No Comments on Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal in Edmonton is an effective and long-lasting treatment. To benefit the most from this treatment, though, it is essential for our patients to prepare properly. Part of that preparation should be selecting a qualified physician to supervise your treatments.

Why choosing a medical doctor is important: Imagine going to a center for laser hair removal – and leaving with painful burns that result in scarring. It sounds like a nightmare. But it is a very dangerous and unfortunate reality that has occurred to many people who visit a practitioner who is not qualified. Lasers are a very powerful medical technology that, in the hands of someone who is not fully and properly trained, can cause burning. While it is not necessary to have a doctor perform your treatment, it’s a good idea to choose a laser hair removal practice that is supervised by an MD, who should be carefully selecting each member of his or her medical team.

What you need to know to prepare for your laser hair removal treatment: Prior to your treatment, it is important to avoid photosensitizing medications, fake tanning products, Retin A or hydroquinone, and related products. These products can interfere with your laser hair treatment. When you schedule your appointment, we will always take the time to explain in detail precisely what to avoid and what precautions to take to obtain the optimal results from your procedure.

My staff and I are always available to discuss proper preparation, as well as our extensive qualifications, training, and experience performing laser hair removal. I invite you to learn more by calling us at (780) 428-9333, or you can contact me for more information.
