Steps to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved treatment that permanently removes the hair from the body by use of laser energy. Your qualified technician will determine which methods to use on you depending on your skin pigmentation and hair color and density. At Rao Dermatology, we offer the best possible treatment by some of the most highly-skilled technicians.

Laser hair removal targets and disables hair follicles, making them far less likely to produce hair. If hair does grow back, it is typically lighter and thinner than before. After the appropriate number of treatments for your hair type are complete, you should experience very little to absolutely no hair growth.

Being hair-free makes your skin appear smoother and silkier, producing a far more radiant complexion and promoting self-confidence. It is important to choose an experienced, trusted skincare professional.

Three Weeks Prior to Your Appointment

Three weeks prior to your treatment session, you should cease all waxing and plucking completely. The hair needs to be viable in order for the laser to make contact. Keeping an open line of communication with our technician is vital to receiving the best possible care.

The Day of Your Treatment

On the day of your appointment, you will want to make sure your skin is completely clean and free of all perfumes, deodorants, makeup, lotions, powders, or any other cosmetic that may interfere with laser hair removal treatment. Having something foreign on the skin can dissipate the heat that is generated by the laser and cause your treatment to be less successful.

A cooling gel is applied to the skin before treatment begins. This not only makes the treatment comfortable but also helps disperse the heat. The exact number of treatment sessions you will need will depend on factors such as your hair type and the size of the area to be treated.
