All hair colors and all skin tones
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Water - Stay hydrated throughout the week. Moisture in the skin is needed for successful treatments.
Length of hair - Ensure that hair is long enough to be removed with tweezers during your treatment. Do not tweeze or wax the hair prior to or between treatments. You can shave or cut in between.
Avoid - Avoid stimulants such as coffee day of your appointment. This could make you more sensitive to pain.
AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT
Ice - Apply ice right after treatment if neccessary. It brings down redness and is soothing.
Do not touch- Avoid touching the treated area. Keep your skin clean by gently applying witch hazel.
Apply antibiotic cream - Apply Bacitracin, Polysporin, or any antibiotic cream cream to the treated area the night of your treatment. These medicines are designed to kill bacteria on your skin and prevent infections from cuts and burns. This will help your skin heal even faster, especially facial areas.
Make up - Makeup may be applied after treatment if desired. A fresh hypoallergenic formula is recommended.
Anti-aging products and other creams - Avoid using heavy creams, AHAs, and anti-aging products including retinoids and retinols for at least 48 hours after treatment.
Hot tubs - Avoid submerging the treated area in hot tubs, or river/lake swimming for 48 hours after treatment.
Sun exposure - DO NOT tan the area being treated for at least 48 hours after treatment. This can result in changes in pigmentation. Always use sunscreen!
Do not pick - Although it is uncommon, scabbing can sometimes occur. DO NOT pick these areas. Applying vaseline or an antibiotic ointment to the effected area will help speed the recovery.
Keep up with your regular schedule decided upon to achieve permanency.
It is typical to experience redness and/or swelling of the treated area for 2 to 3 hours. It can last up to 24 hours after treatment.
