Can you have caffeine before laser hair removal?
While caffeine itself may not reduce the impact of the laser treatment, it can have some indirect downfalls like increased anxiety, sensitive skin and more. Most medical professionals suggest avoiding caffeine for several hours before your laser hair removal treatment as a result.
How should I prepare for laser hair removal treatment?
The day before your laser hair removal treatment, shave with a brand-new, clean razor. If you’re feeling even slightly nervous about your treatment, it’s best to avoid coffee and all other forms of caffeine for 24 hours beforehand. Caffeine heightens anxiety and having the jitters will make the laser hair removal technician’s job even harder.
Can I drink alcohol before my laser hair removal appointment?
Avoid drinking alcohol 24 hours before your laser hair removal appointment. If it’s your first session, relax–you’re in the hands of a professional, and getting rid that unwanted hair in your underarms and bikini area is virtually just a zap away!

Avoid anything that involves chlorine (e.g. swimming) for 48 hours. Avoid make-up on the treated area for at least 48 hours.
