Waxing and laser hair removal may seem like two similar hair removal methods, but they are fundamentally different. Waxing involves removing hair from the root using hot wax, while laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light to destroy hair follicles. While waxing can effectively remove hair, it can also cause damage to the hair follicle, making it harder for the laser to target the hair follicle during your laser hair removal session.
Another reason to avoid waxing before your hair laser session is that waxing can leave your skin irritated and sensitive. This can make your skin more prone to irritation or damage during your SILKIPL process. Additionally, waxing can lead to ingrown hairs, which can also complicate the laser hair removal process.
It is recommended that you avoid waxing, plucking, or threading at least four weeks before your SILKIPL session. This is because laser hair removal targets the hair follicle’s pigment, and these methods can remove the pigment, making it harder for the laser to effectively target the hair follicle.
If you’re planning on getting laser hair removal with SILKIPL, it’s important to follow the pre-treatment guidelines to ensure optimal results. Avoiding waxing is just one of the many steps you can take to prepare for your hair laser session.
