How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal treatment Laser hair removal is a great way to achieve permanent smooth and hairless skin. Not only is it a popular alternative to shaving, waxing, plucking, and threading but it’s also less expensive as you don’t have to spend money every week for a waxing session. If you’re considering laser hair removal at Silk Medical Spa, there are a few ways you should prepare for your treatment session.


Shave Targeted Area

To receive the best laser hair removal results; you should shave the area where you want hair removed before getting treatment. This is important because shaving allows just enough stubble for the laser to target. If you don’t shave beforehand, the treatment could cause discomfort.

Avoid Waxing and Plucking

It’s important you don’t wax or pluck three weeks before your laser hair removal treatment at Silk Medical Spa. Laser hair removal is used to eliminate any hairs and their roots below the skin’s surface. If you plucked or waxed away your hair’s root, the laser won’t be able to get rid of that hair follicle because it doesn’t exist, and then your laser hair removal won’t be as effective.

Stay Away From Cosmetic Products

It’s also important to avoid wearing any cosmetic products, such as makeup and deodorant, as one of our experienced team members will likely need to apply a cream to your skin beforehand. Any cosmetic products could get in the way of the cream.

Avoid Tanning 

Not only can tanning be dangerous for your skin and health as it could cause skin cancer and early signs of aging but it can also affect your laser hair removal treatment . Tanning before your treatment could cause extra pigment in your skin, causing the laser to not be able to target your hair follicles as well. At Silk Medical Spa, we ask that you avoid any type of tanning four weeks before your scheduled treatment.
