Your Ultimate Guide to Laser Hair Removal

Your Ultimate Guide to Laser Hair Removal

Congratulations on beginning or continuing your laser hair removal journey with Vita Beauty Bar! We know laser hair removal can be life-changing, and we're grateful to share this experience with you. To help you get the most out of your treatments, we've created this comprehensive laser guide.

Before Your Appointment

  • Day Of Appointment: Clean shave the treatment area. Avoid perfume, lotion, self-tan, or deodorant on the treatment area.
  • Avoid Intensive Sun Exposure: Avoid deep tanning 3-4 weeks before your appointment. If you have a noticeable tan line, wait 3-4 weeks after the last sun exposure. Passive sun exposure not resulting in a tan is generally safe.
  • Hair Removal Methods: Avoid bleaching, tweezing, waxing, using depilatory creams, or epilating hair 4 weeks before treatment. Shaving should be the only hair removal method before your appointment.
  • Cosmetic Treatments: Botox or dermal fillers can be done immediately after laser treatment. Wait 2 weeks after treatments like chemical peels before lasering the treated area.
  • Self-Tanning Products: Discontinue use 7-10 days before treatment and remove any residual product.
  • Shaving: Fully shave the treatment area within 24 hours before your appointment.
  • Skin Tones and Hair Types: Our GentleMax Pro laser can safely treat all skin tones. Laser hair removal does not work on white, grey, some blonde, and red hair types. Contact us for a complimentary test patch if unsure.
  • Medications and Health Conditions: Consider antiviral therapy if you have a history of herpes simplex virus. Avoid laser treatments while pregnant; they are safe while breastfeeding but may affect results.
  • Tattoos: We cannot laser over tattoos but can work around them.
  • Medications: Consult your physician or pharmacist to ensure laser treatments are safe with your current medications, particularly photosensitizing drugs.

Post-Treatment Care

  • Immediate Reactions: Redness and small bumps around the hair follicles are normal. Use a cool compress, cortisone, aloe, or an allergy pill for relief.
  • Hair Shedding: Shedding may occur 5-14 days post-treatment. Gentle exfoliation can help with hair sloughing out.
  • Sun Exposure: Resume sun activities 3-5 days after treatment using mineral-based sunscreen.
  • Products and Makeup: Apply makeup, lotions, or deodorant if there is no noticeable inflammation. Avoid perfume or alcohol-based products on treated areas.
  • Bathing: No restrictions on bathing, but treat the skin gently for the first 24 hours.
  • Rebooking and Maintenance: Rebook every 4-6 weeks initially, then extend time between treatments as hair growth decreases. Annual maintenance may be required.
