What to expect during laser hair removal

The laser equipment will be calibrated- according to the color, thickness, and location of the hair you remove, as well as your skin tone.

The technician will then apply a light pulse to the treatment area and monitor it for a few minutes to make_ sure that the best parameters are being- used and that no side effects have occurred.
After the operation, you may be -given a pack of ice, anti-inflammatory cream, or lotion- cold water to relieve the discomfort. Your treatment can be scheduled- for four to six weeks. You will continue the treatment until your hair stops growing.
