How long should you stop removing the hair you want lasered before an appointment for GentleLase?

Author: Dr. Bobby Buka

We recommend removing the hair the night before coming in for an appointment for GentleLase hair removal. The reason being, is that we want to target the follicular bulb which is underneath the surface of the skin. By shaving or otherwise removing hair on the surface, we make sure that the laser is not distracted by any surface hair, but rather focuses on the hair bulbs or hair papilla at the base of the hair follicle.
