But when you have already got assigned for a laser hair removal treatment, you will need to be concerned about the ways you are following to remove the hairs.

According to doctors and trainers of laser hair removal treatments, you should not wax or tweeze for at least 6 weeks before the first session. The reason to this fact is that, if you tweeze of wax the hairs, then you are removing the root of the hair which has to be targeted by the laser during the treatment. If the laser cannot target the root of the hair, then it will stay untreated and the hair growth will continue even after the ongoing session of the treatment. Also, the hair has to be in its active stage of the growth so that the parameters needed to destroy the hair permanently are present in it. So the treatment will become inactive if you have plucked or waxed the hairs 6 weeks prior to the treatment.
You can follow two possible ways before the laser hair removal treatment and they are – shaving or using depilatory creams. In both ways, the root of the hair will remain untreated so that it will help to get targeted during the treatment. The tip of the hair shaft which has grown out through the skin can be removed by using a razor. It is advised to avoid shaving for 1-2 weeks before the session so that the stubble can remain visible on the day of the treatment. You must use a clean and new razor to shave the unwanted hairs to avoid any lingering bacteria which may cause irritations or allergies on your skin. The next way you can follow is using depilatories. Though it is not preferred by most of the people because of the chemical and smell of this product but it is an effective way to remove your body hairs which can last up to for 2 weeks. Depilatories are cream or liquid that dissolves the hair from the skin’s surface by reacting with the protein structure of the hair. They work fast and available in any drugstores. Sensitive skin may react by the use of depilatories so you must ensure that you don’t have any skin disease before you apply these products.
