• A mild sunburn-like sensation is anticipated. This usually resolves within 2-3 hours of treatment but may persist for up to 2 days.

  • Appearance of “stubble” may appear in 1 to 3 weeks. This is not hair re-growth. It is the remnant of treated hairs being expelled from the IPL-damaged follicle. Allow this hair to fall out of the skin on its own or encourage with gentle exfoliation. Do not pluck or tweeze. You may shave during this period.

  • Application of chilled Aloe Vera gel or a cold compress every hour for 5 to10 minutes may be soothing to the skin. Continue until symptoms subside.

  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas. Apply a sun block with SPF 30 or greater daily to sun-exposed treated areas between treatments and for 4-6 weeks after last treatment.

  • Bathe or shower as usual. Treated areas may be temperature sensitive. Avoid use of extremely hot water, strongly scented lotions or soaps, prescription strength exfoliant creams, loofah sponges, and aggressive scrubbing to treated areas during healing phase.

  • Allow any blistered or open areas to heal spontaneously. If healing is delayed, a thin coating of antibiotic ointment may be advised. Do not pick at these areas. Picking may result in infection or scarring.

  • Allow any crusting to heal spontaneously, crusting will resolve in 3 to 14 days.

  • Best results are obtained on clients who have follow up treatment immediately after hair starts to grow. Your

  • clinician will advise you when you should schedule your next appointment. It is important to adhere to this regime.

  • Until redness has completely resolved, avoid all of the following:

  • No active cosmetics on treated areas (including AHA/BHA’s, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and physical exfoliants) 

  •  No swimming, especially in pools with chemical/chlorine

  •  No hot tubs and jacuzzis

  • No exercise or activities that cause excessive perspiration

  •  Avoid sun exposure to treated areas for 1 week post treatment

  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs as this will cause unwanted side effects
