What do I need to do to prepare for my LASER hair removal treatment?
We cannot treat you if you have had heavy sun exposure within two weeks of your laser hair removal treatment and you have had a bad tan.
We can arrange your treatment on the day of your consultation, so shave the night before (ideally 12 hours prior), but do not use wax or depilatory creams for two weeks prior to treatment.
We are unable to treat you if you’ve had the sun-tanning / Vitamin A injections within the last six months.
If you have been bleaching your hair, you will need to allow the normal colour to regrow before proceeding with laser.
Otherwise there is no further preparation required, other than shaving the area the night before and the avoidance of using deodorants and other skin products on the area the day of your treatment.
What can I expect on my first treatment?
Before your first treatment you will need a short 15 minute consultation. This is needed to assess your skin and hair type, assess your suitability for treatment and discuss how to prep your skin for the best possible result.
If you require a treatment on the day of your consultation, this can usually be arranged also.
Do not wax or use depilatory creams beforehand, but you should shave the night before.

Laser hair removal is designed to be a relatively comfortable treatment. After after each treatment the hair becomes lighter or thinner and discomfort subsides. Tip – Treatment is more comfortable if you have effectively shaved before getting laser.
What should I expect post treatment?
During the following weeks, the treated hair will fall out gradually. The timing of your treatments dramatically influences the outcome due to hair growth patterns, thus we suggest you book a course of laser hair removal treatments rather than sporadic appointments.
The treatment area may appear “sunburnt” after treatment, cold compresses will ease discomfort and swelling. Avoid applying makeup to the area in the unlikely event of blistering and stay out of the sun, using a minimum of SPF 30+ sunscreen on the treated area to prevent complications from occurring as your skin will be sensitive to the sun for 48 hours after treatment.
Are there any possible side effects that I need to be aware of?
All of our LASER technicians and doctors are qualified and thoroughly trained in the use of our medical-grade technology. Expected skin responses post-treatment would be pinkness and mild swelling around the hair follicle. Each client’s skin will respond differently. Your doctor will discuss the appropriate aftercare during your consultation. It is extremely important to follow pre- and post-treatment advice stringently.
It is extremely important that clients inform us of any contradictions, medications and deviations to your skin care you have made prior and during your treatment.
