want to show off youthful skin at a special occasion.
