What Are The Before And After Precautions For Laser Hair Removal ?

Posted on February 21, 2022 By Livia Briggs

Hair removal procedures are often frustrating and painful. While waxing, shaving and tweezing hair are effective, these solutions are only temporary. If you are looking for long-term yet effective hair removal methods, then laser hair removal treatments are the way to go. Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body with unwanted hair growth. 

However, before you undergo the procedure, you must take certain aspects into consideration.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Most of the laser hair removal procedures are virtually painless and take only a few minutes to complete. The light of the laser beam is converted into heat energy. Melanin, the pigment in hair follicles, absorbs the light and destroys the hair follicles from the root. This breaks the growth cycle by up to 50-90%, resulting in delayed and comparatively thiner hair growth. 

Other effective methods of laser hair removal include the Soprano Titanium method. By using 3D technology, Soprano Titanium combines three wavelengths into a single applicator, targeting different tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicle. 

Precautions to Take Before Your Treatment

There is a multitude of things to consider before undergoing laser hair removal:

  • Do not wax or pluck: Laser hair removal works by targeting roots of the hair follicles; thus, it is important to stop waxing at least 4 weeks before your appointment. 
  • Be sure to shave the area to be treated the day before your treatment.
  • Keep a check on your medications: Certain medications can interfere with your treatment. They can make your skin more sensitive and cause a burn or a blister. It is best to be honest about any medication you might be taking.  

What to expect after Laser Hair Removal with the Soprano Titanium?

Some of the post-care tips include:


Skin may appear slightly red.  This will subside within 24 hours

You may apply aloe vera or Dermafade to the area if needed.

Hair may still grow in between treatments. 

Hair will reduce 10-20% with each treatment

You can shave or clipper in between your treatments

DO NOT pluck, wax, epilady or tweeze the hairs

DO NOT expose the area to sun/UV for 24 hours

DO NOT have a very hot shower or sauna for 24 hours

DO NOT apply fake tan/self tan to the area for 24 hours
