Are you tired of waxing your bikini line or shaving your underarms? If you are fed up with it, then consider undergoing laser hair removal. This treatment eliminates shaving, waxing, and plucking. But how do you prepare for this procedure?

Schedule a Consultation for Laser Hair Removal The procedure is cosmetic. Despite its cosmetic nature, you should still consider it as a medical treatment. That is, you must only choose a licensed or certified medical professional to perform it. Thus, make sure that you find a licensed laser hair removal clinic or spa near you. Once you`ve found one, you should consult with its medical practitioner. During the consultation, a board-certified professional will provide you with the details that you need to know whether or not this procedure is ideal for you.

Follow Pre-Treatment Instructions If this is your first session, then you need to follow all the pre-treatment instructions to ensure that you are getting the best result. In most cases, plucking and waxing are prohibited. Because this procedure needs to remove the hair follicle, the follicle needs to be intact. If you pluck or wax before the treatment, the follicle will be destroyed. You won’t get the result that you need after the first session.

You should also avoid tanning. The reason for this is that it increases melanin in the skin which makes it difficult for the laser to penetrate deeply into the skin and destroy the follicles. Do your best to minimize your sun exposure. Thus, avoid going to the beach or visiting a tanning salon.

Prepare Yourself Mentally As mentioned, it is not a medical procedure. It is a cosmetic treatment that is almost painless. However, you may still feel a slight sting or heat. If you are overly sensitive to pain or your pain threshold is too low, you need to prepare yourself. You should practice mindfulness days before the procedure. It will help you feel 100% comfortable while getting the procedure.

To ensure that your laser hair removal is a success, you need to have it done by a reputable technician. That’s why it is pertinent that you go to a medical spa or clinic. The setup here is clean and the treatment is administered by a board-certified medical professional. You should also discuss your medical history with the resident medical doctor or nurse of the spa. In this way, you can talk about your allergies that may arise during the treatment.

How Safe is Laser Hair Removal? It is generally safe, as long as it is carried out by a certified technician. Thus, never go to a salon for this treatment because you can never be sure how it handles its equipment. Perhaps, the area where you receive the treatment is not sterile, or the tools used are not completely disinfected.
