If you are sick and tired of the stubborn stubble and considering getting laser hair removal, there are some important facts you need to know. Read on to understand some key facts about laser hair removal that will ensure you get the best results from your treatments!

2) It is not permanent. 
The myth with laser hair removal is that it is permanent, but sadly it is not. You will most likely need to go in once or twice a year for touch ups to stop hair growth. 

3) Sun exposure before and after treatment is a huge no-no.
 
Exposing your skin to the sun before or after treatment can cause serious discolouration. It may be a good idea to get laser hair removal during the winter months.

4) Laser hair works best for those with thick, dark hair. 
The darker the hair, the easier it is for the laser to target it, which is why those with dark hair are the best candidates for laser hair removal. 

5) You will have to go in for touch ups. 
Going back to point #2, touch ups are very common for those who swear by laser hair removal. After your full sessions are completely, you may need to get touch ups to get rid of any hair re-growth.

6) You will see results after 3 sessions. 
Most people expect smooth, hairless skin after the first session but for the majority, it takes at least 3 sessions to see results.

7) You cannot wax/pluck the treated area. 
The only method of hair removal post your treatment(s) is shaving. Avoid waxing or plucking at all costs and let the hair fall from the follicle on it's own.
