Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Information is key when getting ready for laser hair removal. Ask plenty of questions during the consultation so you’ll know what to expect, and be sure to disclose any medical issues you may have.

Take Pictures

A single picture is worth 1,000 words, and you’ll want to be able to track your progress. Take a few photographs of the area that’s going to be treated with laser hair removal. You’ll want to check the results.

Leading Up to the Laser Hair Removal Appointment

Your technician will have many warnings and reminders to give you at your consultation. The more closely you follow these instructions, the better the results of your laser hair removal are likely to be.

One of the most important warnings relates to staying out of the sun. Tanned skin is much more at risk for side effects during a laser hair removal treatment. For instance, skin lightening has occasionally occurred when someone has gone tanning before their treatment. It’s often recommended to stay out of the sun for about a month and a half before having the procedure performed.

Another vital word of advice relates to hair removal. While plucking and waxing may be a way of life now, they should be avoided in the weeks leading up to the appointment. Because these hair removal methods involve pulling hair out by the root, they can interfere with the laser removal process. Your technician will probably give the go ahead for shaving since this does not affect the hair follicle.

Laser hair removal is safe and effective. Follow these tips to prepare for a successful hair removal procedure, and stay tuned for tips on what you should do after laser hair removal.

  1. Taking pictures will unsure you about the progress that you have gone through. After all laser hair removal is not a cheap process and if you have paid the amount you will want to see the results.

  2. I like the idea of doing a before and after pictures. Sometimes it’s hard to tell with a point of reference. When you can see where you came from, then you’ll better understand what you end result goal is. Thanks for posting this great info!

  3. Are there any major consequences that happen when you don’t follow the instruction after receiving laser hair removal? I’ve heard people say that it’s actually safer depending on your skin type. Is that true?
