What Should I Do Before My Laser Hair Removal Procedure?
We’ll invite you in for an in-person consultation with one of our medical estheticians, and walk you through every step of the process so you can be sure laser hair removal is the perfect solution for you. You will need to stop the use of retinols, vitamin C, any exfoliating scrubs or glycolic acids in the areas that will be treated. Avoid tweezing or waxing for six weeks prior to your first treatment, and do not tweeze or wax once treatment has begun. Shave the area 24 to 48 hours prior to your appointment. Hair growth that has just broken the surface is perfect for treatment. You will also need to avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior to a treatment.
