Laser Hair Reduction
Laser is a hair reduction treatment and not a hair removal procedure. It works on the hair follicles, reducing their fertility and capacity to re-grow. In 5-6 sessions, it drastically reduces hair growth, thus resulting is permanently smooth, soft skin.
Laser hair reduction is a process that needs due care both on the part of the technician as well as on the part of the patient.
The following care check-list is highly recommended:-
- Avoid sun exposure for at least 4-6 weeks prior and post the procedure
- Do not pluck/ wax hair while under-going laser hair reduction (Even pre/post the session)
- Apply post care ointments as advised by the expert
- In case you have extremely dense/ fast re-growth, a maintenance touch up session is advisable every 6-12 months.
It is highly advisable to shave before getting a laser Hair Reduction session done. This ensures that there is no hair above the skin which the laser machine will pick. Laser machine tends to target the hair above/ below the skin. Shaving ensures there is no hair above the skin that the laser machine will target, hence preventing potential burns. It is highly advisable not to shave at home, instead let the technician shave just before doing the laser session.
Do not Wax during the course of the procedure even pre-post the sessions.
