Forget about tweezers, waxing, shaving or seeing your cosmetician (at least) once a month! There is no a better, pain-free and hassle-free way to get rid of the unwanted hair for good. The Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario offers laser hair removal at unbeatable prices. But, before you book your first appointment, take a look at the article below so that you know what to expect.
How does laser hair removal work?
During a laser hair removal session, your cosmetologist will use a hand-held device to send light beams on the area to be treated. These light beams penetrate the skin surface and reach the hair follicle destroying it for good. This means that no new hairs will appear in the same follicles. However, if you suffer from PCOS or another hormonal disorder, in time new hairs may appear. Laser hair treatment only removes the existing hair.
How many sessions are required to get rid of the hair completely?
Depending on the area to be treated, the color of your hair, that of your skin and several other individual factors, you will need 5-10 sessions to get rid of the hair completely. The sessions will be approximately four weeks apart in order to allow the new hairs to grow enough so that the laser can detect and treat them. If you want to know precisely how many sessions you will need, the expert cosmetologists at the Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario would be happy to perform a consult and advise you on the best course of treatment.
Am I a suitable candidate for laser hair removal?
Generally, there are no restrictions for laser hair removal, aside from open scars and other skin conditions (it is advisable to consult with your dermatologist before starting this treatment). Laser hair removal is suitable for any man and woman of 18+, but it typically works best on those who have light skin and dark hair. Due to the difference between the color of the skin and that of the hair, the follicle is much easier to locate and neutralize. However, this doesn’t mean that other people don’t get excellent results with laser hair removal – they just might need more sessions.
Are there any special preparations required for laser hair removal?
Two-three weeks before your first session and in-between sessions, you must never pluck your hair. Tweezers and waxing are completely forbidden, but you can always shave. Since the treatment targets hair follicles, they need to be intact; the more time without plucking your hairs goes by, the more hairs can be treated in a single session. Plus, you will always need to wear a strong SPF lotion. UVA/UVB rays can cause spotting on the skin that has recently received a laser treatment. Other than these, you don’t need any special precautions.
