The Most Important Things You Should Know about Laser Hair Removal

Winter may be on its way, but in Clearwater, Florida, it’s almost always beach season. Imagine being able to put on a bathing suit or light summer clothes without worrying about the last time that you shaved or waxed your legs, underarms, and bikini area. Laser hair removal is the ultimate way to liberate yourself from the daily burden of hair removal and feel confident and secure in your smooth, hairless skin. If you’re ready to make a change and toss that razor for good, these are the most important facts you should know about laser hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal Safely Targets Individual Hair Follicles

Laser hair removal is a very simple process that uses high intensity laser beams to destroy hair follicles without harming any of the surrounding skin tissue. Since damaged hair follicles cannot continue to actively grow hair, laser hair removal succeeds in reducing or even eliminating the amount of hair on your body. This is an excellent treatment choice for stubborn and difficult areas like the underarms, bikini region, five o’clock shadow, and legs.  

Understand How Your Skin and Hair Color Matters

Early laser hair removal technology could not adequately treat darker skin colors, which are naturally more sensitive to the laser beams. Fortunately, today’s technologies like the Lumenis Lightsheer 810 Diode Laser make it possible to safely treat all skin colors. However, laser hair removal is usually not possible for blonde, gray, red, or white hairs because they lack the pigment needed to attract laser energy and destroy the hair follicle. If you have very light hair but still want to achieve long-lasting hairless skin, you can utilize an electrolysis treatment to permanently banish unwanted hair from your skin.  

Prepare For Your Treatment Strategically

Beginning six weeks before you plan to receive laser hair removal, stop tweezing and waxing the area that will be treated. This will ensure that your hair continues through the growth cycle necessary to respond to the laser. Schedule between 20 minutes to an hour for your appointment, based on the size of your treatment area. Since laser hair removal is a fairly simple process, you won’t need to endure a complicated recovery period. You’ll just notice that your treated hairs look like small black dots, as if stubble is growing in. This is okay! They will be naturally expelled over the course of two weeks to leave you with silky smooth skin.
