How To Make the Laser Hair Removal Process More Effective

There are certain tips that you can incorporate in order to facilitate this. These include the following:-

Exfoliate:
You can apply an exfoliating scrub at least thrice a week on the surface that has undergone a laser hair removal process. Exfoliating will allow the shedding process to proceed unhindered.

Cutting or shaving the re-growing hair:
You can cut or shave, but do not wax or tweeze. You need these hair follicles for the laser to work on them during your next appointment after the first laser hair removal treatment.

Use the sunscreen:
Continue using the sunscreen after the first laser hair treatment procedure. This is mainly to avoid tanning and create the right skin-hair contrast that will allow the laser tom to work on it. Continue reading How To Make the Laser Hair Removal Process More Effective

What to Expect After a Laser Hair Removal Treatment

In a consumerist culture where we are increasingly conscious of our self-image and how the significant others perceive us, having excessive hair on our bodies can be a big turn off and also a hindrance to our career and relationship prospects. But going hair-free doesn’t have to be a painful affair. Hair-free can also be pain-free thanks to the modern advances in the laser hair removal treatment procedures. But what can you really expect from a laser hair removal procedure?

Laser hair removal is certainly a very painless option compared to other treatment techniques such as waxing which can be really painful. Besides, as you attend subsequent laser hair removal treatments, the rate of re-growth will be slower and sparser. The hair also gets finer until it completely stops growing as the roots of the hair follicles are completely destroyed. Continue reading What to Expect After a Laser Hair Removal Treatment

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Laser hair removal has grown into one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the recent years. Most of us have some hair that is positioned at the “wrong” place. If this hair is too excessive and body part too exposed, it can cause a great deal of embarrassment. Laser hair removal provides a very precise and effective technique of getting rid of this unwanted hair. It is a perfect alternative to many other hair removal techniques which you are most currently deploying such as frequent shaving of hair, waxing, or tweezing. At the most basic level, the laser hair removal treatment works by beaming concentrated light on the hairy body part which are subsequently absorbed by the dark hair follicles hence destroying them.

Laser hair removal is widely applied in removing unwanted hair from areas of the body such as the legs, the arms, the bikini lines, the underarms and many other parts of the body. It is an effective and highly precise treatment technique. There are many other benefits that you can derive from the laser hair removal treatments. These include the following:- Continue reading The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Facts about Laser Hair Removal

Grappling with excessive hair growth in all those unwanted places? This is always an issue for men and women. With too much hair in all the inconvenient places in our bodies, we are likely to spend an excessive amount of money and time trying to remove the hair in places such as the arms and legs, and even on our faces.

There are traditional hair removal techniques that we can adopt, but these are not only inconvenient and time-consuming but many a times, painful. Shaving off the hair has an even more adverse effect on your skin. It not only leads to flakiness, but it can also cause excessive dryness in the skin.

Then there is the dreaded waxing procedure for hair removal. It is an invasive technique that will no doubt cause some problems on the skin such as skin irritation and ingrown hair. The threading technique of hair removal is not an effective one if you are grappling with larger areas of the body. The last solution is that of the depilatory creams but these too have their side effects and can leave ugly patches on your skin surface after the hair removal procedure.
