When to Consider Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

Shaving is very annoying, and it takes a lot of time, especially when it comes to shaving your legs. If you don’t shave, then you have that annoying prickling feeling when you’re wearing jeans. Or what about your underarms? As a woman, if you don’t shave your underarms, not only does your shirt feel uncomfortable, but you also feel nervous to lift up your arms because you don’t want everyone to see your stubble. Fortunately, there are better solutions that are available to individuals who are looking to get rid of their unwanted hair. A good option is laser hair removal. There are so many positive benefits that come from using this procedure. It is not surprising that more and more people are turning to it.

Although the results of laser hair removal may seem magical, they’re really not. There is a science behind the procedure. During a laser hair removal treatment, laser energy is converted into heat as it passes through the skin. The darker pigment of your hair follicles attracts this heat, and it damages the hair follicle. When the hair follicle is damaged, it is not able to produce hair. If it does produce hair in the future, the hairs are thinner and they are less plentiful, which is a good thing.

In order to get the most out of your laser hair removal treatments, it’s recommended that you stay out of the sun. If you are sunburned or if you have an extreme tan, laser hair removal may not work as well for you. So, if you’re planning on having laser hair removal done, you need to take some easy steps to prepare. Our team will make sure to provide you with these steps during your initial consultation.

Contrary to popular belief, when you have laser hair removal done, it’s not better for you to let your hair grow out. It is true that when you go for a wax, you let your hair grow out beforehand and then you have it pulled out. For laser hair removal, it’s oftentimes best for you to shave prior to the procedure. Remember, the lasers target the pigment in your hair follicle. The only thing that needs to be there is your follicle for the treatment to work. That being said, while it is okay to shave before the laser hair removal procedure, it is not a good idea to wax or pluck. This is because these methods actually pull out the hair follicle.

There are so many great reasons to opt for laser hair removal at Old Town Medspa. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation at our office in Chicago!

Maureen is exceptional at what she does. When I first started lazer, she relaxed me and described the process. Each time I come, she makes me feel at ease and carries on conversation during the process so it is not as painful. I would love to continue seeing her for other services.
