When you’ve made a commitment and spent a large amount of money on laser hair removal, it’s obvious that you’re prepared to do anything to see the best return on your investment. But your consultation may have lacked the information you need. Or it was just too much information to digest at once. So let see why shaving is important? And what happens if you don’t shave before laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal step by step
The laser emits a light which is picked up by the pigment in your hair. Here the light turns into heat that has to reach the root of your hair. For this to work the hair has to be attached to the follicle, but not visible above the surface of the skin.
What happens if you don’t shave before laser hair removal?
Quite simply the hair will absorb the energy that was meant to penetrate under the skin in the first place. The energy would burn the hair, leaving the skin with marks and scarring. While wasting away on the surface level of the skin. And ultimately not giving you the results you’re expecting, and paid for in the first place.
Not to mention; if your hair is dry shaven on the day, your skin may be more sensitive and irritated. Or in worst case even left with cuts which would make your skin more prone the an adverse reaction. Plus feel a lot more sensitive during the laser treatment.
If you ‘re alone and treating areas such as the back; which is hard to manage on your own; please discuss with your practitioner. Usually they be able to offer you complimentary shaving the day before your actual treatment.
