♥ Post Treatment Care — Hair Reduction


  1. Aerobic exercise and excessive sweating should be avoided for 24 hours.

  2. Do not pick, scratch, rub or cause excessive friction to the treatment area.

  3. Hot baths are not advised for 24 hours (quick showers are recommended).

  4. If the skin is broken or a blister appears ice the area and notify the clinic.

  5. Cold packs, aloe vera gel or any other cooling preparation may be used to ease a temporary discomfort.

  6. Excessive sun exposure is to be avoided for at least 1-3 weeks before and after treatment. Sun block should be applied to protect the skin. If further treatments are required, a commitment to stay out of the sun is necessary to avoid minor complications that may occur.

  7. Makeup can be applied as long as the skin is not ruptured. Avoid rubbing the skin during removal and pat dry.

  8. Mild redness, tenderness, warmth and temporary swelling of the follicle are normal reactions and may last for 24-48 hours after the treatments. Treat your skin gently to avoid complications.

  9. If there is a tendency to experience ingrown hairs, exfoliate the skin at the 2 and 6 week mark to assist in the shedding of already treated follicle.

  10. Post treatment, shedding of the hair treated will occur at 2-2 1/2 weeks. There will be a delayed growth until the new cycle of hair regrows either at the 4 or 6 week mark.

  11. The number of sessions required vary between each individual depending of hair candidacy, density and consistency of appointments. Keeping appointments within the specified time frames are critical to the long-term success of the treatment.
