Before & After Care


Before Treatment

  1. Drink Lots of Water.  The day before and the day of treatment.  Water acts as a conductor within your tissue and makes the process much smoother.
  2. Avoid caffine, chocolate, and sugar the day of your treatment.
  3. No make-up, if having work on your face.
  4. No deodorant, if working on underarms.
  5. Hygiene is extremely important!  Please shower before your treatment, especially if having work done in private areas.
  6. WOMEN: The week of before and during your menstrual cycle will cause more sensitivity.
  7. Numbing cream may be applied 45 minuted prior to your appointment time, if desired.  Apply a thick layer and cover with plastic wrap until your appointment time for maximum benefit. 
  8. You may take your favorite pain reliever 30 minutes prior to treament, if desired.

After Treatment

  1. Continue to drink plenty of water!
  2. Do NOT touch the treated area.  This could cause white heads or an infection.
  3. For swelling or redness, appy cold compress.
  4. For scabs, apply Neosporin or Aloe Vera until healed.  Do NOT pick at them, as this could cause permanent scarring.
  5. Generously apply sunscren or avoid the sun as much as possible.  Side effects may be hyperpigmentation.
  6. Avoid sweating.
  7. Do NOT tweeze or wax in between treatments.  Shaving, cutting or depilatory creams or fine.
  8. Lastly, regrowth is normal.  Some follicles need more than one treatment, especially if they have been tweezed or waxed for many years.  They will eventually be eliminated and your skin will be hair free.
