How to prepare yourself for the treatment?
Although it may seem like an easy procedure when we hear lasers “just zapping ” unwanted hair, it is, in fact, a medical procedure with potential risks. Before you go in for a laser hair removal in Dubai, thoroughly check the credentials of your doctor who performs the procedure. Prior to the procedure, you must limit plucking, waxing and electrolysis for at least 6 weeks before the treatment. This helps the laser target your hair roots better, which will otherwise be temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. Your doctor will also ask you to avoid direct sunlight for at least 6 weeks before and after the treatment, as exposure to the sun can create complications or nullify the effects of the procedure.

Before you are taken in for the procedure, your hair will be trimmed to a few millimetres above the skin. Then the laser machine is calibrated according to the colour of your hair, it’s thickness, the area being treated and the colour of your skin. Your skin will be protected using a cold gel or any other cooling technique. This helps the laser penetrate the skin better and give desired results. Once you are prepped up for the procedure, your technician will give a light pulse to the area to be treated. After checking for reactions, the procedure is continued until the last of the follicle is destroyed. Once the procedure is completed, anti-inflammatory creams, ice packs o cold water is used to ease any discomforts. Your next schedule will be fixed for some time later in the 4th or 6th week after the procedure. The procedure is continued until the hair stops growing completely.
Are there any risks involved?
Although blisters occur rarely, they are not completely ruled out. They are mostly seen in people with darker skin tone. While you are out in the sun, never forget to wear a sunscreen to prevent discolouration of the skin.
How long is the recovery time?
After the procedure, your skin will look sunburned for a day or two, which can be treated by using some cold compresses and moisturize. As long as your skin is without any blisters, you can start wearing the makeup.
