There are so many things that women should prepare as summer gets nearer, and two of them are diet and hair removal. Many of you might think that it’s still too early for it, but for cases like laser hair removal, since you need repetitive procedures up to 5~6 times for its effect, it is never too early for it.
Self-hair removal by shaving or using the waxing cream can be done, but this can’t completely remove the follicles, causing unwanted pigmentations and skin problems like folliculitis. Laser hair removal is a procedure wherein the emitted energy is selectively absorbed into black melanin pigments and converted to heat energy during the process, and thus destroys the hair root and the follicles. It can be done on various areas of the body including arms, legs, armpits, bikini lines, hairlines and beards etc.
The time of procedure differs depending on the area, but it usually takes about 10 minutes. For best results, it’s important to pick the right specialist with a lot of experience since each individual needs suitable procedure for different skin types. Also, since the hair growth is progressed through 3 stages; growth phase, catagen phase and telogen phase, 5~6 procedure is required for permanent effect.
It’s a simple procedure, but the post-laser procedure must be well noted as well. The hair isn’t removed immediately but will start to slowly fall off 1~2 weeks after the procedure. The hair will still grow so shaving is necessary (but you shouldn’t force to pluck it out or wax). To minimize skin damage, please consult a specialist who has a lot of experience and use suitable device.
