Laser Hair Removal Tips

Today will take a look at another trend. Only this time it is not a fashion one but more like beauty and cosmetics. There is no doubt it is a trend as more and more people take advantage of the procedure and make their lives so much easier. Probably you have an idea already that I am talking about laser hair removal. For all of you just hearing the ads on the radio but never actually looking into what kind of procedure it is, let me give you some more information. It is available since the mid 90s. The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL), the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue.* The procedure has become the preferred way of hair removal because of its efficiency and being the only method out there for permanent removal.

A few facts you may not know: multiple procedures are required (usually around 6). There should be at least 4-5 weeks time frame between the sessions. The procedure is not painful at all (laser treatments have improved a lot in the last few years). You must not expose the treated area on the sun or take very hot baths. Always use sun block. You may shave – isn’t that amazing? It is actually recommended that you shave a few days before treatment as opposed to waxing where you need to wait for the hair to grow.
