You’ll never need to worry about unwanted facial hair on sensitive areas again after having treatments with our gentle, modern laser machine.
Prepare Yourself For Your Laser Treatment
1. Stop tanning at least one month before treatment.
Avoid tanning for at least four to six weeks before your laser treatment. Always wear sunscreen during this period. It is important to avoid the sun is because the sun helps your skin produce melanin. Melanin is what makes your skin change color; it also happens to be what the laser is targeting your unwanted hair. Why? Melanin absorbs the laser energy and converts it into heat. If enough heat is produced, the hair follicle is destroyed. If there is too much melanin in your skin, most of the laser energy will instead be absorbed by it. This means that only the excess heat will be absorbed by your hair, and not enough heat will be produced in the hair follicle to destroy it.
2. Have the treated area of your skin free of cosmetics, creams or lotions.
Please do not wear any moisturizing creams, lotions or cosmetics for your treatment. You should also clean the body part to be treated. If you have used any antiperspirant, please remove it before the treatment.
3. Avoid supplements, and discuss this with your cosmetic specialist before your treatment.
It is important to avoid taking vitamin A supplements, as well as ingesting Beta Carotene. Beta Carotene is usually found in vegetables, such as carrots and squash. The reason why you should avoid Beta Carotene is that it changes your skin color to a subtle orange or yellow, which means that more melanin is produced in the skin. Melanin dilutes the power of the laser energy heating the hair follicle and makes the treatment less effective.
4. Shave the body part you are treating 24 hours before your appointment.
Shave the body part you intend to treat 24 to 48 hours before the going for the treatment, or as directed by your specialist during the pre-procedure discussion or consultation. Remember that laser treatments are more effective on the smooth skin; unlike waxing, longer hair does not improve the treatment results.
5. Wear loose-fitting clothing
On the day of laser hair removal, wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that can conveniently expose the treatment area or can be quickly removed to reveal the part of treatment.
