When it comes to effective, non-invasive treatments for hair loss, laser hair removal takes the cake. While other methods such as shaving and waxing are more cost-effective in the moment, when you sit back and add up the total amount of expenses for razors, shaving cream and wax in a year the total may come as a shock. Compare that to laser hair removal and you’ll see entirely different benefits you wouldn’t normally see with shaving and waxing.

Here at Beauty Fairy, we want to discuss everything laser hair removal related, and discuss what you will need to expect before going in for an appointment. This way, you know everything there is to know and lower your risk of any potential complications. After all, the last thing you’d want to do is waste your time and money.

The Perfect Candidate

Just like almost every medical procedure, there are certain requirements you will need to have before ensuring the procedure can be done/completed properly. Some common questions that laser hair removal specialists will ask include:

  • Do you have skin cancer/have a history of skin cancer?
  • When was the last time you shaved?
  • Do you take any medication that interferes with your sensitivity to sunlight? If so, are you currently taking them or have you stopped using them for a minimum of six months?
  • How often do you expose yourself to the sun in an average week?
  • Have you had this type of procedure done on you before?
  • Do you suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)?
  • When was the last time you waxed?

Knowing these questions beforehand can help you in determining whether or not you are the right fit for this type of treatment early on.

Is It Safe?

When anyone brings up the idea of medical procedures, especially beauty centered ones, there will always be the question of whether or not it is safe. Rest assured that if these treatments were not safe, our experts at Beauty Fairy would not be performing them.

When it comes to laser hair removal, so long as you meet the requirements and have the right skin type/shade for the procedure, this process is completely safe. There are some precautions you might want to be aware of, however. When people mention their experiences with laser hair removal, some people will say it was a bit uncomfortable at most. This feeling will entirely depend on your pain tolerance, but most people who get it done say it’s completely bearable and nowhere near as painful as the alternative (AKA waxing!). 

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

While we can never directly answer this question as every person and treatment area is different, our team recommends anywhere from six to ten sessions, spaced four to eight weeks apart. As briefly mentioned, this number will vary based on the amount of hair, where it is being done, how much area is being covered, etc., but this is a good general baseline.
