Outside of treatment
Before as well as after the treatment, the skin should be protected as well, since the skin is irritated by the light during the treatment. However, in order for your skin to calm down as quickly as possible, it makes sense to avoid intensive sun exposure before and after the treatment. This also includes a visit to the solarium. If you expose yourself to intense sunlight too soon, hypopigmentation may occur.
In permanent hair removal*, the growth cycle of the hair plays a significant role. For a treatment to be effective, the hair must be in the active cycle. This means that the hair must be in the growth cycle. In this phase, the hairs have an active connection to the hair root, which is essential for the onward transport of light to the hair root. This cycle changes every 4 weeks, so the treatments should also take place in this cycle. Unfortunately, only about 10% of the hair is in the active phase, so several treatments are necessary before hair can no longer grow back.
