Pre-Treatment Preparation

  1. The treatment area needs to be shaved. You must avoid waxing, threading, plucking, or the use of chemical hair removal products 4 weeks prior to treatment.
  2. Prior to treatment, make sure area is cleaned, leaving no residue of makeup, lotion, or topical anesthetic.
  3. Be sure to stop any oral medications that are photosensitive such as antibiotics, Accutane, etc. If the face is the area being treated, make sure to discontinue all active topical creams such as Retin-A, hydroquinone, etc. If you are not sure about a certain medication or topical you are using, please give us a call prior to your treatment.
  4. Avoid sun exposure! We want to be able to treat the area on the strongest setting for your skin to achieve the best result. Performing laser hair removal on tanned skin is unsafe due to the fact that it can result in a burn. So commit to your hair removal treatment plan and wear sunscreen!

Post Treatment Care

  1. Do not shave the treated area for several days after your treatment.
  2. After receiving your treatment, wash gently only using tepid water.
  3. No sun exposure, as hyper pigmentation can occur.
  4. It is normal for some irritation to occur. Application of ice or hydrocortisone can provide relief.
  5. Discontinue all other hair removal methods during your treatment plan.
