As with any medical treatment, preparation is very important. Once you have decided on laser hair removal, you will meet with a healthcare specialist to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs. They will review your personal history and medical history to help ensure that there are no issues in moving forward with the treatment. It is especially important to disclose any skin disorders that could affect the outcome of the process or any prior hair removal treatments.
It is also important to let the practitioner know if you take any blood-thinning medications, like aspirin or acetaminophen.
During the preparation phase, you will also discuss the areas in which you would like hair removed, the amount of time it will take, and the number of sessions needed for complete hair removal. It’s also advised to take before and after photos to monitor the progress.
Our laser hair removal platform requires some hair growth, so we ask that you do not shave for several days before. Lastly, you will be asked to avoid other forms of hair removal, such as waxing, plucking, electrolysis, and nipping, for roughly four weeks before treatment.
