4 Things You Should Know Before Getting Laser Hair Removal

You are going to Mexico tomorrow and have an appointment for laser hair removal at the International Beauty Institute. On your way to the appointment, you visualize yourself prancing on the beach in your new itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka dot bikini – no hair in site!

The esthetician calls you into the room. You sit down eagerly as she asks, “Have you been tanning?” “Why yes!” You exclaim excitedly, happy that she noticed. “I am getting a good base for Mexico!” “Sorry Janet” the esthetician starts, “We won’t be able to do the laser hair removal today.” Oh no, where is the closest Victoria Secret? Girl, you need a one piece, or better yet…a wet suit. Keep reading for four things you should know before coming to your laser hair removal appointment.

1. Do Not Tan 4 Weeks Before Your Appointment

For most people, laser hair removal is ideal to do in the summer, or just before a vacation. Ensure you are not hitting the tanning beds or lying out in the sun for at least 4 weeks before you get your follicles zapped.

2. Shave the Day Before Your Appointment

While you may think that having a laser hair removal appointment is a good excuse to let loose and channel your inner caveman – DO NOT. It’s actually best if you come to your appointment hairless. Note: Do not wax – simply shave the day before your appointment

3. You Will Not Be Hair-Free Forever After 1 Appointment

It takes about 2-6 sessions to start seeing results. After this, your hair will grow back noticeably less, but still requires more treatments, less frequently.

I came to the International Beauty Institute 3 years ago. I needed to do something different in my life beside shift work. I was very nervous about coming back to school, since I been out for a long time. When I came for a tour, I was very happy with what I saw, the class sizes were small, and that made me feel more comfortable. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, I felt like I was part of an IBI family. I ended up getting a full time job, where I’m very happy. I have no regrets, with the choices I have made, by picking IBI. It was the best experience in my life, thank you everyone at IBI!! If you are thinking about becoming a Medical Aesthetician, don’t hesitate to visit IBI!
