Think of what you could do with an extra 72 days! Elite iQ™ treatments offer quick, easy and customized laser hair removal using smart technology. You can now permanently reduce unwanted hair with a treatment personalized to your specific skin type!

Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some essential preparation steps to follow before your laser hair removal treatment:

  1. Shave the Day Before: Arrive at your appointment with shaved skin.

  2. Avoid Fragrances and Lotions: Refrain from using perfume, lotion, deodorant, or cologne on the treatment area before your appointment.

  3. Sun Exposure and Self-Tanning: Steer clear of UV exposure and self-tanning products for at least 14 days beforehand. If you have residual self-tanner color, consider exfoliating the area.

  4. Stay Cool: Activities that raise body temperature and cause sweating should be avoided the day of your appointment. This includes working out, hot tubs, baths, showers, and swimming pools.

  5. Avoid Certain Skin Treatments: Refrain from skin resurfacing, collagen-stimulating treatments (such as chemical peels, micro-needling, and microdermabrasion), and other laser treatments for at least 4 weeks prior to your appointment.

  6. Be Cautious with Product Use: If treating facial areas, avoid alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids (AHA’s + BHA’s), retinoids, retinol, glycolic/salicylic peels, benzoyl peroxide, and hydroquinone for 7 days before your appointment.

  7. Hair Removal Methods: Stop waxing, tweezing, sugaring, threading, bleaching, or using chemical depilatories or hair removal creams in the desired treatment area for at least 4 weeks before your appointment.

  8. Antiviral Medication for Cold Sores: If you have a history of herpes or cold sores, consult your doctor about taking antiviral medication (such as Valtrex or Valicylciror) before and after your treatment.

Remember that individual experiences may vary, so it’s essential to consult with a professional to determine the best approach for your specific needs.
