WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
The first step is a consultation with the specialist at Clinic Lémanic with whom you will discuss what you would like to have done and ask any questions you may have. The specialist will prepare a treatment plan for you based on what you’re looking for, your skin type, and the location of unwanted hair. At Clinic Lémanic, we strongly recommend you schedule all the appointments for your treatment plan at the first consultation. You will get far better results if you stick to regular hair removal appointments matching the growth cycles of your hair.
2 Before treatment
Do not epilate at all for 3 weeks before your first session, no waxing or tweezing. You may however shave or trim your hair. You are encouraged to shave your hair a few days prior to treatment as this improves the effectiveness of the treatment.
At every laser treatment session, you will be given protective eyewear. You will then relax for a comfortable and safe session of epilation at the hands of an experienced professional. Depending on the treatment area, a session may last between thirty minutes and an hour and a half. Although the procedure is only slightly uncomfortable, you are welcome to ask for some anaesthetic cream to be applied beforehand. We recommend using anaesthetic cream for permanent hair removal treatments on the face or bikini area, both of which can be sensitive. The treatment area can also be cooled down to improve comfort
4 Post treatment
Slight redness may appear shortly after the laser is applied to the treatment area. This will disappear within 24 hours. It is very important not to expose the epilated area to sunlight for at least one week. You will notice your hair becoming finer and thinner and you will find your skin smooth and soft to the touch.
