For beauty, you may be considering laser hair removal. This will save you more time and you will have more time to do what you want to do. However, unlike other skin laser treatments, hair removal requires some preparation before laser hair removal treatment.
First, let’s see how laser hair removal works. Using the selective light absorption theory, 808nm can be preferentially absorbed by the melanin of the hair. Then quickly heat the hair shaft and hair follicle to destroy the oxygen supply tissue around the hair follicle.
There are a few final precautions before laser treatment to ensure permanent hair removal. Take time to do these things before starting the laser treatment to get the best results.
While receiving laser treatment, please do not wax, depilate or perform any other hair removal treatment in other ways to remove the hair at the roots: your hair roots need to be present to be absorbed and hit the hair follicles (the whole purpose is to destroy the hair follicles) . If the entire hair shaft is empty, then laser treatment will not work at all. This is one of the main reasons why so many people fail to try diode laser hair removal! There is no problem with shaving because the hair roots are intact. In fact, all you should do is shave and clean the area before laser treatment.
Do not use in darker areas
Do not use on darker skin areas: The skin of the genitals and anus tends to be darker and more sensitive, so it is not recommended to treat these areas directly.
The thickness of the hair
The thickness of the hair may determine how quickly you see the effect: generally, the thicker the hair you plan to treat, the faster you will see the effect. Compared with thinner hair, thicker hair has a larger surface area and contains more pigment (color), and they absorb more laser energy. If you are treating fine hair, you may need to be more patient and perform more treatments to see results. If you are treating fine hair, you should choose a laser system (stronger) instead of an IPL system.
Different people will experience different results: we are all unique, and there are many factors that determine what results you will get. For example, the size and shape of hair follicles, the actual color of the roots and tips are just a few factors that determine how long you can see the effect.
You must be very tired, go to the salon every month to get rid of excess hair. Threading and plucking at one time can become tedious, especially if your hair grows quickly. As summer approaches, most people will get laser hair removal treatment, because who doesn’t like shaved bikini bodies. Hair removal treatment can not only help you remove unwanted hair, but it can also save you a lot of time because you don’t have to run around for weekly waxing. However, before you perform laser hair removal in a salon, you should remember certain things to take full advantage of the treatment.
It is important to keep the treated skin away from sunlight two weeks before laser hair removal. This includes tanning beds and self-tanning. Using them will not only cause skin discoloration after laser treatment, but sunburn can cause excessive pain and blisters. Most laser professionals will not even treat clients with minor sunburns, but will ask them to reschedule appointments. Therefore, if you cannot cover the treatment area outdoors, be sure to use sunscreen every day.
Check your skin tone
The laser is only effective for black or dark hair because it targets the melanin in the hair follicles. If you have gray, light or red hair, the laser will not work. In addition, if you have dark skin, your skin will absorb too much energy. It is recommended to check the color of the hair and skin according to the laser professional chart to see if the laser treatment is suitable for your skin. Check all body parts correctly, you may have light-colored legs but dark bikini lines. So take a look before jumping.
Check your medication
It is important that when you talk to a laser professional, please inform them of all the medications you are taking, including oral and topical medications. Certain medicines may interfere with your laser treatment, reducing its effectiveness. Other medicines can make the skin sensitive and more likely to burn or blisters. If you are taking antibiotics, birth control pills, acne and photosensitizers, you should specifically inform your laser technician. You don’t have to stop taking the medication, but your laser professional will be able to adjust your treatment accordingly and proceed with caution. Also, if you start taking any new medicines, you should make sure to let them know before the next appointment.
Makeup remover or makeup remover
The ingredients in beauty products sometimes affect the effect of laser hair removal and should be removed before each treatment. This includes deodorants, cosmetics, lotions, ointments, and anything else that is applied topically to the area. Just use soap and water to clean the skin to be treated. If you use makeup remover, be sure to rinse the area with water afterwards.
After the hair removal treatment, you cannot expect a miracle overnight. You have to be patient to see the results clearly. If you don’t see any major changes after a seat, please don’t give up and give it some time.
By following these recommendations, you will significantly reduce the risk of side effects caused by laser treatment. These range from mild skin irritation to burns or discoloration. In addition, you are sure to get the most benefit from laser hair removal treatment, and get the effect of life-long benefit.
