Those who are looking for a permanent solution for unnecessary hairs on body often looks for laser hair removal.
This procedure uses intense heat from a laser to damage the root of hair that is follicles. It prevents hair growth in future. It is effective on Underarms, Legs, Face and Arms.
This is the most invasive cosmetic procedure that is done in office.
Schedule a Consultation:
Laser Treatment is considered a cosmetic procedure. It is best to think as a medical procedure.
In other words, a patient only has a licensed and certified expert therapist will do it for you.
The reputable clinics and consultation require one for every patient. During your session laser technician will be provided to you. This is all the information you need to determine if laser hair removal is right for you.
Ask lots of Questions about Laser Hair Removal:
Ask as many questions as possible before any consultation. That way you can gather all the information you need to make an informed decision.
During your first meeting you and the technician will discuss all the potentials of treatment. Mostly therapist will ask you about your medical history. You need to make sure if you have any skin conditions you have in the past and if your skin is prone to scarring.
When the therapist is done asking you about the questions, it will be your turn to ask them questions. Ask basic question like how many sessions you will need. How the procedure will occur so that you know what to expect. Ask them how long will it take and what type of tools they will use.
Discuss about the potential risks too. As some people experience irritation, scarring and pigment changes in the skin.
Last but not the least, ask how much it will cost and if payment plans or specials are available.
Think about it Repeatedly:
Before going through any laser treatment, you should be sure about it. After that you can book your first treatment session at the end of your consultation. But if you are hesitant take a day or two to think over it again.
Most important factor is that you have to think whether you can afford it or not. Always weight your options and decide if its really worth it before committing.
Follow Pre-Treatment Orders:
Your therapist will instruct you on what to do before your first session you must follow those orders closely. Failure to do so can affect your results in future. In some cases force you to reschedule your appointment for future days.
What to do before Hair Removal Session:
Before your first treatment there are even more guidelines you will need to follow.
For several days before each session avoid any medication such as blood thinners, NSAID’s or Pain Relievers.
In the days immediately leading up to your first treatment, there are even more guidelines you’ll need to follow.
The day before your session shave the treatment area. If your technician does not mention this ask them if it is mandatory or not.
Mentally Prepare yourself:
You should be mentally prepared yourself that it is not completely painless but it does not hut for most people. However, if you are overly sensitive to pain, you should prepare yourself for some minor pain.
Before your first session make sure that you are 100% comfortable about getting the procedure. If you have any doubts at all, take some extra time to think again before going under the laser.
The effects of laser hair removal treatments are different for everyone. This varies from person skin type and color.
