So, you’ve decided to proceed with laser hair removal for your troublesome, unwanted body hair. Good for you! Your decision is a smart one; practical and economical. Before your first session, there are some things you will want to do in preparation. It’s common for your laser technician to review these things with you, but this can serve as a little reminder.
Shave a couple of days before your treatment. Shaving your unwanted hair and letting it grow in for just a couple of days gives the laser an active follicle to focus on, rather than freshly shaved skin which does not present an active follicle or something for the laser to “grab.”
Keep your skin moisturized and nourished pre-treatment. Post-treatment you may experience redness and minimum discomfort, but those symptoms are quickly resolved on their own, more so if your skin is buoyant and well cared for pre-treatment.
Consider popping an ibuprofen or acetaminophen prior to your treatment. Laser hair removal is typically very tolerable. The pain is less invasive than a tattoo and is described more like a faint scratching. However, if you are particularly averse to pain, a simple OTC pain reliever can go a long way to ensuring your comfort.
