Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair on the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, bikini line, or any other area (except the eyelid). If you aspire to have super smooth skin and want to worry less about shaving, you may consider laser hair removal. Before your appointment, you will want to follow these guidelines:
Stay out of the sun for at least two weeks prior to your appointment. This includes any other tanning methods such as tanning beds and self-tanners. It can lead to discoloration after your laser treatment and, even worse, sunburn can cause extreme pain and blistering. If you must be out in the sun, be sure to use plenty of sunscreen.
These methods can disturb the hair follicle and interfere with your laser hair removal process. Shaving, however, preserves the hair shaft and follicles. It is recommended to shave with a clean, new razor prior to your appointment.
The skin at the treatment site should be clean of deodorant, cosmetics, lotions, and creams. Simply use soap and water to clean the area.
The treated area should either be exposed or covered by loose clothing. If your skin is sensitive after treatment, it may become irritated from tight clothing.
Lasers are designed to target the dark pigment of each hair follicle; they are not effective on blonde, gray, or red hair. If you bleach your hairs regularly, it is recommended to stop at least one month before your appointment.
