Our laser hair removal procedures permanently remove unwanted hair from your body. Our lasers can remove hair from any area of your body. Laser hair removal works by targeting pigment within the root of the hair, generating heat the removes that hair from your body and prevents it from regrowing. Because our laser technology targets pigment, laser hair removal is most effective when there is greater contrast between the hair and the skin.
Before receiving laser hair removal treatment, we recommend that you:
- Shave the day before your session
- Avoid being in the sun for two weeks before your treatment
- Do not wax or pluck for two weeks prior to treatment
- Do not use any products that may increase your skin sensitivity for one week prior to treatment
- Do not use self-tanning lotion
After your session, a pink or reddish color may linger for a day or so. This will fade, and your skin should regain its natural color shortly following your hair removal session. You will likely require several sessions with our hair removal experts to complete your treatment.
Following a laser hair removal treatment, you should:
- Avoid sun exposure for two weeks
- The day of your treatment, do not exercise
- The day of your treatment, do not take a hot shower or bath
- Do not exfoliate your skin or use products that may cause irritation for several days
