Hair removal tips: All you need to know about laser

If you are thinking about removing your hair with a laser, there are some aspects you have to consider.

Laser technology for hair removal can be very effective if you are willing to pay the price. Though I’d like to state first that there is nothing wrong with hair, we are mammals and we do have hair and it’s completely normal. Hair removal should be a matter of preference, you should only do it if you want to.

How does hair removal with laser works?

If you are thinking about removing your hair with a laser, there are some aspects you have to consider.

The energy from the laser targets the pigment in the hair and it is absorbed according to the wavelength of the laser. The darker the hair pigment, the easier it is for the laser to “read” it and eliminate it.

Where the skin is fairest and the hair is darker, it is easier and faster to eliminate the hair, that is why laser works better in the bikini area, lower legs, and underarms.

You shouldn’t expect instant results, it'll take from six to eight sessions to get rid of 90 percent of the hair. However, from my experience, I noticed a significant difference from the first session. The hair was thinner and it completely removed ingrown hairs. By the sixth session, I only shaved once every 3 weeks and my skin was brighter and softer.

Aspects to consider

If your skin is fair and your hair is fair too, it is more difficult to get rid of the hair as the laser cannot properly target the pigment of your hair.

If you have tattoos make sure you tell the dermatologist before, because the lases should not target the area.

You won’t remove your hair forever, you’ll always need a session now and then to maintain the treatment and hormonal changes can make your hair grown again.

You should aim at doing the treatment during the colder seasons, so fall is a great time to start the treatment! Because your skin won’t be as exposed to the sun as in the spring or summer and it is highly important to protect it from the sun if you want to avoid hyperpigmentation after getting laser hair removal.

Always ask a dermatologist before undergoing the treatment, especially if you have sensitive skin.
