Choosing and Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatment is a permanent solution to unwanted hair problems, but a lot of people have a hard time choosing this procedure over other, cheaper, temporary methods. The truth is, getting rid of unwanted hairs on your face and body can be a real pain, but people think its a pain they just have to deal with, over and over again.

Plucking hurts. Shaving can leave itchy razor rash and bumps, as well as prickly stubble. You can wax, but you have to let the hair grow for a significant amount of time before you make an appointment. All of these processes involve time and money that you’ll have to spend over and over again.

Laser hair treatment is minimally invasive and almost always painless. These side effects are very low risks, and even patients who suffer from them often say that the discomfort was worth not having to shave, wax, or pluck ever again.

To avoid any adverse side effects, any hair removal clinic in Colleyville, Fort Worth and Southlake will recommend that you prepare properly for the procedure. This means taking special care of your skin in the weeks leading up to your procedure.

Damaged skin can cause problems for the laser treatment and aftercare, so avoid getting sun burned. If you usually go to a tanning salon or lay out in the sun to get a healthy glow to your skin, hold off on this for a couple of weeks before you go in for laser treatments.

On the day of your treatment, don’t apply any deodorant, perfume, or lotion to the skin that will be treated. This can cause irritation and scarring. You’ll also want to avoid taking aspirin or drinking alcohol beforehand, as well as taking any other kind of blood thinner. These can cause bleeding during the procedure.

It’s perfectly normal, afterward, to experience some swelling and redness in the treated follicles, as well as some mild pain in the area that was treated. You can treat this pain and inflammation with an antiseptic cream and over-the-counter pain medications. You’ll want to continue to avoid direct sun light for at least a week after the procedure, or until all pain and swelling has ceased. There are no other issues with recovery and no real downtime after the procedure.
