Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can offer long-term results, but it's not a lifelong fix. To help you get the most out of your laser session, follow these tips to make your laser hair removal last as long as possible. (1) Choose a qualified professional. When scheduling your appointment, ensure your dermatologist or esthetician has the appropriate training to minimize the risks of scarring, pigment changes, and burning. (2) Avoid waxing or plucking before your appointment. (3) Avoid the sun. Using a laser on tanned or heat-sensitive skin can cause burns, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. (4) Avoid deodorant or perfume. Skin irritation after your treatment may worsen if you use cosmetic products with added fragrance. (5) Check your meds. Certain medications may cause your skin to become more sensitive to lasers.
