If you're thinking of having IPL or laser hair removal the following points might be useful:
- Hair must be kept short (no more than a day or so growth before treatment) and shaved not waxed
- Treatments can only be adminstered around every five weeks
- The skin should be treated as sunburned afterwards - so no sun exposure, hot baths etc and no shaving for a day or two
- Several treatments are usually required for a good result - complete elimination of the hair is not the norm - with hormonal changes such as pregnancy it may grow back. The idea is to drastically reduce hair growth and make it much more manageable - then have top up treatments every so often as and when needed.
