4 Things to know before getting Laser Hair Removal this Christmas

04 November 2020

What better way to make the most of your holidays by jump-starting your beauty regimen and getting that long overdue laser hair removal treatment done?

We all can be lazy from time to time, and it only makes sense for you not wanting to spend your precious time shaving and waxing again and again.

Did you know?

An average person spends as much as 100 days of their lifetime shaving.

That’s like a hundred days you could spend being productive or even indulge in your leisure hobbies instead of wasting countless time for short-term and painful solutions to unwanted body hair. If you’re looking for a rather permanent solution for your unwanted hair woes, laser hair removal is just what you need. Winter is the perfect time for laser treatments as there is less sun exposure but it’s summer time in New Zealand so there are a few things to consider before opting for a laser hair removal treatment.

  • No sun exposure before an appointment:

Stay out of the sun at least 4 weeks before your first appointment. You can’t get the treatment if you’re sunburned or even tanned. Summer laser treatments require a lot of commitment and if you’re one of those who like to kick it outdoors, this might not be the best time for you to get the treatment.

  • No tanning beds, spray tans, or tanning lotion:

No tanning of any sort at least 4 weeks before your treatment day. You can’t cheat your way to a laser hair removal treatment. Stay committed and stay indoors binge watching your favorite Netflix TV shows.

  • Shave the body area getting treated:

Unlike waxing, laser treatments do not require you to come in your legs looking like an Amazon rain forest. It is best advisable to shave a day before your appointment and even if you don’t, your physician will give you a razor to do it then and there.

  • Don’t wax before an appointment:

Don’t wax at least 10 days before your appointment, in fact don’t wax at all. It’s a painful and outdated solution. You can’t get a laser treatment if you waxed recently. The laser focuses on the PIGMENT of your hair follicle, and it can’t happen if the follicle isn’t there.
