Avoid excessive sun exposure and use broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, even on cloudy days, to protect your skin from UV damage. Start this habit one week before your laser treatment.
Refrain from tanning, whether through sunbathing, tanning beds, or self-tanning products, for at least four weeks before the laser procedure.
Discontinue Certain Products:
Avoid using skincare products containing retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and vitamin C at least one week before the treatment to reduce the risk of skin sensitivity.
Stop Waxing and Depilatory Creams:
Cease waxing, threading, or using depilatory creams in the treatment area for about two weeks before the procedure.
No Recent Skin Injuries or Infections:
Ensure the skin in the treatment area is free from recent injuries, cuts, infections, or cold sores.
Avoid Blood-Thinning Medications:
If you are taking blood-thinning medications or supplements, consult your healthcare provider about temporarily discontinuing them before the procedure, if medically safe.
Maintain well-hydrated skin by drinking an adequate amount of water and using a gentle, hydrating moisturizer regularly.
Use a mild, non-irritating cleanser to clean your skin on the day of the procedure.
Remove all makeup, lotions, and creams from the treatment area before arriving for the laser procedure.
Avoid Alcohol and Smoking:
Refrain from consuming alcohol and smoking for at least a few days before the treatment, as these habits can affect skin health and healing.
Inform us of any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements, as they may advise adjustments or discontinuation if necessary.
