How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

All Laser Hair Removal treatments at Vita Cosmetic & Laser Clinic are overseen by a medical doctor. Dr. Diego Delgado is a Professor of Medicine at the Department of Medicine of the University of Toronto and is certified by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. We guarantee that your experience at the clinic will be as positive and rewarding as possible with our personalized, patient-focused care. Let's discuss how to prepare for laser hair removal treatment.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a permanent hair removal method that addresses the root of the issue. The procedure destroys hair follicles with focused lasers without causing skin damage.

The melanin or pigment in the hair absorbs a focused laser beam of light. The hair follicle is then killed by the light, stopping further hair development.

Laser hair removal must be carried out in places with dark hair since melanin absorbs the laser in the hair. Laser hair removal is not effective on red, blonde, or white hairs. Although there are products for at-home laser hair removal, they are often less successful than medical care. Some people might also be at risk from them.

Keep Away from the Sun

Take at least two weeks off from tanning or getting sunburned before your laser appointment, as these conditions will prevent you from receiving laser therapy. After treatments, your skin will be especially sensitive, so apply SPF between appointments and stay out of the sun.

Use Skin Care Products with Care

The skin’s photosensitivity is heightened by some common skin care products. Increased photosensitivity can raise the danger of the laser hair removal treatment hurting your skin because the procedure employs light to target the hair follicles.

Salicylic acid, retinol, and benzoyl peroxide are substances to stay away from. Three to four days before treatment, stop using items containing these substances, and three to four days after treatment, before using them once more.

Razor the Area

The area must be shaved within twenty-four hours of laser treatment. You must come without leaving any hair behind.

Don’t put off shaving your bikini area until the last minute. Because the skin in this area is so delicate, you might want to give any irritation from shaving some time to go away.

Avoid Tweezing and Waxing

This rule is especially crucial to follow in the interim between appointments. If you’ve damaged the hair follicle by waxing or plucking, laser therapy won’t be effective because it targets the pigment in the hair.

The hair you pluck with tweezers or remove with a wave motion will instead regrow. Prior to starting a laser hair removal treatment, wait at least four weeks after your last waxing appointment.

Select Fitting Clothing

When your laser hair removal appointment is scheduled, you should give your wardrobe some extra thought. Following your laser hair removal procedure, the area may become irritated.

Pick breathable, loose clothing to reduce irritation from your outfit. Pick cotton underwear and loose-fitting pants if you are treating the area around your bikini line.

Prepare Your Skin

Keep your skin clean before your appointment. Use no lotion, oil, sunscreen, deodorant, or cosmetics. Ask for a wipe before you come to clean your skin before treatment if you can’t truly avoid using these products.

Additionally, you must abstain from self-tanning products for two weeks prior to your visit. To get rid of any self-tanner residue, make sure you fully exfoliate before your treatment.

And there you have it!

Before your appointment, your laser technician will give you instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best results.

By taking the time to prepare properly for your laser hair removal appointment, you can ensure that you get the best results possible. With the right preparation, you can enjoy the benefits of permanent hair removal with minimal risks.
