What do I need to do before my appointment?

Category: Laser
  1. Shave the area within the 24 hours before your appointment.
    • The closer the shave the better. If it is your first time, leave a small patch of hair so that your specialist can exam it. (she’ll shave it down before beginning the treatment!)
    • For bikini services, don’t shave the part where you want to keep the hair.
  2. Skip the makeup/lotion/deodorant the day of your appointment (in the area where you are receiving a treatment).
  3. Protect your skin from UV rays before and after your appointment (even on cloudy days) to ensure your skin maintains its natural color and you avoid any added pigmentation caused by sun exposure.
  4. Not use self-tanner or spray tan products for at least 2 weeks before your treatment to avoid potential injury.
  5. Avoid drinking more than 2 alcoholic beverages 24 hours before your treatment (be sure to factor that in if you have party plans!).
  6. Avoid waxing/sugaring/threading/tweezing in the area for at least 4 weeks. Shaving is ok!
  7. Upon arrival, complete your laser form as honestly as possible (don’t be shy!).
    • We ask that you disclose personal information regarding your medical history & background, which will be reviewed during your consultation.
    • The information you provide is important to customize the laser settings for the safest & most effective results for you!
    • If you are under the care of physician, you may be asked to provide a doctor’s note (so be proactive & ask your doc ahead of time!).

Important notes: (1) Laser services cannot be performed on ladies who are pregnant, think they may be pregnant or are breastfeeding. (2) Bikini laser services will not be performed on menstruating clients in accordance with our Shobha No Periodsm Policy.
