Saving you time and money in the long run
You will notice hair reduction from each and every session however an average of 10 sessions every 5-8 weeks per area are needed.
The amount of sessions needed varies from person to person depending on age and area treated.
Stop waxing, tweezing, or plucking hair you want to remove for two to six weeks before your appointment, though shaving is fine.
Within 24 hours of your appointment, shave the area that’s being lasered.
You should also avoid UV exposure during the month before your treatment, including that from tanning beds and self-tanning lotions.
Be sure that the treatment area is fully washed and has no makeup, lotions or medications on.
Notify us if you’ve been on any recent antibiotics or if there have been any changes with your medications. We do not treat anyone who has been on Accutane at present or the past 12 months.
Avoid bathing or washing with very hot water, Use tepid water. Wash gently. Keep the area clean.
Avoid any irritating medications or chemicals. Examples of these are Retin-A, Benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or astringents.
Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 weeks after treatment. Protect the area with a sunscreen of higher than 30 SPF or else the skin may develop hyper-pigmentation/hypo-pigmentation marks.
After laser treatment, hair may continue to grow out as if it were never treated. Typically this will occur for about 2-3 weeks and then those treated hair will simply begin to fall out.
