Why do I need to shave?

Category: Laser

A lot of our clients ask why they have to shave before a laser hair removal session. Because laser hair removal works by shooting energy at the targeted hair and follicle, we want to make sure that the majority of the energy is focused on the shaft of hair under the skin and the follicle for best results. We don’t want to waste the energy singeing the hair on top of the skin and reducing the amount of energy directed at the follicle. You can’t wax, thread, or sugar the area because we need the follicle to be in tact underneath the skin for the laser to actually damage with the energy. Since all those methods remove the hair from the root, your laser hair removal will not be effective.
