Preparing for Laser Hair Removal

Upon booking your consultation at Oasis Wellbeing Clinic you will receive an email asking you to complete some basic forms:

The Consultation Medical form: to ensure you are suitable for laser treatments, or may highlight any potential contraindications to treatment that need further discussion.

Consent form: which explains how treatments work, what to expect during treatment, potential risks of treatments, and expected results. Included in the consent for is the Pre/post treatment care information: which outline best practices before and after your laser treatment to ensure the best possible results and to minimise the risk of side effects or complications.

Upon your first visit to Oasis Wellbeing Clinic you will have a consultation with an expert laser technician. During this visit, we discuss your goals, assess your eligibility, and you have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the procedure.

Once the consultation, paperwork, and questions have been addressed, and if you would like to proceed with treatment, a small test patch is (also known as a patch test) is administered. This is a small and controlled laser exposure, on a small area of the skin. This is essential before a full treatment session to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the procedure.

It allows the technician to see how your skin reacts to the laser, to determine the appropriate energy settings for your unique skin and hair type, and to check for any adverse reactions or sensitivity. It helps tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs and allows both you and the technician to make informed decisions about proceeding with the full treatment.

Suitability for laser treatments

Laser Treatments are not suitable for clients

  • with an active sun tan
  • with artificial tanning agents on the skin
  • who use aromatherapy products
  • taking photosensitizing drugs
  • who are pregnant
  • with skin diseases or disorders
  • who suffer from keloid scarring
  • who have epilepsy
  • with active herpes
  • with tattoos in the area
  • who have cancer

Remember that everyone’s skin and hair are unique, and what works well for one person may not be suitable for another. The test patch is a valuable step in the process to ensure that the laser hair removal treatment is both safe and customised for your individual characteristics.

Immediately following your test patch, you and the technician will observe the treated area to ensure the correct and effective settings have been administered, and watch for any immediate reactions or side effects. This assessment helps determine the suitability of the chosen laser settings and if any adjustments are needed.

Providing there are no adverse effects in the 24 hours following your test patch then you are able to receive your first full treatment.
