Self-Care Tips Before Your Laser Hair Removal

You deserve to be well-informed before scheduling a laser hair removal consultation and treatment. Choose only a board certified dermatologist who has earned a proven record of successful laser hair removal. It is also good to know important self-care tips before you undergo hair removal to make sure your treatment and recovery are as comfortable as possible.

Board Certified Laser Hair Removal Dermatologist

Sherri Peace MD – Board Certified Dermatologist – has been successfully practicing laser hair removal since 1994. At Westchester Dermatology you will be treated with state-of-the-art laser hair removal technology – cost-efficiently and safely.

There is a wide array of target areas that can be treated with laser hair removal:

  • Face
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Nipples
  • Bikini line

Experienced Laser Hair Removal Technique

Only state-of-the-art laser hair removal technology restricts follicle growth by sending a laser light directly into a hair’s pigment. A cooling system providing a blast of cold air to the area being treated helps reduce most pain experienced.

You can expect to undergo five to six treatments depending on your:

  • Body or face area to be treated
  • Hair thickness
  • Growth cycle of hair

Helpful Tips to Know Before Laser Hair Removal

Within 24 before your appointment, shave all areas that will be treated to avoid irritation. It is important not to remove the roots of hair because these are needed for successful treatment.

This includes:

  • No hair removal creams
  • No waxing
  • No plucking
  • No threading

Don’t participate in activities that will elevate your body temperature and heart rate before the treatment. A high body temp may make your treatment more painful.

Don’t plan on these spa and self-care regimens that can irritate your skin after treatment:

  • Hot showers, tubs, saunas
  • Exercise or extreme activity
  • Avoid applying skincare products – except those recommended by Dr. Sherri Peace
