Underarm hair removal
Underarm hair removal is an intervention that virtually eliminates all the hair under the arms. In general, underarm hair is considered a sign of letting go, but underarm hair removal has the advantage of limiting the smell of perspiration. Indeed, the shaved armpits retain less smell.
To undergo underarm hair removal, the ideal is to have very clear skin and dark hair. However, dark or tan skin may also be appropriate for this treatment, although the laser intensity would be lower.
Generally, underarm hair is very responsive to laser hair removal because the hair is very pigmented and full of melanin and can be eliminated in just a few sessions.
Underarm hair removal: session
The growth under the armpits is quite slow, the sessions are between 8 and 10 weeks apart. It typically takes between 6 and 8 sessions of underarm hair removal for optimum results. Each session lasts about ten minutes.
Before an underarm hair removal, a first consultation with a medical specialist is required and enables him to know your ancestry, but also your desires concerning this intervention. It is also an opportunity for him to examine your skin and hair to assess the number of sessions and the intensity of the laser needed during the hair removal process.
The day of your first session, the practitioner will check your skin and armpits. If they're not properly shaved, he might have to do it himself. To avoid feeling pain during the session, a numbing cream is applied to your armpits beforehand.
Then he gives you the protective glasses that you have to wear during the session. He proceeds to set the laser and to control the intensity of the laser, he performs a test on a small part of your body. When you experience needle-like pain, the laser is adjusted properly.
He then proceeds to scan the area using a handpiece that emits light pulses. The doctor be careful of the possible presence of any fluff on the inner side of the arm.
The skin on this area of the body is very thin. In the hours following the session, you may have redness. After the session, the doctor will use a cream (Biaphine or Cicalfate) to prevent irritation. It is better to avoid putting deodorant on directly after the session because the skin may be sensitive for a few hours.
