When you first come in to schedule your laser hair removal treatment, your practitioner will give you brochures with preparation guidelines. She will answer any questions at this time, and help you understand the best way to prepare for the procedure. We’ve included a few of these guidelines to give you some idea of what you should expect.
It’s first important to understand that laser hair removal is an actual medical procedure, requiring extensive training on the part of your practitioner. For this reason, you should fully consider all guidelines set forth before your procedure.
For six weeks prior to your laser hair removal, it is important to avoid tweezing, waxing and any other procedure that affects the root of your hair. The roots need to be present in order for laser hair removal to take effect.
It is also important to avoid sun exposure for six weeks both before and after your treatment. The sun’s rays can negatively affect your treatment.

Laser hair removal is noninvasive, and most patients require no anesthetic. However, we do offer numbing topical cream for your total comfort. This aspect will be discussed prior to the procedure.
As the first step, your practitioner will trim the target area so the hair is only a few millimeters in length. This allows the laser to be placed directly over the follicles, which is necessary for effective treatment.
The laser is then adjusted to the correct setting for your hair’s color, thickness and location, as well as your skin color. Your practitioner will also give you eye protection, as the laser produces a very bright light with each pulse. As a final preparatory measure, your skin will be covered in a cooling gel to give you total comfort during the procedure.
After delivering an initial pulse of light on the treatment area, your practitioner will wait a moment and watch the area. She is looking to make sure the settings on the laser were correct so that the rest of the treatment is as effective as possible.
After your first appointment, you will be scheduled for a follow-up treatment. Laser hair removal is typically done over 3-5 appointments until the hair stops growing. In most cases, laser hair removal is completely permanent.
When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort. You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You'll receive treatments until hair stops growing.
