Get Ready for Laser Hair Removal
- Posted on: Jul 15 2015
It’s possible to remove unwanted hair from your body without the hassles of waxing, tweezing, or plucking. A cosmetic treatment known as laser hair removal is the perfect solution to your hairy woes. Laser technology has helped improve many cosmetic treatments, including hair removal.
In order to obtain the best possible results from your hair removal procedure, every patient should intently follow pre-treatment instructions provided by your doctor. Here are some tips to prepare you for your upcoming procedure.
What to avoid before the procedure
There are certain practices that one should avoid before undergoing laser hair removal. For one, the patient should avoid tanning for at least one month before the appointment. It is also better to avoid waxing for two to four weeks prior to the procedure. And don’t pluck or bleach unwanted hair, as it can decrease the effectiveness of your laser hair removal procedure.
Shave the area you wish to treat
It is recommended to shave the treatment site before the day of your appointment. Having longer hair during a laser hair removal procedure can become painful, and shaving can help decrease discomfort while the procedure is being done.
Follow your doctor’s orders
During your consultation with your doctor, you will be given more specific instructions that you should follow in order to have a successful treatment. Following instructions religiously will go a long way in terms of results and recovery.
