Pre- and Aftercare - Skin Treatments
Pre treatment Care
Please cease use of any skin care product containing retinol (topical Vitamin A) three days before treatment.
It is important to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen for exposure you can not avoid because tanned skin makes targeting the melanin in hair follicles difficult and more energy is absorbed in the tanned skin. Also you need to avoid all self-tanning methods. Tanned skin has a higher risk of pigmentation changes after laser treatment.
Do not pluck, wax or bleach the hair for one month before your appointment. Avoid chemical peels, micro needling and laser treatment of the area for 4 wks prior your appointment.
Avoid applying topical creams and moisturisers as well as perfumes to the area being treated before your appointment.
Shave the area 12-24 hours before your treatment.
Please inform us if you are breastfeeding, pregnant or sunburnt.
Post treatment Care
There may be some mild heat and redness in areas that have been treated.
Avoid shaving, waxing or plucking hair, exfoliation, excessive sweating, swimming or saunas, very hot shower and tight restrictive clothing for 24 hours after treatment.
We recommend to avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight after your treatment and always use sun protection for at least one week after treatment (sun block with a protection factor 30+).
