We can only treat Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV with our laser.
Do I have to take precautions during this process?
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning treatment.
How should I prepare for my laser hair removal appointment?
We prefer that our clients shave the day of their treatment. The less hair on the surface the more effective the laser treatment.
