Laser hair removal is quickly becoming a very popular option for those looking for permanent hair removal. However, laser hair removal is not for everyone. To find out if laser hair removal is right for you, take a look at some of the following tips.

1. Realize that laser hair removal works best on dark hair with light skin. Of course, this doesnt mean that you have to be the perfect candidate to have success. Its best to visit a clinic to find out whether or not laser hair removal will be beneficial for you.

Some have also found an alternative option to work well. This includes artificially darkening light hairs in order for the laser to properly target them.

2. Make sure you get a consultation! Youll want to meet the technician and have him or her perform a test pulse before you commit to anything. Youll want to find a clinic that is dedicated to your needs. Every laser hair removal treatment is different depending on the persons skin and hair type. Find a clinic with a friendly and informative staff that is committed to your results. Dont be afraid to shop around.

3. Avoid tweezing and waxing for at least 6 weeks before your treatment. The key is to avoid removing hair by the roots during this time.

4. During the treatment, expect some pain. Im certainly not going to lie to you and tell you that this is a painless process. However, it is certainly bearable. It is often described as a rubber band slapping your skin or tweezing multiple hairs at once.

Provide your technician with some feedback regarding your pain. This will allow them to supply you with the proper coolants or numbing creams. They may also decide to adjust the intensity of the laser.
