What you do in between your laser hair reduction treatments is just as important as the procedure itself. You’re spending a lot of time and money to get rid of your unwanted hairs so be sure to check out this list below of what to do and what not to do so that you can get the best possible results.
- You can shave the hairs, including those on your face, but no waxing, threading, tweezing or any other form of hair removal. If you pull the hairs out of the follicle then they can’t be treated because there’s nothing there to be treated.
- You should stay away from bleaching because if you discolor the hairs then the laser can’t see them and it won’t work.
- You can’t tan at all. The lighter you are the better your treatments will be. If you’re naturally olive then you can still get great results but if you get a tan then your skin can burn during the treatments. Tanning salons and lotions are also banned from your routine for the meantime as well.
- Applying moisturizer to your skin on a daily basis is not only a good way to keep your skin moisturized but also a benefit to your laser sessions. Often times people notice that after a treatment their hairs just start falling out. Moisturizing helps to speed up this process.
You may have to remind yourself to stick to the rules from time to time but for the most part it’s pretty simple. Good luck.
