PRE & POST CARE FOR LASER HAIR REDUCTION

PRE:

  • Avoid the sun for 4-6 weeks before and after the treatment

  • Avoid electrolysis, tweezing, threading, bleaching and/or waxing for 6 weeks prior to treatment

  • If you have a history of herpes, prophylactic antiviral therapy must be started the day before treatment and continued one week after treatment.

  • The use of tanning creams, tanning beds, or bronzers must be discontinued before and during treatments.

  • May not have treatments until 2 weeks after final dose of any Antibiotics or Sun Sensitive Medications.

POST:

  • Immediately after treatment there may be erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) at the treatment site. This usually lasts 2 hours or longer. The erythema may last up to 10 days. The treatment area may feel like a sunburn for a few hours after the treatment, but it will subside. Apply ice as needed.

  • Post Laser Lotion may be used for 3 – 5 days post treatment.

  • No heat, such as saunas, steam rooms, Jacuzzis, extremely hot showers, or strenuous activities. No prolonged heat for a minimum of 48 hours post treatment.

  • Avoid sun exposure to avoid hypo-pigmentation and hyper-pigmentation.

  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated areas. Please do not use any hair removal products or similar treatments (i.e. electrolysis, tweezing, and/or waxing). Those will disturb the hair follicle. Shaving is permitted.

  • Up to 2 weeks post treatment you will notice shedding of the treated hair. This is not new growth. You can clean and remove the hair by washing or wiping the area with a wet cloth.

  • Treat your skin gently for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
