Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles below the skin. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair. That is why shaving is required before each treatment. Of course shaving the face in preparation for a laser hair removal treatment is necessary, it won’t cause more hair growth. The face is also an area where hormonal changes occur and can cause regrowth of new hairs which is not preventable with laser hair removal. Getting the dark hairs before they turn white or grey is important for effectiveness. No laser will reduce or permanently eliminate hair follicles on hair without pigment. Waxing is still a recommended method simply because there is a chance of damage to the hair follicle itself and can reduce hair density and thickness too.
Sunburned, irritated or areas with open skin can not be waxed.
No sun/tanning booths for two days following a waxing treatment. Extra precaution should be taken if using tanning accelerators. Wait 2-3 days to wax before/after tanning with accelerators.
Moles cannot be waxed.
You must wait a minimum of seven (7) days before waxing after a light chemical peel or Microdermabrasion.
Women may experience extra sensitivity to waxing up to a week before the beginning of their cycle.
