Do your research before scheduling an appointment 

You shouldn’t trust everyone who says they offer the best laser hair removal in Cincinnati. Often times, people claim to have credentials, but don’t really have anything to show for it. 
When done by a trained technician, the laser hair removal has very few side effects, if any at all. But if you go to someone who doesn’t have much experience or understand the proper technique, you could suffer from blistering, burning, discoloration, or even blindness. That’s the opposite of what you’d want. 
Make sure that you ask questions. You shouldn’t feel bad for asking how many years of experience a technician has; this is your skin after all. If you’re ever feeling unsure about a facility, definitely look elsewhere. 

Properly prepare for the best laser hair removal in Cincinnati

To maximize your hair reduction benefits, be sure to follow the guidelines outlined during your consultation. All of these are meant to make your laser hair removal treatment more effective and long term. 
Do not wax or pluck. Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicle. When you wax or pluck, you remove the follicle, which takes away all the effectiveness of the treatment. 
Shave the area. Waxing is a don’t, but shaving is definitely a must. If you have hair in the area, the laser may burn it and cause more harm than good. 
Let your tan fade. The laser targets the brown pigment melanin in the hair follicle. But when you’re tan, there’s more melanin in your skin. Instead of leaving the skin around the hair unharmed, the laser may cause blotchiness and discoloration. Therefore, you should schedule your appointment at least two weeks after direct sunlight exposure for optimal results. 

Follow post-treatment instructions
