There are a few things you can do to ensure that your laser hair removal treatments in Northern Virginia yield the most satisfying results.

After all, the reason anyone gets laser hair removal treatments is that they are sick and tired of the money and time that go into alternative hair removal options.

So, before you begin your treatments, keep these tips in mind!

Stick to the Schedule

Laser hair removal treatments are planned on an intentional schedule based on the growth cycle of your hair.

Because of this, it is so important that you pre-schedule your treatment sessions and that you never cancel.

Skipping or delaying treatments will only set you back in the long run and may require that you return for more treatments than originally prescribed.

No Tweezing or Waxing

When you tweeze or wax your hair you are removing the entire hair follicle.

The lasers used to remove hair do so by targeting the hair at the base, which means it is necessary that the hair be present to effectively remove.

Shave Strategically

While you may not be able to wax or tweeze your hair, shaving is acceptable and even encouraged.

This is because when you shave your hair the hair follicle is still intact and can be targeted with the laser technology.

The best thing you can do for great results is to shave the treatment area the day before your session.

This creates less hair for the laser to contact which results in a more comfortable and effective treatment session.

Avoid Sun Exposure

Before and during your laser treatments it is crucial that you avoid sun exposure as your skin will be extremely sensitive and prone to burring.
