Razor blades and hot wax often make the skin sensitive and irritated. While these are inexpensive ways to get rid of hair, they require constant maintenance to ensure the desired result.

That's whylaser hair removal is the most desired option for those who no longer want to worry about hair growth. Today, laser hair removal is one of the most sought after aesthetic procedures on the market, being adopted by men and women who seek practicality and the freedom tolive without hair, a smooth and healthy skin, and an effective method that does not pollute the environment and which, over time, represents a financial advantage.

It is also an effective solution for ingrown hairs as almost every part of the body can be treated.

The laser can be applied to quite the entire body, just not being applied to the eyebrows. The most sought after areas are the intimate region - groin and anus, whole legs, half leg, face - upper lip, beard or even the side of the face, back, chest, abdomen, beard strip and buttocks.

The procedure acts in depth and destroys the root of the hair, and is usuallyless painful than waxing, for example. And it is much more practical and effective than the wax, razor, tweezers, depilatory cream or electric razor. In just a few sessions, you're hair free and you won't have to resort to these traditional hair removal methods anymore. 

The laser hair removal requires some simple but important care. Check how to properly prepare your skin for each session.

Laser Hair Removal

Do not sunbathe before and after laser application

Melanin is the protein responsible for coloring our skin and hair. When we expose ourselves to the sun, its production is stimulated to protect the skin from UV rays.

Anyone who has researched how the laser hair removal device works knows that the light beams are fired precisely when they come into contact with the pigmentation of the wires.

What does this mean exactly? Well, if your skin has an increased amount of melanin during treatment, there is a risk of getting blemishes and burns.

Furthermore, the skin tends to be a little sensitive and red after the sessions. One more reason toavoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before and two weeks after the last session.

It is also necessary to discontinue the use of tanning lotions at least a month before starting the treatment - exactly for the same reason that exposure to the sun should be avoided.

Apply sunscreen to your skin every day

To use sunscreen on the most exposed areas throughout the procedure is an important care even if the weather is cloudy. As the sun can cause burns, stains and further sensitize the skin. The skin must not be tanned before the treatment.

Hydration

The shaved area can be very sensitive after the procedure. Use soothing moisturizers and drink plenty of fluids, which help keep your skin hydrated. In fact, thegreater hydration of the skin contributes to a better result of laser hair removal. 

Do not wax or use razors

One of the main precautions with laser hair removal is to avoid anything that disturbs the hair follicles. This means that, at least a month before starting the treatment, you muststop using hot wax and other depilatory products that damage the roots of the hair.

Again, the target of the light beams is melanin — the root must be present in the follicles for the laser to identify and destroy it.

During the treatment, only the use of a razor is allowed, and it is mandatory to shave the hair in the area to be treated 12 to 14 hours before each session.

 

Skin acids

Avoid the use of dermatological acids present in many dermocosmetics for whitening, thinning and change the color of the skin, during treatment, which can further sensitize the skin. If the skin becomes red or a little irritated after the session, be sure to use hydration or cold water compresses.

The ideal is to talk to thedermatologist who prescribed the acid about the possibility of suspending use for a while.

 

Exfoliating

Weekly exfoliation of the skin is important to unclog pores, eliminate dead cells and stimulate collagen production. That is, it should be part of the current beauty routine.

But among laser hair removal care, it occupies a special place. This is because it prevents hairs from becoming ingrown before the procedure - which facilitates the destruction of hair follicles.

The ideal is to make a very gentle exfoliation in the area to be shaved at least three days before the laser. However, be careful not to weigh your hand and make your skin very sensitive. 

Wear light clothes

The laser tends to make the skin a little sensitive. Therefore, it is legal to avoid thick or tight clothes — friction in the treated area can further irritate the skin and cause stains.

In the first week after the treatment, give preference to light fabrics and natural fibers, such as cotton. Avoid synthetics, which make it difficult for the skin to breathe.

Make sure you are using a safe home laser hair removal device likeSnowyskin IPL hair removal handset. There have been a number of studies around the world which prove thesafety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular safe and effective method of hair removal. 

One of the many advantages of using the hair removal handset over other types of laser is that it is pain-free. Most customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin. 

And the device will last well over 8 years if used as directed, so you will always have it at home with no additional costs to maintain you laser hair removal up to date.
