Before:

  • Use sunscreen and physical sun protection.
  • Avoid extended sun exposure, i.e. beach, travel to sunny locations, sunbathing, sports outdoors.
  • Inform our staff if any physician has ordered Accutane for you in the last 6 months.
  • Inform our staff of any medical conditions or medications you are taking that might sensitize you to light, affect wound healing or affect coagulation.
  • Shave the treatment area 0-24 hours prior to procedure.
  • No waxing or plucking for 4 weeks prior to procedure.
  • Your practitioner will discuss recommended number of treatments to achieve desired results.
  • Arrive with clean, dry skin. Avoid creams and products

After:

  • You may experience some redness in the treatment area that should resolve within a few hours.
  • Treated hairs can take up to 7-14 days to exfoliate from the follicle and may appear to be “growing” during this time.
  • Follow our aftercare plan for one week after the treatment.
  • Schedule your followup treatments 4-8 weeks apart. Timing is crucial for success based on the hair’s growth cycle. 5-7 or more treatments may be required to gain desired results.

MOISTURIZER:

Moisturizer should be applied generously with clean hands over treated area and reapplied
whenever your skin feels dry.

SUNSCREEN:

Sunscreen is a MUST and should be used daily beginning the day of treatment and used
consistently. Use sunscreen with Broadband UVA and UVB protection and a SPF of at least 30. Ensure to reapply during sun exposure. DO NOT expose your skin to direct sun exposure for 14 days. The treated area is more prone to sunburn and pigmentation change.
