FOR YOUR LASER VISIT
Prepare for your Laser Hair Removal visit
Here is an easy guide with our top recommendations to make your laser hair removal treatments effective, comfortable and most importantly safe!
Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks before and after your treatment.
Recently tanned skin cannot be treated. This includes tan from tanning beds, creams, and bronzers.
Always wear Sunscreen SPF 50 or higher.
Avoid heat exposure like saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzis, extremely hot showers or strenuous activities for a minimum of 48-hours post-treatment.
No working out for at least 24hrs post-treatment.
Just say no to plucking, waxing, epilating, tweezing, or threading… shaving is the only option before/after sessions. And don’t forget to shave the area we are treating within 24hrs of your appointment.
Up to 2-weeks post-treatment, you may notice hair falling out of the treated areas. This is not new growth, this is your laser treatment working! (Note: You can clean/remove the hair by washing or wiping the area with a wet cloth.)
Treatments are not allowed until 14 days after the final dose of any antibiotic or photosensitizing medications (Examples: antibiotics, steroids, St. Johns Wort).
Accutane must be stopped 9 months before laser treatments.
Over-the-counter Retin-A, Retinols, Glycolics, Salicylics should be avoided on the treatment area 3 days prior to treatment.
Prescription-strength Retin-A, Retinols, Glycolics, Salicylics should be avoided on the treatment area 3 days prior to treatment.
