LASER HAIR REMOVAL: PRE- AND POST-CARE INSTRUCTIONS GUIDE

Updated: Sep 14, 2022

Protecting your skin before and after your treatment with Elegant Laser & Aesthetics skincare informational guides


Tired of tweezing, waxing, and shaving every other day to remove unwanted hair? Well, we have an Elegant Solution for you! Laser hair removal is one of the most common non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the US used by Dermatologists to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively.

Laser hair removal uses a precision laser in a process called selective photothermolysis to heat up the hair follicles that have a lot of pigment (color) destroying them to inhibit future growth of unwanted hair.


What to Expect:


While results are visible immediately, we want to be clear that laser hair removal results are not permanent. Allow me to explain why - a hair follicle has to be in its growth stage for the procedure to work. Follicles are in different stages at different times, so most people need multiple (usually 6-8) laser treatments.

Some hair will grow back, but it’s usually much lighter and thinner than before. Most people see about 10-25% reduction in hair growth right after the first treatment. After all your sessions, you may not have any new hair growth for several months or years.

The procedure may take anywhere from a few minutes up to an hour depending on the size of the area. The results of laser hair removal last much longer than any other hair removal technique with few treatments, lesser pain, and reduced risk of growing ingrown hairs.



Patient Education:


PREPARATION: PRE-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

We recommended our clients to start prepping their skin for laser treatments at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Avoid excess sun exposure such as tanning. Shave the targeted area that will be treated about 2-3 days prior to your laser session. The hair should not be longer than a grain of rice to effectively be able to remove the hair from its roots.

BEFORE:

Once your laser sessions begin, we strongly advise our clients to avoid threading, waxing, tweezing, or plucking of the hair in the treated areas.

DURING:

During the treatment, our laser specialist will provide you with protective goggles to cover your eyes from the laser flashes. While treating the skin with the laser, it might feel like a series of stings.

AFTER: POST-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

As the laser is applied heat to the hair follicles, you may smell something burnt. But rest assured that this is normal. Some people may experience some redness, swelling, slight burn-like sensation after their first laser session. We recommend using a cold compress over the affected areas and allow the skin to return to normal. Do not overexpose the treated areas to sunlight, otherwise you may return to normal activities without any precautions.
