If you’re considering having laser hair removal done at OBGYN High Desert, there are some things you need to think about before scheduling the procedure. The first is why you’re interested in having hair removed from your body. Is it to save you time waxing, shaving, and tweezing?

Next, you’ll want to think about the area of the body that you want laser hair removal treatment done. Is it your underarms, stomach, bikini area or legs? Do you prefer a combination of the areas?

Preparation for Laser Hair Removal

Now that you’re clear as to why you want the procedure done and where you want treatment to take place, you can then start preparing for laser hair removal. Dr. Ahmadinia gives thorough instructions on how to do just that. For example, you must not tan, use self-tanning lotions or sprays, and spend time outside in the sun for four weeks before the treatment.

This ensures best results. You’ll also need to refrain from shaving, waxing, tweezing, plucking or clipping the area that will be treated. This keeps it from becoming red and irritated.

As your body recovers from laser hair removal surgery, you’ll want to take good care of it. For starters, you’ll need to invest in some good sunscreen. You’ll want SPF 30 or SPF 50 that you can use for at least four weeks after the procedure takes place.

You’ll also want to invest in some aloe vera lotion. It helps soothe warm areas of the skin and also help with swelling caused by the surgery. Keep in mind that although a warm shower does feel comforting, hot water can actually aggravate the treated area so proceed with caution.

Don’t let unsightly hair embarrass you any longer. You have options that are well worth the investment. Laser hair removal surgery is safe, reliable, and virtually painless.

As long as you follow the tips listed above you shouldn’t experience any problems with the procedure. If you do, however, forget to wear sunscreen or spend a long amount of time in the sun, you may regret it. That’s why it’s very important to take good care to protect yourself and the treated area when going outdoors.
