Preparing for Your Hair Removal Treatment


Is this your first laser hair removal treatment? We share your excitement in finally having the opportunity to get the results you want for yourself. You deserve this. At the same time, we are here to help you prepare as much as possible.

Aside from a medical consultation that lays down your situation and preferences, we begin the process by helping you understand the effectiveness and safety of the procedure. As we get closer to your schedule, there are some guidelines to consider.
Two weeks before the treatment, avoid using UV tanning beds or sun exposure, especially in the areas you want to be treated. Use recommended sunblock with at least SPF 30 to protect yourself daily.

Three days before your appointment in a medical clinic in New York, New York, avoid topical products that cause photosensitivity, such as retinol or salicylic acid, in the treatment areas you desire. You can use a gentle cleanser on the target areas instead.

You may shave the target areas around 24 hours from your schedule. Only do shave since the hair root needs to be present for the laser. For a comfortable experience, come in freshly showered or bathed. You do not need to use lotions, oils, or fragrances.
