Did you know that fall is the best time to start a laser hair removal treatment? The reason for this is because this process takes several months, and sun exposure is strictly not allowed during a laser hair removal treatment. Sun exposure before or after a laser hair removal treatment can burn your skin and cause discoloration. Now that we are in October, this is the perfect time to start a laser treatment. Here are some things you need to know about laser hair removal.
1. Not all lasers are the same. There are many lasers that can be used to remove hair, and each laser type has different strengths, works on certain skin tones and types, and offers different results. Your laser technician will know which laser type is best for you.
2. You can’t remove gray hairs. Once your hair is gray, the laser will have problems detecting the follicle and can not permanently remove the hair.
3. It takes multiple sessions to get “permanent” results. Even after a year of consistent removal, certain factors like hormones, age, environment, and diet can re-stimulate hair growth.
You can laser away unwanted hair at home to slow the growth of hair by using the RoseSkin Co handheld IPL laser.
