Now that you’re ready to transform your skin with laser hair removal, you’re probably wondering how to best prepare for your treatment. Is it better to let your body hair grow out before lasers work on reducing it forever, or should you get a nice clean shave right before your treatment? If you answered the latter, you’re correct. Here’s why it’s best to shave on the same day as your treatment.
WHY YOU SHOULD SHAVE BEFORE LASER HAIR REMOVAL
With a clean shave right before your treatment, the lasers will be able to easily locate your hair follicles without wasting energy on hairs that have already grown out. You also won’t have to worry about the lasers burning off your hairs either. Shaving should help to make your laser hair removal treatment as efficient and trouble-free as possible.
Ditch your old razor for a shiny new one before your laser treatment. New razors will ensure that you’re not leaving any bacteria behind on your skin, keeping it clean and ready for the procedure.
HOW THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT WORKS
Time and time again, laser hair removal has proven to be the best way to permanently reduce the hair on your body. There’s very little downtime, not much pain and very few treatments required to get your skin to be less hairy forever.
So how do lasers manage to achieve this? The answer is with light. Lasers send highly concentrated light beams to your hair follicles, destroying your hair’s roots without affecting the surrounding areas. The hairs that are targeted can’t grow back, leaving your body smooth and hairless.
IS THE HAIR GONE FOREVER?
Though some studies suggest that hair loss may be permanent, long-term laser hair removal studies are still being completed. We have to wait until those scientific studies are finished to claim that hair removal is permanent. What we currently know for sure is that laser hair removal treatments cause permanent reduction in body hair, leaving you with less hair to deal with for the rest of your life!
