Thank you for choosing Viso Bello. In our ongoing efforts to provide you with the best possible service, we ask that you carefully review these laser hair removal pre-treatment instructions and ask any questions necessary to help you fully understand it. If you have any questions about these instructions, please discuss them with us prior to treatment. To obtain maximum benefit from your laser treatments, it is crucial that you understand and adhere to these instructions. Failure to comply with these instructions may affect your treatment outcome and increase the likelihood or severity of complications. We are confident that if you follow these instructions, you will be pleased with the results of your treatments.

Please follow all guidelines set forth in the laser consent form: Discuss your medical history, medications, allergies, skin typing and any tendency for scarring or poor healing with your laser treatment provider. Pay particular attention to the limitations and cautions sections.
