What happens if you laser without shaving?
If you don't shave before your laser appointment, the laser will singe the hair and could burn your skin. And if the hair hasn't been appropriately shaved, treatment will not be as effective, resulting in minor temporary scrapes on the top layer of your skin.
Why do I have more hair after laser?
After laser hair removal, you may notice more hair in the next one to three weeks. This is because follicles in the growing cycle begin to shed, which is why laser hair removal requires multiple sessions to target every hair at every growth phase. Once swelling and redness have disappeared, exfoliating the skin can help hairs shed faster, leaving skin feeling smoother.
