Laser Hair Removal Prep Cincinnati Plastic Surgery

Laser Hair Removal Prep

Are you tired of having to shave or wax on a regular basis to achieve soft, smooth skin? Even though it’s colder outside, you may be thinking ahead to next summer and the joys of warmer weather. If you spent a lot of time last summer shaving and waxing instead of spending time with those you care about, you’ll probably want to change that for next summer. And with laser hair removal from Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we can help make that happen. Here’s the laser hair removal prep you’ll want to think about before scheduling your consultation.

What is Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses a specialized laser that targets the root of hair and destroys the follicle. Once the follicle is destroyed, body hair won’t grow back. In order to have the maximum amount of hair loss, we’ll use our M22 laser to perform multiple treatments (about five to eight) over several months. There’s also no downtime associated with the treatments, so you can leave following each treatment. Once your treatments end, you’ll experience 80 percent less body hair than before. Say goodbye to shaving and waxing when you let Cincinnati Plastic Surgery perform laser hair removal.

What Areas Receive Treatment

In theory, any area on your body that has body hair can benefit from laser hair removal. Over the years, we’ve seen more common areas that people typically choose for their laser hair removal treatments. Some of those areas include:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Neck
  • Bikini line

If you’re interested in laser hair removal, we’ll go over what area or areas you want treatments during your consultation to see if the treatments are optimal for you.

Are the Lasers Safe

The lasers used during laser hair removal are safe for all skin types. Our laser is also to easy to use, so all you’ll need to do is relax and come ready for your treatments.

Best Ways to Prepare for Treatments

In order to maximize your treatments, you’ll want to shave about 24 hours before coming in for your appointments. This makes it easier for the laser to find the hair root and follicle. Additionally, you’ll want to wear comfortable clothing that are easy to take off and put on, especially if your bikini area is receiving treatment. You may notice hair patchiness that will go away as you progress with your treatments, so don’t worry about that. Additionally, you may experience some redness following laser hair removal. This happens to many people, so don’t worry. You can use aloe vera cream to alleviate the redness you may have.
