Laser Hair Removal for Sensitive Skin


Laser Hair Removal for Sensitive Skin

There are many shaving products that are available for sensitive skin, but the chore of shaving day in and day out can still cause pain, especially if your skin is super sensitive. One alternative is waxing but – let’s be honest – that’s normally anything but soothing for your skin; and most creams that are available on the market doesn’t always work and live up to their advertised promise.

So what’s a girl (or guy) to do if you have sensitive skin? Have you ever considered laser hair removal as it may be good option for you. There are the popular opinions that laser hair removal is an extreme measure and something that is not ideal if your skin is sensitive.  But by looking into it closely, the option may be the most viable option to take as it works well for most areas such as the face, legs, and arms and back. How it Works The laser is targeted only on the hair – not the skin around it.

The laser’s energy is absorbed the pigments in the hair and the hair growth is destroyed. An important tip to remember is that the dark pigment of the hair is what attracts the laser when in use, so try not to tan and protect your skin from the sun for at least a month before and after having the treatment done. Instant Results The best thing about laser hair treatment is how most people see the results almost instantly once the treatment is done, however it’s best to remember that the results can vary; it depends on a number of things such as the pigment of your skin, the colour and thickness of the hair and what laser is being used. Expect Repeat Treatments

While this might sound amazing and before you rush out to book an appointment, it’s important to remember that any laser hair removal treatment will almost certainly require multiple sessions.  An extract from The City Hair Removal’s website reads: “(…) multiple treatments are necessary to treat hair at other stages of growth. Treatment is conducted every 4 weeks on the face and 6-7 weeks on the body.

The required number of treatments varies, but usually 6-8 are needed for optimum results.” While this might sound like a little bit of a downside, the second treatment can be booked in about a month but this varies once again on what area you have treated. Side Effects As with most beauty regimes there are a few side effects, nothing to worry about and if you are worried then please feel free to talk to a therapist before booking as they can talk you through the procedure.

The most common side effect is redness, slight swelling and mild discomfort. When choosing City Hair Removal London please feel free to check credentials and ask any question you might have, also feel free to ask for a basic consultation and skin evaluations.  If a qualified professional cannot answer any of questions then the result for the skin could be non optimum, however with City Hair Removal London you never have to worry and we will always have your best interests at heart, especially for sensitive skin.
