My question is about taking a pain reliever before laser hair removal. My usual pain reliever of choice is Advil (ibuprofen). But i read that because ibuprofen or aspirin thins your blood, taking these before laser hair removal can cause red spots where the hair was removed.
Is there any truth to this? What do you all take (if anything) as a painkiller before a laser hair removal session?
The cuts and scratches from shaving all summer convinced me to take care of getting my legs lasered… (I have had great results with my underarms, by the way). I have an appointment for the lower legs tomorrow and am excited!
Many thanks, in advance.
