Post-Treatment Skin Care Instructions

Immediately following treatment, the area may show redness with some swelling. This usually resolves in 1 to 2 hours, but may persist for 1 to 2 days. If this occurs, apply a cold compress for ten minutes every 1 to 2 hours. Discomfort or stinging may be relieved with a acetaminophen, (e.g. Tylenol). Follow instructions for laser hair removal for women and men.

During the Next 24 Hours:

• Do not take a hot bath
• Do not put make-up on if you had the hair removal on the face
• Wear comfortable clothes you can move properly in and that won’t irritate the treated area.
• Use a hydrating product within 24 hours (though not a product that is new for you).

During the Next 48 Hours:

• Do not go into a swimming pool or spa or do other activities that may put you in contact with irritating substances such as chlorine.
• If the feeling of heat persists, apply a cold compress.
• Do not scratch the surface, you may cause infection. To avoid scratching, apply a antibiotic ointment such as Polysporin.

If a Crust or Blistering Develops:

• In the case of crusting or blistering, avoid make-up until the skin has healed completely and do not shave the area. If make-up is used. It must be applied and removed delicately.
• Apply Plysporin, Bactroban or Fucidin ointment to keep the area moist and help healing. Apply until  hair removal side effects resolve.
