Who Is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal in our Boston, MA area office?
Some patients tend to have more success with this treatment than others. The ideal candidate for a laser hair removal in our Boston, MA office has dark hair and fair skin that tans instead of burning or freckling in the sun. This contrast in color between the skin and hair makes it easy to target the pigment in the hair follicles without damaging surrounding skin. A tolerance for intense light exposure reduces the risk of unwanted side effects such as burning or hyperpigmentation (dark spots). However, patients with a wide range of skin and hair colors can enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal if the correct equipment and settings are used.
Tips for Successful Laser Hair Removal Treatment in our Boston, MA area office
Don’t shave for several days prior to treatment (leave stubble in place). That way, the technician will be able to see what areas to treat clearly. If you have recently waxed or used hair removal creams, wait for hair to grow back before treatment.
Avoid sun exposure on the area to be treated as directed prior to and after treatment. Use sun block to avoid sunburn and developing darks spots on your skin. Don’t use a tanning bed at all. Be sure to disclose any medications you are taking since some prescription drugs increase the risk of hyperpigmentation.
