What You Need To Know Before Shopping For Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Laser Hair Removal Treatment has steadily grown in popularity. People who laser their hair away comment that they feel confident and rejuvenated afterwards. They save time, stress, money, and pain from waxing and shaving. New advancements in technology have made this procedure easier and cost-effective. These individual treatments take roughly 10 minutes and are spaced several weeks apart.

But not all laser hair removal treatments are made equal. For every reputable and honest skincare clinic, there is a shady treatment center. These dubious establishments don’t mind cutting corners and tend to focus on quantity over quality. When it comes to the health and care of your body, it is important to be a smart consumer.

Throughout the years, DermaTouch RN (a Houston-based skincare clinic) has received many clients; some are not new to the laser hair removal process. They have told their horror stories of botched and ineffective laser removal at seemingly reputable clinics. Don’t let this happen to you. We have compiled several tips that will hopefully guide you in making an informed choice in finding a qualified laser removal technician.

Are you a good candidate for this procedure? Laser hair removal works by targeting the darker pigments in hair follicles. In the past, this has meant that the best candidates were those with lighter skin or darker body hair. However, recent developments in technology have made it possible to accommodate many combinations of skin tone and hair coloring.

If you have darker skin or light hair, be sure to consult with your prospective technician about the results you can achieve.  Keep in mind that skin care businesses with older pieces equipment may not be equipped for this. You do not want to risk skin discoloration. Ask about the equipment being used.

Get to know your technician. The training, experience, and education of your technician are important. While the machines and equipment used plays a large part in your procedure’s success, it can produce less-than-ideal results without a qualified technician. A good skincare clinic is like a well-run orchestra. The machines are the instruments and the technician is the conductor. The conductor/technician is responsible for setting the pace and regulating the flow behind the laser.

Many technicians within this field are medical aestheticians – a license that is typically given after a one-year program. Others are Registered Nurses, an official title received after 4 years of intense work. They have the added bonus of having a strong grasp on healthcare and anatomy, while having the necessary esthetic training. In either case, make sure to ask about their experience and training.

Beware Cheap Treatments and “Crazy” Discounts. Some skin care centers will try to push “packages” at you. They generally offer a series of treatments at “unbelievable” prices.  It is a hefty investment – one that they want you to make in advance. Before you sign the dotted line, please consider what you are receiving closely. Even if your skin requires 4 treatments, they will try and hook you into a package with more, at an additional cost. A reputable skincare clinic would push honesty rather than the bottom line.

The skincare clinic also must maintain quality machinery. This is generally not conducive to offering “crazy” or deceptive prices. As with everything in life, you get what you pay for.

There is no such thing as guaranteed results. Every person is different. It is impossible to predict results. You may experience permanent hair removal or you may be experience continued minimal growth. Studies have shown that people experience an average reduction of hair loss at about 80%. Of course, some people experience less and some people experience more.

If your skincare clinic is promising “guaranteed” or “permanent” hair loss, it may be best to look elsewhere for hair removal. Their goal is luring customers in with false promises rather than letting their work speak for itself.

It is not pain free. Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is trying really hard to sell you this treatment. Most people who have had hair removal treatments have reported mild pain or discomfort. Considering the potential gain and no recovery-time, it is still a worthwhile procedure.  It is a far better long-term solution than waxing, which can be even more painful.

Risks and Side Effects. As with all medical treatments, minor or otherwise, you may experience certain side effects. It is natural for there to be discomfort or swelling in the treatment area for days afterwards. You may experience temporary discoloration, bruising, freckles, or scab formations. In rare cases, discoloration is permanent.

Please be sure to inform your technician if you have any skin infection or other bacterial infection. If the procedure is still right for you, they can employ additional safety precautions.

Obtain a Consultation. A qualified technician will be able to work with your unique needs and medical history to create a suitable treatment plan. Depending on the area you are targeting, this plan may consist of 4 to 6 treatment sessions. This is also the perfect time to ask questions and make sure this is the right skincare center for you. Ask about their equipment, possible follow-up sessions, and potential experience. A business with transparent procedures and a great track record is what you are looking for.

Pre-Treatment Preparation. Once you have decided on a reputable and experienced skincare clinic, it is time to countdown until your treatment date. In the four to five weeks before this date, be sure to avoid extended exposure to sunlight and tanning (spay tan or otherwise). Depending on the hair area you want laser removed, you make be asked to shave days in advance. Be sure to discuss this with your technician.

Take the time to ask questions and carefully research your skincare center. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about your technician’s experience and training. Keep in mind that the best hair removal clinics do not need to rely on gimmicks, half-truths, and pricing. This procedure is an investment of time and money on your part. You deserve the best care possible. Make an informed decision.
