So you’ve taken the leap! Your Bare HR laser hair removal appointment is scheduled and approaching. Congratulations! If you’re anxious about how to prepare, we’ve got you. Today we’ll discuss our most shared tips for pre and post-care so that you experience optimal results from your treatment and smooth, healthy skin that you’ll love!
Pre Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Before your Bare HR laser hair removal appointment, it is important to follow our guidelines to ensure optimal results and safe treatment. As a best practice, we recommend:
-Shave before your appointment
-No tweezing or waxing for 4 weeks ahead of appointment
-No retinoids or chemical exfoliants for 2 weeks ahead of appointment (check your body wash)
-No sun tanning or spray tanning for 2 weeks ahead of appointment
Post Laser Hair Removal Treatment
-Limit sun exposure, no tanning for 2 weeks
-Avoid harsh physical and chemical exfoliants
-Keep skin hydrated
-Use SPF diligently
It’s also important to know that we cannot treat tattooed areas so please keep that in mind when choosing your desired treatment areas.
While your provider will give you more specific information for you and the needs of your skin at your appointment, these general guidelines are a great place to start in protecting your skin and ensuring you get the most out of your laser hair removal treatment with us here at Coco Med Spa in St. Pete.
We look forward to seeing you!
