Remember, exfoliation should be avoided after treatment as this can irritate sensitive skin.
Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools for 2 days following treatment. The pores of the skin are more open and there is a greater chance of bacterial infection. Salt water pools and tubs are okay.
Skin Spotting: Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours, or even a day or so in some cases. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is just a histamine reaction, It is an indication that the hairs have been removed from the follicle and it is quite normal after a treatment. They will disappear.
Sensitive Skin: To take away the sting and to reduce redness, apply an ice cold compress two to three times for about 2-3 minutes at a time.
Do not use perfumed soap or products with chemical irritants on treated area within 24 hours of your treatment.
Face: To quickly reduce any redness to the area, wrap an ice cube in a wet cloth and apply it to the treated area 5 or 6 times at one hour intervals. You may develop some whiteheads in this area but they seldom appear with subsequent treatments.
Was it Painful?: If you have been shaving, the first treatment is the worst, due to the fact that the bulb at the base of the hair shaft is enlarged. The more treatments you receive, the weaker the roots get and the easier it is to remove the hair. Due to the way hair grows, it will take a few months to replace the shaven hair with a natural hair growth.
Beware of Sun Exposure: After your treatment, your skin may sunburn more easily. Avoid exposing your skin to the sun and any infra-red lamp or solarium for a minimum of two days. You should not receive a treatment if your skin is sunburned.
In-grown Hairs:. Exfoliate for a few more minutes. Be sure to re-hydrate your skin afterwards with body lotion. Ask your technician for suggestions to suit your personal requirements.
Diminishing Hair Growth: Depending on how dense the hair growth is on each individual, it ranges from 18 months for people with light hair growth to 3 years or more for people with heavy growth. Since the best age to start is at puberty, we encourage you to influence young girls to start using sugar paste instead of shaving. Diminishment of hair growth is a gradual process achieved by regular treatments over a period of time. To obtain the best results, we recommend that you establish a routine suitable to your hair growth.
