Preparation Before Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment Begins:
For optimal results, please refrain from using any other form of hair removal such as plucking, tweezing or waxing for a period of six weeks prior to your laser treatment appointment with our hair removal experts. However, you can shave the day before the treatment as well as in between the sessions.
Ideally 3-4 days before your first laser hair removal treatment with us, our clinicians will carry out a patch test on a small area of your skin. This helps us to determine the level of laser energy needed for the most effective course of treatment as well as to check if you will have any adverse reactions to laser therapy.
On the day of the laser treatment session itself, your skin will be prepared by using alcohol disinfectant so as to remove topical applications such as perfumes, deodorants, lotions and makeup from your skin.
We also recommend that our clients avoid caffeine prior to laser appointments, since it can make your skin more sensitive to pain; therefore, not something we encourage!
Before starting the treatment, your laser technician will ask you to lie down or recline. You will also be given some special UV-resistant blackout goggles to wear to protect your eyes from the laser.
Since people’s tolerance to sensitivity or pain naturally varies, an anesthetic numbing gel or cream can be applied to the treatment site to numb it and ease the pain. However, the lasers we use have sophisticated, state-of-the-art cooling mechanisms to help reduce any overheating sensation in most of our clients.
Our qualified laser technicians conduct the treatment with a small, handheld wand and it lasts a few minutes for a small area and up to one or more hours for larger areas.
After your comfortable laser hair removal treatment, the skin will be cooled down-usually with a cooling solution; Aloe Vera is our tonic of choice, given its natural soothing properties. Your skin may be red and a little swollen following your laser sessions but this should disappear within 24 hours.
Since there are three phases of hair growth: anagen, catagen and telogen, you will need several treatments that are spread out over a number of weeks to catch all the hairs in their growth phases.
Lasers target hair only in anagen phase. Therefore, you will need 4-6 treatments although this varies on how thick the hair in your treatment area of choice is.
After your laser treatment at Araya Beauty, please avoid hot baths, swimming pools, saunas and steam rooms since your skin is in highly sensitive state. Also, for the next 48 hours, please don’t use any perfumed products and thick creams on the treated areas.
Laser hair removal fast as it takes only a few minutes to do a small body part like upper lip while large areas like the back only take an hour or so. There are many other great benefits associated with opting for laser over our other, more traditional hair removal options here at Araya Beauty. They include:
