When to Stop Shaving Before Laser Hair Removal?

Post by stella001 on Mon Nov 25, 2013 8:08 am

It is recommended that you shave the day of your treatment. This is because the less hair that is on the surface of the skin, the more energy that can be delievered into the source of the hair - the follicle. Shaving the day of will only increase the efficacy of the laser.

As a patient you can shave anytime throughout your laser hair removal sessions. For best results we highly recommend for you to not wax, tweeze or use any hair removal creams during your laser hair removal sessions. When using any of those laser hair removal techniques it affects your results with the laser and you may not get the desired laser hair removal results you were seeking.  It is recommended to shave the area being treated 24-48 hours before their laser hair removal session.

Shaving the hair a day or two before the treatment is not a good idea, because some of the hair might grow back and be visible on the surface if the skin. To prevent side effects, such as burning we recommend to shave the same day. In addition if there is hair on the surface of the skin that hair takes up some of the energy of the laser and the treatment is not very effective.

It is best to a have cleanly shaved area before treatment. The laser Light will follow down the hair follicle. If you don't shave you could have black dots that need to be exfoliated off. It could be Painful and Irritating. I would recommend shaving before treatments.
