Everything You Need To Know About Laser Hair Removal

unnamed.jpgIf your like me you’ve been considering laser hair removal for years, it wasn’t until I was 30 that I finally said enough is enough I need to laser my legs. For most people the “pain” that comes with getting it done, and the price tag scares them off. But for me it has been a life changer! If you have hair that grows thick and fast, and are constantly getting razor burn or ingrown hairs, you need to try laser hair removal. I get my laser done with Juliana in Scottsdale, Arizona at Bellina Med Spa. If you are in Arizona I highly suggest the girls from Bellina Med Spa, when it comes to the world of beauty they are in the know. During my last laser treatment I had a Q&A with Juliana and ask her everything a women should know before getting her first treatment.

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL 

Laser hair removal targets hair follicles that are about to enter the (active) phase of hair growth, with the goal of destroying the follicle itself which will end hair growth to a specific area. The goal is to hit the different growth cycles of your hair, because not every follicle goes through each cycle at the same time and speed. Which leads us into the next question…

HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED

On average most people need 10-12 sessions. The length between sessions will depend on the body part your lasering. Facial hair sessions are spread to every 2-3 weeks, and then body hair like legs is every 6-8 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE TREATMENT

Because the goal is to hit the different growth cycles of your hair. You’re looking at a few months to complete treatment. It is important to remember that with each session your hair is going to become less dense and more fine.With each session you will notice that shaving becomes much easier with less razor burn and ingrown hairs. YAY!

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TREATMENTS

It is important to prepare your skin prior to each treatment. Make sure to shave prior to your treatment, and it helps not to be super tan prior to your session (so NO spray tan a few days prior).

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST

The price is going to vary based on the size of the treatment area, as well the med spa you choose to go tot (that is why I suggest Bellina Med Spa ). Most places will have a package deal of 5-6 treatments for X amount and then a smaller fee for yearly touch ups. But before you spend the money make sure that you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. If you have blond, gray or red hair ALL laser hair removal treatments WILL NOT respond the way you want because the laser targets melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle ( Just a friendly reminder! )
