Prior to arriving for treatment you should shave the treatment area. Do not wax, tweeze or pluck hair in the area being treated for 3 weeks before beginning treatment or throughout the continuation of treatments as the laser is attracted to the follicle. You can maintain hair growth between session by shaving or trimming. Avoid direct sun exposure directly before and after treatment. If area appears slightly red or bumpy post treatment, you can use Aloe. We recommend always using SPF throughout your treatments as well.
