Preparation is key to get best results and ensure your sessions are not disrupted.
While it can be a little tricky to achieve during the summer months, it is a good idea to try and avoid tanning or any sun exposure for a couple of weeks prior and post-treatment. And while being sunburnt should always be avoided, it is definitely not recommended during laser hair removal treatments. Any form of tanning will affect your treatment and results, whether it’s from sun exposure, fake tan moisturisers or sprays. This will increase discomfort felt but also reduce the effectiveness of your treatment, as you will need to be treated at a lower intensity. The best thing to do is to avoid tanning altogether if possible while having laser hair removal treatments.
Also, it’s best not to wax or tweeze for four weeks prior to your treatment. Shaving is ideal.
