Should I pluck after Laser Treatment ?

Question
Hi
It's great to find this forum.
I have a question - for christmas I was bought a home laser kit which I needed and now love.
Thing is that after I have treated a hair I then pull it out with my tweezers. The majority of hairs I remove I can not feel when they come out so I assume this is good.
Is it ok to pull out the hair straight after treatment or a couple of days after or should I leave them?
I love to see the little suckers fry!
Please advise

That's interesting. It would be nice if you kept us updated on the results. Some of us are a little skeptical about home-use lasers. I think you should leave the hairs (instead of plucking them) to see if the thing is really working. It it is working, the hair should shed on its own later. That would be a goooood indicator if the laser is working or not.
Does this laser treat one hair at a time? Do you shave the hair before you apply the laser? How long do you have to "fry" the hair before it appears to have been destroyed?

Answer
Thanks for your reply
Will keep the forum updated. Certain hairs that I fried about a week ago have come through now. I pulled them out and could not feel a thing. I will take your advice and leave an area to shed to see the results.
With my kit I have to treat one hair at a time. No matter to me as I decide on an area to treat on a particular evening and do no more - I routinely get the kit out when I have some quiet time. I have to make sure the hair is 1 - 2 mm in length so on areas where it is unsuitable to shave eg chest (! ) I cut them to the required size.
Frying time is immediate in most cases as long as I get the angle right.
I have now got to show my best friend how to use it so she can get to the parts I can't reach. Well they do say friends love you no matter what!

Answer
yes, would appreciate if you keep us updated. most people who have tried these home products found that they just don't have enough energy to actually kill the hair. so, the results is more of a tedious pucking. would be interested in hearing about your experience as it progresses. what device are you using? also, what do instructions say about the way to remove hair? do they say the hair should shed or you should pull them out with tweezers right away?

Answer
I do agree it is tedious in the extreme - hopefully the effort is worth it.
The instructions talk about shedding the hair - but I find cosmetically I want to be rid of the hair straight away, which is why I removed each hair ( I can never wait for anything!).
I was bought the Rio Salon laser hair removal kit

Answer
even with professional laser treatments, you need to give 2-3 weeks for the hair to shed. plucking before that undermines the effort.
