Laser Hair Removal For A Big Event: 3 Tips For Success

Some people like to undergo laser hair removal treatment in preparation for their big moment, whether it is a wedding, dream vacation, or another significant event. This move is great if you want to look your best and feel confident. Yet, there are some crucial details to remember if you want to have the best experience possible.

1. Plan Accordingly

Do yourself a huge favor and start the laser hair removal process almost a year before your big day. The hair removal process is not something that can be completed overnight. Depending on how your hair grows and the removal site, it could easily take several treatments for hair to be removed. 

More importantly, treatments are typically spaced out by about a month. So, you need time for the treatment to be completed if you want to be hair free on your special day. Let the technician know about the date of your big event so they can help you plan treatments accordingly. 

2. Practice Sun Care

Make sure you practice sun care in the immediate days after each removal treatment. Laser hair removal works, in part, by injecting bursts of light into the skin to destroy the follicle and ultimately stop hair growth. However, this blasting process makes the skin susceptible to sun damage post-treatment. 

An increased risk of sun damage means that unprotected exposure to the sun could result in areas of hyperpigmentation, including hyperpigmentation that could still be visible when your big day rolls around, as not all hyperpigmentation can be corrected. Try to cover up as much as possible, wear sunscreen, and minimize your time in the sun. 

3. Avoid the Spa

Again, you must allow your skin time to heal and rejuvenate after each removal session. For this reason, while self-care is always positive, you should avoid the spa for a period after each treatment. In terms of massage, the extra pressure applied during treatment can cause the skin around the treated area to become irritated. 

The same is true regarding chemical treatments, especially when it comes to hair removal on the face since this skin is naturally more sensitive. If the skin is still irritated by the time your next session rolls around, you will have to reschedule the session. Each time you have to reschedule, it pushes back the date that your treatment will be complete, which might overlap your big event.
