What Should I Expect During and After Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate unwanted body hair. Here’s what you can expect during and after the treatment:

During the Treatment:

  1. Consultation: Before the procedure, you’ll typically have a consultation with a trained professional to discuss your medical history, skin type, and expectations.
  2. Preparation: You may be asked to shave the treatment area a day or two before your session. Avoid waxing, plucking, or electrolysis, as these methods remove the hair follicle, which is necessary for the laser to target.
  3. Protective eyewear: Both you and the technician will wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser light.
  4. Sensations: During the treatment, you may feel a mild snapping or stinging sensation as the laser targets the hair follicles. 

After the Treatment:

  1. Immediate effects: You may experience some redness and swelling immediately after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours.
  2. Hair shedding: Over the following days and weeks, the treated hair will gradually fall out. It may appear as if the hair is growing back at first, but it’s likely just being expelled from the follicle.
  3. Sun protection: It’s important to protect the treated area from sun exposure, as it can increase the risk of complications such as hyperpigmentation or skin discoloration.
  4. Multiple sessions: Laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to target hair follicles in different stages of the growth cycle.
