 Laser Hair Removal Pre/Post Treatment


Before Treatment


• No Accutane use for 6 months prior to treatment.
• Do not tan the areas to be treated for 4 weeks prior to treatment.
• Do not use self-tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.​
• Stop all Retin-A, Retinol, Renova, glycolics, bleaching creams
  and exfoliants use for 3-4 days prior to treatment.
• The treatment area must be free of any open sores, lesions or
  skin infections. For treatment of pigmented skin lesions, you
  should consult a specialist if there is a family or personal history
  of skin cancer or if you have these concerns.​
• If you choose, for an extra charge, you can be injected with a
  local anesthetic for pain relief.
• If you have elected to use a topical anesthetic, do so only after
  reviewing all cautions associated with its use. Apply and use as
  directed prior to arrival.
• Gently wash the area to be treated, removing makeup, lotion, 
  etc. Do not apply any creams, lotions or other products to the
  area except a topical anesthetic (if applicable).




After Treatment



• Scabbing and blistering routinely occur following treatment.
•Cold compresses (not ice) and recommended skin care products may
 be useful to reduce swelling or discomfort. You may take over-the-counter
 pain or anti-inflammatory medication. Hydrocortisone (steroid) cream
 may decrease any itching or skin irritation. Antibiotic ointment (such as
 Neosporin) may be used if skin is broken to prevent infection.
• Your skin will be fragile for 2 to 3 days. Use gentle cleansers, but do
 not rub the skin vigorously and avoid hot water during this time. Skin
 moisturizers may be used immediately and makeup can be applied
 if the skin is not broken.
• Avoid sun exposure and tanning creams during the entire course of
 treatments. Use SPF 30 or greater on the treatment area at all times.
• The treatment area may be left open and uncovered. Do not scrub
  or exfoliate the area. Do not use any products on the treated area
  without first consulting our staff.
• Avoid soaking for 24 to 48 hours. No hot tubs, whirlpools or baths,
  but showers are okay.
• Avoid excessive sweating for 24 to 48 hours. No saunas or vigorous
  working out.
• Keep areas well moisturized and allow scabs to fall off on their own.
  This is an expected occurrence with tattoo/pigment removal.
• Avoid irritants such as Retin-A, Retinol, Renova, glycolics, bleaching
  creams and exfoliants for one week.


Follow Up


Follow up treatments should be scheduled every 4-6 weeks.
• Consistent repeated treatments will produce the best resolution
  of tattoos or pigmented lesion.
