When we talk about self-care here at SafiraMD, what we mean is any activity, product or treatment you do or get because it brings you happiness, health or peace of mind.
One of our favorite self-care treatments we offer is laser hair removal! Is that surprising to you? That’s understandable, because dealing with body hair has become such a routine part of our lives that we don’t recognize it as a “problem” to be fixed. But wait just a moment – take a deep breath and imagine your life without needing to shave, wax or pluck. What could you do instead with the time and money spent yearly on those tasks alone? Now imagine no longer dealing with razor burn, ingrown hairs or the uncomfortable realization – while out in public – that you missed a spot?
Sounds like a pretty luxurious world to live in, doesn’t it? We couldn’t agree more, which is exactly why we offer laser hair removal! Here’s what you need to know about this life-changing treatment before you get started:
How does it work?
Laser hair removal disables active hair follicles with precisely targeted laser heat, causing the hair to fall out and preventing future hair growth on any area of the body without downtime.
What can I do to ensure the best results?
For this treatment, the roots of your hair follicles need to be intact, so what you should do is stop plucking, waxing or electrolysis for at least one month before your treatment. It’s also important to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams, which increase your risk of side effects. One week before your treatment, you should stop using exfoliating agents such as Retin-A, glycolic acid, or photosensitizing medications. Lastly, it’s best to shave your treatment area the day of or before your treatment session.
How long until I see my results?
You’ll start to see results two weeks to one month after your treatment, and because the laser heat can only target active hair follicles and not all your hair follicles are active at the same time, most people need several treatments in order to get the best results.
Now that you know how the magic happens, it’s time to give us a call at 678.235.8221 or schedule a consultation online today so we can help you get started toward the blissful life of no longer shaving, plucking or waxing!
