What to expect at The Skin Lab?
On your arrival, we will work through a comprehensive questionnaire, where you’ll be asked about any skin conditions or health conditions you may have. We’ll also need to know about any medication or supplements you may be taking.
We will then carry out a patch test with the laser on all parts of the body that you require laser hair removal on. The areas should be moitored for 24 hours for any reaction.
You should avoid waxing and plucking hairs atleast for four to six weeks prior to the treatment. Within 24 hours of the treatment, please ensure that your skin is shaved and you have no fake tan or moisturiser applied ahead of your consultation. If you have any fake tan on your skin, it may not be possible to proceed with the laser hair removal treatment on that day.
During the treatment, you will be given protective eye goggles and a cold gel to protect the skin and minimize side effects.
