If shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair is something you’re not happy to do, then laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely. Dr Nicolaides and his team custom set the laser equipment, adjusting it according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
