Laser Hair Removal
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.
