Preparing Yourself for Laser Hair Removal
This procedure is not like any other cosmetic treatment like waxing or threading. It is a medical procedure and needs to be performed by train experts to avoid any form of risks. It is important that you verify the credentials of the person performing this procedure for yourself.

2. The outer layer of your skin will then be protected with a cold gel or a special cooling device which will also help the laser to penetrate your skin.
3. Now the operator will give a pulse of light to your skin for a few minutes to ensure that the optimal parameters are used and that our skin does not react to the laser. Depending on the nature of your treatment you sitting can range between 15 minutes to an hour.
4. After ever sitting, you will be expected to use Aloe Vera gels, anti-inflammatory creams and lotion to avoid any reactions and discomfort.
