Hair Removal

Light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft and hair matrix, this energy is delivered in a way that affects the hair follicle and not the surrounding skin. Thermal damage to the hair bulb causes thinning/lightening of hair and delay in hair regrowth with the possibility of permanent reduction.

• Do not wax, tweeze, bleach, use hair removal creams or electrolysis on treatment area(s) 4 weeks prior.

• Must not have an active tan (sun exposure, outdoor tanning, tanning bed, self tanning creams/lotions/sprays) within 2 weeks and should refrain from tanning throughout the treatment plan.

• Avoid retinol and skincare products containing acidic ingredients (glycolic, salicylic, lactic) for 5 days prior to session.

• Begin taking antiviral prophylaxis treatment 5 days prior if prone to Herpes I or II in the area to be treated.

• Shave treatment area the night before.

• Due to different hair growth stages, multiple treatments, 4-6 weeks apart, are necessary for hair removal. Consider annual maintenance treatments
