What to Expect During Your Laser Hair Removal Visit

If you are having the Laser Hair removal treatment for the first time, you might not be sure of what is going to happen. Before going to the clinic, you must do a little homework about your laser treatment. Then do a thorough work as to which clinic might suit you according to expertise, location and price. Listen to experiences of your friends and colleagues. This will help you reach the right decision.

First of all, you are going to meet your doctor or technician who will be monitoring your akin or asking you questions. Before the treatment is started, the area to be treated will be washed using alcohol. You must wear safety goggles which an experienced technician is sure to have you wear that. This is done in order to protect your eyes from laser light. The technician will then make the setting of the laser light according to your skin and hair.

When the procedure is started, a light beam is shooted at your hair follicles in the area where Laser Hair removal Treatment is intended. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicles and converted into heat energy. This may cause a little tingling affect if done by an experienced technician otherwise it might cause burning of your skin. Pain varies from patient to patient and even from the part of the body where the treatment is taking place. The more sensitive the body part is, the more you will feel that something is happening to your skin. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is considered to be the best hair removal source as it does a controlled exposure to laser. There are lesser side effects, if any, as compared to Laser.

The procedure will last for not more than half an hour on a specific body part. And it will take 4 to eight sessions before your treatment leads to permanent hair removal and gives guaranteed results. Once again, I will emphasize on the clinic you choose. This will directly affect your results as well as your money spent on the treatment. An expert technician will take care of your skin more than an un experienced one.
