LASER HAIR REMOVAL: No waxing, tweezing, coloring or depilatories on the treatment area during the entire course of your treatments. Shaving or clipping is permitted as often as desired.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL:Â Shave the treatment area one day before your scheduled treatment with a brand new razor unless instructed otherwise. This is important to prevent treating an area with recent chafing or irritation or infection due to using a previously used razor which may contain bacteria.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL:Â Do not use the following items on the treatment areas 2-3 days before and 2-3 days after treatment: creams and cleanser containing salicylic acid and/ or glycolic acids, or retinoids (Retin-A). Also avoid chemical peels and bleaching creams 3 days before and 3 days after treatment or until all pinkness has subsided. You may exfoliate the night prior to your treatment.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL:Â The hairs that are destroyed from the treatment will gradually work themselves out. This process can take up to 3-4 weeks. Do not pick, rub or scratch the treated areas.
No direct sunbathing during mid-day (between 10:00 am â€“ 3:00 pm), tanning booths, or use of self-tanner for four (2) weeks prior to treatment and one (1) week after your treatment. It is highly recommended that you abstain from sun exposure during the course of treatments.
Do not apply any creams, lotions or deodorant on the area to be treated prior to treatment.
Using Sun Block with SPF 50 or higher is essential during the course of treatments.
After treatment, the area may feel similar to mild sunburn. A cool compress may be applied along with a hydrating cream or aloe gel (alcohol-free) 3-4 times a day until resolved.
Mild soap and tepid water may be used to wash treatment areas. Hot water should not be applied to freshly treated areas or until pinkness has subsided.
Avoid saunas, hot tubs and exercising for 24 hours after your treatment.
Although rare, a blister may appear. You must contact the clinic to arrange for an evaluation.
If you must cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact the clinic at least 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, a cancellation fee shall be applied. This is due to the high demand for treatment time.
