Laser hair removal is a favorite of folks who prefer a silky-smooth bikini area. Shaving can result in ingrown hairs, bumps and skin damage, while waxing can be extraordinarily painful. Both shaving and waxing are temporary solutions to the persistent problem of down-there hair. For folks interested in a permanent solution, laser hair removal is the safest and easiest way to ensure permanent hair removal.
Preparations for laser hair removal in intimate areas include;
-Shaving all areas to be treated the morning of the appointment.
-Ensuring all areas to be treated are free from lotions, deodorants or other cosmetics. The area should be clean and dry.
-Avoiding waxing or otherwise removing the roots of the hair follicles for a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the laser hair removal appointment.
-Avoiding any type of bleach or hair dye in the specific areas to be treated.
– Advising your technician of any medications (topical or oral) you’re currently taking or have taken in the past 6 months which may increase sensitivity to light. Examples include several antibiotic, antifungal, retinol, or isotretinoin.
