Just like any other surgical procedure, laser hair removal should also be done after a proper understanding of its dos and don’ts so that the treatment turns out absolutely right. Although there are plenty of hair removal options—from waxing to tweezing and shaving, laser hair removal treatment in Bangalore is known to last much longer.
If you are also planning to get started with your laser hair removal treatment, it is important that you know some basic rules for it.
1. Stop plucking and waxing right away
Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair root, so it is crucial that you avoid waxing or plucking the area at least a month or so before your laser hair removal appointment. You’re still allowed to shave in between sessions as long as the hair root is in place. In reality, the procedure itself includes shaving the targeted area before starting your laser treatment. The laser hair removal appointments at Clinic Dermatech are scheduled at 6 to 8 weeks intervals so that you can continue shaving at that time. However, you will have to stop doing it at least a week before your appointment.
2. Avoid Sun Exposure
It is important to keep the targeted skin out of the sun at least two days before your laser hair removal treatment in Bangalore. Unprotected sun exposure can cause redness after your laser treatment and in extreme cases, mild sunburn can cause pain and rashes. Most experienced laser professionals do not treat a client with even minor sunburn and they will have to reschedule their appointment. For that reason, make sure to apply sunscreen every day if you cannot cover the treated area with clothing when you are outside.
3. Avoid Bleaching the targeted area
As mentioned before, laser hair removal treatment in Bangalore works by targeting the hair root. The pigment of hair can be found in the hair root which absorbs the light produced by the laser and ultimately destroys the hair permanently. In case you bleach your hair, it will alter the pigment and make it more difficult for the laser to target the hair. So make sure to completely avoid bleaching your hair at least six weeks before your laser hair removal appointment. This will be enough time for the hair roots to grow back to their natural colour.
Now you know three of the most important rules that you need to follow before visiting for your laser hair removal treatment in Bangalore. So make sure to follow them and achieve the best results.
