How Should I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
After coming into The Laser Treatment Clinic for an initial consultation, our skincare experts will discuss with you a personalised treatment plan for your specific requirements; dependant on what these are will indicate how many treatments you will need and how long each session will take. For example, if it is a small area like the face or under arms, this could take around 20 minutes, but for a larger area like the legs, back or chest will take much longer.
To prepare for laser hair removal it is necessary to keep the hair in the area to a minimum without removing the hair follicle, e.g. shaving, cutting or using depilatory cream is recommended, whilst waxing or plucking will remove the follicle and limit the effectiveness of the laser on the hair.
Generally speaking, most men will usually require between 6 – 12 treatments to get the full benefits of laser hair removal in the area being treated, and we recommend you wait 4-6 weeks between each session; therefore, whilst the treatment is not necessarily a ‘quick fix’ it is certainly is a permanent one.
