There are many misconceptions about Laser Hair removal.
The first Misconception is that Laser Hair Removal is only for Light or Dark Skin. This is not the case and technology has come a long way. In the past, only dark hair on light skin could be ideally treated. Currently, there are different types of Laser modalities and options available, which we offer here at CosMedic LaserMD. The only hair not well treated by laser is light, fair, or gray hair, because pigment is required for the laser to adequately target it.
The most important consideration is to choose a facility with trained and licensed providers. Your skin is worth more than a special offer or substandard technician, so make sure you choose a reputable laser center where you know you’re getting expert attention. Not only will you get better results this way, you’ll be safer too.
Choosing the correct settings for each individual is crucial for obtaining optimal results and obtaining the best results. Here at CosMedic LaserMD, my staff and I use the patented SkinTel to correctly gauge the amount of melanin in your skin realtime. This technology enables us to optimally treat your hair and avoid untoward effects including hyperpigmentation and burns and we can ascertain your sun exposure on that day. This will optimize the safety of your procedure.
The second myth is that you will not see results after one session. Actually, you may well see dramatic results after the first session. Most people do. Although most individuals will require roughly 6-8 treatments to achieve permanent reduction, depending on their Fitzpatrick Score (Skin Type), significant reduction can be seen immediately.
The third misconception is that you should shave first before your treatment. Here at CosMedic LaserMD, we request that you do not shave before your first treatment. This way we may adequately assess your hair growth, quality, location and other features so we may best gauge your treatment and choose the best handpiece and wavelength. You may shave for subsequent treatments but we may request that you do not so that we can assess your progress.
The fourth misconception is that Laser Hair Removal is very painful. Actually, although people’s experience varies, it is extremely well tolerated. It is far less uncomfortable compared to electrolysis, waxing, tweezing and the annoyance of ingrown hairs.
Truth be told, there’s no reason you can’t get laser hair removal any time of the year. That said, if you’ve been toying with the idea and are looking for some pointers on when the best time for laser hair removal is, you might want to plan for this winter. Laser will cause your skin to become more sensitive to the sun and therefore sunning or tanning is to be avoided so as not to risk complications of burns or hyperpigmentation. We recommend SPF 50 on all exposed areas.
Laser Hair Removal results do not happen overnight. If you schedule your first sessions during the winter, you can cover up those legs with cozy sweatpants and forget about waxing, shaving or depilatories if you don’t feel like it. Come next summer, you’ll be well on your way to smoother, effortless skin. You will be summer ready!
