Laser Hair Removal Treatment for Unwanted Hair

*Collaborative post.

Having unwanted hair on your face as a female can be frustrating. I know how frustrating it is because I am quite hairy and I have had my fair share of dealing with unwanted hair on parts of my face. I noticed the increase in the facial hair some years ago and I had to get rid of them. Thankfully there are now many ways of getting rid of unwanted hair. From using tweezers, waxing to shaving cream. However, the best way to get rid of unwanted hair on your face or body is by having a laser hair removal procedure done. I have had many laser hair removal sessions done and I can testify to how effective and safe the procedure is.

 

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

For those who are not aware of this procedure, laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that makes use of a powerful laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove unwanted hair on parts of your body. The procedure usually lasts a couple of minutes and it is usually pain free, so you can get back to your business of the day as soon as the session is over. Many people usually need only about 6 sessions spaced about 4- 6 weeks apart to get rid of the unwanted hair. I had 6 sessions of laser hair removal treatment on my chin many years ago and it worked great for me.

How Laser Hair Removal Treatment Works for Unwanted Hair

Laser hair removal treatment removes hair by destroying hair follicles in the skin, which disrupts hair growth. I always had on protective googles are to protect my eyes during the procedure, and so did everyone else. While the treatment is going on, you can usually smell the burning hair as the machine stings the area of the body being treated. It feels like a sting every time the machine touches the affected area and the sting only lasts a few seconds, so it is quite bearable for even those with low pain threshold like myself.

 

Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

From my experience, I had no side effects but I know some people suffer from a bit of redness on the treated area. I had an after cream I applied on my chin after every procedure and I stayed out of the sun. That helped my skin heal naturally.

 

Laser hair removal treatment is an effective and safe cosmetic procedure for getting rid of unwanted hair. I prefer the laser method to others and I recommend it to anyone dealing with unwanted hair.

Laser vs Waxing

To wax or to laser? That is the question for many. Waxing has been around for a long time and is very popular. Many people have only heard of ear wax removal in London. However nowadays waxing treatments are now available for many areas of the body. It works by applying warm wax onto a hairy area and then smoothing down a wax strip on top. The wax sticks on to the hair, and when the strip is pulled away, the hair is also pulled along with it. It can be a bit uncomfortable (many find it painful) but it does the job of getting the hairs off from the root. While Laser Hair Removal treatment is the removal of body hair using the technology of laser. The treatment works by targeting the hair follicles with laser light. The heat damages the hair follicle and stops them from producing any more hair.

To Wax Or To Laser

I prefer and recommend having a Laser Hair Removal Treatment over waxing if you can afford to. The treatments can be quite pricey but you clearly I have tried both ways and I found the laser method to be the most effective way of getting rid of body hairs. My laser treatment was on my chin. I had annoying hairs on there, so I decided to get them off using laser. It worked great. I had 6 Laser Hair Removal Treatment sessions in total, and the treatments left my chin feeling and looking completely hair free. You can read all about my Laser Hair experience here, here and other related blog posts.

With waxing, I still have some areas waxed quite regularly, like my eyebrows. Using laser on them won’t be ideal, so waxing does the job for that and other bits.

5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment

I had my last session of my laser hair removal treatment last year. There were 6 sessions in total including the patch treatment. Many people have asked me about my laser hair removal experience, and some questions have been asked a few times by different people. So I thought writing a post on 5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment would be useful.

The laser hair removal treatment I had was on my chin. I found my chin hairs very annoying. The best option for me was to have the laser treatment, since waxing and threading were not the keeping my chin hair-free long enough. I would 100% recommend this treatment to anyone in need of it. I found it very effective. But before you go ahead, here are some things you need to know you start the treatment.

 

5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment

Avoid the sun before your treatment

It is best to stay out of the sun before your treatment. You won’t be able to have the treatment done if the area has a sun burn. It is best to have the treatment done in the autumn/winter months if possible.

You should also avoid tanning beds, spray tans, tanning lotion and makeup on the area to be treated. I had to always wipe my chin area completely before the treatment to ensure there was no makeup on it.

 

You will need a couple of sessions

You will need a couple of sessions to achieve good results. I had 6 sessions and I know someone who had 12 sessions. The number of sessions you have depends on the area to be treated, the type of hair to be removed and many other factors.

Consistency is the way to achieve good results. So ensure you have as many treatments as needed, and at the right time too.  I went for my treatments every 4/6 weeks.

 

The pain is bearable

I found the pain bearable, but maybe I just have a good pain threshold. Many people I know complain about how uncomfortable it is and I agree. It is uncomfortable but not as painful as I imagined.

 

It is suitable on all skin types 

The laser hair removal treatment I had is suitable for all skin types. You can find out more about it being suitable for your skin type from this short YouTube video.

 

 

Do not wax or thread after treatment

You can shave, but make sure you don’t wax or thread after each treatment. Whilst having the treatment, pulling out your hair follicles through waxing and threading hinders the process.
