What to Do Before Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is fast making the tedious rituals of shaving, tweezing, and waxing a thing of the past. But there are certain do’s and don’ts that have to be followed before undergoing the procedure.

Choose the right place.

Choosing a trusted facility is an essential first step in your journey to flawless, hairless skin. During your initial consultation with a qualified doctor, you’ll discuss your medical history, goals, and expectations from the procedure. Photos may be taken of the areas to be treated as these images can be used for comparison and long-term reviews.

Follow instructions for better results.

Dr. Sobel will provide you with certain instructions on what to do before your laser hair removal procedure. You’ll need to avoid waxing, plucking, or electrolysis for at least six weeks before your treatment because these treatments pull hair out of the follicles. Since laser removal targets the hair follicles (killing them so they don’t regrow hair), the purpose of the treatment would be defeated if hair is removed beforehand.

It is also important to avoid sun exposure six weeks before and six weeks after treatment. Frequent exposure to the sun can reduce the effectiveness of the treatment and increase the patient’s risks of developing complications after treatment.
