What precautions should I take throughout my laser hair removal treatments?
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before your treatment, wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning your treatments. Do not bleach, pluck or wax during your course of treatments.
Is there any difference receiving laser hair removal as a man?
There are almost no differences between laser hair removal for men and women. The one key factor is that for men, the number of treatments required can be higher. This is due to the high testosterone levels in men’s bodies, which contribute to the higher quantity of hair that men have in comparison to women.
How long a gap do I need between treatments?
For treatments on your face, you will need a four-week gap between appointments and for treatments on the body you will need about a six-week gap. This is because the hair cycle on these different types of hairs varies slightly and it is important to catch the hair during an active stage.
Will it hurt?
There is some mild discomfort but nothing unbearable. It is often described as similar to having an elastic band pinged against your skin.
