Laser hair removal is a short procedure that takes no longer than twenty minutes and may take even less time, depending on where you want the hair removed. You should expect to feel a mild sting that is similar to being struck with a rubber band, followed by a cooling sensation to increase comfort.
You’ll want to prepare for your laser hair removal procedure in advance. The best time to start is going to be five weeks before your scheduled appointment. Keep in mind, however, that you’ll need:
Shave the treatment area: If you don’t feel comfortable shaving the treatment area, we can do this for you on the day of the appointment.
Avoid tanning: This includes tanning beds and sunless tanners
Avoid waxing, tweezing, plucking and electrolysis
On the day of your laser hair removal procedure do not use lotions, makeup, perfumes, deodorant, and creams on or around the treatment area.
The treatment area may be slightly red and swollen after treatment, which is normal and will subside with time. It is important that you avoid touching the area to prevent further irritation.
The day of the treatment you’ll want to take things easy and avoid exercise, heat, chlorine, and makeup. You also avoid any sort of beauty and skincare products for 24 hours after your treatment. Within 1-3 weeks of treatment, you should experience shedding of hair in the treated areas. During this time, it’s a good idea to exfoliate with a loofa or gentle scrub.
