You have done the research on laser hair removal. You know how much you will be saving in the long run; it’s a lot by the way. According to Statistic Brain, the average woman spends over $10,000 on shaving related products during her lifetime. She also shaves 12 times each month and each session takes a little over 10 minutes. This means that every single month, a woman will spend two hours each month on grooming alone. But not anymore.
You have chosen to go with laser hair removal in Melbourne, FL here at Fountain of You, Brevard County’s premier anti-aging and aesthetic clinic. Our team of professionals is here to help you look and feel your best. One way many of our clients do this is by undergoing laser hair removal. This process may take a few sessions to complete depending on things like your personal hair growth cycle, hair type, and hair location. However, the results are well worth the wait. Now that you have chosen to have your bikini area serviced with our LightSheer INFINITY laser hair removal system, you may have some questions regarding how to prepare for your appointment. Here are some tips to ease your mind and get you started on the right path.
No Plucking and No Waxing
Once you chose bikini laser hair removal at Fountain of You, you need to stop waxing and plucking the area. We say this because any hair removal method that pulls hair directly from the root will affect the hair growth cycle. The same goes for electrolysis treatments. It is best to avoid hair removal in any of these forms prior to laser hair removal.
Avoid Sun Exposure
You need to stay out of the sun (or tanning bed) for up to 6 weeks before your treatment. If your skin is tanned or burned, qualified clinicians will avoid treating the area because adverse effects could occur. Play it safe and keep your bikini area out of the sun before your appointments.
This may seem counterintuitive based on our recommendation to avoid removing hair from the root, but the explanation is simple. Shaving does not remove hair from the root, just from the surface of your skin. The laser will be able to detect the hairs, even if you cannot, but the session will be more comfortable to you as you have no hairs visible above the surface. Another bonus is that your clinician will be able to detect your hair growth lines and make your treatment more effective. Every office is different, so check with Fountain of You regarding at what time pre-treatment you should shave.
Take an Anti-Inflammatory
You may want to take an anti-inflammatory before your appointment. Our LightSheer INFINITY is an incredible machine and gives you maximum results in a shorter amount of time with minimal discomfort. However, you may want to prepare your body beforehand by taking an ibuprofen.
Congratulations on making a decision to do something that will change your life. No more shaving, waxing, or electrolysis for you. Live free and enjoy a smooth bikini area from now on.
