Unwanted body hair is a problem that almost everyone has to deal with. As a result, hair removal is quickly becoming the most popular noninvasive aesthetic surgery. We employ an 810 nm ion laser at one stop aesthetics to remove and permanently reduce undesirable body hair. The pulse repetition rate can be adjusted up to 10 pulses per second, providing for quick and effective treatment of both small and large areas. All skin types can benefit from the 810 nm diode.
Hair Removal Pre-Treatment Procedures Instruction
Plucking is forbidden.
Tweezing, waxing, or any other undesired hair removal therapy that eliminates hair from the root must be avoided prior to a laser hair removal treatment. Laser hair removal only works when there is hair in the hair follicle. The hair’s melanin, or pigment, is what attracts the laser. The hair must be in the anagen (active) phase of growth.
In the 4-6 weeks leading up to your laser hair removal procedure, you should also avoid sun exposure. Extra melanin in tanned skin draws laser energy in.
Moisturize your skin but don’t overdo it.
Applying lotion, sunscreen, perfume, or other comparable cosmetics on your skin’s surface right before your laser hair removal treatment is a bad idea.
1-3 days of shaving
Shave 1-3 days before your appointment. The goal is to shave as closely as possible without leaving any hair on the skin. It’s preferable to leave just enough hair for your laser specialist to see what has to be treated.
The small quantity of stubble that gets hit by the laser may be somewhat charred. So don’t be alarmed if you detect a smoldering hair odor.
