What should be done before and after treatment?

Before your laser hair removal appointment we ask you to follow several guidelines in order to ensure maximum results. Please shave the area to be treated a day before your laser treatment. The less hair on the skin during treatment will make the treatment more comfortable. Avoid the sun 2 to 3 weeks before and after treatment, until your technician allows it. You must not bleach, pluck or wax for 3 weeks prior to your treatment. It is OK to resume shaving of the hair in the treated area 3-4 days after treatment.

You should not have waxing, plucking or electrolysis done after receiving our laser hair removal treatment, because these procedures will temporarily remove pigmented hairs from their roots and reduce the effectiveness of your next laser treatment. Sometimes after plucking or waxing, the hair becomes thicker and darker–as one of the ways the body defends itself from chronic irritation. Shaving is the best temporary way to remove unwanted hair before and between laser hair removal treatments. Shaving leaves the hair shafts in the hair follicles so they can be targeted during the next laser treatment, optimizing your results.
