If you’re tired of shaving, plucking, waxing and the other painful and time-consuming methods of removing the unwanted hair, then you’re in luck – you live in an era when technology has progressed enough to help you put these nuisances past you. Laser hair removal hasn’t been a novelty for quite some time yet; thousands of men and women have used it with great success.

If you haven’t yet, but you are considering doing it, here are some things you need to know before scheduling your first appointment.

  1. Laser hair removal doesn’t hurt

This is one of the most frequently asked by our customers here at the Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario: “Is laser hair removal painful?” The answer is: “no”! Laser hair removal does not hurt. Most of the people who have undergone this treatment report that the sensation they feel is that of a rubber band being snapped against the skin. However, if your skin is typically more sensitive, then we will be glad to apply some numbing cream to the area so that you feel no discomfort at all.

  1. You will need more than one treatment for optimal results

Depending on the color of your hair and skin, the thickness of your hair and several other individual factors, you will need between 4 and 10 sessions spread four weeks apart from each other in order to get optimal results – the complete removal of the unwanted hair. Set up your free consultation at the Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario to find out exactly how many sessions you will need.

  1. You will need to steer clear of the sun

Laser hair removal works best on untanned skin. Thus, you will need to avoid sun exposure a month before treatment, during the treatment and a few weeks after you have completed it in order to avoid spotting. Don’t worry, if you use a high SPF cream, you can even go to the beach during your treatment!

  1. Laser hair removal works best on certain types of hair and skin

Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle and destroys it. The easiest way for the laser beam to target it is if there is a significant tone difference between the skin color and the hair color. People with dark hair and light skin have the best results. Still, even the other combination have great results, they might just need more sessions to achieve them.

  1. Laser hair removal is suitable for both men and women

Yes, even men want to get rid of body hair, so why not try laser hair removal? It can be used on any area of the skin, which makes it ideal for everyone.
