  • Do NOT wax, pluck, or tweeze the hairs prior to Laser Hair Removal.
  • DO shave or trim the hairs short prior to Laser Hair Removal.
  • DO not get a tan before you get your Laser Hair Removal, as this also increases the risk of hyperpigmentation.
  • Laser Hair Removal will not work if the hair is gray or white because the melanin in the hair bulb which the laser targets is no longer there!
