Yes, the laser will have minimal contact with the skin. Use on low and medium settings.
Should I use other hair removal methods also?
No, the BNB Laser process requires that the hair be active in the follicle. If the hair is removed prior to treatments, the laser will not be effective.
Where do I aim the laser?
NEVER AIM THE LASER AT THE EYES.
It is important to aim the laser at the root of the hair. This is where the base of the hair meets the skin. Shorter hairs will make aiming easier as it is easier to see the root. It may be necessary to trim certain areas before beginning treatments.
