While there are many laser treatment options, laser hair removal remains one of the most popular. Whether it be shaving or waxing, both can be daunting tasks for your client’s sensitive skin. Some of your client’s struggles will be sensitive skin that is easily irritated, and redness can occur quickly. Instead of smooth skin as your client’s desired result, these hair removal methods as well as irritating fragrances that come with the accompanying products can often lead to rashes and pain.

Sensitive skin

Laser hair removal offers your client a safer alternative than constant razor usage across the skin or pulling hot wax to remove hair. Using the right laser with proper pre and post-treatment will spare your client’s sensitive skin from irritation and give them even more reason to come back.

At Laseraid we offer your clinic and your client’s a professional overview of everything you need to consider when you’re working with sensitive skin to ensure maximum results for your clients.

Effective and permanent hair removal

Not only does your client benefit from the above-mentioned, but permanent laser hair removal is also a cost-effective and convenient option for your client’s with sensitive skin. Seeing that hair regrowth can only take about 1 to 2 days after shaving and 2 to 3 weeks after waxing, sensitive skin is very likely to react badly. Therefore, using Laseraid’s Candela’s GentleMax Pro will help to effectively and permanently reduce hair growth without irritating sensitive skin.

Additionally, your client’s skin might also suffer from different side effects from shaving or waxing, such as a dark shadow underneath the skin or ingrown hair. These are enough reasons to make any skin type have side effects, not to mention sensitive skin. Whereas a laser will slow down your hair’s ability to grow without damaging the skin’s surface, so even your client’s with the most sensitive skin can be treated easily.

Pre-treatment options

Laser treatment should be tailored to your client. Your clinic should hold an in-depth consultation with your client before their treatment and find out whether your client has sensitive skin or other medical complaints. If your client’s skin is inflamed or damaged, any sort of laser treatment should never be carried out. Additionally, it is advised to carry out tests and with the information your client provides, treatment options can be adjusted to your client’s skin and give them the best results possible. Lastly, it is important to give your client’s, especially with sensitive skin a patch test to see how their skin reacts to avoid problems after their treatment.

Post-treatment consultation

It is important to note that if your client’s skin is going to be irritated, it most likely wouldn’t be the laser itself, but rather the creams and lotions that are applied after the laser treatment. Your clinic will have to make sure to use products designed for sensitive skin and don’t use anything that can easily irritate your client’s skin. Only specifically recommended products should be used to minimise any side effects from unknown fragrances on your client’s skin.

No “One size fits all”

While your client might have preferred different forms of hair removal before, there might still occur some side effects with laser hair removal. It is important for your clinic to communicate to your client that while lasers are a much safer and more effective way of hair removal with sensitive skin, lasers still bring some redness and pain with them.

If your clients with sensitive skin are looking for a very good hair removal option, their best solution will be to go to a reliable laser hair removal clinic. Laseraid offers your clinic the right tools (Lasers) to take care of your client’s sensitive skin and give them all their desired results.
