Shaving Before Laser Hair
It is essential to shave the skin before laser hair removal. Otherwise, the laser will just singe the hair and not burn the "root" of the hair and your removal will not be permanent. You don't have to worry about a permanent "shadow". Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
