Embarking on your journey towards smooth, hair-free skin is an exciting decision. At Glow 2 Go, we understand that your first laser hair removal session might come with a mix of excitement and uncertainty. That’s why we’re here to guide you through the preparation process, what to expect during the session, and how to care for your skin afterward, ensuring a comfortable and effective experience.

Before Your Laser Hair Removal Session

Preparation is key to a successful treatment. Here are some steps to prepare for your session:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Keep the treatment area protected from the sun for at least two weeks prior to your appointment to prevent skin sensitivity.
  • Shave the Area: Shave the treatment zone 24-48 hours before your session. This step is crucial as it helps the laser target the hair roots while minimizing surface skin damage.
  • Skip Other Hair Removal Methods: For six weeks before your treatment, avoid waxing, plucking, or electrolysis. These methods can interfere with the hair follicle and reduce the effectiveness of the laser treatment.
  • Avoid Certain Skincare Products: Stop using skincare products containing retinol or glycolic acid at least 48 hours before your session, as these can increase skin sensitivity.

During Your Laser Hair Removal Session

Knowing what to expect can ease any nerves about your first laser hair removal experience:

  • Comfort Is Key: At Glow 2 Go, your comfort and safety are our top priorities. You’ll be provided with protective eyewear, and our skilled technicians will use cooling devices or gels to protect your skin.
  • Session Length: Depending on the area being treated, sessions can last from a few minutes to an hour.
  • Sensation: You may feel a snapping sensation, like a rubber band hitting the skin, but discomfort is minimal and manageable.

After Your Session: Post-Treatment Care

Proper care after your session is essential for the best results and comfort:

  • Avoid Heat: Skip hot baths, saunas, and strenuous workouts for 24-48 hours to minimize irritation.
  • Sun Protection: Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen to the treated area when outdoors to protect your skin and maintain results.
  • Be Patient: Results vary by individual, and it may take multiple sessions to achieve optimal hair reduction.
