If needed, apply 1% hydrocortisone cream to the treated area every 12-hours for the first 48-hours after treatment if instructed by personnel. Moisturize with Aloe Vera gel or light fragrance-free moisturizer, after the first 48 hours.

Avoid using skin irritants

Avoid using skin irritants, Retin-A, Benzyl Peroxide, Glycolic Acid, and astringents on the treated areas. Avoid deodorant for 48 hours if the underarm area was treated.

refrain from shaving

Refrain from shaving or plucking treated area. Waxing and plucking may delay future treatment(s). It will take longer for the hair to reappear.

Wear protective clothing

Avoid exposure to the sun. Wear protective clothing and use sun block SPF 30 or higher, daily throughout the treatment process [5-8 months]. A good sun block will contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide and will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Tanning after treatment may cause hyper-pigmentation.

A Few More Things We Need to Know
Any changes to your medical history

New diagnosis? New pregnancy? New medications? We need to know. Please tell us, as some medical conditions and medications are not compatible with laser treatments. It may be necessary to reschedule your appointment, as your health and safety are always our top priority!

If you get cold sores
If you have a history of HSV-1, we recommend you take an antiviral medication starting 24-48 hours before your treatment to prevent an outbreak, and continuing for three to five days after. Contact your primary care provider if you need prescription medication.
