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.


  • Wax between treatment 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.


  • 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 been 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.


  • Expose the treated area to direct sun for a minimum of 2 weeks after your hair removal treatment.
