How to Prepare for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Learn how to prepare for a laser treatment from Completely Bare owner (and former Real Housewife of NYC) Cindy Barshop in this Howcast video.


There's a couple of things that you have to do before you're preparing for a laser appointment, especially if it's your first time. If it's your first one make sure you're not on any type of medication like Accutane, or if you just took an antibiotic. That would be my first step. The next thing, is also, if you've waxed recently make sure that the last time you waxed was approximately three weeks ago. If you shave you just want to see a dot above the skin. So that's one of the big things, when people walk in and they are like Uh-I can't do it. The other thing, on the overall is, wash the area, obviously, that you are going to get treated. Make sure that there is no oil on the area that is being treated. Make sure that you don't have a fresh tan, and you're good to go. So, one of the other things that you have to make sure of is that the area is, obviously, clean, and the other part is that it doesn't have a sunless tanner on that area. Also, the other thing I would say is to make sure that some of your moisturizer doesn't have a sunless tanner because sometimes we don't even know anymore. And, lastly, is not a fresh tan.
