The Secret to Effective Laser Hair Removal Melbourne, FL

Not all laser hair removal treatments are equal. The key to getting the best results is not just the expertise of your laser technician, but also the steps YOU take in the weeks leading up to your treatments.

To help you get the most out of your laser hair removal, here’s a list of our top tips.

Starting one month before your session:

Stop plucking and waxing and limit yourself to shaving.

 Shaving will help you achieve a smooth, hair-free look without removing your hair roots, which are essential for effective laser hair removal treatments. Laser hair removal works by targeting and destroying your hair roots, which means it can’t work without your precious roots in place.

Exfoliate your skin.

 Gently washing your treatment areas with a washcloth or mild abrasive cleanser can help to remove dead skin cells and dislodge ingrown hairs, creating a clean canvas which the laser can easily penetrate.

Stop applying self-tanner or exposing your skin to the sun.

 Lasers and suntans DO NOT mix. Exposing your skin to the sun either before or after your treatment will increase your risk for side effects, such as hyper or hypopigmentation. Sun exposure also decreases the effectiveness of your treatment by making it harder for the laser to detect your hair roots. If you show up to an appointment with tanned skin, we will need to reschedule your appointment.

Other important tips:

 Keep shaving up until the day before or morning of your treatment. Laser hair removal needs your hair to be in the active stage of hair growth to be effective, and shaving keeps your hair follicles active. Plus, long, grown-out hair makes it impossible for the laser to target your hair roots.

Plan for a series of treatments. Laser hair removal only works on active hair follicles. Since hair is not consistently active at any given time, it takes a series of treatments over a period of months to achieve your best results. We recommend a series of seven treatments scheduled every four to six weeks.
