Laser hair removal works when the targeted hair is in anagen stage, this is when the hair is still attached to the papilla and usually lasts 2-3 weeks

It is the best time to get your treatment done as when the hair still is attached to the papilla, the laser will work all the way down the hair shaft and burn it to prevent any further growth.


No Sun Tanning or Artificial Tanning

Even if our laser machine, the Soprano XL by Alma Laser is able to work on all skin types and it is safe to use on tanned skin, we do NOT recommend artificial tanning or sun tanning at least 2 weeks prior and after each laser treatment.

The laser targets the chromophore (colour), the dark pigments on the skin, in this case the hair follicle. The more contrast there is between the colour of the hair and your skin the better.

That would not be the case if you get a tan. Therefore for better and safer results, we advise not to tan prior, between and after each laser session.


Avoid Stress

Try to take it easy and take more breaks at work and during difficult times, besides being bad for your hair reduction is definitely not good for your self as well and you certainly want to get the best results from each visit.

It is important that when you come in for your session, the hair follicle it still is attached to the papilla and have roots.

The laser, will first target the hair, once hits it, it will  transforms into heat and go all the way down to the very root of the hair – the area you want to burn and destroy to avoid further growth.

You can shave in between treatments as long as you don’t pick your hair with twizzers, remove them with waxing or electrolysis or lighten them up with bleaching. After walking it is necessary to wait up to 6 weeks before it is possible to start your laser session.


Shave the area prior each treatment and be on time for your appointment
