Patient Instructions for Laser Hair Removal


  1. The treatment area needs to be shaved to skin level , although a days hair growth may be necessary and helpful so that the area that requires treatment is easily recognizable.
  2. You must avoid waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis of the hair for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. The laser needs the hair at skin level in order to effectively destroy the hair follicle.
  3. Avoid the sun exposure for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. The GentleLASE® or ELOS T Aurora will work on most skin types, but the lighter you can allow your skin to get, the better and safer your skin is likely to be. The lighter skin allows more energy to be delivered to the target. A “skin” bleaching cream such as Hydroquinone may be started 4-6 weeks before treatment in order optimize results.
  4. Be sure that the treatment area is fully washed off and has no makeup, medication etc.
  5. Be certain that you are not on medications such as Accutane, Retin-A, Gold Therapy etc, at present or within the past 6 months. These medications, and several others, can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser. If in doubt, please ask us for a list of the said medications.
  6. Laser treatments for hair are not recommended if you are pregnant.


  1. Avoid bathing or washing with very hot water, Use tepid water. Wash gently. Keep the area clean.
  2. Do not shave the treated area for at least 4 days after treatment.
  3. Avoid any irritating medications or chemicals. Examples of these are Retin-A, Benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or astringents.
  4. Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 weeks after treatment. Protect the area with a sunscreen of higher than 30 SPF or else the skin may develop hyper-pigmentation /hypo-pigmentation marks.
  5. The treated area may become pink, red, inflamed, or even blistered within 30 minutes and in rare instances last several hours to several days. Regular application of ice, cooling gels, Hydrocortisone or Neosporin is important for relief.
  6. Do not wax, pluck, thread or use depilatories for the hair that grows back.
  7. After laser treatment, hair may continue to grow out as if it were never treated. Typically this will occur for about 2-3 weeks and then those treated hair will simply begin to fall out.
  8. Generally it is best to wait 4-6 weeks between treatments. There is no advantage to scheduling your visits closer together even if you do not see immediate results. The laser only targets hair in the growth phase. The next growth phase is generally in 4-6 weeks.

Here Are a Number of Advantages of Laser Hair Removal at LUMIERE:

MULTIPLE SYSTEMS : At LUMIERE we feature multiple laser’s including the FDA approved Candela’s GentleLASE, GentleYAG and “GentleMax” lasers as well as Syneron’s Aurora.

We are committed to offering patients the most advanced, most effective, and safest technology for laser hair removal. Instead of single laser-only systems that may pose a challenge for treating various skin tones and hair types, at Lumiere we have the advantage of systematically combining the use of our Multiple Lasers, IPL and Radio Frequency technologies in order to provide our clients with a most effective and safe option for laser hair removal on the lightest to the darkest skin tones or hair types.

EFFECTIVENESS : The lasers we use are FDA approved and have been evaluated as the most effective in peer-reviewed medical journals. These sophisticated lasers target the root of the hair so specifically that they not only eliminate very dark and coarse hair, but are also the most effective lasers for the removal of fine hair and even hair with a light brown root.

AFFORDABILITY : Our laser performs treatments at a very high speed while offering complete coverage, therefore enabling us to charge less per treatment. We never insist on paying for packages up front, our clients pay per treatment. We are confident that our lasers’ great results will bring our clients back for completion and follow up treatments.

EVALUATIONS and CUSTOMIZATION : Before, During & After: Your safety and satisfaction are our primary concerns. Our laser practitioners perform test spots and assess hair and skin types for treatment eligibility. We thoroughly review every client’s skin type and hair color to determine customized treatment settings before and during the treatment.

SAFETY : We use patented cooling devices for cooling the skin surface during treatments. That means more comfortable treatments and eliminates the need for topical anesthetics.

TRUTHFULLNESS : No False promises. We explain what works and what doesn’t. A pressure free environment where our first priority is educating you about your skin, our services, and the best options to achieve your goals.

CONFIDENTIALITY : Our laser providers and professional staff understand the intimate nature of laser hair removal and are accustomed to addressing our clients’ most private concerns. You can rest assured that anything discussed or treatments performed at Lumiere will remain discreet and confidential.

Laser hair removal offers a quick, safe and comfortable way to remove unwanted body hair. Unlike other hair removal procedures that focus on individual hairs, laser technology is able to quickly treat large areas of hair at once. Using the most advanced lasers available Lumiere’s professionals permanently reduce unwanted hair in a series of brief treatments.

Lumiere is especially pleased to offer an array of lasers to treat all skin types and ensure that you receive the safest, and most effective treatment. With a series of treatments designed for your skin and hair type, we can help permanently reduce unwanted hair on most areas of the body by disabling the hair follicles with light energy.

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking, waxing, and depilatory creams provide only temporary relief and can end up being very costly.

Although laser hair removal has been used for nearly a decade, within the last couple of years the technology has improved dramatically. Laser Hair Removal can now be performed quickly, safely, effectively and comfortably. You may see significant hair reduction of up to 85% to 90% after four treatments.

We offer an array of the latest, most effective and safest equipment, operated by a licensed practitioner specializing in laser hair removal.

At LUMIERE we feature multiple laser’s including the FDA approved Candela’s GentleLASE, GentleYAG and “GentleMax” lasers as well as Syneron’s Aurora.
