Are you tired of having to resort to hair removal creams that can be time consuming to use or fed up with getting your skin nicked by a blade every time you shave? Escape the torture and throw away the razor and ditch those creams. Instead opt for a more permanent hair removal option that is much more effective and makes use of the latest technologies in laser hair removal to give you a smooth, silky hair free body.
According to the Suncorp Cost of Good Looking report, personal grooming for woman at home can take as long as one and a half hours per week with 52 percent of Australian women admitting to caring about their appearance. Think of what you could do with that time less spent on grooming.
For laser hair removal to be effective, you will need more than one treatment session to get rid of body hair permanently. This is discussed with you on consultation. Your practitioner will also go through in detail how best to protect your skin before and after a laser treatment.
In the meantime, here are a few tips to keep top of mind to ensure your laser hair removal procedures are effective.
Avoid plucking or waxing. Avoid plucking or waxing (these get rid of hair follicles) the area to receive laser treatment at least six weeks before your procedure. Lasers work best by removing hair follicles that are still intact. If you need to manage hair growth until your appointment, shaving is a better option.
Avoid sun exposure. Limit being out in the sun before and after treatment for at least six weeks. The effects of sun exposure may give rise to side effects or problems. Skin that has undergone laser treatments are that much more vulnerable to the effects of the sun. Be extra vigilant about applying a good sunscreen product.
Apply a calming cream. After each laser treatment soothe the skin with a calming cream. This will help with any redness, itchiness or discomfort you may feel.
Exfoliate. Exfoliating the skin very gently after a laser session helps to get rid of dead hair cells. A simple wash cloth or loofah sponge will do.
Don’t resign yourself to itchy skin or dry skin caused by shaving and waxing. The Victoria Dermal Group offers quality laser hair removal treatments in Melbourne so that you need never pick up a blade again.
