IPL Hair Removal Tips



  • Shave the area to be treated 24 hours prior to arriving for your appointment. This does not apply to your first consultation as we will need to assess your skin and hair type to give an accurate recommendation.


  • Avoid waxing between treatments as the roots of your hair need to be present for the treatment to be successful. Shaving or trimming may be done between treatments. If you do decide to wax, you’ll need to wait 4-6 weeks before you have another treatment.
  • Do not bleach the hair in the lead up to any laser treatments, if the hair is bleached you will need to allow it to grow back to its usual colour.
  • Avoid using hair removal creams before your appointment.
  • Avoid getting a spray tan 2 weeks before your appointment as the machine settings will not recognise your new skin tone.


  • At a minimum, wear SPF 15+ lotion daily on treated areas that are exposed to sunlight. This helps prevent hyperpigmentation (skin discolouration) and skin sensitivity.
  • Apply a cooling gel to the treated area straight after treatment and over the next 3-5 days. Our BB Repair is an aloe vera gel that has bene specially formulated to remove heat from the skin and restore hydration.
  • Be patient. Your hair growth pattern means that you may not see any results after your first 3 sessions.
  • A week after your laser hair removal treatment, it is recommended you exfoliate the area every few days with BB Body Scrub or an exfoliating mitt to help avoid bumps and ingrown hairs and to help the hair shed from the area.
  • Maintain hair growth if necessary through shaving or clippering


  • Don’t expose the treated area to direct sun for a minimum of 2 weeks after your hair removal treatment.
  • Avoid heavy exercise, saunas, spas, pools and any activities that generate body heat for 48 hours after your treatment.
  • Don’t exfoliate the treated area for 3-4 days after your treatment
  • Don’t wear deodorant, make-up or perfume for 24 hours if you have had your face or underarms treated
