LASER HAIR REMOVAL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Summer has just about arrived throughout Southern Wisconsin and here at Total Body Laser Skin Care of Madison & Milwaukee this is our peak time for Laser Hair Removal Treatments. Laser Hair Removal has become increasingly popular for both woman and men across the county. Our expert staff combined with our state of the art laser hair removal equipment delivers amazing results to patients from Madison to Milwaukee every day. Part of the treatment process at Total Body Laser Skin Care is educating our clients and answering a wide variety of questions for them. Shaving around the scheduled treatment is a popular one.
Q. SHOULD I SHAVE OR WAX BEFORE HAVING LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Laser hair removal works by directly targeting the follicle, where hair grows. A concentrated pulse of light energy is harmlessly beamed through the skin into the hair follicle. The pigment in your hair absorbs the heat and light from our laser and damages the hair follicle without harming the skin surface. The hair follicle must be intact to successfully remove the hair through Laser Treatment so we request our patients arrive cleanly shaven before their scheduled appointment. Please do not wax or pluck as you’ll temporarily remove the hair from the follicle. The laser has nothing to target without the hair which will result in an ineffective treatment. Our Licenses Laser Technicians also recommend our clients do not apply any lotions, creams, or deodorants before their Laser Hair Removal session.
