More and more people are considering laser hair removal. However, it is quite different from other self-care treatments that may be relaxing or enjoyable. The payoff, however, is worth it, as you will be hair-free at the end of the process.

Here are our top 5 things to know before starting your laser hair removal.

It isn’t pain-free

Although the process itself isn’t necessarily painful, it isn’t pain-free either. There are some areas that are more sensitive than others, so ask questions of your beautician prior to embarking on the treatment.

It brings results

This is probably why these treatments are becoming more and more popular. Depending on your hair, you will most likely see visible results after only two treatments. However, you need to be committed to your appointments and follow through as it does take time to get the result you’re looking for.

You have to avoid sun exposure afterward

This is really important, especially if you want to undergo the treatments in the summer. Make sure you discuss this with your dermatologist or GP about your lifestyle and the best time of year to get laser hair removal.

In some cases, it might generate more growth

There are rare cases in which a laser treatment might actually make some types of hairs grow thicker and stronger. Usually, though, your dermatologist will inform you whether your hair is suitable for laser treatment or not, so make sure you always seek consultation before committing to any process.

It can be costly

These treatments are pricey – so you should know what to expect. Make sure you discuss the price issue prior to commencing the treatment so that you aren’t caught off guard.

On a final note, you should know what to expect of laser hair removal beforehand. Such treatments aren’t necessarily right for everyone, so make sure you weigh the pros and cons.
