**Preparation for Laser Hair Removal: The 10-Day Rule**
Diving into the realm of laser hair removal in Tampa? Preparation is as essential as the procedure itself. At Perfectly Bare Laser, Tampa MedSpa, we prioritize ensuring our clients are well-informed about every step of their laser journey, right from the start to get rid of unwanted hairs.
Many are familiar with traditional methods of hair removal - tweezing, waxing, and threading, unwanted hairs to name a few. However, what many don't realize is the lasting impact of these procedures on the hair growth cycle. When you tweeze, wax, or use any technique that pulls out hair from the root, it takes approximately 10 days for that hair to regrow and become visible again.
Now, why is this significant for laser hair removal? For the laser to effectively target and damage hair follicles, the hair needs to be present. If you've recently waxed or tweezed, those hair follicles are empty, making the laser treatment less effective.
Therefore, we recommend a simple rule: abstain from any hair removal methods that pull the hair from its roots for at least 10 days prior to your appointment. Trimming or shaving, which only cut the hair at the surface, are permissible and, in fact, necessary. For best results, ensure you trim or shave the treatment area a day before your session. This ensures the hair is short, reducing any surface burns, and the skin remains non-irritated, facilitating a smooth and effective treatment.
Armed with this knowledge, you're one step closer to achieving that dream of silky-smooth skin with Perfectly Bare Laser, Tampa MedSpa.
