Laser Hair Removal
For clients wanting to get laser hair removal on their face, it is important that there are no active acne breakouts. The active skin conditions like acne, must be treated prior to receiving laser hair removal. This will ensure that the condition is not further irritated.
How many treatments will I need?
Each area of the body may require more or less treatments. For areas such as the back, some may require anywhere from 8-12 treatments, again this varies from person to person and someone might require more treatments than others.
How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
Treatments should be repeated every 4 – 6 weeks. The goal is to treat the hair during its “active” phase. Laser hair removal may help with ingrown hairs.
How will my skin feel after Laser Hair Removal treatment?
Depending on the area treated, you might feel tender spots, but you should not feel any discomfort. Some redness and very mild inflammation can occur after treatment, this is normal. However, If you feel burning, itching or extremely swelling, please seek medical attention.
Avoid Exercise for 24-48 hours – Exercising post treatment can inflame the follicle and lead to an infection or an adverse reaction.
Avoid sun exposure – It is recommended to avoid tanning or tanning beds for 1-2 week post treatment.
Avoid taking extreme hot showers 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid applying makeup, unless it is mineral makeup.
Avoid skincare products that contain strong active ingredients at least 3-5 days. (ie Retionals)
Avoid applying deodorant immediately after treatment. It is recommended that you wait at least 24 hours. In cases where you cannot skip deodorant, wait at least 2-3 hours before applying. We recommend a natural deodorant without strong fragrance or aluminum.
Avoid applying any products such as creams and lotions. This can result in irritation such as: blisters and topical rash.
