Before & After Care

Before Your Appointment

  • Since good hygiene is an important part of your treatment preparation you should be showered and clean before you arrive if you are having treatment done on the body.
  • For work around the hairline or nape area, hair should be washed.
  • Clean skin reduces the risk of irritation, so lotions, oils, deodorants and or make-up should be avoided on the areas to be treated.
  • Wear freshly laundered bikini or brief underwear for a bikini line treatment.
  • Do not apply deodorant or antiperspirant before having work done on the armpits.
  • Try to avoid the stress of rushing to keep your appointment. Feeling pressured to be prompt can stimulate adrenalin and make you tense and nervous. Arrive early enough to allow yourself to relax for a few minutes before your appointment.
  • Avoid ingesting caffeine or other stimulants on the day of your appointment.
  • It is important to be well hydrated for your treatment, so try to drink an adequate amount of water for a day or two prior to your appointment.
  • You may want to take your favorite pain reliever on hour before your appointmen

After Your Appointment

  • It is normal for the treated area to be red and slightly swollen. Both of these conditions usually disappear in an hour or two, but can last longer.
  • If swelling or redness occurs apply an ice pack to the treated area. You may Apply Aloe Vera gel or medicated greaseless creams especially formulated for burns.
  • Do not touch, pick, rub, scratch, or squeeze the treated area.
  • Keep the treated area clean and dry; do not use abrasive material to cleanse treated area. Avoid the use of ointments or creams for at least 24 hours after treatment.
  • Do not apply make up to the treatment area for at least 24 hours. If you must wear make up only use fresh make up, do not use-soiled powder puffs.
  • Do not use deodorant or antiperspirant for 24 hours after work on the underarm.
  • If work was done on face, neck, or hairline put a new pillowcase on your pillow.
  • If, after treatment, a tiny formation of fluid resembling a milia or whitehead is noted, do not squeeze. Apply a dab of calamine lotion to the area. This reaction is normal and the fluid will dry up.
  • If pustules appear, periodically apply hydrogen peroxide to the treated area. You may use an antibacterial cream or ointment such as Bacitracin or other similar products.
  • Occasionally a tiny scab may appear a few days following treatment. This is also normal. DO NOT remove this scab. It will heal from underneath and will come off by itself.
  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at east two days. If you must be out in the sun wear sun block of at least SPF #30.
