A Guide to Laser Hair Removal, Manhattan, New York

Laser hair removal has gained popularity in recent years as more people seek alternatives for the daily maintenance of shaving and the discomfort of waxing. This treatment can permanently remove hair from the legs, arms, face, back, underarms, and bikini line painlessly and quickly. If you’re thinking about investing in this procedure, learn more about the process and how to prepare.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal uses a handheld tool to concentrate small beams of light onto hair follicles. That concentrated energy gets absorbed into the pigment and eventually destroys the hair down to the root. The process isn’t especially painful, but you may feel quick bursts of heat with each application. Complete hair removal usually takes multiple sessions, but you may start seeing results within weeks of the first appointment.

How Do You Prepare?

Stay away from tanning beds and wait for any natural tan to fade before scheduling a session. You should also shave thick hair before your appointment so the beams can contact the follicle as close to the root as possible.

What Should You Do After?

After your initial appointment, your specialist should be able to give you an idea of how many treatments you may need going forward, so you can start scheduling follow-ups. You’ll also need to stay away from excessive heat or any activities that might cause you to sweat directly after treatment, including exercising, sitting in a sauna, or tanning.
