How to Prepare for IPL Laser Hair Removal

IPL laser hair removal treatment is a safe and effective way to permanently reduce the amount of unwanted body hair. Before beginning the process, it is important to know what to expect during IPL laser hair removal treatments and how to prepare for IPL laser hair removal treatment.

Below are some tips on how you can prepare for your IPL hair removal treatment for the best results.

Getting Prepared for IPL Laser Hair Removal

Getting prepared for IPL laser hair removal – shave on the day!

Avoid Sun Exposure

Avoid tanning or sun exposure as much as possible before your treatment. IPL laser hair removal requires that your skin is in its natural state with no dark patches or colour changes due to tanning, which means avoiding sun exposure for at least 4 – 6 weeks before your appointment.

Shave for Optimal Results

Shave the area where you will receive treatment before your appointment. Although IPL laser hair removal works on all types of skin tones, it works best when the targeted area is shaved. This will expose the hair follicles and make them more susceptible to the laser’s intense pulsed light (IPL).

Wear Comfortable Clothing

Wear loose, natural fibre clothing. Tight clothes can be uncomfortable during IPL laser hair removal treatment and may cause burns or other skin reactions. Natural fibres such as cotton are best for this procedure.

Try to Limit Caffeine

It’s not forever, but try to limit caffeine intake on the day of your appointment. Too much caffeine can make you jittery and anxious, which can affect your experience during IPL laser hair removal treatments. It’s best to limit your caffeine intake before going in for treatment.

Moisturise Daily

Exfoliate and moisturise daily for a week or more to remove dead and dry skin and to keep the area soft for the IPL procedure. Dry skin can form a barrier to the IPL so be sure to shower before your appointment too.

Wax in Advance

If you prefer to wax instead of shave that’s fine too. Just be sure to wax the area at least three weeks before your first treatment. This will remove any older hairs that won’t respond to the treatment well if left in the area.

Consult with Your Beautician

It’s important to consult with a professional before your treatment to make sure you have taken all the necessary steps for exceptional IPL hair removal treatment.
