Why get laser hair removal in Mexico?

For many of us, unwanted hair is the bane of our lives. Removing it is often a messy nuisance and the results are far shorter-lasting than we’d like. Laser hair removal does provide a long-lasting result BUT it does require multiple sessions to stop the hair growth entirely. It isn’t a quick-fix solution so if you are considering laser hair removal in Mexico, you will have to be prepared to travel back for subsequent treatment sessions. The amount of treatments required is anything between 6 and 12, so as a one-off holiday procedure it isn’t really advisable. If you travel to Mexico frequently, or you live in the southern United States and it is not too far to travel over the border, then laser hair removal in Mexico could be an option.

As with any medical or cosmetic procedure overseas, it is imperative you do your research beforehand. Find out about the effectiveness of a particular treatment for someone in your circumstances For example, laser hair removal works best for people with light skin and dark hair, so if you are blonde, white, grey or red-haired it may not be successful.

Doing the research beforehand also extends to the clinic you have earmarked for the treatment. Is the clinic established and reliable? What qualifications do the practitioners have? Are there testimonials from previous patients?

Medical Departures background checks all the clinics listed on our website. This includes legal and criminal records, as well as qualifications and professional memberships. Real patient testimonials are another important part of our quality measures, and so too are clinic visits, where we assess for ourselves hygiene and safety procedures. We publish our findings, and high-definition photos of the clinics, on our website, so our patients can make their own decisions with all the relevant information available to them.

What is the procedure for laser hair removal?

According to the variables of the location of the area of hair to be treated, color, thickness and your skin type, there are different laser hair removal devices. Some (Alexandrite and pulsed Light) are not suitable on tanned or dark skin, where Nd:YAG and Diode should be used instead. A reliable practitioner should be able to guide you through the various options, and explain the suitability of particular devices in relation to your situation.

The actual length of each treatment session will also vary, depending on the area you are having treated and now many hairs there are, but for a large area it is usually up to an hour.
Before the treatment begins the hairs in the area to be treated may be trimmed or shaved which makes it easier for the light to penetrate down the hair shaft to the root. You will be given protective eyewear, and a small test area will be done first and checked for adverse reactions before the full treatment is started.

What is the recovery time for laser hair removal?

The treatment is uncomfortable, rather than painful, and once the treatment has ended you may have anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs applied to your skin to soothe it. You should notice your skin to be smoother, and any redness will die-down after an hour or two.

Further treatments are recommended 4 – 8 weeks later, and eventually you will notice the hair regrowth becoming scarcer and finer until, ultimately, it stops coming back altogether.

What is the cost of laser hair removal in Mexico compared to the United States and Canada?
