On your first consultation visit, we will need all the hair present in order to observe the colour texture and density of your hair in the area of concern. For all treatments, the area must be shaved the night before. Shaving retains the hair follicle but removes the surface hair to allow the laser light to focus its energy on the follicle itself. Avoid UV exposure 7 days prior to treatment. Clients who are sunburned or tanned must wait 2 weeks before being treated to avoid additional skin damage. Avoid sunless tanning products 7 days prior to your treatment. It is recommended that you exfoliate the area to remove any residual colour. If applicable, apply numbing cream 60 minutes prior to your treatment. All products must be completely removed prior to treatment. Clients should come to appointments with clean skin in the area to be treated. All clients who are treating any part of their face or neck will be required to clean their entire face. Avoid chemical peels and other laser procedures in the area to be treated for 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks after your laser treatment. Avoid all alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxyl products (AHA/BHA), hydroquinone, retinals/retinoid, Tazorac and Differing 2 weeks before treatment.
Can I wax, pluck or shave between laser hair removal sessions?
Clients must stop waxing, tweezing and chemical epilation 5 weeks prior to treatment.
