FAQs

How do I prepare for my upcoming laser hair removal treatment?2023-06-28T15:47:34+00:00

Preparing for your upcoming laser hair removal appointment is important to ensure the best results and minimize any potential discomfort or side effects. Here are some steps you can take to prepare:

  1. Shave the treatment area: It’s recommended to shave the treatment area the day before or the day of your appointment. This helps the laser target the hair follicles more effectively without singeing the hair above the skin’s surface.
  2. Avoid sun exposure: Limit sun exposure and tanning beds for at least four weeks before your appointment. Sunburned or tanned skin can be more sensitive to laser treatment and may increase the risk of side effects such as skin discoloration.
  3. Avoid other hair removal methods: Refrain from waxing, plucking, or using depilatory creams in the treatment area for at least four weeks prior to your laser hair removal session. These methods remove the hair follicles, which need to be present for the laser to effectively target them.
  4. Avoid using self-tanning products: If you use self-tanning products, it’s important to stop applying them at least two weeks before your appointment. These products can darken the skin and interfere with the laser’s ability to target the hair follicles accurately.
  5. Keep the treatment area clean and free from lotions or creams: On the day of your appointment, make sure the treatment area is clean and free from any lotions, creams, or oils. This allows the laser to penetrate the skin more effectively and reduces the risk of skin reactions.
  6. Inform your provider of any changes in medication or medical conditions: If there have been any changes in your medication or if you have developed any medical conditions since your consultation, inform your laser hair removal provider before the treatment begins. Certain medications or conditions may affect the suitability of the treatment or require adjustments in the laser settings.
  7. Arrive with clean, makeup-free skin (if applicable): If you’re having laser hair removal on your face, arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin. This ensures that the treatment area is ready for the procedure.

Remember to follow any additional pre-treatment instructions provided by your laser hair removal provider. By properly preparing for your appointment, you can optimize the effectiveness of the treatment and minimize potential complications.

What to do after your laser hair removal treatment (post treatment instructions)?2023-06-28T15:48:00+00:00

After your laser hair removal appointment, it’s important to follow proper post-treatment care to maximize the results and promote healing. Here are some guidelines to follow:

  1. Avoid sun exposure: Protect the treated area from direct sun exposure for at least four weeks following the treatment. Use sunscreen with a high SPF (30 or higher) and cover the treated area with clothing or a hat when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure can increase the risk of complications and affect the final outcome of the treatment.
  2. Avoid heat and hot water: For the first 24-48 hours after treatment, avoid hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, and activities that may cause excessive sweating. Heat can irritate the treated skin and increase the risk of adverse reactions.
  3. Keep the treated area clean: Gently cleanse the treated area with a mild, fragrance-free cleanser. Avoid scrubbing or rubbing the area vigorously, as it can cause irritation. Pat the area dry with a clean, soft towel.
  4. Avoid harsh skincare products: Refrain from using harsh skincare products, exfoliants, or peels on the treated area for at least one week after the laser hair removal session. These products can cause skin irritation and prolong the healing process.
  5. Avoid hair removal methods: Do not pluck, wax, or use depilatory creams on the treated area between sessions. Let the hair naturally shed on its own. Shaving is generally allowed if needed, as it only removes the hair above the skin’s surface.
  6. Apply soothing creams or gels: If recommended by your provider, apply a soothing cream or gel to the treated area to alleviate any discomfort, redness, or swelling. Follow their instructions regarding the specific product to use and how frequently to apply it.
  7. Avoid tight clothing and friction: Opt for loose-fitting clothing to prevent friction and irritation on the treated area. Tight clothing can rub against the skin and cause discomfort.
  8. Be patient and consistent: It’s essential to remember that laser hair removal requires multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. Be patient and follow the recommended treatment schedule provided by your provider. Consistency and adherence to the treatment plan are key to obtaining the desired outcome.

By following these post-treatment guidelines, you can help ensure the best possible outcome from your laser hair removal sessions and promote healthy, smooth skin.

How does laser hair removal work?2023-06-28T15:48:18+00:00

Laser hair removal works by directing a concentrated beam of light into the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light, which converts to heat and destroys the hair follicle, preventing future hair growth. The surrounding skin remains unharmed. A series of sessions are required to target hair follicles in different growth phases for effective and long-lasting hair reduction.
