What do I do before Laser treatment?
You are asked to shave the area(s) being treated one or two days before.
It is recommended to avoid intense UV exposure for 7 days before laser treatment.
What happens after treatment?
What seems like regrowth of hair may surface at the treated area 3-7 days after treatment. Most of those hairs are not regrowing but are being shed as a result of treatment. Between treatments it is permissible to shave, but you should not wax or pluck.
It is advised to avoid UV exposure for 3-4 days after treatment with either laser. Don’t forget to use sun block after treatments.

What are the possible side effects?
