Laser Hair Removal

 Pre Treatment:

  • Avoid tanning beds for self tanners for 10 days prior to treatment.

  • You must shave or closely clip the hair of the body part to be treated.

  • No waxing, tweezing, electrolysis in the treatment area. Once the hair has been taken out, there will be no follicle for us to get heat to.

  • Avoid sun exposure for 1 to 2 weeks prior to treatment and use SPF 30 daily to ensure coverage against UVB and UVA rays.

  • Do not use self-tanning products for 1 to 2 weeks prior to and/or post treatment.

  • Discontinue use of Tretinoin type products (Renova, Tretinoin, Retin A, Retin A Micro, Tri-Luma, Solage, etc.) or Hydroquinone at least 2 or 3 days prior to treatment.

  • Many medications that are sun sensitive will also make your more sensitive to the laser. Please disclose any medications that you may be taking such as: Accutane, Antibiotics, Iron Supplements, and etc.

  • Notify the center if you develop a cold sore, acne, open lesions in the area being treated, or experience any type of illness prior to your treatment.

  • REMEMBER - Laser hair reduction is never 100%. Industry standard is 75 to 90% reduction in the hairs. Not all hairs will be destroyed. Hormones can cause hair to grow back.
