Pre-Operative Instructions for Laser Hair Removal
Notify your practitioner if you have any hormonal conditions, including but not limited to PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), as these conditions tend to cause aggressive hair regrowth after laser treatment.
Notify your practitioner of any medications you have used within the last 6 months.
Notify your practitioner if you have a history of perioral herpes (you will need to take an oral antiviral 2 days before and 2 days after the procedure)
Discontinue waxing, tweezing or plucking 3 weeks prior to treatment. Shaving is required 2 days before treatment, as small 2-3 mm stubble of hair MUST be present for the treatment to be effective
Avoid extended sun exposure or tanning for at least 2-weeks pre and post-treatment.
Immediately Before Treatment
Remove any make-up and/or lotions and make sure that the skin is dry in the area to be treated.
