WINTER – THE PERFECT TIME FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Now that it’s officially boot, coat, scarf and gloves season and your all snuggled up to stay warm from the bitter Canadian cold weather, the summer holidays may seem like they are a lifetime a way.

The fabulous news is that winter is actually THE BEST TIME to start your course of laser hair removal treatments. Why? Because you will have less (if any) sun exposure during this time which means your treatments will be much more effective as the skin is lighter.

If you start your course now, that will allow you enough time to achieve a smooth look for summer. Just imagine, no more waxing, shaving, tweezing or dealing with ingrown hairs. That to us, is true freedom. With our regular special offers on laser hair removal treatments, it really is a no brainer!

POST TREATMENT LASER INSTRUCTIONS

Post Treatment Instructions

Avoid:

Aerobic exercise, saunas, hot baths or showers for 24hrs. A quick tepid shower is recommended. Direct sun exposure for 3 days after light sheer treatment Perfume, scented lotions or antiperspirant on the treatment area for 2-4 days. Rubbing the area vigorously for 10-14 days.

Wear cotton clothing next tot he skin the day after treatment rather than fabrics that do not breathe.

Wear light coloured clothing when outside during hot weather. Dark colours attract sun.

Apply an aloe based lotion or vitamin E cream to the treated area.

Apply cold compresses if the area feels tender or warm or is red. This will help to dissipate the heat. You can continuer this intermittently through out the day. Some swelling is normal.

If the area treated has blister or is broken, apply an antibiotic ointment such as polysporin ointment. These blisters usually disappear with in few days. Keep any crusts soft by applying polysporin or lubricating ointment such as Vitamin E.

Take Benadryl (an antihistamine) if you experience any post treatment itching.

For at least the next 1-2 months, a 30-40 SPF should be used on the treated area. Avoid active tanning for 3 days if treated with the laser.

Wax after 1 week (if you are comfortable waxing and if you don’t breakout with it) WHY WAX? because laser makes the roots dead and we need to take dead hair out somehow. Waxing is the deeper exfoliation, this will take out all the dead hair.

Begin to exfoliate the area daily after 2 week to assists the hair to expel. Hair may take 3 weeks or more to expel.

Keep your scheduled appointment for your next treatment. The effects of further treatments are accumulative and your treatments must be completed as set out.

Note:

Follow your pre and post treatments instructions.

The hair cycle varies with age, race, body and hormonal factors. The laser works by disabling the hairs in the active growth cycle at the time of treatment. Other follicles enter the active phase at a laser date and some treated follicles will re-grow. Additional treatments are necessary to disable the majority of follicles in a specific area.

A small group of clients may be non-responsive and will experience significant re-growth beyond 1 year.

PRE TREATMENT LASER INSTRUCTIONS

Pre Treatment Instructions:

The degree of moisture of the skin and the moisture content of the follicles in the area to be treated many have an affection to the results of the treatment so it’d recommended that you moisturize the area to be treated daily and drink plenty of water. Note: Do not Moisturize the day of Treatment.

Photos are to be taken before each treatment. For certain ares you must arrange to have photos taken before your 1st treatment so that you can shave at home. If this is not impossible, the hair will be trimmed by the technologist.

Some clients may find treatment of certain areas sensitive. You may purchase a numbing cream to be applied ahead of time.

Emla must be applied at least 1 hour ahead of time and plastic wrap will be applied. You can purchase Emla at your local pharmacy. Maxilene does not require plastic wrap and must be applied 1/2 hour ahead of time.

If you have a history of herpes, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be required. That area may experience an eruption due to the heat.

Advice me of any changes to your health, including medications.

Do not scrub or irritate the area to be treated on the day of your treatment.

Avoid:

Temporary treatments during the course of your treatment. Clip the hair if you must, but do not tweeze or wax. Tweezing, waxing, electrolosys and bleaches three or four weeks before your first treatment. Vitamin E, Aspirin or Advil products for 48 hours before your treatment. Active sun exposure including tanning beds for approximately 3 days if treated with the light sheer. Make up including lipstick, on any area to be treated. Tend skin 3 days before treatment and 5 days after treatment.

For Deep Exfoliation: Wax after 1 week or week 1/2 only. NO WAXING AFTER IS ALLOWED. REASON: First week hair thin grows out is dead hair which needs to be exfoliated to make them fall out. But due to lack of exfoliation the hair does not fall out! Therefore we wax one week after as a deeper exfoliation. Continue to exfoliate after waxing!
