Why can’t I pluck after laser?

Why can’t I pluck after laser? And how come I still have hair after doing laser hair removal? Are you considering laser hair removal, but not quite clear on how it works? You’ve come to the right place! As the best laser hair removal clinic in London, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with up-to-date, reliable, and easy-to-understand information about the laser hair removal process. One question we often hear is – Why can’t I pluck my hair after laser treatment?

Understanding the laser hair removal process

Before we delve into the do’s and don’ts post-treatment, it’s important to understand how laser hair removal works. The procedure involves using a concentrated light beam (laser) that converts into heat, damaging the hair follicles, which in turn inhibits future hair growth. It is a safe laser hair removal method when performed by experts and can deliver long-lasting results.

Why can’t I pluck after laser?

Now, why can’t you pluck your hair after receiving laser treatment? Quite simply, plucking disrupts the natural hair growth cycle that laser hair removal targets. When you pluck a hair, you remove it from the root. This means that there’s no hair for the laser to target during your next session, which can ultimately make the treatment less effective.

Not only does it undermine your progress, but plucking post-laser treatment can also cause irritation and potential damage to your skin, which we want to avoid for safe laser hair removal.

What to do instead

It’s completely normal to have some hair regrowth between your laser hair removal sessions. Instead of plucking, consider other options such as shaving. While it might seem counterintuitive, shaving won’t interfere with the laser’s ability to target your hair follicles, ensuring your laser hair removal journey continues smoothly.

At our London clinic, our laser hair removal experts will guide you through the entire process, offering personalised advice tailored to your needs, skin type and hair growth pattern. This helps us provide you a superior, safe laser hair removal experience.
