Laser Hair Removal Pre-TREATMENT
Post- Treatment

Pre-treatment Instructions:

  • Avoid deep tanning (tanning bed, tanning creams) 2 weeks before and after 
    the treatment. If you must go in the sun use a sunscreen SPF 25 or higher.

  • If you are tan or have a darker skin type, a bleaching regimen may be started 4-6
    weeks before treatment.

  • It is not necessary to shave prior to coming in for a treatment, except for men 
    with thick beards, in most cases we will trim the hairs before the treatment.

  • It is recommended that you stop bleaching 2-3 days before your procedure.

  • It is best that you refrain from tweezing or waxing immediately, shaving or trimming 
    is better.

Post-treatment Instructions:

  • Immediately after treatment, there should be redness and bumps at the treatment site, 
    which may last up to 2 hours or longer. It is normal for the treated area to feel like 
    sunburn for a few hours. You may use a cold compress if needed.

  • Makeup may be used after the treatment, just make sure that you have moisturizer on 
    under your makeup. In fact, moisturizer will help the dead hair exfoliate from the follicle 
    so use moisturizer frequently and freely on the treated area. 
    Any moisturizer without alpha-hydroxy acids will work.

  • Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots. Use sunscreen SPF 30 
    or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment.

  • Do not use any other hair removal methods or products on the treated area during the 
    course of your laser treatments (tweezing, waxing and depilatories), as it will prevent 
    you from achieving your best results.

  • Anywhere from 5-30 days after the treatment, shedding of the hair may occur and this 
    may appear as new hair growth. This is not new hair growth, but dead hair pushing it's 
    way out of the follicle.
    You can help the hairs exfoliate by taking a hot shower and 
    rubbing with a washcloth or loofa sponge.

  • It is very important to follow the appointment schedule established by you laser 
    practitioner for the optimum results for your procedure.
