If you’re thinking of getting laser hair removal, there are a few things that you should know before you start. Here are our top 5 questions that you should ask your laser hair removal specialist before you start your treatments:
- What type of technology do you use?
Knowing what type of technology your laser hair removal specialist uses should be at the top of your list of things to ask. This is because you want to know how effective their technology is. You do not want to be going under a laser that transmits harmful rays or even rays that don’t help remove hair. You don’t want to put yourself in a vulnerable position, especially if this is your first time receiving the hair removal treatments.
- What should I expect from laser hair removal?
This is important because not all skin types and hair types are the same. Each person’s skin and hair is different than the next, therefore it is important to know that what a friend may have experienced in two sessions, may take 5 sessions for you. It depends on your skin type, your hair type and how well your hair responds to the treatments.
- What can I do in between appointments?
When asking what you can do in between laser hair removal appointments, it is important to listen carefully to what your specialist has to say. If they say nothing – you probably should take your business elsewhere. However, at IGBeauty, we recommend to all of our laser hair removal clients that they exfoliate every time they shower in between appointments. We also recommend that you maintain your sessions every 4-8 weeks to ensure your hair follicles are being treated in a timely manner. Timing is very important in laser hair removal, as the roots of the hair must be ready in order for the treatment to work as effectively as possible.
- How many sessions do I need?
Like we said before, everyone is different. Sometimes, laser hair removal may only take a few sessions, or it may take a lot. It depends on your hair and skin type. The best scenario for laser hair removal is when the hair is dark enough for the laser to find and remove the root. As long as the hair is darker than the skin, it will work effectively. As well, the hair must be long enough for the laser to find it. We recommend to all of our clients getting laser hair removal that they wax their hair before their appointments. hair must be shaved 12-24 hours before treatment
- Where can I get laser hair removal?
The final question you should ask your laser hair removal specialist is where you can get laser hair removal. It is important that you know where you can and cannot get laser hair removal. However, at IGBeauty, we are able to use our laser hair removal on most areas of your body. The most common areas that receive laser hair removal are the underarms, legs, sideburns and back.
