Are you not satisfied with the results of your laser hair removal sessions? Or maybe you are just thinking of trying laser hair removal and want to get the best results out of it?
We prepared a few tips on how to improve the results of your laser hair removal.
Before the appointment
Shave a night before the appointment
A lot of people have a misconception that laser targets the hair, however laser targets the follicle and not hir itself. The less shaven you are, the more painful the experience would be because the laser will burn your hair. So make sure you shave thoroughly without missing the spots. Why not shave right before the appointment? You are not allowed to receive any kind of laser treatment on a damaged skin. No matter how careful you are, your razor is likely to leave cuts and damages, so you want to make sure that your skin heals at night.
During the appointment
It is good when you feel heat and pinching
Some people think that feeling heat/pinching is wrong when it indicates shows the effectiveness of the procedure. It shouldn’t be burning hot, more like a warm sensation on your skin. Pinching occurs when laser reaches your follicle. Needless to say, the more laser removal sessions you do, the less pinching you feel.
Always let your laser technician know how you feel to make sure you will be getting the best results but also prevent burning.
After the appointment
Don’t shave at least 10 days
A lot of people expect immediate results just like after waxing. However, it isn’t like laser hair removal works. Within 10 days your hair will shed and that is when you will see the change. However, it is very important that you do as less damage to your skin as possible. Try to shave as little as possible between your laser hair removal sessions.
Don’t do any physical activity on the same day
The day you receive your laser hair removal treatment your skin gets sensitive and less defensive against bacteria. In order to prevent any inflammatory processes, just stay away from the gym for a day. Also, make sure you keep the treated area clean.

The market of tattoo inks is quite various, therefore each one of them penetrates the skin in a different extent. Make sure you schedule a consultation before your procedure to discuss the nuances of your upcoming procedure.
does laser really help with wrinkles?
It is in human nature to seek remedies and tools for anti-aging. We all want to look out best. With the laser treatment market expanding, you are probably wondering: does laser really help with wrinkles?
Today we are here to talk about a relatively new word in laser skin rejuvenation – Fractional Carbon Dioxide CO2 Laser.
How does it actually work?
The fractional CO2 laser takes a laser beam and breaks or pixelates it into thousands of tiny light shafts. Those shafts penetrate deep layers of the skin. After that skin repairs itself by getting rid of old sun-damaged or wrinkled layers of skin and producing new young ones.
What happens to your old skin?
It simply peels off. The recovery process can last up to a month, but the results might be astonishing. You will notice the improvements with redness and skin texture within a week. Fractional CO2 Laser encourages the collagen production, so you would notice the improvement in your skin appearance and feel.
Is it painful?
Yes, it is. However, with help of the anesthetic gels and creams, the pain will be reduced.
How many treatments do you need?
Even though you will notice the improvement in wrinkle and fine reduction right away, it is recommended to have 2-3 treatments for the best results.

why should you switch from wax to laser hair removal?
Every woman who does wax hair removal once in a while thinks about switching to laser hair removal. Let us explain why it might be a good solution for you.
Wax is painful
An old tale has it that laser hair removal is a painful procedure. However, if you ask people who actually did laser hair removal, you will find out that they usually describe it as “tingling sensation, almost like someone is popping air bubbles”. And how would you describe your experience with wax? Hot sticky burning wax leaving irritated spots for a few days. And let’s be honest. It hurts. Even if you do wax for the 20th time, it still hurts.
The laser hair removal can actually save you money
If you look up laser hair removal prices right now, you might find them quite unaffordable. Especially if you compare the price of the wax session to a price of laser hair removal session. However, if you really think about it, you have to do wax every month. Your hair does not disappear, it just gets thinner. Whereas the interval between laser hair removal sessions is 4-6 weeks and you only need 5-8 sessions. So in a long perspective, laser hair removal is even more affordable. You pay a significant amount of money and you are done.
Laser hair removal provides silky smooth skin
After wax hair removal, you get a silky smooth hairless feeling for 1-3 days (depending on how fast your hair grow). Laser hair removal, on the other hand, makes silky smooth feel almost permanent. So no more embarrassing moments.
No more itchy burning spot on your skin
You switch from razor to waxing in order to avoid irritation and bumps on the skin. Unfortunately, what you usually get after waxing is not far from it. Red burning spots on the skin is the most common complaint of wax hair removal customers. Also, keep in mind, that laser hair removal might have side effects as well. In rare cases, people report redness and mild skin irritation which usually goes away in 1-2 days.
