You want the hair shafts,which are the target for the laser energy, to be present. If you do waxing, the laser energy won’t be absorbed in the best area and the follicle would have a better chance surviving. It is best not to wax for two to four weeks prior to laser hair removal depending on the rate of your hair growth. You would like to see the hair just starting to point out of the epidermis as it grows back to have effective treatment.
