How to prepare for a laser hair removal treatment session

25th May 2014

It may just be the first time you will be going for a laser hair removal session, if this is the case then, make sure you are fully prepared for your appointment. Below is a short clip, where a skin specialist gives a few useful tips on how you can effectively prepare for your treatment session.

Tip one- make sure you're not on any type of reactive medication before your session

Some medication like accutane and certain types of antibiotics can react badly on our skin. With this in mind, try to avoid any type of medication during your treatment course, if it is likely to have a negative effect on your skin.

Tip two- make sure you avoid any type of hair removal techniques before your treatment session

Up until now, you may have been undergoing hair removal techniques like waxing and shaving. According to the skin specialist in the clip, it is necessary for you to avoid waxing at least 3 weeks before your treatment session, if you want to see the best results from your hair laser removal treatment.

Tip three- keep the treated area/s clean and bacteria-free

It's time we went back to basics, if we haven't done so already. Try to keep the area that is or will be treated as clean and bacteria-free as much as possible. This will reduce chances of your skin producing excess oil, which is one of the main culprits behind bad skin and the formation of pimples, making it harder for that area to be treated on.
