How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat safely and effectively damages the hair follicles by destroying its blood supply. The surrounding skin remains unaffected

How to Prepare for Treatment

For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing in the treatment area. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment. Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light for 7-14 days prior to or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.

Post-Treament Care

After your laser treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days.
