Is laser hair removal right for me?

How should I prepare for my treatment?

It’s vital to follow pre-treatment instructions before undergoing laser hair removal sessions at Shira Laser. Protect your skin from the sun, avoid tanning beds, and don’t use other hair removal methods for several weeks. Your specialist might ask you to shave specific areas the day before your scheduled appointment.

What can I expect during laser hair removal?

Before treatment, your provider gives you goggles to protect your eyes and cleans and numbs the treatment areas. To ensure you remain comfortable throughout treatment, the laser system features a cooling device that calms, soothes, and protects your skin. 

Laser treatment works by emitting laser beams into targeted tissues, where hair follicles absorb the light. Heat then damages the follicles, inhibiting the ability to regrow.

What happens after laser hair removal?

After laser hair removal, the treated areas are often tender, swollen, or red, but these side effects are temporary. During the next few days and weeks, the treated hair sheds. Multiple treatment sessions (often 8-12) offer maximum, long-lasting results that target hair follicles in all phases of the hair growth cycle.
