Most women spend hours of their week trying to remove unwanted hair. There are a lot of hair removal solutions on the market, but most are temporary, some are painful, and many will even cause unwanted hair to grow back thicker than before. If you’re tired of constantly tweezing, shaving, plucking, and waxing unwanted hair, there is a more permanent solution. Cambridge Laser offers laser hair removal for women in Middlesex County and Cambridge MA. Call us today for a free consultation
About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal for women relies on a small laser that is designed to singe the hair follicle without causing harm to the surrounding skin. The laser relies on the melanin in your hair to absorb heat in order to permanently discourage the follicle from growing hair. Because hair grows in cycles, you will need multiple treatments to achieve effective reduction in hair growth.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
There is no magic number of treatments that is guaranteed to work for everyone. On average, most people see results after between six and twelve sessions. The number of sessions you’ll need depends on where you want the hair removed and your individual hair type. When you call in to schedule a few consultation, our experienced techs will be able to give you more information.
What to Expect
Laser hair removal for women is not completely painless, but it is a lot less painful then waxing. For most individuals, the laser feels like a rubber band that’s been flicked against the skin, followed by a cooling sensation to soothe the area.
At Cambridge laser, we offer a variety of hair removal solutions and our techs are expertly trained to make the procedure as comfortable and effective as possible. Have more questions? Contact us for a free consulation.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal for Women
You’ll want to shave before your appointment. However, you do need to avoid waxing, plucking, depilation creams, and skin lightening treatments for up to five weeks before your laser hair removal.
If you are taking medications such as antibiotics and Accutane, or if you have taken Accutane in the last six months, it is important to notify our staff when you schedule the appointment to ensure that we are able to provide you with the best possible service. If you are pregnant, or think you may be pregnant, it may be best to hold off on laser hair removal.
After Your Appointment
The hair removal area may become red after the appointment and remain red for several hours after. This is perfectly normal and will go away on its own.
Keep in mind that you’ll want to avoid sweating, makeup, and creams for up to twenty-four hours after your appointment and that you’ll need to stay out of the sun for about two weeks after laser hair removal, so plan accordingly.
