POST-TREATMENT ADVICE TO PATIENT

bullet Shortly after treatment areas will be tender, slightly red and swollen. This reaction usually disappears within a few hours.
 
bullet Blisters may occur in sensitive areas such as bikini line and neck areas. Oozing, crusting and scabbing are not common, but are possible. Contact your electrologist for treatment guidelines.

bullet Do not pick or remove scabs.

bullet In case of minor edema (swelling), apply ice packs 15 minutes on and off during the day. If swelling persists, notify your electrologist.

bullet Apply antibiotic cream or ointment (Polysporin, Neosporin, Bactroban, Fucidin, or Hydrocortisone) two to three times daily until healed. The area should heal in 5-7 days. We recommend antibiotic cream for the face.

bullet No make-up or moisturizers for 48 hours. Underarms - no deodorant for 48 hours.

bullet Avoid sun before, after and between treatments. Wear a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on treated area. A severe burn and/or scarring may result if you sunbathe or use a tanning bed on area after a treatment.

bullet You may shower the next day after laser treatments. The treated areas may be washed gently with a mild soap. The skin should be patted dry and not rubbed.

bullet NOTE: Stubble representing dead hair being shed will appear 4-5 days after treatment. It will shed from the hair follicle in about 15-20 days.

bullet Your second treatment is the most important treatment and should be done 4-6 weeks after your first treatment. It is important that your appointments are done on a regular schedule in order to catch the hair in the proper growth cycle.
