Please be kind to your skin, avoid harsh products, that may have adverse reactions, for the next 24 – 48 hours after your treatment.
Remember, exfoliation should be avoided after treatment as this can irritate sensitive skin.
Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools following treatment. The pores of the skin are more open and there is a greater chance of bacterial infection.
Skin Spotting: Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours, or even a day or so in some cases. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is just an indication that the hairs have been removed from the follicle and it is quite normal after a treatment. They will disappear.
Sensitive Skin: To take away the sting and to reduce redness, apply an ice cold compress two to three times for about 2-3 minutes at a time.
Do not use perfumed soap or products with chemical irritants on treated area within 24 hours of your treatment.
Face: To quickly reduce any redness to the area, wrap an ice cube in a wet cloth and apply it to the treated area 5 or 6 times at one hour intervals. You may develop some whiteheads in this area but they seldom appear with subsequent treatments.
Was it Painful?: If you have been shaving, the first treatment is the worst, due to the fact that the bulb at the base of the hair shaft is enlarged. The more treatments you receive, the weaker the roots get and the easier it is to remove the hair. Due to the way hair grows, it will take a few months to replace the shaven hair with a natural hair growth.
Beware of Sun Exposure: After your treatment, your skin may sunburn more easily. Avoid exposing your skin to the sun and any infra-red lamp or solarium for a minimum 24 hours. You should not receive a treatment if your skin is sunburned.
