Prep for Summer with Laser Hair Removal

Is the warmer weather getting you excited for sunny beach days? Prep your body for summer with laser hair removal treatments at Florida Aesthetics! Laser hair removal is beneficial in many ways, however, you need to make sure that you prepare for your treatment ahead of time. You’ll also want to make sure you know how to care for and protect your skin after treatment.


Laser treatment is useful for removing hair from unwanted places including legs, chin, face, back, bikini line, and other areas. Through laser treatment you’ll have the benefits of precision, speed, and predictability. Lasers are effective at targeting dark, coarse hairs with precision, and without causing damage to any of the surrounding skin. Every pulse of the laser takes only a fraction of a second, treating many hairs at once. The process goes even more quickly in smaller areas, such as the upper lip, which can be treated in minutes. After three to seven sessions you can expect to experience permanent hair loss in the treated areas, as reported by most patients.

Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is considered a medical treatment, which requires training, and has potential risks involved. If you’re planning to begin laser treatment, be sure to spend time researching the risks and potential side effects. At Florida Aesthetics, our laser technicians are certified and experienced in preforming the laser hair removal procedure.

In the weeks leading up to your treatment, limit plucking or waxing in the area that is to be treated. Plan to avoid sun exposure as much as possible for 6 weeks before and after treatment as it can make the hair removal treatment less effective and increase the likelihood for complications.

After Treatment

In the days directly after treatment your skin will feel sunburned and may even appear reddish in color. Talk with your hair removal technician about moisturizers that you can use to sooth your skin. If the area of treatment is on your face, you’ll still be able to wear makeup the next day after treatment. Be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen to protect your skin in the treated area for at least a month after treatment. This will prevent any permanent color changes in the skin of that area.
