Laser hair removal in St. Louis helps you get rid of unwanted hair for good. If you have scheduled an appointment for this treatment at the medical spa, use the following tips to prepare:
Schedule a Consultation
Before you can get laser hair removal, you must meet with a doctor to discuss your medical history. Give the doctor a detailed list of any medications that you are currently taking. The doctor will give you more details about the procedure, including information about the risks, benefits, and expectations so you know exactly what to expect from it. The doctor will also take some photos so you can see the before-and-after results.
Do Not Go in the Sun
Tans and sunburns can negatively affect your results. Exposing your skin to the sun before the procedure could increase your risk for side effects like skin lightening. Try to stay out of the sun for a couple of weeks before your hair removal appointment so you do not have to worry about sun damage interfering with your results. If you are already tan, you should wait until it fades to schedule your appointment for laser hair removal.
Do Not Pluck or Wax
You should not pluck or wax your skin before your appointment. Since these activities might affect the hair follicle, it could create an issue during the laser hair removal process. You can shave before your appointment, though. Your doctor might even prefer that you shave so you can remove the hair about the skin to make it easier for the laser to target the hair follicle.
