    Congrats, you’re on your way to be hair-free {in whatever spot you choose, that is}.

    Pre-Appointment

    Numbing Cream

    First things first: when making your first appointment, make sure to request 30 minutes beforehand to take the office up on its numbing cream and ice. This is crucial, especially for ultra sensitive and potentially NSFW spots, like the Brazilian, etc. Trust — IT’S WORTH IT {having done with and without cream}, but really the first time is the worst of the “pain” {put in quotes because it really feels like a hot rubber band snap and isn’t thaaat bad}.

    Sun Damage

    Also, make sure that you haven’t had or are going to have sun damage in the spot that you’re lasering. This precaution is to avoid scarring, so don’t play; you’ve waited this long as a wooly mammoth, a few more weeks won’t hurt to make sure you’re not going to bake in the sun immediately following or before your treatment.

    Shaving

    Before you head to Schweiger, make sure to be cleanly shaved in whatever area you’re lasering. Spoiler Alert: If you forget to, just know that they may dry shave you because the hair needs to be at the follicle before lasering.

    Your Skin Consult

    It’s important to get the results wanted, to DEF make an appointment to see if you are a good candidate for laser. Some skin tones are not as easily lasered, so it’s best to check with Schweiger to see before committing to sessions.

    During the Treatment

    Just like if you were at the docs {which you are, technically}, you’ll have to strip down the spot being lasered. Not to fret, though: There are paper robes, but might we suggest wearing a sports bra or something comfy so it’s easy for applying the numbing cream. Definitely don’t wear anything you care about since there’s a chance the numbing cream and laser cream may not be 100% wiped off after the treatment.

    The actual treatment part is the fastest thing ever. LEGIT takes about 20 seconds {depending on where you’re getting it done}. Yes, it’s hot and not 100% painless, but pain is beauty hunny, and it’s just what is necessary to be hair-free should you desire. There, we said it. But with the numbing cream and fun chats with Nicole Tardio, PA-C, and her team, you’ll be in and out in no time.

    After the Treatment

    Some steroid cream is given so that it can be applied to the treatment areas to avoid any break outs, etc. Wear sunblock religiously so you don’t have to worry about any sun damage {it will actually be affected by the sun, so STAY OUT OF IT!}.

    The Results

    Nicole and her team know their stuff. Within just two treatments, hair was SO much lighter {especially with underarms!}, and shaving was at a minimum. To complete the treatment, Schweiger recommends at least 6 treatments 4 weeks apart. “You must really be committed to it, or else it won’t work. Timing matters,” Nicole shared with us. If you listen to her, you’ll be happy {and hair-free, promise!}.
