In order to get optimal results from your laser treatment and minimize the chance of incomplete healing and complications, we strongly recommend the following instructions:

– Some redness and swelling around the

treated area is normal after treatment and may feel similar to a sunburn. This should resolve within several hours to several days after treatment.

– Applying ice packs or cool compresses will help with any discomfort.

– No exercising or working out for a minimum 12 hours until the redness has subsided.

– No saunas, hot tubs, or hot showers for a minimum 12 hours until the redness has subsided.

– No irritants (glycolics, acids, retinoids, etc.) for 7 days after treatment.

– No real suntan or use solariums for the entire duration of course of treatments and for 1 month after the final treatment.

– No plucking, waxing, using a depilatory or undergo electrolysis in between treatments. If needed, the only other acceptable hair removal method is shaving.

– Apply sunscreen daily. It should be at least SPF 30 protects UVA/UVB and contains the physical blockers zinc oxide and titanium oxide.
