However, first-timers may be unsure how to prepare for their session. While a consultation at your trusted laser clinic in Toronto will cover most of your questions and concerns, you may have other queries before even booking your Brazilian laser hair removal in Toronto.
To help ease anxiety about Brazilian laser hair removal, here are some ways to prepare before your trip to the laser clinic in Toronto.
Set Up a Consultation
Scheduling a consultation will help determine if this is the correct procedure for you. Consultations will typically include questions about your health and medical history, details about the procedure, the level of hair removal necessary, and the price estimate for your Brazilian laser hair removal in Toronto. The specialists at IGBeauty laser clinic in Toronto are happy to talk to you and answer any questions, addressing all of your concerns and hopes.
About three days before your session, you should lightly exfoliate your bikini area. Exfoliation is excellent for eliminating dead skin cells in the treatment area and also makes removing hairs easier. When exfoliating, it’s crucial to be gentle; you can exfoliate the area with a soft brush or soft exfoliating gloves. Avoid harsh scrubs that strip and tear the skin.
Shave, Don’t Wax
Shaving before your session is essential for effective results. When shaving, it’s imperative to take your time and be gentle; if you have any nicks or cuts from shaving too quickly, your hair removal technician will avoid the area. Shave at least 12-24 hours before your laser hair removal session. Don’t tweeze or wax because that will pull the hair out of the follicles and slow results from your laser hair removal treatment.
While Brazilian laser hair removal isn’t a surgical procedure and is relatively painless, some people may choose to take pain medications before their session. However, you should avoid Ibuprofen (Advil), Naproxen (Aleve), or any other NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), they can cause bruising. If you decide to take a pain reliever, opt for Acetaminophen (Tylenol).
Numbing cream application is also available at additional cost. Following a treatment aloe vera can be applied topically to soothe irritation or redness.
While this may seem obvious, you should shower before going to the laser clinic for your session. The bikini area tends to have an unpleasant smell if you don’t bathe or shower, so to make your session more enjoyable for everyone involved, thoroughly clean the area. A hot shower will also open up your pores, increasing the efficacy of the laser and guaranteeing you the best results.
How to Dress
You should dress in comfortable and loose-fitting clothes for your session. Since you shouldn’t irritate the area after your laser hair removal is finished, opt for loose linen pants or a skirt. If you wear tight-fitting clothes, like leggings or jeans, friction can increase inflammation and irritation.
What Not To Do
Avoid any sunbathing or tanning before your procedure. If your bikini area becomes exposed to the sun before your session, you will have to reschedule. If you insist on going to the beach the days before your appointment, cover up with shorts or a sarong to protect the area from harmful UV rays.
