Hair Removal

What Preparations are necessary before treatment?

We recommend that you stay out of the sun–a recent suntan or sunburn can sensitize the area and can adversely affect treatment effectiveness. It’s recommended that you don’t engage in active tanning for three weeks prior to treatment.

The area to be treated must be shaved free of all hair. Also, treatment area should be absolutely clean of any lotions, creams, makeup, sun block, perfume or any other chemicals or skincare products. These can cause allergic reactions, and can impede the transmission of light, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment.

What happens after treatment?

Hair will continue to grow after your treatment. Some of these hairs are being expelled from the newly disabled follicles, and some are from dormant follicles entering their active phase after the treatment. Therefore, you could expect a gradual decrease in hair density as treatments continue.

We use the most advanced, most effective technology and protocols available to deliver the optimum result possible.
