Laser Hair Removal Pre/Post 

 

We're proud to offer the most advanced hair reduction technology with the Venus Velocity - this new and advanced diode laser uses an ice cold plate at the surface of the machine to cool the skin during the treatment. This one of a kind technology allows us to treat in 1/2 the time as older machines with minimal discomfort! It is even safe during summer months and after mild sun exposure.

 

  • Even though our state of the art machine, the Venus Velocity is great for MOST skin types, it is still important to avoid regular sun exposure, including tanning beds throughout your laser treatment process. This means the entire 4-12 months you are receiving consistent treatment. It is important for your skin to be as close to its natural color during each session for optimal results.

 

  • Avoid any and all artificial tanning such as lotions, sprays and booths for at least 7 days leading up to your appointment. If you know you'll have a spray tan please plan accordingly and reschedule you're appointment with notice. 

 

  • Shave the day of or the day before your appointment as close to the skin as possible. If you have spots such as your back that you can’t reach then we will help trim your hair before you’re lasered. Please shave all reachable areas, including your back as best you can. 

 

  • Do not apply lotions, oils, creams or perfumes on skin prior to your appointment.

 

  • Remember, we cannot laser any part of your body that is covered with a tattoo or permanent makeup.

 

  • We do not laser pregnant or breastfeeding women under any circumstance.

 

 

 

  • It is normal to have red/pink irritation to the skin and/or feel like you have a mild sunburn for a few hours following your laser hair removal treatment. If necessary you can apply an ice pack, aloe vera gel, sunburn cream or antibiotic ointment.

 

  • It is important to keep all treated areas moisturized after treatment and wear sun screen immediately following your treatment if you’re going to be in the sun. Any moisturizer without mineral oils and alpha-hydroxy acids will work.

 

  • Do not workout, sit in a hot tub/sauna or apply deodorant, make up, fragrant moisturizers and creams for 24 hours following each laser hair removal treatment and as long as any irritation persists.

 

  • Once all irritation has subsided it is OK to apply make up on top of the treated areas, work out, enter a hot tub or sauna and go about your regular routine.

 

  • Avoid sun exposure for up to 1 month to reduce the chance of dark or light spots appearing on the surface of the skin. Use sunscreen SPF25 or higher at all times throughout the treatment and for 1-2 months following.

 

  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. DO NOT USE any other hair removal methods or products on the treated area during the course of your laser treatments (shaving is OK between treatments), as it will prevent you from achieving your best results and may cause scaring. (This mostly refers to waxing, tweezing and epilation methods.)
