3 Things to Avoid When Doing Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Posted on June 30, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Laser Hair Removal technology works by destroying the hair follicle through controlled bursts of high intensity light. You will need several treatments to reduce your unwanted body hair, but each session is relatively quick and we offer treatment packages to make the process more affordable. Our laser technician will work with you to make each treatment session as comfortable and effective as possible, but there are few things you can also do yourself to ensure optimal results.

1. Avoid sunbathing
Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to your treatment. Sunbathing makes your body more sensitive to heat, which in turn increases the possibility of burns and hyperpigmentation.

2. Avoid waxing and plucking
Do not wax or pluck your hair during the two weeks leading up to your treatment. Waxing and plucking interferes with the hair follicle’s growth cycle and may extend the number of sessions you need to achieve good results. We recommend that you shave the unwanted hair the day before your appointment to maximize the results of your treatment.

3. Avoid perfumes, deodorant, and lotions
Do not apply any moisturizing agents to the treated areas the day of your treatment as this can interfere with the laser’s ability to destroy hair follicles. The skin should also be cleaned thoroughly prior to your appointment.
