LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Immediately after your treatment, redness & bumps at the treatment area are common; these may last up to 2 hours or longer. It is normal for the treated area to feel like a sunburn for a few hours. You should use a cold compress if the sensitivity continues. If there is any crusting, apply an antibiotic cream (ie: Neosporin or Bacitracin). Darker pigmented skin may have more discomfort than lighter skin and may persist longer.
The treated area may be washed gently with a mild soap. Skin should be patted dry & not rubbed during the first 48 hours.
Keep the treated area clean and dry, if further redness or irritation persists, skip your makeup & moisturizer, & deodorant (for underarms) until the irritation has subsided.
Stubble, representing dead hair being shed from the hair follicle, will appear within 5-30 days from the treatment date. that is normal & they will fall out quickly.
Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots for at least 2 months. Use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) at all times throughout the treatment period, and for up to 1-2 months following.
Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. Do not use any other hair removal methods or products, other than shaving, on the treated area during the course of your laser treatments, as it will prevent you from achieving the best possible results.
