LASER HAIR REMOVAL
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCESS?
The laser hair removal process works by sending a beam of laser light to a group of hair follicles with enough power to disable or destroy the root while not harming the surrounding skin. The laser beam finds the hair follicles by targeting melanin (the substance that gives skin and hair color). It is important to note that the laser process will not work well on people that have red, white, gray or blond hair.
HOW TO GET THE MOST BENEFIT FROM LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal (LHR) works best on dark hair and light skin. Light hairs may need to be artificially darkened in order for the laser to target them.
Avoid removing hair by the roots (tweezing, waxing, etc) for at least 6 weeks before your treatment. Only shave or use a depilatory like Nair on your hair (these products only remove hair above the skin) to manage growth.
Select a treatment facility that uses newer technology to minimize pain, such as the Cheveux II 810 diode laser with smooth flow technology. This laser has quicker treatment sessions because of its larger spot size. 2 Avoid removing hair by the roots (tweezing, waxing, etc) for at least 6 weeks before your treatment.

Get a consultation! Meet the technician and have him/her perform a test pulse before you commit to anything.
Shave closely right before your treatment. This will minimize the pain.
Avoid caffeine for 24 hours before your treatment. This will help with pain as well, and you’ll be more relaxed.
During the treatment, expect pain. It can be described as a rubber band slapping your skin or like tweezing multiple hairs at once.
Provide the technician with feedback regarding your pain. They may need to adjust the intensity of the laser.
Communicate with your technician after the procedure. When you leave the office, you should be slightly red and you may see red circles in more sensitive areas of your skin. Old technology lasers left you burned for a few days, but newer technology should leave you recovered within an hour.
Be aware of how laser treatment works. You should notice that for the next 24 hours, the treated hairs will not grow. After that time, they will start to “grow” at about half the former rate until they have been expelled enough to be removed. You can help the “shedding” process with a washcloth in the shower. Some hairs may be loose enough to be grabbed with your fingers, but you can also use tweezers to pull them out. Do not remove hairs that give resistance — the hairs that are ready to come out will be removed without even feeling it. Resistance means the root still lives, and you’ll have to wait for that hair to die in your next treatment. Tweezing it will only slow your overall process.
