Smooth legs from laser hair removal treatment Are you tired of shaving, waxing, or dealing with ingrown hairs? If so, laser hair removal might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Let’s discuss what you can expect during a laser hair removal treatment so you can feel empowered to make an informed decision.

The Treatment Process

Here is a breakdown of what happens throughout the laser hair removal procedure.

Consultation and Assessment

Before starting your first laser hair removal session, your provider will conduct a comprehensive consultation. This consultation involves evaluating your skin type, discussing any medications you’re on, and reviewing your medical history. 

If there are concerns about medications causing photosensitivity or other factors affecting treatment safety or efficacy, the technician may conduct a spot test or advise against immediate treatment.

Your provider will also advise you during consultation of the restrictions for treatment:

  • No waxing for 4 weeks prior to treatment
  • No sun exposure for 4 weeks before or after treatment
  • No spray tans
  • Must avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for 4 weeks before and after treatments


During this phase, your provider will discuss which areas you wish to target for hair removal, providing visual guidance if necessary. You will receive protective eyewear to safeguard your eyes during the procedure.

Treatment Process and Precautions

Throughout the treatment, your provider will shield areas not undergoing laser treatment to maintain your comfort and privacy. They use modesty towels as needed and keep you informed about each step of the process to ensure you feel at ease. 

Appointment Guidelines

Please ensure punctuality for your appointment. It’s also necessary to shave the targeted areas the day before or the day of treatment for optimal results. Please come in with clean skin without lotions or fragrances.

Post-Treatment Care

Following your laser hair removal session, you might experience increased sensitivity and redness. These symptoms are typically brief. You can manage them with ice packs as needed.
