Unwanted hair growth is a significant problem for many of us. To get rid of this problem, many people rely on hair removal products. However, these products are not safe to use and also do not work effectively. Due to this reason, medical treatments have become quite a popular one of them is Laser Hair Removal.
Hair removal treatment includes the use of highly concentrated light that is directed into hair follicles. The light destroys the hair while pigment of hair follicles absorbs it.

Speed: It gives you result faster in comparison to other treatments. A pulse of laser can treat many hair follicles in just a fraction of a second. Small areas like upper lips can be treated within a minute while larger areas like back and legs take an hour.
The results: The procedure is result-driven. 90% of the people are in view that they permanently got rid of unwanted hair growth in just three to five sessions of hair removal.
The treatment does not require any prior preparation on the part of the patient. However, it has many potential risks, so before undergoing it, verify the credentials of your doctor. The doctor you choose must be licensed and experienced. Before the procedure, you must be aware of all potential risks included in it.
Stop plucking, waxing and even electrolyzing your hair for around six weeks before the procedure. Also, avoid sun exposure of the area for at least 6 weeks. Even after the procedure, sun exposure should be potentially avoided. Apply broad spectrum sunscreen before going out. Your skin becomes a bit sensitive over it, so that is why it is suggested to use sunscreen before going out.

The treated area look and feel like sunburned for a day or two. Use cool compresses or moisturizer to soothe the burning sensation. Over the next few months, your treated hair will fall out. Wear sunscreen during the period to avoid temporary changes in the skin.
