Preparation for Hair Removal

Two Weeks Before Hair Removal

  • Do not wax, bleach, use depilatory creams, tweeze or have electrolysis for 2 weeks prior to laser hair removal.
  • Avoid Chemical Peels, Photofacials, IPL and Microdermabrasion for 2 weeks prior to treatment of the area.
  • For best results, avoid tanning the area to be treated for 2 weeks. In the summer, a broad spectrum sunscreen (UVA and UVB) with an SPF of 30 or more is recommended.

Day Before Laser Hair Removal Session

  • You need to shave the area the night before the surgery. You may leave a small unshaved area for us to view.
  • Patients who arrive unshaved, will be charged a shaving fee.
