Laser treatment is one of the most effective ways for hair removal. Cosmetologists now are starting to use laser hair removal in Miami area as their standard treatment for removing hair but its effectiveness can easily be affected if patients are not careful. Cosmetologists recommend doing a few things to ensure that their treatment has the best effect for their patients
Shaving your hair is an important step before your laser treatment. Laser treatment makes use of heat and light to destroy stem cells in the hair follicle. When the hair on the targeted area is still too long, your skin may be burned in the process. Waxing should not be a substitute for shaving before treatment as well because for effective treatment there should be some hair on the follicle. Basically, you want hair on the follicle but not above the skin.
Another mistake patients make is laser hair removal is a single treatment. To have a permanent removal of hair on the targeted area it is essential that you are consistent with your treatment otherwise, hair will grow again. Most patients will typically need 5 sessions over a one month to 2 month period. The hair follicle needs to be have repeated burning to have a long lasting effect. If not done consistently, hair can grow back within 6 months of treatment.
It is also advised that you go to a professional cosmetologist for treatment. This will ensure that you get the best possible result and have the least amount of side effects. Before making an appointment you want to be sure that they are not only professionals but that they regularly administer treatment. A well-known spa like Avalon Medical Spa that has professionals that do it regularly is bound to be better at treatment than those who do it once or twice a month.
