How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Are you sick of razor bumps and cuts? We are, too. Laser hair removal is a great alternative to shaving, and is the only way to permanently eliminate or reduce hair growth in all parts of your body. Kucumber Skin Lounge offers professional laser hair removal services so you can get glowing skin and remove unwanted hair in a more efficient way than using a razor. We offer a variety of permanent hair reduction treatments that are catered to individual skin type and hair texture. Before treatment, take these steps to ensure a smooth and successful laser treatment.

  • Doctor consultation: For all laser services, you’ll need to meet with our doctor to be cleared for treatments. While laser treatments are very safe, this assessment will evaluate individual health to ensure patient safety and a successful outcome. In this consolation you can expect to review your medical history, medication use, and discuss the benefits and risks.
  • Avoid sunlight: You should avoid sun exposure as much as possible in the two weeks before and after laser treatment. A tan or sunburn increases the risks of side effects such as skin lightening.  This includes self-tanning products—wait until your tan fades to undergo laser hair removal so that your skin is in its most natural state.
  • Don’t pluck or wax: Harsh hair removal methods such as plucking, waxing and electrolysis can disturb individual hair follicles and therefore interfere with laser removal.
  • Shave: Please shave the area prior to your appointment. The day before is recommended to minimize irritation to the skin before undergoing a laser treatment. This will allow the laser to reach the hair follicles without excess hair in the way, improving results.
