Hands Down, The Easiest Post On Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is generally a safe and effective treatment for ridding yourself of unwanted hair growth. You can consider this treatment for the hair on armpits, bikini line, face, and other body parts. If you have been thinking about this treatment lately, this post will help you understand this treatment better.

Laser hair removal, as the term itself suggests, is a laser driven treatment wherein a doctor or technician leverages the laser technology to retard hair growth on a selected body part. Highly concentrated beam of light is aimed at the selected site; pigment in the hair follicle absorbs that light and destroys the hair. It is important to know here that one session of laser might not suffice; you may need up to eight or nine sessions for seeing the complete results.

Just before the treatment, the unwanted hair on the selected body part would be trimmed to a few millimeters.

During the treatment, both you and the technician would wear appropriate eyewear. The technician will give a pulse of light and examine the skin for several minutes to ensure that the best settings are used. Post treatment, you’ll be given ice-bags, anti-inflammatory creams or cold water to withstand the discomfort or skin irritation.

For a day or two after the laser hair removal treatment, your skin may feel like sunburnt. Cold compresses and moisturizers would, however, ease the discomfort. Last, but certainly not the least, you’d be required to avoid going out in the sun for a couple of weeks both before and after the treatment as the sun exposure tends to reduce the effectiveness of the laser treatment.

We’re done for this post. But there is a lot more that we want to share with you about laser hair removal and other cosmetic treatments. We’d cover all that in our future posts; so make sure you check out this blog regularly.
