To sooth the skin, you can apply Aloe Vera after the treatment. SPF 20 is good for skin and is allowed to be applied.
Laser hair removal works by treating the roots in the hair follicle. For laser to work best, do not tweeze, pluck or wax any hair on the area to be treated, to preserve the roots.Laser yields best results if it is performed on pale skin and so avoid tanning before and after the course of treatment, to keep the skin pale.
Although plucking, tweezing and waxing should be refrained from but shaving is fine, since it does not remove the roots of hairs. In fact, clients should arrive for the treatment after shaving the body part or else they will be additionally charged for that.
Unlike body parts that must be shaved before the session, facial areas do not need to be shaved or clipped. This is because facial hairs are easily manageable by the therapist himself. Although it happens very rarely, but in case of a blister or burn, apply a vitamin E capsule to sooth the skin. Bursting the blister can leave a spot on the skin, so do not squeeze the blister. Also refrain from stepping out in the sun, as sunshine increases chances of pigmentation that can make the laser therapy less effective.
In case of any post treatment concern, contact the clinic.
How many sessions are required for removing facial and body hair?
If a customer wants to get rid of hair from body areas, they need to undergo at least six to eight sessions of laser. These sessions can ensure up to 90% permanent reduction in hair growth. On the other hand, customers may have to visit the clinic 10-15 times for each laser session, if they wish to get rid of facial hair. This is because facial hair responds slowly to this therapy. Fine facial hairs are not treatable with laser. Electrolysis works best on such hair.
Laser works best on coarse and dark hair, and is less effective on medium to light brown hair. Although it works for both types, but results are more promising in the former case.
