Pre & Post Treatment Care
Limit the sun exposure especially two weeks before your treatment. Getting laser hair removal while your skin is tanned can cause hyper or hypopigmentation (depending on your skin color). Avoid waxing, plucking and tweezing the hair. Waxing, tweezing or plucking while in laser hair removal treatment can make your treatment ineffective. However, you can shave at any time which will preserve the root of the hair. You must shave about 24 hours before your treatment. This will ensure best results and lessen pain involved during the treatment. Following a laser hair removal treatment, the area may feel and look like mild sunburn. Cool compresses are applied immediately after treatment and moisturizing lotions are recommended for 2-3 days post treatment. It is very important that you limit direct and prolonged sun exposure on the treated areas for few days after treatments. Avoid excessive sweating and irritation to the treated areas up to 24 hours after the treatment.
