Before & After Care

While we do everything we can to take care of your skin while you are in the office undergoing treatment, we are also relying on you to do your part to make the treatment as smooth and successful as possible.  There are a few things you can do before and after a treatment to reduce complications and ensure you are getting the most out of each session.


  • Make sure the hair is long enough - for most people this is 2-3 days worth of growth

  • Gently exfoliate your skin

  • If using numbing cream, apply it to the area 1 hr early and cover with plastic wrap

  • remove any makeup on areas to be treated

  • Increase your water intake

  • Relax!


  • Do not touch the treated area

  • Avoid sun exposure

  • Do not apply heavy makeup for 24-48 hours.  (Mineral makeup and similar breathable makeup is OK)

  • If sensitive to the touch, apply ice or aloe gel to the area

  • Do not exfoliate for 2-3 days

  • When in doubt, treat it like you would a sunburn
