How to Prepare for Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

How to Prepare for Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Tweezing, shaving, and waxing can be painful and tiresome, sometimes leaving behind unsightly red marks or stray hairs. Laser hair removal is a virtually painless and effective alternative to get rid of unwanted body hair in both small and large areas. Another bonus? Laser hair removal is permanent. It works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying the hair with highly concentrated light.

The laser hair removal specialists at Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery are highly trained in laser hair removal techniques, and are prepared to work with you to get the outcome you’ve been looking for. To schedule an initial consultation, please call our offices in Des Moines at (515) 222-1111.

Preparing for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment

In order to get the most out of your laser hair removal treatment, there are several steps you should take in the days and weeks before your appointment.

  • Do not tweeze or wax at least 6 weeks prior to your appointment.
  • Stay out of the sun. Tanning can make your skin more sensitive to the laser, and might result in permanent discoloration of the skin.
  • 1-2 days before your treatment, shave with a clean, new razor.

In addition, you should also avoid shaving for at least a week following your appointment. If you have further questions about laser hair removal treatments or would like to learn more about the services we offer to Des Moines residents, contact one of our professionals today.
