  • Immediately after treatment, there may be redness and swelling at the treatment area, this may feel like mild sunburn. 
  • The application of iced water during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort. 
  • The application of aloe vera gel can continue at home. 
  • Makeup may be used immediately after the treatment unless there is epidermal blistering. 
  • Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. Use sunscreen SPF 30 or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment. 
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. Do not use any other hair removal treatment methods (waxing, electrolysis or tweezing) that will disturb the hair follicle at the treatment area for 4-6 weeks after treatment.  Shaving or depilatories may be used.  
  • Hair regrowth occurs at different rates on different areas of the body.  New hair growth will not occur for AT LEAST three weeks after treatment. 
  • Anywhere from 5-19 days after the treatment, shedding of the surface hair may occur and this appears as new hair growth. This is NOT new hair growth. You can clean and remove the hair by washing or wiping the area with a wet cloth or Loofa sponge. 
  • After the underarms are treated, use a powder, instead of deodorant, for 24 hours after the treatment to reduce skin irritation.#
  • Avoid hot baths and heat treatments and treat the skin gently, as if you had sunburn, for the first 24 hours. 
  • Any questions or concerns that you may have then please call us for advice.
