Preparing for your Laser hair removal session!

You've decided to choose Kali Clinic as your clinic of choice for your Laser hair removal journey!

Before you put yourself forward for a treatment make sure you have voiced any potential concerns or questions you may have about the treatment. You can do this by emailing or messaging us!

Below is all you need to know and do to prepare for your first visit!

When preparing for Laser Hair Removal you should avoid:

*Tanning of any kind.

*Waxing, plucking and bleaching 2-4 weeks before hair removal.

*Putting cosmetics, lotions, creams and deodorant on the area before the treatment.

*Avoid any other skin treatments that my increase the risk of irritation, such as chemical peels or collagen injections.

Things you need to do to prepare for your Laser hair removal sessions:

*Lightly exfoliate 3-4 days before your session

*For treatment to be effective and safe all hair must be removed before your treatment.

*Shave the day/night before your treatment, do NOT shave on the day of your treatment.

*Ensure you have a clean, sharp razor each time you shave to get a close/safe shave.

*Wash the areas that will be treated with soap and warm water. This will help to remove any dirt, oils, and makeup that may interfere with the treatment. After showering, don’t apply any lotions, perfumes, or deodorants to the areas that will be treated. This may interfere with the treatment.

Additional ways to prepare for your Laser hair removal sessions:

*Take a picture that shows the area where you're having laser hair removal before going in for the procedure.

*Try taking pictures from a few different angles so that you can see the difference more clearly. This is a great way to remember where you started!

*you may take a mild pain reliever but try to avoid Ibuprofen. Why? Iburofen can cause your skin to be more sensitive and may lead to slight bruising after treatment.  Paracetamol is fine but you really shouldn’t need any pain relief. We are gentle and take things slow to ensure you have an easy experience.

How to protect yourself, your skin and your results after your Laser hair removal sessions:

*Apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with at least an SPF 30 if you do need to spend time outdoors.

Remember that laser hair removal is a safe and virtually painless treatment which can be used on any part of the body. As we use lasers during the treatment you will be given goggles to protect your eyes. Following the treatment a cooling gel will be applied to your skin, and any redness should be reduced over 24 hours.
