Laser Hair Removal Preparation

How do I prepare for my MèCHE Laser Hair Removal treatment?


Day of treatment

Area to be treated to be clean and free from any skin/cosmetic products.

Do not use any face or body products containing glitter or shimmer.

Avoid deodorant on morning of treatment if getting underarms treated.


Day before treatment

Shave the area to be treated thoroughly 12-24 hours prior to treatment.

Unshaven clients will need to be rescheduled.


One week before treatment

Avoid using active skincare products (AHAS/BHAS, Retin A etc) on the area one week prior to treatment.

Avoid face or body scrubs one week prior to treatment.

Any antibiotics must be finished one week prior to treatment.


Two weeks before treatment

Avoid skin chemical peels on the area to be treated.

No self tanning or spray tanning within two weeks of treatment.

Tanned skin may absorb some of the laser energy which could affect your hair removal results and damage the skin.

Avoid botox or skin fillers within two weeks of treatment.


Four weeks before treatment

No waxing, tweezing, threading, epilating or depilatory creams for four weeks prior to treatment and throughout the course of your treatments.

No bleaching your hair on the treatment area for four weeks prior, you will need to allow the normal colour to regrow before treatment.

No sun exposure or tanning for four weeks before treatment and throughout your course.

You must be always using a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 at all times on the treatment area.
