Are you looking for an efficient and painless technique to remove unwanted or hair? You can try laser treatments. There are some electronic devices that allow for laser tattoo removal right at home, but for safety’s sake it is always good to go to a beauty clinic or spa that will give you professional laser treatment for hair removal.
There’s nothing more unseemly than unwanted hair on your back, chin, hands or other parts of the body. Shaving, tweezing or waxing are the commonly used methods to remove unwanted hair. But you should do these techniques periodically and they can also be painful at times. Laser treatment for hair removal offers a convenient alternative to these traditional hair removing methods.
Did you get a tattoo when you were young and feeling carefree, but now feel that it doesn’t match with your chic and sophisticated image? No problem, you can go for laser tattoo removal. This technique removes the dye in tattoo without damaging your skin cells.
So, how does laser treatment for hair removal work? Highly concentrated beams of light are focussed on the problem areas. It hits at the hair follicles and destroys the hair. Similarly, when the high charge beam hits on the pigment, it removes the colour.
You should not have gone for waxing, shaving or plucking at least for six weeks before you take up the laser treatment. Also check the credentials of the doctor performing the treatment before you sign up for the program.
Before laser tattoo removal is done, the whole area is thoroughly cleaned. For hair removal, the hair is cut to a few millimetres above the skin. The settings of the laser device are adjusted according to the skin tone, hair thickness and location of the hair. The technician will do many test runs before starting the actual procedure. Once the laser treatment is completed ice packs, cold water or anti-inflammatory creams are applied on the skin.
For best results, don’t directly expose your skin to sunlight for a minimum of six weeks after treatment. Laser treatment is a very delicate process and should be accurately performed. Even if there is a slight change in the light intensity or the way in which the beam is passed over the skin, there could be harmful side effects. So, always ensure the spa has qualified and experienced technicians who can give you the best treatment.
