Before Undergoing Laser Hair Removal

Cosmetic Hair Removal Industry

The cosmetic hair removal industry has come a long way since the first approved laser hair removal device was launched two decades ago. During the mid 1990’s when the first laser hair removal device was approved, the lasers were much slower, painful, and had the ability to work only with dark-haired, light-skinned patients. Although laser treatment permanently reduces the total number of body hairs, it will not result in the permanent removal of all hair. There are now numerous laser hair removal devices available on the market that are designed specifically for selective skin tones and hair types.


The Best Laser Device for Your Skin and Hair Type

It is always best to do some research prior to your consultation to clarify all your concerns and questions. For safety purposes, you want to ensure that you are satisfied and comfortable with both the clinic and the technician operating the equipment. With laser hair removal, you want to narrow down your options and find the best laser device for your skin and hair type, as each device is designed differently than others. There are different kinds of lasers that are commonly used for hair removal, including the Ruby laser, alexandrite laser, diode laser, intense laser, and long-pulse Nd:YAG laser. Aside the laser hair removal machine, the laser technician plays a huge role for this treatment. The laser technician will have full control over several factors that will customize the treatment for efficacy, safety, and comfort. The laser technician controls various settings such as the pulse length, delay, fluence, spot size, and cooling. When you hear the term “pulse length”, it refers to long-pulsed lasers, which are considered the safest among laser hair removal devices. Fluence is known as the selection of energy in levels that can be customized for the patient’s skin type. Delay settings are also important, as the time between pulses of light affects how much the skin and hair follicle can cool off.

How To Achieve Long-lasting Results?

To avoid any potential discomfort, cooling is basically your best friend for this treatment. Your skin will be protected by either a gel like lidocaine, a spray, or even a cooled tip pressed against the skin such as the Zimmer. Depending on whether you’re getting a small area or a large area done, your spot size is vital because it could affect the speed and penetration of the laser. The larger the spot size is, the deeper the penetration. A good selection of spot sizes helps the technician reach the hair at the depth at which it grows. To achieve long-lasting, smooth, hairless skin before undergoing the hair removal treatment, clarify and address all of your concerns and the potential outcomes before proceeding. It is very important to remember that a laser can eliminate hair only in its active growth phase, also known as the anagen phase. If you have any concerns or wish to have laser hair removal, please contact the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic today for your complimentary consultation.
