Laser hair removal is a trendy and painless way of removing natural hairs. It can be used to remove hairs from the underarms, legs, and bikini region. The cost also depends on the specific area which is treated.
Since it is a painless process, you don’t have to worry. You also don’t even have to prepare much. However, it does not mean you can move ahead with the procedure without physical and emotional preparations. Here are some things to do to be fully prepared.
Wash the specific area
You need to wash the area which will be subject to hair removal. You have to keep it clean so that infections will not happen. You can do this at home, but you can also do it in the clinic upon arrival. You may shave the part first so that it will be easier to use the laser on the said area. However, some clinics will have someone to shave anyway, so it is not a problem. Just don’t pluck the hairs though as it could cause rashes and red spots.
Check if you have cuts
There are instances in which we have already injured ourselves, but we did not notice as the pain is so slight. It is not recommended to ask for laser hair removal when you have cuts. The same thing is true with other forms of infection on or near the region which will be treated.
Take oral medication if prescribed
There are instances in which you have to take medicines as specified by the doctor due to the nature of your skin or your tolerance to pain. Take it only when advised.
Check if the practitioner does the right steps
During the day of the hair removal, you need to check if the clinic develops the proper measures. To begin with, you must be asked to remove your clothing especially in the region where the procedure will take place. The assistant will shave you if there are still lots of hairs. Once the area is ready, you will be asked to wear eye protection because of the laser. These are all essential steps before the treatment, so if you do not do them, ask the practitioner why.
Things to do when something goes wrong
You have already done your part preparing for the procedure. You can expect things to go on smoothly. If not, it is not your fault. The moment you suffer from burns from laser hair removal, you have to seek medical treatment from a medical doctor. It could be excruciating, and the recovery could take a while. You should also be ready to consider beauty treatment claims. The medical cost is quite high. You might not perform your activities well while recovering. The beauty clinic must be held accountable, and you should do everything with the help of a lawyer, so they will pay for what they have done. You went inside hoping to get better results and not the other way around.
