Laser Hair Removal: How to Plan for a Hair-Free Summer

Planning out your treatments is a good strategy with any service, especially one that requires several sessions over a long period of time. One that comes to the top of our minds is laser hair removal. Since hair grows in multiple cycles, and follicles can only be treated in the active phase, you will need to undergo a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.

If silky-smooth skin by summer sounds like a dream come true, we’re prepared to make it a reality by assisting you every step of the way in your laser hair removal journey.

First step: Schedule a consultation with medspa810
To get started with your laser hair removal, you’ll first need to call us to set up your consultation. During your personal consultation, we’ll discuss the process and outline your treatment plan. Patients usually see optimal results after six to eight sessions, depending on the treatment area and hair growth cycles. Laser hair removal can be used on any area of the body, including underarms, bikini area, legs, back, chin and upper lip.

Second step: Prepare for your treatments
There are a few key ways to prep for your treatments in order to achieve your best results. It’s crucial that you stay out of the sun and avoid tanning products for two weeks before treatment — laser hair removal cannot be performed on sunburned or recently tanned skin. Since laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle, it’s important to keep the follicles intact. This means avoiding tweezing and waxing the treatment area for three weeks, as these methods damage the follicle. However, it’s recommended that you shave 24-48 hours prior to your treatment session to allow for more precise, more efficient hair removal. Be sure to arrive with clean skin, free from lotions, makeup and other products.

Third step: Start your personalized treatment regimen
You can expect a treatment plan consisting of anywhere from four to eight sessions, depending on the area being treated. These treatment sessions should be spaced four to six weeks apart to account for hair growth cycles. We proudly provide Bare HR™ laser hair removal, offering the fastest treatment times and most effective, comfortable treatments of any device on the market. During treatment, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in your hair, which is then converted to heat, disabling the follicle and inhibiting future hair growth.

Fourth step: Keep up with post-care recommendations
Following the proper post-care steps will help you maintain your results and minimize side effects. Make sure to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for 14 days after your treatment. For the first 24 hours, keep the treated area clean, dry and free from any lotions, moisturizers or deodorant. Makeup should be avoided for 48 hours following treatment.

Fifth step: Enjoy hair-free, carefree confidence all summer long!
At this point, you will have completed your laser hair removal treatment plan, and you can flaunt your results, whether at the beach or by the pool!
