Laser Hair Reduction 

Before Your Laser Hair Reduction Treatment:

  • Please shave the entire area you desire treated the day before your planned treatment.

  • Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 (or greater) sunscreen before AND after your treatments. 

  • No natural or artificial tanning (which includes tanning beds and spray tans) anytime within 2-3 weeks prior to your session.

  • Avoid cell turnover/exfoliating products like Retin-A, alpha or beta hydroxy acids, toners or any irritating products for one week prior.

  • Do not apply any perfumes, deodorant or make-up to the treatment area the day of your appointment


After Your Laser Hair Reduction Treatment:.

  • Immediately after treatment, you could experience slight redness, swelling around the hair follicles and mild discomfort similar to a sunburn. Cool packs may be applied.

  • You may also notice during and immediately after your session the smell of burnt hair. This is normal.

  • Do not rub or pick the treated area. Do not use any loofahs or abrasive scrubs for at least 5 days.

  • Avoid strenuous sports activities or hot water/ saunas/ jacuzzis for 2 days.

  • Contact our office if the area shows signs of infection or blistering.

  • Continue to use sunscreen for the duration of your treatments.


Scheduling Your Next Treatment:

  • After your treatment, the hair may appear to grow for up to two weeks. This is simply the treated hair being shed from the follicle, and is not necessarily new growth.

  • Shaving is recommended between sessions and is recommended the day prior to your next appointment.

  • Electrolysis, waxing, threading, tweezing or plucking is to be avoided between sessions, however shaving is encouraged.


Maintenance Treatments:

Although 5 treatments is the standard amount of treatments for most people to see optimal results, a sixth or even seventh treatment may be required depending on how thick and coarse the hair is at the start of the treatment package.


Maintenance treatments will be necessary after completing the initial package of 5 treatments. The frequency depends on the individual and could range between 1 and 3, or maybe even more treatments per year depending on location and hair density at the start of treatments. Hormone fluctuations and underlying hormonal medical conditions (known or unknown) can affect hair regrowth, as well.
