Do not tan your skin or self tan for 2 weeks before your appointment. Do not use any products containing Salicylic Acid or Hydrogen Peroxide 24 hours before your appointment as it might make your skin more sensitive to light. If you take medication please consult your physician to make sure your medicines will not cause photosensitivity. Remember do not stop taking any of your medications without the advice of a medical physician. Lastly, you should shave the day of your appointment. Laser hair treatment requires hair to be shaved as close as possible to maximize laser accuracy and results.
It is normal to have some minor swelling after treatment. The swelling will subside the day of your appointment several hours later. We encourage you to wear sunblock for 2 weeks after your treatment. Don't exfoliate your skin 2 days following your treatment. Remember you want to take care of your skin so baby it especially after treatment. Any remaining hair will shed out on its own within 7 - 14 days.
