PRE & POST TREATMENT INFORMATION

PRE-TREATMENTAFTER-CARE
Before you attend your laser hair removal appointment please ensure that you have prepared as follows:

• Exfoliate the area to remove dead skin build up and any fake tan

• Shave the area 12-24 hours before your treatment. This is important as the laser will then be able to see the blunt end of the hair which will attract the laser light effectively.

• No chemical peels, laser, IPL or radio-frequency treatments in the area for 2 weeks prior

• We cannot treat if you have sunburn so avoid sun exposure on the treatment area for two weeks prior

• No melanin injections within 6 months of your treatment as this can cause a burn

• No oils, lotions or topical numbing on the area to be treated

• Do not wax, pluck or use depilatory creams for four weeks prior to laser treatment (or the laser will not see the hair so you will waste your money).
• Use cool water, ice packs and our recommended post-laser cream to sooth any redness or irritation

• Gently exfoliate with Issada 14% Glycolic Polishing scrub 5 days after treatment to avoid ingrown hairs

• Avoid shaving the treated area for 24 hours

• No waxing plucking, exfoliation, excessive sweating, hot saunas or showers for 24 hours

• Avoid sun exposure and sunbeds for 7 days as the area will have increased susceptibility to sunburn and pigmentation

• Apply SPF50+ liberally for at least a week after treatment (better still, every day forever as a protection against ageing).



PRE-TREATMENTAFTER-CARE
Before you attend your appointment please ensure that you have prepared as follows:

• Avoid any medications or supplements designed to increase blood flow for 3-4 days prior to treatment as these will increase your risk of bruising. Examples include Asprin, Nurofen, Gingko, Vitamins A, C and E

• Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior for the same reason.
• Maximise facial activity by frowning, squinting and working the muscles in the area treated. This will draw the muscle relaxant to the tissue receptors and maximise results

• No facial treatments or rubbing of the treated area for 24 hours

• Avoid laying down for 4 hours.

• No strenuous exercise on the day of treatment.If you experience a mild headache after your anti-wrinkle injections take Paracetamol as needed, but avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medication which could increase the risk of bruising.

PRE-TREATMENTAFTER-CARE
Before you attend your appointment please ensure that you have prepared as follows:

• Avoid medications and supplements that are known to increase blood flow or thin the blood for 3-4 days prior to treatment. Examples include Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Vitamins A, C, E, Ginkgo

• We cannot treat if you have open wounds or infection in the treatment area

• Avoid alcohol for 24 hours prior to treatment as this will increase the likelihood of bruising

• If you have a previous history of cold sores, these may be reactivated by lip injections. To minimise this risk, ask your GP for an antiviral medication.
• Expect redness, swelling and tenderness for up to 48 hours. This is normal and will resolve quickly

• Use only clean make-up brushes on the skin

• Bruising at the injection site is possible and usually resolves in 1-10 days

• Swelling and bruising can often give the appearance of an ‘uneven’ treatment, but this will be assessed at your 14-day post-treatment review

• Minimise alcohol, caffeine, blood-thinning medications and vitamin supplements for 24 hours, after treatment to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling• No exercise/exertion on the day of treatment

•Avoid hot showers, sun exposure, solarium and saunas for 24 hours

• If required, apply ice for 5 – 10 minutes every half hour for up to 6 hours to prevent or minimise bruising and swelling• Arnica pilules or Hirudoid cream (available from the clinic or local chemist) may help to reduce bruising.
