In the following article we’ll mention a crucial topic that’s “Laser hair removal tips” let’s discuss in the article given below:
1. Avoid Sun Exposure
We cannot treat you if you have had sun exposure within a time frame of 2 weeks of your laser hair removal treatment as laser will sizzle any pigment on your skin. This means that if you are sunburned, or even just tanned, you may need to reschedule your appointment. If you’re a bit of a beach babe or surfer guy, you may wish to start your treatments during the winter months to avoid any inconvenience.
2. A Fake Tan’s a Safe Tan (unless you’re getting Laser!)
The same as with a real tan, we can’t treat you if you have a fake tan either. So it’s time to embrace your inner Emma Stone and rock the pale look on the day of your appointment. Tip: Balense Next Generation +SRC Cleanser is actually a great product to help in the removal of any fake tan.
3. Shave, Don’t Wax!
The root of the hair must be present in the follicle for the laser to actually identify or spot it, so avoid waxing, epilating, use of depilatory creams or anything that might actually disturb the hair follicle. Instead, shave the area to be treatment 12-14 hours before your set appointment time. A clean shave with a really sharp razor is must, we don’t want the laser targeting longer hairs that sit above the skin, as this runs the risk or chances of causing burns.
4. Skip The Moisturiser
When it comes to the day of your treatment you need to make sure you are going au natural on your body. You should make sure your skin is absolutely clean and also completely product free, don’t even moisturise or apply any deodorant. This goes for 24 hours after your appointment, too (except for recommended products)!
5. Be Honest At Your Consultation
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment and as such you need to feel that you’re in safe hands (FYI, our hands are exceptionally safe). Our qualified laser technicians use only medical-grade equipment, and before you actually start the treatment you’ll receive a complimentary consultation with one of our friendly technicians to assess your skin and hair type. This is when you’ll need to disclose any previous treatments or medication that you’ve been taking. Things like a recent facial or Roaccutane will have quite a big impact on the suitability of laser hair removal for you.
6. Have Realistic Expectations
It takes more than one session to see phenomenal results. Once you complete your treatment plan, you should really expect long-term hair reduction! Furthermore, it is also very important to keep in mind that no laser clinic can actually claim 100 per cent hair removal, as some hair will always strive to grow back. Re-growth can be affected by hormones and other biological factors which can vary from person to person. Our obligation free consultation will actually help determine your long term result.
7. Be Consistent
For best results, make sure you attend your appointments religiously every four weeks (or at intervals advised by your technician). The timing of your treatments dramatically influences the result or outcome because of hair growth patterns, thus we really suggest you book a course of laser hair removal treatments rather than sporadic appointments.
8. Use The Recommended Products
Treated areas may actually appear “sunburnt” after the treatment procedure; an active or lively skin care product, like Balense Recovery Cream as well as a cold compress will ease discomfort as well as swelling. Avoid applying any type of makeup to the area as well as stay out of the sun, using Balense UV Defiance SPF 50+ on the treated area to prevent or stop discoloration or even sunburn. You must remember that your skin will be quite sensitive to the sun for 48 hours after treatment.
9. Avoid exercise and hot showers
Exercising and hot showers both increase your body temperature, causing your body to sweat and creating a potential breeding ground for bacteria. This could actually lead to infection or ingrown hairs, so we recommend waiting at least 24 hours after a laser hair removal treatment before attempting any activity that may actually increase your body temperature and upset the hair follicles.
