laser hair removal underarms

Removing hair under your underarms is a standard procedure usually performed by most women every day.

According to various statistics, 77% of the world's female populace regularly remove hair from their underarms. But as you know, there is more than one way of removing hair under your underarms.

First, of course, shaving is the most common hair removal method, but as technology has advanced, other hair removal methods have become more mainstream.

Laser hair removal technology became mainstream in the early 90s. As a result, laser technology has become widespread and used by hundreds of thousands of men and women worldwide.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is removing hair by an IPL laser light which ends up destroying the hair follicle. Many people use this technology by visiting clinics or hair removal spas, but some use laser hair removal handsets that they can use at home, like our Bareskin device.

Women, especially, use laser technology on a weekly or monthly basis. But, as we all know, females can be sensitive about their bodies and care for themselves almost every day.

We have found that the whole process of waxing or plucking is just a waste of time. You can spend at least 2- 3 hours per week removing hair.

For this reason, both males and females are now opting to buy themselves a laser hair removal machine that they can use at home.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal has made life easier for a variety of people. (both male and female)

Most people have the problem of fast-growing underarm hair, which needs to shave or waxed daily. Other women have the issue of rough or wiry hair, which needs to be waxed or shaved every second or third day. Laser hair removal has solved all these problems.

Only have to use it once a week.
Using a laser hair removal device takes months for the hair to start regrowing, which is good. In addition, it works well for the users as they don't need to use the device daily. Some people even experience permanent laser hair removal because the hair follicles do not regrow and become permanently dormant.

It is fast
It would help if you kept in mind that it takes only a few minutes when using the laser device. So it saves you time and money, and you will enjoy the smoothness for a few months.

Used by both males and female
Hair removal is a problem for both the sexes (male and female), so many families have purchased the device for males and females. These families have saved a lot of money by using this system.

Long-lasting hair removal
In addition, many users using the Bareskin Device have noted that using the laser device under their arms can permanently remove the hairs under your arms for up to 5 months.

The first thing you need to do is to shave your underarms. You do this because you need to keep the hair below the surface.

Do not pluck or wax your underarm hairs for about five weeks, as the laser will target the root of the hair. Thus if you pluck or wax your hair, you will remove the hair from the root and make the IPL light useless.

You will not go for a cheap laser as it is a matter of your skin, and ultimately in case of any misshapen, you will pay for it a hundred times.  Do not purchase a cheap laser, as this would not be good for removing hair. In addition, cheap IPL lasers tend to break and not work as they should.

Many people fear hurting themselves during the process of hair removal, but if you use the correct tools, you will not feel any pain.

Instructions on how to perform laser hair removal on your underarms.

Prepare Your Skin:
Cleanse your underarms to remove any deodorant, lotion, or oil. Dry the skin thoroughly.

Use a shaver to shave your underarms.
It is better to shave the underarms before laser treatment (do not wax or epilate). Also, if you think you may experience pain, you should take two pain pills before using the device. Shaving and using the device under your underarms should not take more than 5 minutes.

Perform a Patch Test:
Conduct a patch test on a small area to check for skin sensitivity and adverse reactions. You are ready to go if you don't experience any adverse side effects.

Start the Treatment:
Place the device on your skin and trigger the laser according to the instructions. Glide or pulse the device over the underarm area.

After your first successful treatment, you will feel your underarms may have been in the sun for too long. Do not worry about this. Just a little bit of moisturizing cream will help you out. The cost of laser hair removal varies from area to area.

We advise that you opt for the Bareskin machine. (much cheaper in the long run, and you don't have to leave your home to use it). Most people do not experience any pain when using an IPL laser device.

Avoid Overlapping:
Ensure you do not overlap treated areas to prevent overexposure to the laser.

Follow Treatment Schedule:
If you want to continue the laser treatment, we suggest you develop a timetable and schedule for the next few months.

Post-Treatment Care:
Moisturize the treated area and avoid sun exposure. Follow any post-treatment care guidelines provided by us. Please read about post-care treatment after laser hair removal.
