Pre - and Aftercare - Laser Therapy
Pre treatment Care
It is important to stay out of the sun or use sunscreen for exposure you can not avoid. Tanned skin makes targeting the melanin in hair follicles difficult and more energy is absorbed by the skin. You also 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 weeks prior to 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.
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 showers 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 screen with protection factor 30+).
