  • No sun-tanning or self-tanners 4 weeks prior to treatment - Includes spray tans, tanning lotions, tanning beds, sun exposure, etc.

Recommended Post-care

For best results please follow these instructions

After your treatment:

  • Avoid sun exposure and use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen

  • Redness and perifollicular edema (looks like a rash/bug bites) are common and subside in 1-2 days

  • Bruising and swelling are less common and if they do occur it will subside in 1-2 weeks

  • Hair may take up to 2 weeks to fall out. Do not wax or pluck between treatments

  • Hair removal requires a series of treatments.  The number of treatments depends on area and type of hair

  • Avoid heat – hot tubs, saunas, etc. for 1-2 days

  • Avoid skin irritants (Products containing tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, etc.) a few days post-treatment

  • We recommend 6-9 treatments performed every 6 weeks for optimum results.

  • Laser Genesis requires 8-12 treatments at three week long intervals for optimum results.

  • Complete pre-consultation questionnaire if not completed online. This will help us assess your skin and recommend suitable treatment and time frames

  • Safety eyewear must be worn in the treatment room

  • Vantage system will be turned on, settings/parameters modified

  • For laser hair removal treatments the copper tip of hand piece will cool the skin and the     laser beam will safely pass through the epidermis and target the dark hair follicle. There will be a short warm tingling sensation on skin.

  • For laser genesis treatments the hand piece will be 1cm above the skin.

  • This feels like a warm gentle twinge across the skin surface.

  • After treatment, the area maybe cooled with the copper tip or
    with Aloe vera gel.
