I decided to make myself a laser hair removal, but first I wanted to get acquainted with the information about this procedure. She found a lot of interesting things and decided to share with you.
Laser removes hair permanently
It happens that the hair grow back again in a few years. This is because the laser beam causes the follicles to fall asleep, and after a while they can wake up. But if they grow, they are smaller and much weaker. A well-performed procedure should eliminate about 80 percent of the hair.
Laser hair removal can do every
For this procedure, there are a number of contraindications, the main of which is tanned skin. At the very least, a tan cannot be very fresh: you should wait at least one month.
Another contraindication that is often found in practice is the use of photosensitizing drugs, that is, those that can provoke an abnormal skin reaction to sunlight and laser light. Such drugs include, for example, some antibiotics, tetracycline and doxycycline. Laser hair removal is not done for pregnant women. Also, patients who have a tendency to impaired healing, that is, the formation of keloid scars, tumors in places of injury, cannot use it, because after the intervention, the tightening of their skin may not proceed correctly. Patients with epilepsy should also be cautious, because any light impulse or pain can trigger an attack. In addition, antiepileptic drugs are photosensitizing agents. Hypertension, uncompensated diabetes are also among the contraindications, because healing after surgery in these patients may also be incorrect.
Laser hair removal is especially recommended for patients with a tendency to hair ingrowth.
Some people have a tendency to hair ingrowth, the appearance of inflammation. In their case, laser hair removal not only removes hair, but also heals the skin.
In the spring you should not start laser hair removal, because summer is coming
After each procedure, the hair begins to grow again, and then all or almost all fall out, and we begin a period of smooth skin, which lasts 4-8 weeks. Therefore, a month after the first session, you can go on vacation to sunbathe and have no problems with your hair. Procedures can be continued only after several months, when the tan comes off.
Laser hair removal painless
Truth / Myth
Laser pulses are palpable – as if by a shot or electric shock. As a rule, devices are equipped with systems that reduce these sensations. These are, for example, a cold gel, a cold laser tip, cooled air, or a special gas. But each patient perceives laser pulses individually. The rougher and thicker the hair, the more unpleasant the procedure. The most sensitive place is the bikini zone. If necessary, an anesthetic cream can be applied to the skin an hour before the procedure.
The procedure for laser hair removal does not require special training.
Hair pulling should be stopped at least 1 month before the procedure. You also can not get rid of them with depilator, wax or tweezers. This does not mean that the hair should be long: they can be shaved or cut with scissors. The laser destroys the hair follicles, so they must all remain in the skin. Only then will the treatment be as effective as possible.
The effectiveness of laser hair removal is the same for all
In general, the effectiveness of the procedure is estimated at 80-90 percent, the effect lasts for a long time. During the first consultation, the physician should evaluate the effectiveness of hair removal individually for each patient, since it depends on many factors. The darker the hair and the lighter the skin, the more effective the treatment of the skin.
