We don’t recommend waxing after your treatments, or in between your treatments.
You will have permanent results if you continue your laser treatments.
Before starting your Laser Hair Removal sessions, we recommend you stop waxing at least 4 weeks before your appointment.
For a laser treatment to be effective, the follicles must contain hair. Waxing removes the entire hair from the follicle, if you were to wax and remove all your hair and then laser treatment it would be completely ineffective.
Excess hair on the surface of the skin must be removed before each session. To remove the hair, we recommend you only shave or use hair removal cream.
If you are thinking about starting a course of laser hair removal it’s best to stop waxing, plucking or epilating. All of these methods remove the entire hair from the follicle. We recommend you stop at least 4-6 weeks before your first session.
Before your sessions, we ask for you to shave 24 hours before or use hair removal cream 48 hours before each one of your sessions.
At the end of your course you may notice some fine blond hairs left in your treatment area. These hairs are fine to wax if needed. As laser does not respond to blond, grey or red hairs these hairs will remain after a full course of treatment. For the majority of people any light fluffy regrowth that may remain can simply be shaved every once in a while or maintained by waxing. We recommend that if this growth is brown, or black, that you have a maintenance laser session to reduce it.
Laser hair removal gives much longer lasting results than waxing. Over time strong stubborn hair reduces and issues like ingrown hairs or irritated skin are a thing of the past.
