Unwanted body hair is a common issue that annoys a lot of people around the globe. In order to remove them, there are many treatment options that have been used for a long time. Typically shaving, waxing and plucking are the preferred options.
However, laser hair removal in Dubai is the ideal treatment as it offer the best results. It also removes the hair permanently which does not happen with the traditional options. It is however important that the treatment is done properly and all the pre cares and post cares are followed.
Let’s take a look at the important pre care steps for a laser hair removal session which are important for the success to be achieved.
No plucking or waxing
In order for the laser treatment to be successful, it is important for the roots of the hair to be intact. The treatment works to shrink the size of the follicles which eventually stop reproducing hair. Waxing and plucking remove the roots and therefore should not be done. These should be avoided for a few weeks ahead of the laser hair removal session.
Tanning darkens the skin which is not desirable in case of laser hair removal Dubai. The idea is to have a clear difference in the tone of the skin and the hair so that the melanin in the follicles can be targeted. Apart from tanning under the sun, any tannin creams should be avoided for at least a month before the treatment gets underway.
Shave before treatment session
Shaving the area to be treated on the day or a day before is important as the laser must be absorbed by the follicles. If the hair are on the surface and not shaven, they will be heated up which will lead to burns on surface.
Remove any lotions
Ensure that no creams or lotions are applied in the area to be treated. If you are wearing any deodorant or fragrance, it needs to be removed as well. A quick cleanse before the start of the treatment should be good enough.
Take recommended medications
It is possible that the doctor may recommend some medications prior to the treatment which you should take. These will help you in avoiding issues after the treatment. These medications are generally antibiotics which help in avoiding any infections.
Wear loose clothing
Wearing loose clothing is also important which can be quite useful after the treatment has been concluded. Since the skin after the treatment is sensitive, loose clothing is very helpful. Be sure that the clothing covers the treated area since the skin becomes sensitive to sunlight.
