still, you are not convinced if it is the right way to get rid of that unwanted hair. We get you! One of the reasons can be that you're unsure of what exactly happens in a laser hair removal process. Well, don’t worry because we are here to get you in on the entire workings of this procedure.

how does laser hair removal work?

It’s a cosmetic procedure using a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted body hair. Here’s how laser hair removal works. during laser hair removal, a laser beam emits a light that the melanin in your hair follicle absorbs and heats up the hair follicle. The laser destroys the roots without affecting the surrounding skin. Also, there will be no ingrowths. all you are left with is silky smooth skin that you can’t get enough of.

how to prepare for laser hair removal?

at makeO skin(formely skinnsi), you will receive pre-treatment instructions from your treating professional and get answers to any queries that you may have. before the procedure, you will be asked to:

  • use sunscreen and/or avoid direct exposure to the sun
  • use a bleaching cream for darker skin
  • avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis prior to it
  • to promote better healing, stop smoking at least six weeks before the treatment
  • to control increased bleeding, avoid taking aspirin, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and some herbal medications
  • stay hydrated. It’s important for safe recovery before and after treatment

which are the target areas for laser hair removal?

you can pick and choose the body parts you would like to undergo a laser treatment for. some of the most common body parts that people choose for laser hair reduction are:

  • legs
  • arms
  • underarms
  • chin
  • sideburns
  • upper lips
  • neck
  • back
  • bikini line

what to expect in laser hair removal?

  • before the treatment starts, our experts shave the area to be treated to remove hair not from its roots but only from the surface of the skin.
  • then, the topical anaesthetic gel may be applied, and skin cooling might be done during the procedure to help keep you comfortable.
  • next, our expert examines the skin and provides the right laser frequency for the treatment.
  • once the laser has been used, a soothing moisturiser is applied.

generally, laser hair removal procedures take fifteen to thirty minutes per body part/body area. However, depending on the area being treated and your customised need, a longer time period may be required. Once the procedure is completed, you can return home and resume your normal activities.

post-treatment care for laser hair removal

mostly, you may return to your daily activities right after your treatment. It’s only that, you will receive detailed instructions about your post-treatment care, which include:

  • skincare
  • basic symptoms you may experience
  • any potential signs of complication

make sure to follow all post-care instructions provided by your treating professional.

what happens after the treatment?

immediately after the laser hair removal: you will have smoother skin and see the reduced number of hair on the particular body part. There may be redness or minor skin irritation after the treatment, however, it usually resolves quickly. In some cases, you may need to use specially formulated skincare products or follow a prescribed skin care regimen. on the treated areas that are exposed, sunscreen is an absolute must. Just in case, redress on your skin and/or irritation persists, contact your surgeon to rule out any possible reactions to the treatment.

1. week two to week eight

during this time frame, you may notice some hair growth in the treated area. It’s because the dormant hair follicles enter the active growing phase as they were not affected by the earlier laser treatment. Follow-up treatment intervals of approximately 4 to 8 weeks are recommended depending on the speed of growth.

how long does it take for laser hair removal to fully work?

while the perfect number of sessions for each person varies depending on the hair type, on average it takes 6-8 sessions across a few months for laser hair removal to fully work.

do you shave before laser hair removal?

yes, instead of waxing, tweezing or epilating, you can shave a day before your laser hair removal. since the laser attacks the hair embedded in the hair follicle, shaving will reduce the length of the hair and not completely uproot it, thereby making the laser more effective.

how painful is laser hair removal?

with the rise of modern laser technology, most laser hair removal procedures today are almost painless. at makeO skinnsi, we use the latest ice-cool laser technology to cool the skin and cancel out the heat of the laser for a comfortable experience.

do you still shave after laser hair removal?

yes, you can shave as many times as you want after laser hair removal. but, make sure to have a gap between your laser session and shaving.
