What are the best ways that you can most effectively prepare for your laser hair removal treatment? First things first, you certainly need to visit us for a consultation prior to your first visit. With locations across the western states such as Colorado, laser hair removal is more convenient than ever! In fact, our Denver laser hair removal facility allows customers to better understand laser hair removal treatment, while allowing our expert staff to ask the questions that make laser hair removal sessions as effective as possible. The following are some ways that you can become ready. First, ensure that you don’t wax, pluck, or utilize depilatory creams at least 2 weeks before your first session.
Doing so, may prevent the laser from finding the follicle therefore making your treatment less effective. Next, the darker and more thick the hair, the better. If your hair is silver or white in color, this can add difficulty to the procedure since laser light focuses on color. Our Colorado laser hair removal staff will consult with you to determine the efficacy of your upcoming treatment, as we do have specialized lasers that may be relevant to your personal hair color. Next, please avoid the sun before your visit as much as feasible. Skin that is sunburned cannot be treated.
Although summer weather has arrived in Denver, laser hair removal treatment should be preceded by the avoidance of significant sun exposure for two weeks or more before your session. The application of sunscreen during the time leading up to your visit can help you minimize sun exposure. This applies to artificial tanning as well. In fact, if your skin has an artificial tanning product, while rare, blistering is possible. Additionally, before treatment we do recommend shaving major treatment areas (such as your underarms, and bikini-line area) 24 hours before of your session if possible. This can help sensitive skin from possible irritation during treatment. Finally, realize that if you have any questions about laser hair removal treatment, we encourage you to call our Customer Care Department, or open our chat feature if you would like to ask us questions online. You’ll be glad you did!
