Here are some tips to prepare for the treatment:

  Avoid plucking, electrolysis or hair waxing of hairs for six weeks prior to the treatment.

  Keep your skin thoroughly cleanse, clean-shaven, and dried.

  Remove makeup, creams, oils, perfumes, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment.

  Avoid sun exposure 3 weeks before and after the treatment.

  If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, you should mention about this.

During Treatment Process:

  During the procedure, you will be given a safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light.

  We may apply ice packs on the affected area before the laser for minutes.

  A treatment lasts for minutes or may take up an hour’s time, depending on the size of the area and condition being treated.

  During the treatment, you will feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like a snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by Candela’s cooling system.

Post-Treatment Effects:

  Redness or swelling may occur and it will last for few hours.

  Don’t scrub or rinse on the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers for a few days.

  Take the precautionary guidelines and advice from your practitioner.

The number of sessions depends on the treatment, which you require, and the condition of your skin. For body laser hair removal such as Arms, Underarms, and Legs, it requires only one session. Generally, for laser hair removal, it requires multiple sessions. Most of the people require 4-6 sessions for the body and 4-8 sessions for facial as well as fine hairs. The intervals require between the sessions for body laser hair removal is 6-10 weeks and for facial laser hair removal it requires 4-6 weeks. After laser hair removal, for the first session, it takes a week or a two for all the hairs in the treated area to fall out. You will experience several weeks of no growth of hairs in the treated area. If the new hair growth is detected, it is time for re-treating the area. Shaving is permitted at any time during this procedure.
