Contraindications for Laser Hair Removal

Serving Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary and Surrounding Areas in North Carolina

Prior to a laser hair removal, laser skin tightening or laser vein treatment new patients will first have a consultation with a physician who will perform a brief history and physical to determine that laser hair removal can be safe and effective for the client. Skin irritation, sunburn, rashes, etc. would be a contraindication to laser hair removal. Some medications that cause photosensitivity could also be a contraindication.

Please view the list to help to be prepared for laser hair removal:

  • Patient must be clean shaven in all treatment areas on day of treatment. A charge of $50 or more will be added if laser tech shaves for patient.
  • Patient cannot have bleached, waxed or plucked the hair in areas to be treated within two weeks of appointment.
  • No depilatory (cream, gel, or foam hair removal product) can be used for 2 weeks prior to appointment.
  • Patient must avoid intense sun exposure (including tanning beds)10 days before and after treatment.
