The treatment works by beaming a highly concentrated light into the hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, which destroys the hair from the root. It’s important before your appointment for laser hair removal to stop all hair removal except for shaving for 3 weeks prior to the appointment. This means no plucking, waxing, depilatory creams or electrolysis. The treatment targets the root of the hair, and by plucking or waxing you may temporarily remove the root, and the treatment will not be effective.
As the patient, you must arrive to the appointment having cleanly shaved the treatment area the night prior or morning of your appointment. The technician will adjust the laser equipment, which will be calibrated based on skin colour, as well as the colour and thickness of the hair. You will be required to wear safety eyewear for the duration of the treatment for your protection, which we will provide for you at your appointment. Sessions are pain-free, with a patented -4 degrees celsius cool tip. For laser hair removal in Niagara Falls, contact Laser Hair Removal Niagara.
Over the next month, the treated hair will fall out. You will need to continue laser hair removal treatments until the hair in the treatment area stops growing completely. The treatments should be spaced out between 4-6 weeks, depending on treatment area and intensity, to ensure proper healing of the area.
