If you are considering laser hair reduction, there are a few things you need to know….
How should I prepare for a laser hair reduction procedure?
For best results and to avoid unwanted side effects, you may need to take a few preparatory steps before undergoing laser hair removal treatment. In particular, it’s important to avoid tanning before having this treatment. Patients using tanning creams should stop several weeks before the treatment in order to avoid any interference. Also, you should avoid waxing, plucking or using electrolysis to remove the hair before the laser procedure. Shaving, on the other hand, is allowed and we prefer you do so the day before your treatment. By not shaving/preparing the treatment area prior to your laser hair reduction treatment an additional fee for your practitioner to do this will apply.
What do I do after a laser hair reduction procedure?
We recommend you keep the treated area hydrated. Your skin will thank you for using a recommended/approved after care cream. This will help heal the treated area very quickly and help prevent ingrown hairs, should you suffer these. We also recommend avoiding direct sunlight and to use a good broad spectrum SPF sunscreen, ideally 50+, daily. If you are heading out, in conjunction with the right sun protection attire, reapply your SPF sunscreen every 2 hours for maximum sun protection.
How many procedures will I need?
Everyone is very unique. Health considerations, genetics and other influencing factors like stress levels will influence how many procedures you may need. We recommend making an appointment to speak to one of our skin practitioners. This one-on-one assessment will help us determine the best course of hair reduction process for you.
