Follow safe practices to get the best results from laser hair reduction near Damascus, MD
Laser hair removal treatments continue to grow in popularity. The Washington Dermatology Center provides excellent hair reduction to patients from Rockville, Frederick, and more. We want our patients to obtain the smooth skin that they want and expect, and offer tips for how to get the bestresults from laser hair reduction in the Damascus area.
Schedule laser hair reduction during a time of year when tanning can be avoided
Dermatologists advise patients to practice excellent sun protection at all times due to the damage that comes from UV exposure. While sunshine is a good source of vitamin D, only small “doses” of natural sunlight are necessary and healthy. Today’s laser technology is efficient on a wide variety of skin types and tones. However, laser hair reduction may be most efficient and comfortable on un-tanned skin.
Continuing other methods of hair removal
Laser hair reduction is a type of treatment that takes a few months to achieve results that last. In this time frame, treatment sessions will be performed every few weeks. Though it is possible to continue shaving in between visits, removing hair by tweezing or waxing should be avoided. In order for subsequent visits to be effective, there must be hair in hair follicles.
Talk with your dermatologist about medication use prior to treatments
Skin sensitivity before laser hair reduction is something we want to avoid. During consultation for treatment, it is important to discuss any medications that are currently being taken or applied to the skin.
Enjoy smooth, silky skin
Within several weeks of laser hair reduction treatments, you can have the smooth, silky skin that you love. Skin should be protected throughout and after laser hair reduction with the use of broad spectrum sunscreen during outdoor activities and high quality lotion that delivers moisture and soothing nutrients to the skin.
