How to Prepare Before and After Laser Hair Removal Treatment

So, today I am going to go through easy steps to prepare before and after laser hair removal. Before we proceed, below is a live demonstration video of what goes on during the actual treatment as well as what to expect during the treatment. After the treatment is finished they make sure to apply sunscreen on every client to ensure that the skin will not be harmed when UVA and UVB rays hit the surface of your skin. And that is what to expect during a laser hair removal treatment.

Before Treatment

Stop all waxing, tweezing, plucking or bleaching

It’s recommended that at least four weeks before treatment because laser technology targets the hair roots, which are temporarily removed if you wax or pluck them before treatment, thereby rendering the procedure ineffective.

Stop Tanning for Two Weeks

Do not tan for two weeks before a laser hair removal that means no sun tanning, no tanning beds, spray tan or self-tanning creams at all. Just your natural skin to get the best results.

Shave Before Treatment.

Shave the areas you want to be treated at least 24 hours before your laser hair removal treatment

Remove Any Makeup

Remove any makeup, lotion, deodorant or ointments with soap and water before treatment.

After The Treatment

Avoid all sun exposure.

That means no sun tanning, tanning beds or tanning creams and also make sure to wear SPF 30 or greater sun block to increase the effectiveness and immediate results of your procedure.

Do not Wax, Bleach or Pluck

Do not wax, bleach or pluck any hairs in the treated areas. You may shave as often as you like to maintain hair in-between your laser hair removal sessions.


Your hair will shed out approximately 2-4 weeks after your laser hair removal treatment. You may assist the shedding process by using a gentle exfoliator or loofah

You May Use An Ice Pack

Some people may experience normal redness or swelling after a laser hair removal treatment If this happens, you may use a cool compress or ice pack periodically in 20-minute intervals.

Avoid Exercise

Avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours after your treatment.
