If you’re worried about how much laser hair removal might hurt, then don’t. If you’ve had painful IPL in the past, you’d be forgiven for being apprehensive about laser. IPL causes a lot of pain and inflammation and many people are disappointed with the results. On the other hand, our customers comment about how painless the Gentle laser is and how they wished they’d done it sooner. However, just like any cosmetic treatment, you need to do a little planning before starting laser hair removal. There’s a period of time where you can’t expose your treated skin to sun and you’ll get the best results if your follow-up treatments are done at the recommended intervals.
Planning Your Laser Hair Removal – What you need to know
Here’s a few tips on what you need to think about before having laser hair removal:
- No sun exposure to the treated area(s) for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning treatment.
- Depending on your hair type and growth cycle, you may need around 6-8 treatment sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart. You will get the best results if you follow the recommended intervals between treatments, so plan for this. It wouldn’t be the best timing if you were planning an extended holiday after the first treatment!
- Don’t wax, pluck or bleach 4 to 6 weeks before treatment and discontinue any hair removal methods apart from shaving throughout your treatments.
- Shave the area(s) to be treated the day before treatment.
Over the years, laser and light-based cosmetic procedures have been proven safe and effective. The Gentle technology has been proven in numerous studies and clinical trials.
Gentle Laser Hair Removal – What you will notice
In comparison to alternative hair removal treatments, with the Gentle technology, you will notice a comfortable treatment and you will need less treatments than IPL or VPL.
As you progress through the treatments, your hair will become noticeably sparse and much finer. You will start to forget about your normal hair removal routine and spend your saved time doing what you enjoy. You’ll wonder why you ever bothered with the hassle of shaving or waxing!
