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:

– No waxing, plucking, using a depilatory, undergoing electrolysis, treatment with harsh chemicals on skin, on the areas you wish to have treated 2 to 4 weeks prior to treatment; Shaving is fine

– The treatment area should be cleanly shaven. We recommend shaving the night before your treatment session.

– Do not wear make-up, lotion, oil, body oil,

or perfume on the day of treatment

– Do not wear jewelry while getting your treatment; we suggest you leave them at home

– Consult with your physician or healthcare practitioner; some medications may increase risk of bruising [ also, consult with your doctor about medication that cause photo sensitivity]

– No Accutane 6+ months prior to laser treatment

– History of herpes or cold sores may require an anti-viral prescription prior to treatment, consult with your physician or health care practitioner.
