When it’s the big day for the bride, she wants her skin to feel silky smooth, and look gorgeous.  One thing she has to consider is getting that unwanted ingrown hair removed.  So when should the bride-to-be book laser hair removal sessions?  There are several things that brides should know – even starting a few months before the wedding date to have the best success.

Most Successful Candidates

The first thing that brides need to know is which skin and hair type that works best when laser hair removal is the best choice.  For those brides with light skin and darker hair are the best candidates for this method of hair removal.  And one aspect that many brides won’t like a lot is that when the skin is tanned, lasers can cause discoloration, and darker skinned brides need to make sure when they make the appointment that the correct laser machine is used.  The laser light basically targets the darker pigment in the hair and destroys the melanin in the hair to remove the hair, which is why it can also cause discoloration in the skin.  The hair will fall out within 10 days to two weeks.

Starting the Treatments

Brides should realize that it takes up to six sessions to remove up to 80 percent of the hair growth, which must be spaced around four weeks apart.  This means brides should start these laser hair removal treatments up to six months prior to their wedding.   Once these are done, the rate of ingrown hair growth is generally significantly less and most laser technicians recommend maintenance treatments continue once every year.  These treatments are generally expensive, and generally start at $200 a session for a smaller area.

Preparations and Pain Factor

Many brides are very concerned about the pain of getting the laser treatment done and wondering how much it will hurt.  Most people state that the pulse of the light feels like a rubber band hitting the skin, and some areas of the body are slightly more sensitive to the stinging than others.  Most recommend that if aspirin or ibuprofen are taken an hour before the treatment begins to minimize the pain.

In general, most technicians recommend shaving the area three to four days prior to the treatment because there has to be some growth in order for the treatment to work effectively.  Never shave the area on the day of the treatment.

Since the hair follicle is killed during the laser treatment there is no concern for in-grown hair.  The hair will generally fall out about 10 days after the treatment.  Therefore, brides need to look at their calendars and also make notes of how soon the hair falls out from the treatments that were done over the previous six months and make sure the last treatment prior to the wedding is ten to 14 days before the big day.

Success with Smooth Skin

As the brides are planning everything for months before the wedding, they often ask “When should the bride-to-be book laser hair removal sessions?”  The answer is they should start about six months prior and make sure the last treatment is about 10 days before the wedding.
