PRE & POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS

HAIR REMOVAL

  • A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2- 24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, but it usually resolves in 2-3 days.

  • Apply ice or gel packs to the treatment area for 10-15 minutes every hour for the next four hours, as needed. An oral, non- steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine, such as acetaminophen, may be taken to reduce discomfort. Use such medicine according to manufactures, recommendations.

  • Until redness has resolved, it is recommended to avoid the following:

  • Applying cosmetics to treated areas

  • Swimming, especially in pools with chemicals.

  • Hot tubs, Jacuzzis, and saunas.

  • Activities that cause excessive perspiration

  • Sun exposure or tanning to treated areas. Apply a SPF 45 or greater sunscreen to prevent skin color changes.

  • Bathe or shower as usual.

  • Appearance of hair growth or stubble will continue for 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but treated hairs being expelled from the skin.

  • Hairs that were in the resting phase (telagen) at the time of treatment may enter the active growing phase (anagen) in 1-6 months, depending on the body area. Follow-up treatment may be needed.
