Thanks for your query.
Normal surgical masks can filter the laser fumes .thereby you can just get one and use it during your procedure. Hope it helps.

Laser Plume Mask is not required for LHR

Generally speaking, we do not recommend having the patient or provider wear a laser plume mask during Laser Hair Removal treatments.  We only use laser plume masks during ablative treatments on the skin, especially wart removal.
