What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Did you know hair removal has been a thing since Ancient Egypt? Yes, that’s right, humans used sharp shells to shave. But obviously, things have changed since then.
The history of laser hair removal is very brief, and the laser treatment technique has not been around for that long, not even a century.
Laser epilation or hair removal is a fast, gentle, and efficient way of removing unwanted hair with long-lasting effects. What is most debated is whether hair removal is effective, how laser hair removal works, and what type of laser hair removal is the best choice for you.
If you are about to have your first laser hair removal session, you need to prepare for the hair removal treatment. Just a few precautions and a few steps on your part to make sure you are fully ready before you start with the treatment. To achieve the best possible results, listen to the experts from Sože beauty.
What Laser Hair Removal Treatment looks like?
Laser hair removal treatments are completely safe. Thanks to the advancement of technology itself, we can completely safely treat all skin types, even the most sensitive ones. After the treatment, there are no irritations on the skin, nor any side effects. Compared to other hair removal methods, laser hair removal is a permanent and much more effective solution.
Soze Beauty offers you permanent epilation with a diode laser for laser hair removal treatment.
The diode laser hair removal treatment based on a selected dynamic of light and heat, which passes through the surface to reach the hair follicle itself. The 3 X C alpha laser device uses three wavelengths of 755nm / 808nm / 1064nm. These waves are very efficient and effective in laser hair removal treatment on the melanocytes of the hair follicles, and because the laser light is precisely directed, there is no damaging the surrounding tissue. The diode laser for hair removal we use enables very efficient removal of standard, very dark hairs, but also light and thin ones.
How To Prepare For A Laser Hair Removal Session
Stay away from the sun. Sun exposure and solarium sunbathing are
forbidden, two weeks before and two weeks after the laser hair removal treatment. The reason is the skin must be natural. That is why it is advisable to start with laser hair removal treatments in the fall or winter after your tan completely fades.
Stop waxing, tweezing, or plucking because the laser treatment can only work when the hair follicle is still attached and making it impossible for laser hair removal to be effective.
Shave the night before. This is counterintuitive but it is the best way for efficient hair removal treatment. If the hair is long and unshaved, a lot of energy gets lose along the journey before it gets to the follicle. Plus, long hair can increase the risks of burning the skin, but without any side effects on the body or facial skin.
Check your medication. It is good to know that some medication can not be used in conjunction with laser hair removal treatment. For example, antibiotics increase photosensitivity, and hair follicle, and will make hair removal treatment more painful. Also, only side effects on laser hair removal can be an allergic reaction on the skin.
Important Notes – Overview Laser Hair Removal – Laser Treatment
You still must not pull the hair follicle with tweezers, paste, wax, or electric epilator. Just like with the preparation period, use only surface hair removal methods.
Activities in the gym, sauna, jacuzzi, and pools should be avoided for the period of 24h-48h.
After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and irritated. To eliminate this discomfort, apply it with soothing creams such as panthenol and rinse it with cold water, but avoid perfumed ointments, deodorants, perfumes, and other cosmetics for 24 hours.
You can not expose yourself to the sun for the next 30 days, or hyperpigmentation will appear on the treated areas. We recommend using a sun protection factor of 50 in this period.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, suffer from diabetes or cancer, exposure to laser light is not for you. Also, laser hair removal doesn’t work over areas covered with tattoos, burns, and wounds.
The results of laser hair removal depend on the phototype of the hair, hair follicle and body hair, as well as its pigmentation, and the growth phase on the treated surface. What has considered a satisfactory effect of laser hair removal is that after 6 to 8 treatments, 85% of persistent and unwanted hair is removed without any side effects.
