You can set yourself free from the worry of unwanted hair and wear your favorite skirt or sleeveless top whenever you want!

Irrespective of the reason, hair removal is the perfect choice for women. However, if it is your first time with laser hair removal treatment, it is obvious to have few queries or confusion. How to get ready for laser treatment, and what happens during the session, what aftercare needs to be followed post surgery, are some common queries. They can be answered by an experienced doctor during the initial consultation session. The cosmetic surgeon will also guide you on how to prepare for the laser hair removal procedure.

Here’s a look at some tips on how to prepare for a laser hair removal procedure:

Stop waxing and plucking

Laser hair removal targets the roots of the hair so one must avoid plucking or waxing the area to be treated for at least three to four weeks before the first appointment. In fact, we never ask to shave the area before the appointment. The laser sessions are scheduled eight to ten weeks apart.

Shave the area

The area is shaved in the clinic. As the main reason is that the area needs to be freshly shaved. And the candidate can avoid shaving the area. Furthermore, this helps the cosmetic surgeon know about the growth density of the area and they can adjust the laser energy accordingly. Dr. Kedarnath Pandya has the best expertise in the field of cosmetic surgery. You can rest assured for a safe and amazing treatment.

Avoid sun exposure

A few weeks before the laser hair removal, the area that needs to be treated should be kept away from the sun. Tanning beds and self-tanners are a big No. Getting tanned can lead to discoloration after the laser surgery along with causing excessive pain or even blisters. Most laser professionals refuse to treat a client with even minor sunburns and ask to reschedule the appointment. Use sunscreen daily and cover the area with a scarf before stepping out.

Avoid bleaching

As mentioned above, hair removal treatment works by targeting the roots. Hair pigment and color can be found in the root which absorbs the light produced by the laser. This leads to the permanent destruction of hair. Bleaching the hair alters the pigment and it becomes tough to target the hair. Stop bleaching six weeks before the session. It gives enough time for the hair roots to grow back.

Check the medications

While speaking to the doctor, inform them about the medications you take, both topical and oral. It is important as some medications might intervene with the laser treatment and make them less effective. Other medications might make the skin sensitive and likely cause a blister or burn. Inform the laser doctor/ technician about any antibiotics, birth control, or acne medications. The treatment must be adjusted accordingly for practicing precaution.

No makeup and lotions

The last precaution to follow is going for the laser hair removal session without applying any makeup or creams. Furthermore, avoid creams, lotions, deodorants, makeup, ointments, etc applied topically on the area to be treated. Then, use water and soap for cleansing the skin. As we all know that laser hair removal has emerged as a common treatment for getting rid of unwanted hair. Because, it’s safe, effective, and offers long-term results. Make sure you choose a reputed cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Kedarnath Pandya for laser hair removal in Ahmedabad.
