Men can prepare for hair removal in several ways. First, it’s important to shave the day of or the day before treatment.
Additionally, avoid tanning (through sun exposure, tanning beds, or artificial tanners) at least 4 weeks before and after. Waxing should also be avoided for 4-6 weeks prior to laser hair removal, as hair follicles must be intact for the procedure to work.
Finally, while guys can resume all normal activities post laser hair removal, they should forgo exercise for 24-48 hours, to limit the chance of swelling or inflammation to the treated area.
