What if you could put on a dress at the last minute without worrying about shaving under your arms? How much time would you save if you could go to the beach without shaving your legs? If you’re tired of spending extra time and effort removing unwanted hair, laser hair removal is a great solution.
Laser hair removal can be life-changing. Imagine never having to shave or wax the hair on your legs, bikini area, underarms, or any other spot that bothers you. Never worry about ingrown hairs, missing a spot, or cutting yourself with a razor again.
Overall, the treatment process takes some time,so you will go for laser treatments every 6-8 weeks until the hair is treated fully. Usually, you’ll see results sooner rather than later, but it’s important to finish out your treatment plan to prevent the hair from growing back.
Reducing Pain During Laser Hair Removal Treatment
While laser hair removal can be uncomfortable, there are things you can do to help and prepare before your procedure. You can take ibuprofen an hour before the appointment, reduce your anxiety by breathing deeply and focusing on something that makes you happy, and even chat with your laser hair removal professional during the treatment. With their experience, they understand that it can be uncomfortable so they will do everything to make you comfortable and at ease.
Skip Coffee to Reduce Pain
Surprisingly, one of the best things you can do before your appointment is to avoid caffeine. Yes, that means skipping your morning coffee. Sometimes you need to make extra sacrifices for beauty, and this is one of those times.
Caffeine increases skin sensitivity and affects your nerves. Between heightened nerves that increase anxiety and lowered pain tolerance due to increased sensitivity, caffeine can make your appointment more uncomfortable.
Therefore, if you want to reduce pain during treatment, you might try skipping caffeine for up to 24 hours before. To make this easier, try scheduling your appointments first thing in the morning. Forgoing your normal cup of coffee will be well worth it.
Food and Drinks to Avoid
Here is a list of some foods and drinks that you should consider avoiding before your procedure:
- Iced Tea
- Energy Drinks
- Sugary cereals and yogurts
This is by no means a comprehensive list, but if you are concerned that something has caffeine in it, just don’t eat or drink it.
There’s no evidence showing that you shouldn’t have caffeine after your laser hair removal procedure. Once you’re finished with your appointment, you can grab a cup of coffee or a soda.
