What To Expect At Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment
When you schedule a laser hair removal appointment, protective shields will be placed over your eyes to prevent injury to your corneas or retinas. The hair that is being treated will be trimmed to just a few millimeters above your skin’s surface by a certified technician. In order to protect the outer layers of your skin, your technicians may add a cold gel or cooling device around the designated area. While there are many different types of lasers that can be used during this cosmetic procedure, low-energy laser beams are among the most popular.
Low-energy laser beams can be adjusted to your skin color as well as your hair color and its thickness. Before the procedure officially begins, your technician will likely perform a test by directing a test pulse of the laser to your chosen area of treatment. This small beam will pass through your skin to be absorbed by the pigment of active-growth hair follicles. Upon penetration, your technicians may observe the area to check for any adverse reactions to the treatment.
Pre Treatment Instructions & Tips
Before you visit the technicians at Spa810 for a laser hair removal appointment, there are a few important things to keep in mind.
- Try to stay out of the sun before your laser hair removal treatment. If you plan on being outside the day before your appointment, make sure to use sunblock on the area of your body you plan on treating.
- Avoid waxing or plucking the treatment area for about two weeks before your appointment.
- The day of your laser removal appointment, give the treatment area a close shave. This will help your technician greatly during the procedure.
- Avoid applying lotion, deodorant, makeup or perfumes to the designated area the day of your appointment.
