Immediately after treatment, you can expect some erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) at the treatment site which may last up to 2 hours or longer. The redness may last up to 2-3 days.
The treated area will feel like a sunburn for a few hours after treatment.
Azul Medspa Laser Clinic has post care products available which are recommended for the most effectiveness. Aloe Vera gel can also be used.
Shedding of hair may occur from 5-14 days after treatment. This appears as new hair growth but is NOT. You can clean and remove this hair by washing or wiping the area with a wet cloth or Loofa sponge, shaving is also okay. DO NOT use any other method of hair removal (ex: plucking, waxing, nair)
Avoid intentional sun exposure or tanning beds. Use sunscreen of SPF 25 or greater; Azul Medspa Laser Clinic has total block available.
When bathing, treat the skin gently (as if you had a sunburn) for the first 24 hours.
Hair re-growth occurs at different rates on different areas of the body. New hair growth will not occur for at least 3 weeks after treatment.
Call for an appointment at the first sign of return hair growth - generally about 6 weeks is optimal.
