Aftercare Instructions

After you leave (aftercare instructions):

  • Refrain from touching the treated area, avoid direct sunlight, warm baths or long showers, hot, humid air or anything which may irritate the skin for 24 hours
  • If you do touch the treated area, be sure to wash the treated area with a mild soap and then dry it to prevent infection
  • Feel free to apply an antiseptic product or an icepack to cool the skin, avoiding alcohol or oil based products
  • Do not shave, apply makeup or deodorant to the treated area for 24-48 hours. If you do apply makeup, use an appropriate post-electrolysis foundation first
  • After the redness and swelling subsides, you may moisturize the area and resume any exfoliation routines
  • If scabs form, do not remove them or doing so may result in pitting or scarring
  • Contact the office if you experience any adverse effects

For future appointments:

  • If you haven’t scheduled your next appointment, be sure to call us as soon as you see new hair emerging so we can treat it when it is at its weakest stage
  • Avoid caffeine and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated to make the electrolysis more effective
  • Avoid waxing, threading or plucking the areas to be treated since it will make your treatments take longer to complete. Cutting/trimming is best, but shaving is okay as long as you let it grow out enough to be able to grab it for removal during your next treatment
  • If you need to use a prescription numbing cream, be sure to clean the area before applying it, then apply it 30-60 minutes prior to arriving, covering it in plastic wrap so that it doesn’t evaporate.
  • Please be freshly showered and free from strong perfumes
