It is very important that you avoid UV exposure and tanning 2 weeks before laser hair removal treatment. This includes the use of any fake tanning solutions and solariums. You must notify your clinician if you have had any exposure to avoid risks of complications.
Do not wax, tweeze, use hair removal devices, or bleach 4 weeks prior to a laser hair removal treatment.
The area to be treated must also be clean. No makeup should be applied and the application of lotions, creams, or serums should be avoided. We understand that there may be times that this is unavoidable so please let your clinician know and they may remove the product for you.
If you have started taking any new medication or have changed medications you must advise the clinic to avoid any complications.
The use of any exfoliating products must be discontinued 1 week prior to treatment. This includes products with ingredients such as vitamin A, lactic acid, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid.
The hair in the area to be treated must be no more than 1-2mm long. We recommend shaving or trimming the hair prior to treatment. If you require your clinician to shave or trim the area down for you, you must let the receptionist know at the time of booking and a shaving fee of $20 will apply.
