treatment information and answer and questions you may have.
What should I expect from my laser hair removal treatment?
During your treatment you can expect slight discomfort, similar to a rubber-band snap on your skin. A topical
numbing agent is available by prescription and can be applied 60 minutes prior to your treatment if you choose.
You may experience slight redness, bumps, and swelling in the treated area for up to 72 hours. If these conditions
persist, topical creams such as aloe, calamine or hydrocortisone may be applied.
Allow 1 week post treatment for hair to “fall out”. On average, patients experience 20-30% less re-growth after every treatment. On average, patients experience 70-90% reduction in hair growth after a series of treatments. For best results, you will need to maintain a consistent treatment schedule.
What should I expect from my Photofacial/IPL treatment?
During treatment, pigmented areas will turn ash gray and fade to red. Over the next 2-3 days pigmented areas will
darken about 2x3 times their original color. Pigment will then “scab” and begin to flake off in the next 5-7 days.
It is important that you don’t pick at scabbs; this can cause hypo-pigmentation and possible scarring. Most patients will require 2-4 treatments to achieve desired results.

Following laser treatments it is beneficial to schedule maintenance facial treatments, and continue to use
recommended skin care treatment products at home.
Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks post laser treatments. Use of a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30 is critical when receiving any laser treatments, and is recommended for
maintenance of results. Any sun exposure may darken or burn treated areas.
Tylenol is recommended post treatment if continued discomfort occurs. Avoid any additional laser treatments or peels in treated areas for 2 weeks or until complete healing has occurred. You may apply ice packs, cool towels or aloe-vera to alleviate discomfort. Avoid any topical products until skin feels
