Unwanted facial hair can complicate your life, whether it is bushy eyebrows, sideburns, an above-the-lip moustache, or unsightly hair on the chin. If you are unhappy or uncomfortable with the hair on your face, laser hair removal can help you say “good-bye” to shaving, tweezing, creams, and waxing.
How Do I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal in Houston?
After a consultation, Dr. Siegel will offer specific instructions on how to prepare for your first laser hair removal session. General instructions for preparation include:
- Staying out of the sun
- Avoiding any sunless tanning creams that darken the skin
- Avoiding blood-thinning medications
- Avoiding other hair removal methods, such as waxing, plucking, and electrolysis
- Shaving the area to be treated the day before laser treatment
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
In most cases, a series of two to six treatments is required to achieve optimal results. The interval between treatments will depend on the treatment area. For example, treatments on the upper lip may be scheduled four to eight weeks apart, while treatments on the back may be 12 to 16 weeks apart.
